We reserved a test day (total duration of 7h45) to check the real battery capacity of the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G, separating the results into several steps. Some basic settings are standardized on all tests to have a better measurement of the result, namely: screen brightness from 250 to 300 lumens, automatic refresh rate and vibration at the lowest possible intensity.
The test uses manual actions to modify applications with each new step, in addition to leveraging Robotnik, a robotic arm built by the Oficina da Net programming team to assist steps that require screen scrolling or other actions for long periods of time. .
