Call me crazy, but...

by Rusty Shackleford    Aug 11, 2013, 9:02 AM

...isn't it time manufacturers started focusing on less glitzy features in exchange for features that matter in the real world?

For example, phones are destined for a harsh life of abuse yet they are notoriously fragile with screens getting cracked from minor drops and death from minor exposure to water. Another common complaint is that the batteries just don't last enough hours. Also one or the other speaker (earpiece or speakerphone) tend to fail at some point. Laptops are built to higher standards and they are likely to spend their lives on a desk in a climate/humidity controlled building!

It seems to me that a bigger focus needs to be placed on developing phones that can handle the real world instead of attempting to make a phone so thin it has only one side or contains the latest advancement useful for some trendy but otherwise worthless app like Twitter or Instagram.
