Battery is the fine point of any smartphone at the moment, with even the best devices sometimes getting downplayed because of the battery life; the Galaxy S6 for example being a an excellent device that is let down by sub-par battery performance.

However, Google has noticed this and is reportedly working heavily on a project to substantially improve battery life in their X labs department.

The Wall Street Journal reports that 4 engineers, including a former Apple expert, comprises the team working on increasing the battery life technology to improve user experience.

Definitely a topic that if nailed could see some substantial gains.
