iPhone battery criticized
Strategy Analytics has released research that shows battery life as the iPhone's most dissatisfying feature. The buyer analysis firm concluded that the most common owner of an iPhone falls into the 25-44 age group, with a $50,000+ income -- they are also likely employed full-time and over 80-percent own an iPod as well.
The report shows that the iPhone, on average, is utilized for web browsing and e-mailing much more than other smartphones, with two-thirds of the surveyed individuals using the services daily. Heavy use of the phone's web-based features leads to battery life issues, the leading cause for dissatisfaction of the surveyed customers.
The study's primary findings highlight customers' desire for Apple to continue innovating new features and improving style, while factoring in a strong need for improved battery performance.
