Google blames Android battery woes on user practices and poorly-designed apps

Eric Schmidt chimed in, “The primary consumer of the battery life on these phones is the transmit/receive circuit. So tuning that and obviously figuring out a way to not use too much of that extends your battery life…And people bring in applications that are not particularly smart about that.”

If you are experiencing poor battery performance, consider putting a homescreen widget to quickly toggle power settings and stop using those services that constantly pull down updates.

Well as an iPhone user, when I had lots of background notifications running and was constantly checking for a Wifi signal I had bad battery life too.

Schmidt’s comments are symptomatic of the problems Android is going to have with this supposedly ‘open’ environment.

If there are apps submitted for use on iPhone which aren’t smart as Schmidt describes, Apple may at some point prevent them from being sold.

Android won’t.

If you can manage that, you’ll fix it.

If you can’t, as most users won’t. Android is screwed
