According to a survey conducted by Nokia, battery life is the most important feature of cell phones. Apparently, customers of Nokia, the globe's largest maker of mobile phones, prefer battery life more than design as well as "smart" features of contemporary mobile phones.

Apparently, just under 38% of respondents said that they would be content with the most basic phone, just so long as it kept on working. As some people pointed out in the comments, it does not really matter what their phone can potentially do if it is "run out of juice". The majority of people are prepared to make some compromises for better specifications and features, though. Data-connectivity was the key ‘must-have’, with 25% of the vote. Access to email and the Web at all times, whether through the browser or through apps, is fast-becoming the norm. The days of talking about ‘going online’ will soon be over, because we’ll never be offline.

Around 17% of you would sacrifice battery life for multimedia features. There are not many phones nowadays that don’t do dual-service as a music player, and increasingly, people are using their phones to watch video on the move. Being able to create media, in the form of photos and videos, is another popular requirement.

13% of you would be content with a lower battery rating so long as your device had a large screen – mobile web, gaming and email all require a bigger screen. The least popular answer was size. Not that many people are concerned about carrying around larger devices – an interesting result since it is not long since the most fashionable phones were the smallest ones available. Now it seems that the tide has turned to "big and beautiful".
