69% of expensive smartphone users charge their devices at least twice a day. OnePlus has shared a fresh study

According to a recent OnePlus study cited by Phone Arena, smartphone users in the US are unhappy with their smartphone batteries.

And we are talking about expensive smartphones, as 1,000 people participated in the survey, who over the past year bought a smartphone worth $600 or more.

69% of expensive smartphone users charge their devices at least twice a day.  OnePlus has shared a fresh study

The survey showed that 69% of users charge their devices at least twice a day, and 43% are dissatisfied with the speed of charging.

Before looking at other data, several aspects need to be clarified. First, the fact that users charge their smartphones two or more times a day says little without details. The source does not say that users’ smartphones are completely or almost completely discharged, and therefore they have to charge them at least twice a day. It is quite possible that we are talking simply about situations where people put their smartphone on charge in any possible situation, even if, for example, by lunchtime the smartphone is only 30% dead. This is indirectly confirmed by the fact that 63% of those surveyed said they were worried that the battery in their smartphone would run out and they would not be able to find a way to recharge.

The second caveat is that the source does not specify smartphone models. If you rely on the statistics of the US market, about half of the market there belongs to Apple. Only people who bought a smartphone no more than a year ago and for at least $600 participated in the survey, that is, about half of the respondents, according to statistics, probably own a fairly new iPhone, and they are just famous for their autonomy, which is also necessary to have in mind when evaluating the data. By the way, this just goes well with the fact that almost half of those surveyed are dissatisfied with the speed of charging, since the flagships of Apple (and Samsung, which ranks second in the US) do not have very fast charges.

Returning to the survey, 64% of users prefer to leave their smartphone to charge overnight, and 33% are afraid that overnight or fast charging will have a bad effect on the battery. 93% of users charge their devices at home, 45% do it in the car.

It is also worth noting that more than 75% of respondents said that it is important for them that the smartphone is equipped with a charger. And on this subject, the OnePlus study has some interesting information. It turns out that due to the fact that many manufacturers no longer put a charger in the kit, 193 million chargers were bought in the US last year alone. This made the Mobile Charge category (including cables, power supplies, car chargers, and more) the second largest consumer electronics category in the US, with an industry estimated turnover of around $3.2 billion.

The creators of Nothing Phone 1 want to compete with

The company Nothing, which released a smartphone with a transparent back panel Nothing Phone (1), plans to soon enter the US market and compete with Apple there.

Carl Pei, the co-founder of Chinese mobile phone maker OnePlus, is in talks with US carriers to launch a new smartphone in the US, Pei revealed in an interview with CNBC without naming any carrier. So far, the company has only released its smartphone in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, but not in the US or Canada.

The reason we didn’t launch in the US is because you need more tech support to support all carriers and their unique customizations they need to do on top of Android. We felt we weren’t ready before. We are currently in talks with some carriers in the US about a possible launch of a future product there.

However, a third of sales of its Nothing Ear (1) fully wireless headphones are currently in the US.

This is definitely a market that already has a lot of interest in our products. And if we launch our smartphones there, I’m sure we can achieve significant growth.
