Google improves the battery life of Pixel smartphone in an update

But now with new Smart Battery feature in Pixel will analyse every battery consuming operation on the phone and keep track of the usage over time and predict near-accurate batter life expectancy.

As you can see in Google's modelling below, the battery usage chart with Smart Battery isn't just a linear progression anymore.

With the new update, Pixel phones will analyze battery usage from similar days and times and use that information to predict battery life.

On Android phones by default, your estimated remaining battery life is based on pretty simple use habits. The Google Pixel 2 XL comes with a 6-inch QHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 1440x2880 pixel resolution.

Pixel customers can perceive the new battery forecasts via Settings Battery, which will now demonstrate personalized battery valuation. Google claims that it will assume you will continue to use 10 percent of battery per hour based on your previews hours usage.

"To fix this, we built an on-device model that evaluates how you use your phone's battery over time".

One of Android 8.0 Oreo's new features is the new actionable battery menu, which gives you far more details and options than the previous design. To get a more accurate view, you can tap the battery icon and see a graph. In October, the search giant came up with Device Health Services, a battery management application, and this new model is expected to have added that. The Battery section will reveal both the percentage of battery life remaining and also an estimate of how many minutes this translates to. And this hampers the user experience greatly.

"This means that if you're like me and love to binge-watch YouTube on your way home, your phone will include that extra battery drain from Corgi videos in your estimate!"
