    Phone makers, please listen to this message:

    DO NOT MAKE THE BATTERIES SMALLER.

    Keep them the current size and just triple the potential storage please!

    I don't wan't a teeny-tiny battery to make space for 24-core CPU and a GTX Titan in my phone. I won't more than a day of heavy use out a phone without having to carry a huge phone around (a la Galaxy Note, it's just to big for me)

    I will start a petition for this to be discussed in the house of commons if you ignore my request!

    You will be ignored until Apple decide to increase battery life. Its a sad but true fact that innovation in phones seems to come everywhere except for the battery and it seems Apple will have to do it before people follow suit. Just need somebody to work a normal day away from their desk in the design office and they will realise current battery life is woeful!

    I don't think Apple are the only headliners in the technology world.

    Personally I'd like to see the carbon nanotube batteries that were being heralded as the next generation in battery technology not too long ago. Sadly that seems to have disappeared.

    Yup, Apple the true innovators....cough lol cough

    Their idea of an upgrade is to flatten icons, industry-changing stuff right there.

    And I'd sign that petition in a heartbeat. Trouble is that instead of that mega cpu and/or gpu the "fashion victim" mentality will want to use the increase in energy density to deliver an even thinner phone rather than something useful like day-long running. It's one of the reasons I defected from Samsung to LG - and now I get three days between charges on my usual light use.

    Getting back to the new anode - how's the stability? I've read more and more "concern" pieces about the explosive nature of current batteries. And it's become more difficult to get those delivered through the post.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Seconded!

    I got an XL battery for my Galaxy S3 (doubling the thickness, but also making it easier to hold in my opinion) Can't imagine going back to a regular capacity battery now.

    I do hope this "thinnest device ever, who cares about the battery life!" fad dies off sometime soon...

    I couldn't care less about another millimeter being taken of this years model of <insert phone here>, but I too would also like a phone that had much better battery life. Even, if it was a little fatter than last years model.

    Absolutely... It seems that we never get better battery life. Thats teh reason I'm sticking with my LG G2, the battery life is fantastic :-)
