How could overclocking improve smartphone battery life?
bcastle 2 years ago
While discussing mobile OSes today (android is better, not iOS is better, no android is.........) my android loving office mate threw me a curveball by arguing that it was easy to improve android battery life through overclocking. Huh? That is totally counterintuitive to me. I've overclocked many a PC in my day, and the main thing I noticed as a side effect was increased heat. Heat requires energy, and more heat requires more energy, right? Is something different in android world that makes that untrue, or was he just throwing out a bogus claim? How could overclocking possibly result in better battery life?
