Dr. Drang:

The most surprising thing to me was that battery capacity actually went down after the original iPhone and didn’t become substantially greater than that initial capacity until the 5s. The huge increase in processing capability over the past 6 years has come with only a 15% increase in battery capacity.

If you consider that iPhone battery performance has gotten better over that same time while the overall speed has improved significantly (and screen resolution), well it is hard not to be impressed. I’d love to see the same analysis done for an Android phone.
