  • Imo if apple really prioritise battery then they wouldn't keep going for mega thin. The 5/5s is super slim at 7.6mm and some would argue that's too thin. No one really thought the 4/4s were fat at 9mm and I personally would have taken a 5/5s with the same 9mm with a much bigger battery life. It seems like Apple have an obsession with thinness and sure thinness looks great but eventually too thin is just too thin to be held comfortably. The rumoured iPhone 6 is to be 6mm thin with curves and if the m8 is anything to go buy then that will be one slippery phone. Is 6mm necessary?. the thinness game imo is just as bad as the pixel game. At this stage I would rather have a 8mm thin phone with awesome battery instead of 6mm with a OK battery. On Android they going 2k screen which is annoying as hell, I would rather keep the same 1080p screen with better screen technology etc instead of pushing unnecessary pixels and wasting battery. I ask would you take a iPhone 6 that's 6mm thin with a 1800mah battery or would you take a iPhone 6 with the same 7.6mm thinness of the 5s with 2500mah battery? Posted via the Android iMore App!
  • That's fair. Thinness and battery life.
  • I agree 100%. It's absolutely frustratig that Apple continues to do nothing about battery life even with one of the worst rated phones by consumers when it comes to battery life. Also, I hate the race to have the thinness device, it's such a waste. If Apple focused on having the best battery life, they would be better off with that.
  • The annoying thing for me is that imo the thinness race and ppi race is over. You don't hear anyone that's mass consumers saying oh look my phone is 1mm thinner or has this much more ppi. I was playing with my brothers 5s and I'm thinking man that is slim, his not complaining about it being "fat" his complaining about battery life. When I'm using my s4 I'm not thinking oh man its 440ppi, I wish it was over 500ppi.. Phone makers are just doing unnecessary things imo. Battery life and camera is what phone makers should be trying to make mega strides in. There's no need to waste resources on trying to put 2k in a 5" phone or trying to reach 5mm thinness. Those races should be over, eventually the return of pushing more pixels and thinness is just counterintuitive to battery life. Sure apple can get good battery life with 6mm thinness, it would better if they concentrated on getting amazing battery life with 8mm thinness. The tech world and real world will get over the 6mm and 2k screens from Android very quickly, they will go on and on if they can give us 2-3 days of usage without having to coddle it. Right now 1 day is easy and sometimes getting through some of 2nd day is possible. I just hate the direction we are heading. Posted via the Android iMore App!
  • I totally agree. It seems phone makers are all avoiding to build the phone we really want. A phone with an extraordinary battery live, best camera and camera software available and at around 4.7"
