I noticed one of the prime complaint was the battery life issue.
Have the people there ever taken the consideration to root their phone to delete or freeze some of the rogue apps/bloatware that was put on their phones?
Or maybe install a more efficient kernel than the stock one and maybe a new rom too?

Who, the people writing the reviews? That would make the review pretty worthless for the average person. People want to see a review that tells them what to expect out of the box. Personally, if I need to go through the hassle of installing a custom ROM or kernel just to get decent performance, I'm not going to buy the phone. I have better things to do with my time.

Android is known for tweaking and modding. Why get an Android if you don't want to go through the hassle of researching and putting work on your phone.
People greatly overestimate the "hassle" needed to install a custom ROM or a kernel because the effort will be greatly rewarded with improved battery life and overall comfort because the stock rom is too bloated for efficient used.
