A cell phone is good. A dead cell phone is not. The latest cell phones running on KitKat and Lollipop Android OS are the ones with the greatest battery backup ever. Some of the latest flagship models can even last 2 days on a single rechare on light-medium usage.

Sure the battery life can be extended by very careful use and by following simple steps. Turn off the backlight, turn-off Bluetooth, stop searching for signal, stop searching for Wi-Fi, switch off the vibrate function, and avoid using unnecessary options. What if the phone itself offers a lengthy talk time and an incredible stand by time?
