Poll: Do you prefer thinner phones or longer battery life?

Evo-4g-lte-frontHTC's vice president of product strategy, Bjorn Kilburn, recently stated that, according to a research survey the company conducted last year, customers actually prefer thinner devices to longer battery life. Supposedly, this is one of the reasons why initial rumors that the HTC EVO 4G LTE's battery would be bigger turned out to be false.

Granted, the EVO 4G LTE still comes with a battery that's 200mAh larger than the rest of the HTC One lineup, but many have expressed disappointment that its not even bigger than that. However, this doesn't necessarily mean that battery life will be bad: both the integrated LTE and the dual-core Snapdragon processor are said to be much more battery efficient than the separate WiMAX radios and older processors of previous EVOs. But still, many people remain unsatisfied.

So in the wake of HTC's own survey results, we thought we'd try one of our own. Be sure to vote below, and then let us know why you voted the way you did in the comments.
