If anything,I find my actual hands-on time w/my phones has steadily DECREASED
As smartphone quality has increased across the board,one has to spend increasingly less & less time tinkering w/it to work as desired,contributing to an already improved battery life.
With that said,there's always going to be a segment of the smartphone/ANDROID community that battery life is going to be an issue,whether it's a removable/imbedded battery,due to the manner in which they use ther phones,not only as their primary device of choice,but,the only
device they use for all media/communications,including TVs/PCs/Music/Camera,etc.,all day everyday.
Expecting any device to last more than 10-12 HRS w/such use is totally unrealistic @ this time.Battery life has definitely improved,but,if one is expecting the INFINITY BATTERY
on any device,don't hold your breath.
