Vernee Apollo Lite Power Consumption Explained

by Dimitris Economou 4

Lately, more and more discussions are made concerning battery technology and the progress that has been achieved. Or rather, hasn’t been achieved. And as hardware has become adequately powerful in all categories, users no longer want just powerful performance for their smartphones, they want longer battery life and better user experience. More and more people want high “Practicability” instead of raw power.

As one of the most important chip makers in the world, MediaTek has achieved great success in middle-range and low-end markets. However at the same time, it is striving to break into the high-end market as well so this year MediaTek released its high-end chipset, the  Helio X20. Helio X20 is, in fact, one of MediaTek’s flagship products in 2016. The 20nm process this chip adopts brings very powerful performance and along with the architecture of “three-cluster deca-core” CPU prolongs the battery life to a great degree. The 10 processing cores are switched on or off smartly via the allocating system – Corepilot 3.0. According to MediaTek, the adoption of this technology decreases overall power consumption by nearly 30%.

    … “and it’s been in stock for sale for a long time”… Errr – no! Maybe, just maybe stock has been distributed to resellers this week. I’m told mine should be shipped later this week. The only review I’ve seen so far has been by S7yler who says in his video that his is not actually a final production model. So it might be more accurate to say that it has been in pre-sale for a while, or been announced /rumoured for a long time.
    Only ranting because I’m waiting for mine?

      Update us later on the device. Been curious about the performance and etc

    So all 10 cores are only activated in benchmarks, no wonder it lags.

    Just use two phones like me: Redmi Note 3 Pro main phone and one battery monster K6000 Pro as a backup phone. 😉 Battery life problems solved.
