Do the battery test reports really serve any purpose?Whenever a new deice - be it a laptop, or smartphone - almost all tech websites come up with their versions hands on reviews. An integral part of these reviews is the battery tests supposedly conducted by these reviewers.
But, do the test results really stand the test under the real world conditions? In my own experience, I am strongly convinced that they do not. There could be many reasons to it. One of them, presumably is that the tests are conducted under standard conditions. They use a stronger WiFi, or use a few official apps. Real world differs much from this scenario. We have varied network speeds, both cellular data and WiFi. There are a huge number of apps we use. Most of them will keep working in the background. There are a few apps - referred to as rogue apps that may have erratic behavior (just because of bad coding, or overdone advertisements).
What are your experiences with respect to the reported battery test results and your personal experiences? Do share your own experiences so that we have a healthy discussion on the matter.
