apple_batteryAh battery life, the bane of a smartphone user’s existence. Clearly classified as a first world problem, but can give you grey hairs and increased blood pressure any day of the week. A recent poll of over 3,100 9to5Mac readers indicates that most are not satisfied with current-generation iPhone battery life.

Over the last three to four years the only noticeable change in the smartphone market has been an increase in screen size. Sure, specs have advanced in leaps and bounds at the same time, but to the average user it isn’t completely evident – unless you buy a budget device.

In a world of ever growing screens, few have tried to make a proper flagship device in a smaller size. The only exceptions are the previous iPhone 5 models and last year’s Xperia Z1 Compact.
