<div>Average latest mobile phone functions: 50+</div><div>Average latest mobile phone battery charge with full use: 1.5 days</div><div>Average latest battery 80% capacity lifetime: 1 year</div><div>

</div><div>Are we crazy or what? We sign a contract for a pice of hardware that will be mostly obsolete before the contract expires. At its best the phone becomes a black brick after a 1.5 days of full use. Worse than that, much before the contract expires, the phone’s battery won’t hold for half the time.</div><div>

</div><div>15 years ago we could get a no-contract phone mostly FREE that would last a WEEK without recharge. Sure, they didn’t have apps to watch movies. However, your super nice hyper-phone can’t do anything at all with a dead battery. That is what is going to be after a fraction of time use your old ericsson could do. Is like having a Ferrari with a mule under the hood.</div><div class="separator" style="clear:both;text-align:center;"></div><div>Here I propose 2 things:</div><div>
</div><div>1.- If you have money, please give it to Solid state physicists. Dudes, we need the next generation of batteries. For yesterday. Not a 10% increase in battery, that’s peanuts. The screen guys did their work, keep it up, folks.</div><div>
</div><div>2.-A “Nirvana button”. Dear phone manufactures, include a liquid crystal screen in the back of the touch phones. Once pressed this special buttons makes the phone enter into a 90s mode where it can only make and receive calls and texts. NOTHING ELSE. That would make the battery last like 10 times more. You can make it red if you want. Or 90s pink.</div><div>
