All phones need a check engine light

A nice takeaway from Apple's batterygate via Unbox Therapy.

Who is this guy, and why do I care what he has to say?

Similar things have been said in TR comments. Manufacturers simply need to provide more information to the user about the state of the phone and its hardware.

I'm hoping google will get on the bandwagon and bake the feature into a future release of Android before battery age becomes a problem with my HTC 10. I'd rather deal with slowdowns than have my phone power off randomly in the middle of a call (which ironically my mother's iphone did the last time we talked).
