Do you have statistics that the public is bothered by Android's battery life? Have you ever thought that the general public outnumbers the businessmen by a wide margin?
Android is selling at a rate of 550,000 devices everyday and it won't be selling that much if people are bothered by its battery life. The battery life is good for a day or two. It is decent.
You are right that people choses Android for its overall better experience over Nokia phones as evident by Android's fast growth rate and the sharp decline of Nokia's marketshare. Nokia won't be on a decline if the public cares so much about a long battery life. Nokia is known to have long battery life but the greater public don't care about that.
The point is, the public prefers Android devices over Nokia phones. The numbers don't lie. Whatever battery life advantage Nokia has is negligible and immaterial to the public and the sales of Android devices proves it. The public cares about ease of use, the ui and user experience and a decent battery life that last a day or two is good enough for them.
The wise public all over the world votes with their wallets and they choses Android phones over Nokia's offerings. Now that's a fact.

The iPhone has always been about the user experience. Of course, tech specs play a role in this, but a secondary one. The philosophy is, if something operates smoothly, then it is irrelevant what the CPU speed is, because it is doing its job.

There are lots of reasons why Android is being chosen by people, but that does not mean that they are not bothered by Android's pathetic battery life. Maybe they prefer the smoother interface and excellent usability over the battery life, but wise businessmen who need to be connected all the time would think twice before getting an Android.

I have the Omnia HD (Symbian S60v5 using HX-V11 custom rom), Wave (Bada 2.01), Omnia 7 (WP7.5 Mango), Galaxy S (Gingerbread 2.3.3) and just recently purchased the Galaxy S 2 (standard firmware) overall Samsung is king as all the handsets work well but overall my favourite one to use is the oldest one of the lot the Omnia HD as battery life, WiFi, screen size is near the perfect balance but that is not to say that for example the Omnia 7 can't match it or Wave but overall that is the way it works for me, the worst one is the Galaxy S but that is probably due the file system that handset users.
Speed wise nothing matches the SGS2 ...

Stop generalising people and dictating what they can and can't like. It's his opinion so us entitled to it whether you like it or not. Your screename is says it all about you in that just because someone had a differing opinion they are automatically Nokia fanboys. Grow up and stop trying to sound a dictator.

Nokia's marketshare is continuing to dive sharply and that proves that people don't care about long battery life. They care about user experience and ui and Nokia is lacking on both.

If you don't like it then you're better off with Nokia phones. Nokia is slow when it comes to progress and they're slow when it comes to releases. That's why they're losing badly to Android.
i gave up being mugged by phone makers,is there any point in buying a new mobile anymore after all the £500 handset you bought 2 months ago will be improved making you want to get a new one its strange how new technology suddenly appears a few months at a time hmmm wonder why that is????
adi, 20 Aug 2011yea and battery life 6 hours. lol
all this hype about what! device u can't use even for a one... moreAgreed.
And the smart smartphone user, doesn't even take advantage of these huge displays as they have to squeeze as much battery life out of them as possible, by dimming the screen, using black themes, and lowering the light timeouts.
yea and battery life 6 hours. lol
all this hype about what! device u can't use even for a one day without recharging it? it do not make sense.
90% users need no more than about 20 aps and max 4" screen, smoothly working OS and good reception...
if they both ran android, it would be a comparison, but they don't. iphone is a fantastic peice of hardware, but the ios is sooo restrictive in the tweaking and complex stuff you can make your phone do. for the standard consumer, iphone is a good fit, but for crazy tech nerds, i likes me some android openess.
I am a nexus 1 user and nexus prime will be my next phone.
4.5" screen? Faster Processor? I'd start buying up batteries now people. Unless this is going to be considerably thicker than the SGS2, due to battery size, I wouldn't bother.
Mobile phones screens should go no bigger than 4". Any more, and it's tablet territory, and looks stupid.
