Thursday 18 February 2016 | 21:57 CET | News
Most UK smartphone users (70%) want their handsets to integrate seamlessly with other technology, according to a survey by Carphone Warehouse ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC). Specifically, one fifth (21%) want a better experience when it comes to other connected devices in the home; and 22 percent want a more seamless way to charge their device and cut the cord from plug to phone. Battery life remains a problem for consumers, with more than half (53%) stating their phone dies at least once a day and almost two in three (59%) saying it's the most irritating aspect of their device.
