I've been using a combination of fairly simple Nokia smartphones and a separate media player for years. I love that my phone battery lasts ages and the phone is actually desinged to call/text people.

I tried using my phone as a media device. There are few advantages like pausing music while receiving a call. On the other hand with bluetooth headphones and music playing the battery didn't last through a day at work.

I suppose the phone was poorly optimized for such use. I can have music playing the whole day, with wifi and bluetooth on and in constant use, and still last 18 hours straight.

So yeah, poorly optimized phones won't last long, well optimized ones will last just as long as any other media player devices.

I'm really interested in a phone that could act as a media player and that lasts entire day on single charge with 6-8 hours of pumping music through bluetooth headphones. Suggestions?
