We all now the value of a larger battery in today's smartphones. Just look at the RAZR Maxx vs any other currently offered phone. The battery life of the standard smartphone borders on being ridiculous.
If as consumers we simply stop purchasing phones with sub-par batteries manufacturers will be forced to adapt to consumer demands.
I personally believe the average consumer is not well versed enough to see such. How many non tech savvy folks do we all know that couldn't create a shortcut to an app no less comprehend mAh's in a battery. We need to help educate those with less knowledge so we can all reap the long term benefits of being smarter consumers.
