Nokia Conversations "What's more important than battery life"

Poll results taken from Nokia Conversations

While the largest segment of users here prioritised battery life above everything else, it was only 38% of the vote. Conversely, 62% of users didn't rate battery life as the most important aspect of their device. It's a curious set of results; the least popular aspect here is device size. Obviously, the lower the volume, the less energy can be physically stored. However, Connectivity (25%), Multimedia (17%), and Screen size (13%); are all energy draining aspects.

While phones are mobile devices, this does hint to how that most people are using these devices indoors around urban areas where a charging point is never far away. That said, there is still room for the likes of the E71/72 with Nokia's 'hero' BP-4L driving a relatively small screen which will run in the field for days on end before needing a recharge.
