iPhone 4s Battery Life

How long does your 4s battery usually last? b/c mine, normally 1 day. or less than a day.

That's typical. Varies depends on your usage. I take mine off the charger at 7am and it will last till 4 or 5pm without charging and I am a heavier user.

Re: iPhone 4s Battery Life

There are some who would suggest turning off location services and such and 3G data but you do not want to cripple the phone.  However, consider going into location services and look at some of the system services such as traffic, location based iAds and such.  They do not add value in my opinion and chew through batteries.  Look at your notifications.  Lots of apps want to send them to you but do you really get any from an app or do you care?  Ie. not every news app needs to deliver the same notfication to you if you have multiple ones installed.  Choose a primary app in a category.

 

Consider Looking at your fetch interval if all your mail uses push.  Does your calendar need to be checked for updates every 15 minutes?  Probably not and it probably does not affect your iPhone use.

 

Enjoy it!

Ps, uups ...another thing that weakens battery I find
Is weak service provider coverage if u have 2 bars or 1 battery runs a mile
But with 4 bars or 5 it's ok Smiley Happy

TThere have also been reports by some users that if you use AT&T's Microcell the battery drain is also increased.  I haven't experienced that myself, but I could be just lucky.

Re: iPhone 4s Battery Life

Lol mine charges on the mains fast off or on
But on the USB pc it's pretty slow

The more you use your phone it will get better
I had issues with mine when I got it restored it about 5 times
Since I had it cos of hardware issues it seems better now touchwood
I personally didn't wanna go to a apple store 2 hr commute just for a 10min
Chat with Genius bar is a no no lol

I'd rather try n sort it myself and I did!

Download Virus Barrier on the AppStore it's
Pretty good it's only £1.99 seems to have fixed
Safari crashes and phone is definitely heaps better :]
