Huawei dishes out power banks to Apple Stores customers on iPhone XS, XS Max, XR release day

Since the inception of iPhone and to date, Apple haven’t done its part to address the the growing concern about its the battery of its iPhone lineup.

Apple’s iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are claimed to be fueled with 2658mAh and 3174mAh capacity batteries respectively – something even the Cupertino-headquarted tech giant opted not to divulge in their recent hardware event.

Apple claimed that the battery juices of iPhone XS and iPhone XS lasts 30 minutes and 1.5 hours longer than the iPhone X, respectively. That’s just an incremental, the iPhone XS have the same battery pack of the last year’s iPhone X. Meaning, Apple have done it through software engineering in order to achieve the 30 minutes more battery life on the iPhone XS.

Just to give you a viewpoint, mid-end Android smartphones like Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, Xiaomi Mi Max Prime and Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro features an enormous 5000mAh battery capacity.And they costs barely $185, $220 and $31, respectively, in the Philippine market.

It’s worth noting that the trillion-dollar company tackles the battery life issue by reducing power consumption as compared to top-end Android smartphones. Apple, however, still faces the dispute from the industry.

Trolling Apple with regard to iPhone’s battery concern, the Chinese manufacturer Huawei roamed to the streets outside Singapore’s Apple Store and handed out power banks to the customers who had queued up outside to get hands on the latest iPhones.

Huawei handed out as many as 200 of the its 10000mAh power banks to the people queuing outside the Apple Store. Photos and video clips of the power bank distributions quickly went viral on social media.

Earlier this month, the Chinese mobile phone maker surpassed Apple to become the second largest smartphone vendor in the entire world.

Huawei is prepping up to launch the first set of smartphones, the Mate 20 and Mate 10 Pro, to ship with its new 7-nanometer Kirin 980 SoC in London on October 16.
