Thinness vs. battery life is an age-old question, but an important one at that. Device manufacturers are constantly raising the bar for how much juice they can fit in a slim-shelled handset, just take a look at the Razr Maxx with its 3,300mAh battery. Still, manufacturers like HTC say that they would rather focus on battery life than make an incredibly thin device. Sure, handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X are sleek, but are they “thin enough“.
When you walk into a carrier store or are scouting out a phone online, do you immediately check the battery life, or are you more intrigued by the device’s appearance? In layman’s terms, which spec is more important to you, thinness or battery life?
Personally, I prefer a thinner device. Now if only the Oppo Finder would make it to the US.
