Odds are the battery in the new iPhone will be either just as efficient what's in the current iPhone (typically/habitually the leading/best battery in the business), or it will be better.
I just don't see what you are complaining about.
Apple's battery is always the best or near best in the industry and gets better every year. Next year's iPhone will be the same in that the battery life will either be the same or better. Asking them to make it super-duper, "extra best" (just for you!), and to the detriment of other features/aspects of the device just doesn't make any sense to me as a request.
From the very beginning, my complaint is that my iPhone battery life is not good enough. I'm sorry you joined in mid-stream, but that's what I was talking about all thread.
Why do you think 1mm in extra thickness, TOTALLY DEVOTED TO BATTERY, wouldn't give 25% more life? Have you done the math? It's not a straight proportional thing - adding 1 mm to the total thickness of the phone would add far more than (1mm/9mm)% to the total battery size, because the phone is not currently totally made of battery, so adding some size to the phone that IS totally battery would have an outsized result on the battery itself.
I am complaining about THE FACT THAT MY PHONE DIES AT ABOUT 5 PM EVEN THOUGH I USE IT LESS THAN I WOULD LIKE TO ALL DAY. Is that clear enough? I don't CARE how that compares to other phones. I want a phone that doesn't die on me before the sun goes down. And I sleep until 830 AM! When I hear that they are making the phone THINNER instead of adding battery life, that upsets me. Does that make sense to you? Do you really need a phone that.s 1.5mm thinner? Wouldn't notice, would you? Well I'd notice if that 1.5mm was spent on battery, and a lot of other people are just like me.
You can read through this thread and find plenty of other people who want more battery life "just for them". That makes it not "just for us" but for everyone. So go screw.
