What troubles you the most when using portable devices? Market research indicates that battery cycle time, i.e., the length of time between charges, is where portable-device users most want to see an improvement. But, it seems, their pain cannot be eased easily because some of the key design factors involved in the creation of portable devices such as a larger screen size, a higher screen resolution, and a more powerful mobile processor only drain the battery faster and make the pain worse.
The Consumer Electronics segment will continue to grow in 2014 with applications such as Fitness monitors, smart watches, home automation, and Ultra HD televisions driving much of the excitement in the industry.
