@AnkerOfficial@AnkerTechnical does Anker have anything to compete with Quick Charge 4.0 in the works? Mainly Qualcomm plans to add “Triple Charge” which will allow power to flow through three paths and keep the device heat in check.
The problem with this is that only a handful of manufacturers have adopted QC 4.0, so to even try to get 5.0 to be mainstream would be a chore.
Not to mention that heat is and will always be an issue and so will the degraded battery longevity.
Yeah, I think manufacturer adoption for this will be near non-existent. I mean, iPhone’s don’t support any QC protocol, and Samsung is still on 3.0. It’s a nice idea, but isn’t going to really make much a difference outside of the three Chinese phones that will include it.
The batteries are replaceable but you have to have specialized equipment or take it to a professional to do so. It’s not as easy as popping off the back and swapping out the battery. Most if not all high end phones these days are glued together. They say it’s for water resistance but it’s really just planned obsolescence.
Phones are getting too thin these days I would much rather have a phone that is a little bit thicker with a much larger battery.
I also think the same ipx rating could be achieved with screws torqued down to a specific torque and rubber or silicone seals and a little bit of thread lock. The SIM/SD tray is a good example of rubber seals being ipx7 rated.
