New iPhone 4G in 2010: What battery life should be minimum?

The battery life of the earlier versions of the iPhone has always been an issue with owners, but with the anticipated launch of Apples new handset just days away certain features of the next iPhone are becoming hot news.

A story by Derrick Johnson is reporting that the new handset will still not have great battery life; even though the handset probably will not have too much demanding technology it will only offer equal performance from other company’s smart phones.

We have spoken in the past about the battery on the iPhone 4G and the fact it is a lot bigger than previous models but will it be enough?

There is some help for owners of the current iPhone in maximizing their battery life. Keeping the device cool is said to improve performance, so try and keep it from places that will generate heat like the glove box of your car.

Updating the devices software or optimizing the phones settings can also add life to the device’s battery. With the expected announcement of the iPhone 4G next week what do you think the minimum battery life should be? Let us know your views.
