We have an interesting article for you to read now, in which Google’s Co-founder Larry page has been talking about the state of battery life on mobile phones – including handsets that run on their Android operating system.

As reported from Phandroid, Page has been speaking at the Google Zietgeist event, along with Eric Schimdt, the company’s CEO.

Page has stated that poorly designed applications are partly the reason to blame for poor battery life on handsets. He added that if a handset couldn’t last a day without charging, then something was ‘seriously wrong’.

Do you agree with his comments about poorly designed apps? Or do you think it has more to do with the operating system? This is problem which has been around for some time now. We are in a period in which new handsets are crammed with the latest multimedia features to entice users – features which ultimately have a lasting effect on battery life.
