Improved battery life most "wanted" iPhone 5 feature

Improved battery life and a larger screen are the two most requested user features of the upcoming iPhone 5

Improved battery life and a larger screen are the two most requested user features of the upcoming iPhone 5, according to a poll conducted by PC World Australia.

Read our comprehensive iPhone 4 review and check out our guide to the best upcoming smartphones in 2011.

In a survey of almost 1000 people, a high 25.67 per cent of respondents voted for "improved battery life", while "a bigger screen: at least 4 inches" closely followed on 21.48 per cent.

In the poll, we asked users what they wanted to see in the iPhone 5 and provided a list of 10 options including a new design, an NFC (Near Field Communications) chip and a cheaper iPhone 4S model.

While extra battery life and a larger screen topped the list, it seems that most users don't care about multitouch gestures and aren't interested in an iPhone 4S: these two results were the least favoured generating 3.01 per cent and 2.69 per cent of results, respectively.

Apple is expected to unveil its next-generation iPhone on Wednesday morning 5 October (Australian time). The company sent out invitations to the media last week for an event simply titled "Let's talk iPhone".

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
