Battery life concerns mobile users

Mobile phone users seem to think that the battery life in their phones are pretty poor, and this stops them from using games, music and TV applications on their mobile more frequently, according to a new study.

Topping the wish list of key mobile device features in 14 of the 15 countries surveyed is "two days of battery life during active use," indicating that insufficient battery life is a concern to consumers.
It seems that there is indeed interest in some of the new kinds of applications being provided and planned for mobiles, such as multiplayer games, video conferencing and mp3 playing, but that people fear draining their batteries down to nothing when doing so. Consumers want phones that they can do these things on and have confidence that they will not loose power whilst on the move.

It's just common sense and I don't know why the makers have only now realised. What good is a phomne with an MP3 player or internet on it if it has no power when you need it?I'd personally rather not use the fancy features so that I know my phone will still have power at the end of the day - then charge it at night. Maybe if batteries had longer lives, I'd be willing to take a look at some of the more advanced stuff.
