Smart phones these days are really incredible. Not only from the perpsective of what they can do and deliver into your hand, but the energy efficiency in which they do so compared to other electronic devices that we regularly used for the very same purposes – TV, computers, xBox….
In terms of energy usage, these other devices when compared to a smart phone use more energy in variouis multiples. For example, compared to your smart phone, a typical laptop uses 14x the power, a desktop 49x, the xBox One 61x and a large screen TV – 72x. That’s a lot more energy consumption per minute if you can get the same service through your phone.
So go ahead and use your smartphone as much as your data plan will allow and recharge without guilt.
