How many hours can Google Pixel Fold enjoy YouTube's 4K video on a large screen that opens?

The first foldable smartphone ``

Google Pixel Fold '' in the Google genuine smartphone `` Pixel '' series will appear on Monday, July 31, 2023. There is a vertically long display on the outer cover, and when you open it, you can enjoy the contents on the display mounted inside. In addition, Android 13 installed in Pixel Fold is also optimized for foldable smartphones, so I tried touching it and running benchmarks to see how it actually works.

So, as a result of using it over several days, the battery became 0%, so I decided to charge it. Charging is via USB Type-C connection, and the battery capacity is standard 4821mAh.

I checked the remaining battery level while charging using an application that can monitor the battery status Battery Mix . It took about 2 hours with fast charging to fully charge from 0% to 100%.

Next time, I checked how many hours YouTube 4K video can be played. With the display open, I switched to full screen and set the volume and display brightness to maximum. Playback started around 5:52 pm.

At 12:33, about 6 hours and 40 minutes after the start of playback, it consumed up to 10% of the remaining battery power and asked whether to turn on the super battery saver.

Then, at around 1:15, 7 hours and 23 minutes after the start of playback, it shut down and the screen went black.

You can see the movie shot with time lapse where the 4K video was played until the battery ran out and the power turned off with Pixel Fold from the following.

Looking at the transition of the remaining battery power with Battery Mix, it looks like this. The temperature of the device (brown polygonal line) has risen to nearly 40 degrees at maximum. This time, we played 4K video at maximum brightness and maximum volume, which was an extreme condition, but for normal use, the battery lasts longer. Google's official technical specifications say, `` Battery life is 24 hours or more, and the longest battery life is 72 hours. The battery lasted for a day and a half just by ``browsing the website with a browser'' and ``playing games''.

Google Pixel Fold is accepting reservations at the time of article creation, and the price is 253,000 yen including tax.
