What are the first few things you look for when you want to buy a tablet? The answer definitely depends on each one’s preferences, tastes and needs, but a few factors will certainly play a major role in all of your decisions – screen quality, performance and battery life.
There was a lot of excitement surrounding HTC’s Droid DNA – the first 1080p smartphone to hit the “Free World” – before its unveiling, but once the 5-incher got introduced, the excitement started to tone down in the wake of two major concerns popping up.
If there’s one area we haven’t seen enough innovation and development in, that’s definitely battery life, with the battle being more or less left at Motorola’s discretion. The Razr Maxx and Maxx HD, with their 3,300 mAh batteries, are the clear leaders in the autonomy department, but they still feel like they can be pushed further forward.
The Nexus 4 is going to soon be launched at which point we’ll have a plethora of comparisons out between Google’s latest flagship handset and its main competitors, whether they run Andorid, iOS or Windows Phone 8.
What better way to stir up some competition than to claim your product is better than someone else’s in a very public way? LG has done just that by claiming that the Optimus G has better battery life than the Samsung Galaxy S III. LG supposedly proved this using a variety of tests that show that the Optimus G battery takes a better beating than Samsung.
With (some of) the hype surrounding Apple’s iPhone 5 finally toning down, it’s time to clear our heads, let our egos rest, and try to objectively answer the age-old question – is the new iPhone better than all Android phones?

Now, we already know most things about the HTC One X+, the details of which have been confirmed by its recent FCC filing. But HTC apparently isn’t quite satisfied yet and is going to make some final tweak to the phone.
According to a Phone Arena tipster, there has never been a Razr Maxx HD version planned, so not only it won’t come in October, it will never come period. The only Razr HD will also only feature an 8 MP camera, and not a 13 MP shooter, according to the same source.
Those who are constantly on the road know how much of an annoyance it is to have your phone die on you in the middle of a packed day. In many cases, one of the main battery-guzzling culprits are mobile data connections. While the best solution is to only turn data on when you need it, it can be quite a chore to manually flick the switch back and forth on a regular basis. We know what you’re thinking – if only there’s a less tedious way to conserve your phone’s battery life – but still let you fetch those important…
There are some people who don’t like smart phones. It isn’t because they don’t like the touch sensitive screen, it’s not an ease of use issue, but rather they don’t like the battery life. In the good old days of feature phones, you could charge up your phone once a week, you could talk for hours, and, if you battery showed only one bar left, you knew it would work for the rest of the day.
