Battery life for smartphones

Hi folks! So as you know, I used to be a huge BlackBerry fan and used the devices all of the time. Then I moved over to the iPhone and never looked back. I also have many friends that used Android based smartphones.

The biggest thing I have noticed outside of BlackBerries is the huge issue with battery life. I’m never sure what it is exactly that these other phones do that cause them to drain batteries so much more faster than BlackBerry devices but I have to say it’s annoying. Don’t get me wrong, there are a million and one ways to conserve power, but if you actually want to use all the features on your smartphone, it will die quickly.

I think it’s time for the industry to put some effort into research and development for batteries as opposed to the latest new features. Maybe then we can have an iPhone or an Android smartphone with long term battery life!
