Americans Report Feeling Concerned About Mobile Device Battery Life According to New Survey
NOVEMBER 10, 2022 - NEW YORK, NY - Global technology brand OnePlus today released the results of a proprietary consumer study conducted by The NPD Group. The findings, based on 1,000 U.S. respondents who purchased a smartphone in the last twelve months, indicate people are frustrated with smartphone charging times and often charging their device multiple times a day. In fact, 43% of respondents reported being at least somewhat frustrated with the time it takes to fully charge their phone, and two-thirds reported charging their phone at least twice a day.
"Many smartphone device manufacturers have removed charging units from their smartphone boxes and engineered a new revenue stream, all from sales of their own charging devices," said Robin Liu, CEO for OnePlus North America. "Rather than investing in R&D to improve charging efficiency and battery life, leading device manufacturers have maintained the status quo while burdening consumers with additional costs."
Survey findings include:
"OnePlus believes in providing smartphone users with fast charging and long-lasting battery performance, straight out of the box," said Robin Liu, CEO for OnePlus North America. "Our OnePlus 10T provides 125W wired charging in North America and is able to charge the device from 1 to 100% in just 20 minutes."
Survey highlights are from a proprietary consumer study conducted for OnePlus by The NPD Group. The survey was fielded between September 13th-20th, 2022 among 1,000 consumers who had purchased a smartphone priced $600+ in the last twelve months.
