We’re just going to say it: in this day and age, there is almost nothing more disheartening than that moment your phone flashes to let you know that your battery is low – especially when you’re out and have no way to charge your phone at that time. We’ve all been in a bunch of situations where it’s been super inconvenient to be left without a phone that’s powered, which is why it sucks to have a device with poor battery life. So it blew our minds when we heard that the Sony Xperia Z3 can last 2 whole days with a fair amount of usage – that’s incredible, and means that we won’t have to deal with these problems any longer:
You’ve been trying to get their attention for weeks, and they seem to finally be responding by texting you first! Except, you know, you’re on like 1%, so you can’t make the most of the situation. By the time you get your phone charged, your crush has likely gotten bored and moved on. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is how your great love story got nipped in the bud.
If you’re directionally challenged – like I am! – it is a scary, scary feeling to be out on the streets with a dead phone battery. Have you tried to navigate Andheri East with no access to your maps? Have you?! *shudder*
You have a long commute ahead, but nothing to distract you because your phone has run out of juice. Your music, your books, your games – everything’s on that one device. Guess you’re now going to have to rely on your own brain for company. Ugh, the horror.
Nothing spoils the mood like your phone dying just as things are getting good.
For someone who has major #FOMO (fear of missing out), a dead phone battery can cause quite the anxiety. What if there’s an epic Twitter fight going on and you can’t watch it unfold? What if everyone in your messenger group is making brilliant plans but you’re left out of it? What if Kim Kardashian has released another nude photo but you can’t get to it before the rest of the world?
You’ve got your alarm set for 7am every morning, but what happens when your phone dies in the middle of the night? Even worse is when your alarm rings in the morning, you manage to hit snooze, and then your battery dies.
You know how you can call your mom ten thousand times in a row and she totally doesn’t think it’s a big deal that she didn’t hear her phone? On the other, if she calls you twice but can’t reach you, she freaks out, wondering where you are, who you’re with, and what happened to you. Nothing is scarier than a mom who’s flipping out. Nothing.
You see you have a message from your bae, and you open your messenger application to reply. However, mid-sentence, your phone dies and you can’t charge your phone. Meanwhile, Bae thinks you’ve ignored them – stupid ‘last seen at’ functionality, causing all these problems – and goes into a tizzy about how much you just don’t care about them anymore.
Maybe you partied too hard at night or maybe you just can’t get a ride home – whatever the reason, you realise that you have to spend the night on a friend’s couch. But your phone’s not going to last the night and you don’t have your charger with you. How on earth are you supposed to wake up (no alarm), find your way home (no maps), and entertain yourself while doing so (no music)? It’s all your problems rolled into one.
You’re out, you just get served what is possibly the best meal of your life, and you’re consumed with a need to share it with the rest of the world. But your phone is practically dead and so your camera has been automatically disabled. How will the rest of your world believe this magnificence in front of you if there’s no photographic evidence of it?
Considering we’re all so dependent on our phones, it really can be a big problem when your battery dies. Which is why we’re all so obsessed with picking a phone that has fantastic battery life, and the Sony Xperia z3 fits the bill here completely. Like I said, the battery on that phone can last 2 days, which is crazy when you think that most of us have to plug in multiple times a day. So now you can do more, for longer, without interruption – and avoid all the problems listed above. Sounds amazing!
