Apple iPhone 4 (CDMA)
My battery life is very poor, not lasting a day, where the Storm typically lasted. Also, can not change battery like the BB.
i've shut wifi, dimmed display, no gps..
what's been your experiences?
With the AT&T iPhone I would turn off 3G when I needed extra juice. I noticed there is a similar option on this phone.
Settings>General>Network. I'm not sure if it will help on the Verizon phone cause I haven't needed to try it.
Also there are some cases available that work like battery back ups.
Some texting, emails, several calls on each....its 4:30PM here (its 5 o'clock somewhere).
You can't change your battery!?!?!?
OK, that was sarcasm, a bit...because, well....that whole thing has been asked-and-answered for years.
Part of me thinks this is troll material simply because to complain/comment about the battery on an iPhone, at this stage...is a little weak.
I too had the Storm2 (among others), and BOTH of my iPhones have had battery life AT LEAST consistent (or better) than most other phones I've had.
Coming from a BB to an iPhone...do you maybe think that you "fiddle" with it more than you did the trusty old BB....
but i average 90 mins on talk time a day plus 30ish emails..
i can't make it thru a day..
down about 25% this morning with 20 mins of talk time, 10 emails and minimum surfing
i've had a few smartphones before, never had a problem lasting a day. the iphone doesnt quite make it thru a day. i bought the igo charger just to carry around.
how do you best calibrate the battery??
need to run it all the way down at least once a month. to keep it calibrated, other wise it thinks that when it sees 25% voltage that its almost dead.
I have been making cellular phone batteries for over twenty years,and the batteries of today are really simple to take care of-just use them until they wear out!
If you are experiencing abnormal battery drain it is either an app that is sucking the life out of it, or it's defective.
I also leave my GPS on but turn off my wi-fi when I am at work. I work ten hour days so I am off the charger for about tweleve hours total.
I live in a strong cell area (4 bars). Today is Sunday, so only 3-4 emails.
The phone has been on for only 4 hours, 47 mins of talk time
Down to 70% battery..
So, is this typical???????
also check screen brightness, and calibrate it.
Many applications like Mail, Facebook and others come by default with push notifications on. This had a pretty large effect on my battery for the first fews days, until I read to turn push off in each app.
My battery easily lasts more than a day now.
Could be worse- I had an Incredible, and got about 3 hours of use before recharge. Changed to the iPhone and it's like the heavens opened and the sun started shining again.
