If you think it's not, you're crazy. It's a constant tug of war between the software guys wanting more power for new features and hardware guys saying that the battery life will be crap. Add more battery capacity and the software side will expand to fill it. Or have you not been awake to watch the computer industry for the past 30 years. Gee, isn't it weird that your computer still takes roughly the same time to boot and load Word as it always has?

Clearly, Apple's design criteria favored size and weight at the expense of battery life. If people's personal criteria place battery life first, that indicates maybe an iPhone isn't the best phone for them, not that Apple is evil or ignorant. It is also clear, millions of people agree with Apple's design criteria.

So you're saying you agree with me now. That's better.

Their obsession with thin is ruining some of their best products because they favour form over function.

They "could" have kept using the 30 pin dock connector, made the phone slightly thicker and used the additional space for more internal battery. I know they've probably being planning to phase out the 30 pin connector for some time, lighning doesn't seem to be something they've cobbled together as a work-around but it's still annoying that systems like the Juice Pack even need to exist.

Is it? How?

If Apple sold otherwise identical phones and the thinner one sold millions of units over the thicker one with more power, then it would be clear.

But in the absence of that evidence you've just made this up.

If they didn't agree, they would have bought a different phone or would be on here, or other online forums, complaining about battery life. You have zero evidence a thicker, heavier phone would sell.

This is all moot, because it's not going to happen, but I hope the 6 people on this forum who want a fatter, heavier phone keep complaining on MR because it's always been effective in the past.

I know, there ought to be government standards for how long a phone battery should last and a government workers to test and enforce the regulations.

Why is everyone talking about the iphone when the article is about mophie. I'm debating whether to get one. There are a few options out there. Right now I'm torn between the mophie www.mophie.com and the juicebox www.juiceboxpower.com, at 30% off, I'm sorta leaning toward the juicebox. Can anyone out there shed some light on this matter. Thanks.

See post #11 for who took the thread off course.
