    Try searching the forum for threads on battery life... There are too many of them now as it is.
    Which phone & what iOS your using helps also.

    Actually that's not too bad. 28% with 4 hrs use and over 7 on standby. Sounds pretty normal to me.
    On a good day I'll average 6hrs use.
    iOS 5.0.1 iPhone 4s.
    I really wouldn't be too concerned.

    They did..... Now their called dumb phones lol my old Nokia 3200 series worked most of the week on a single charge. Those were the days lol


    Sent from my 32GB iPhone 4s on iOS 5.1!
    Only thing iPhone is missing is an expandable memory port! Come on Apple give us a microSD port already!

    I discovered turning of wifi when I'm not using it helps. I went from losing three quarter of my battery life in a day with only minutes of usage to four hours of usage and almost two days of standby With it turned off.

    Thanks guys. I never think to turn off wifi on a long day out when I'm concerned about my phone staying charged. Helpful advise.
