Mobile recycling customers may prioritise battery in new device

A good battery may be one of the most important factors in a mobile design

Owning a handset with a battery that is drained after only a little use can be incredibly frustrating, which consumers could be wise to bear in mind when recycling a mobile phone.

Adam, writing the Nokia Conversations blog, asks readers for their opinions on what is the biggest user of their device's power.

"Do you spend all day texting, browsing the internet, listening to the favourite band or is it something else – maybe even talking?" he questions.

The poll comes just days after the publication detailed a new app, entitled Nokia Battery Monitor, which allows people to track where their charge is being consumed.

Those who recycle a mobile may like to think about the battery efficiency of any potential new handset prior to purchasing it.

One option may be the Nokia C7, which was recently the subject of a review by Flora Graham, writing for CNET UK, who said its battery life defies stamina.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "If you just can’t seem to pull yourself away from using your phone, your battery will be taking a serious hit. You could upgrade to a handset with a longer battery life. Why not trade-in your old phone for cash?"
