The iPhone 6’s most touted feature is said to be its larger display, which could even come in two different sizes, 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch. But according to a new survey, a larger display isn’t what iPhone users are most looking forward to in the next iPhone.

The feature that is the most desired in the next iPhone is a longer battery life, according to a survey taken by 1500 people who were asked what new features they want to see. Respondents could choose multiple features, and 97 percent of them chose longer battery life.

From WalletHero’s blog:

  4. Faster Processor (43%)
  5. MicroSD (37%)
  6. Lower Price (35%)

The survey further asked respondents who intended on purchasing the iPhone 6 about when they’d make the purchase. Here’s what they said:

  1. No set time (63%)
  2. Buy online on release date (34%)
  3. Wait in line day of release (3%)

And out of the people who said they’d purchase the iPhone 6, 84 percent were already iPhone owners, and 11 percent were Android users.

The comparison of battery life to a larger display is an interesting one. Given a choice, what would you want more in the next iPhone, a larger display or a better battery? Let us know in the comments.
