There is probably no truth to this Google statement, but this search was extremely strange.
A curiosity can be found in the small print: the new Pixel 8 smartphones again do not have better battery life than their predecessors. In fact, internally tested battery life is worse than the Pixel 6 series. It’s hard to imagine that’s really the case.
Basically, Google has been talking about 24 hours of battery for years. This is a running time that is already possible with average usage. In internal testing, this number is usually exceeded. The Pixel 8 was given 31 hours, which was also the case for the Pixel 7, 7 Pro and 7a.
out of curiosity is Now, of all things, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are devices that even achieved 34 hours of runtime in internal tests. So more than all of its successors. From our experience, it doesn’t really make sense.
Are these values rolled?
Even if devices with the Tensor G2 chipset didn’t last particularly long, they were certainly better than the Tensor G1 models. And I can’t imagine the Pixel 8 devices won’t be on top of that. The chipset is good and the displays are good too.
In general, of course, it’s about marketing value. Manufacturers want to advertise something, but they can’t go out of their way. Sometimes weird numbers like this come out and old devices seem to be better than brand new hardware.
