japan.internet.com recently reported on the results of a survey by goo Research into smartphone recharging.
Between the 7th and 10th of January 2013 1,082 members of the goo Research monitor panel completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 52.9% of the sample were male, 16.3% in their teens, 18.0% in their twenties, 22.0% in their thirties, 16.0% in their forties, 15.9% in their fifties, and 11.8% aged sixty or older.
Not surprisingly, I too am disappointed in my phone’s battery life. Although I don’t use it much, the battery has a bad habit of leaking power – or more likely, Android has a bad habit of eating the battery when I least expect it. On the other hand, as I type this I wonder if the fact that Android can display a usage percentage makes people feel the battery being used up faster versus older phone where there was just a three segment display? That would be an interesting psychological survey!
