Improved battery life most "wanted" iPhone 5 feature

Improved battery life and a larger screen are the two most requested user features of the upcoming iPhone 5

Improved battery life and a larger screen are the two most requested user features of the upcoming iPhone 5, according to a poll conducted by PC World Australia.

Read our comprehensive iPhone 4 review and check out our guide to the best upcoming smartphones in 2011.

In a survey of almost 1000 people, a high 25.67 per cent of respondents voted for "improved battery life", while "a bigger screen: at least 4 inches" closely followed on 21.48 per cent.

In the poll, we asked users what they wanted to see in the iPhone 5 and provided a list of 10 options including a new design, an NFC (Near Field Communications) chip and a cheaper iPhone 4S model.

While extra battery life and a larger screen topped the list, it seems that most users don't care about multitouch gestures and aren't interested in an iPhone 4S: these two results were the least favoured generating 3.01 per cent and 2.69 per cent of results, respectively.

Apple is expected to unveil its next-generation iPhone on Wednesday morning 5 October (Australian time). The company sent out invitations to the media last week for an event simply titled "Let's talk iPhone".

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
