So I was just thinking about battery life, and how smartphone makers choose to release a phone with not so great battery life. In the past year I have had the nexus 4, iPhone 5, and note 2. The only phone with great battery life was the note 2, and that is because it had such a large battery. My question is how can these phone designers, and the makers feel good about sending a smartphone to the market with such crappy battery life? It is not like they don't know it because there is all kinds of beta testing with the phones before they release them. Is it that Apple, Google, HTC, Samsung, and the rest of the gang just don't care? Is it they would rather have a small thin phone than have good battery life? Have we as consumers just said you can put whatever battery size you want. We will still buy the phone? It just seems like this would be something that is rather important in the phone design process. Maybe not.
