The other way to handle this is to define your own standard.
Power Time: CPU+WIFI+GPS+ SCREEN ( something like that)
Talk time: standard definition.
Standby is the first metric I would toss off the island
It's actually best in these circumstances to define the new standard. But it
Has to have some tie to the old standard.
