What about you? Do you satisfied with your phone’s battery life?
Many people face a problem of a lack of charge every day and ask their friends, colleagues and accidental pedestrians for a charger or to call somebody. The paradox is a telephone dies at a very inopportune moment every time. For example, you quarrel with your girlfriend and a battery is flat! But it seems to her that you hang up the phone, while your phone is really dead.
Today’s market of smartphones is full of a variety of models and they come loaded with all sorts of features. Everyone can find his cup of tea: if you loves taking selfies- improved camera is for you or maybe you appreciate a clear image and good-quality display- people takes care of it due to the retina display. But, nevertheless, you need to pay your attention to a battery life of a phone you are going to buy soon, whether it is long or short. According to the statistics, (IDC survey) revealed that 56% of Android buyers, 49% of iPhone buyers and 53% of Windows Phone buyers said that battery life was an important reason for them while selecting a particular device.
I think it will be curious for you to look at the results of another research. An issue was to find out what phone model has the longest battery life.
