How Long Does Your iPhone 4 Battery Last?


 How Long Does Your iPhone 4 Battery Last?
topic by King Jackson - 06-17-2011, 06:05 PM - Boxden > BX Tech


I know there are a lot of people with the iPhone 4 and I'm wondering how long does the battery last on HEAVY USAGE?

I'm switching from Sprint to Verizon on the 24th (EVO to iPhone 4).. My EVO battery barely makes it through the a 9-10 hour day (usually about 5-15% left).. Will the iPhone 4 make it through the day > How Long Does Your iPhone 4 Battery Last? - Photo posted in BX Tech | Sign in and leave a comment below!

i have full brightness on... and i have to charge it daily.. anywhere i can i charge it.

with moderate use, u can expect your phone to die before then end of the night. I wake up at 8 and on my phone moderately til 11 pm. it's better then alot of android phones

My iPhone isn't at 50% yet and it's been off the charger since 5am EST. Moderate phone use and heavy MP3 playback, about 3-4 hours today. No web or camera today though. Typically I unplug my charger at that time every day and plug it back in around 11pm EST and I've only had my phone go below 20% once and that was when I went home to Los Angeles and because of the time difference and it was off the charger for almost 24 hours plus I was using it HEAVY.

:wow:

Thanks bro.. I was going to stay w/Sprint & get the EVO 3D but the battery I'm sure will still be an issue. Thanks for the feedback, Verizon just got another customer :dancingcool:

Before this turns into another Android/iPhone holy war I will say that the Evo 3D's battery may be straight, so you might want to wait, especially since the verizon plans are higher than anyone elses. I just don't have the time to babysit my phone and make sure applications are off and whatnot to have a decent battery life, plus I play a lot of music and that further drains the battery on Android devices moreso than an iPhone. Still even if the battery isn't up to par, an extended one will come out and those are pretty good.

For the people in here with Sprint, just wait before you bounce to Verizon cause Sprint is supposed to get the Iphone 4S in before the year is up. Even if you are still planning on leaving Sprint or TMobile at least wait til the new Iphone drops. Why leave and cop the Iphone 4 when another one is finna drop ?

I get more juice on my Atrix then my iphone. Like I said its hard to judge though totally different phones. If u have a lot of cydia !! on your iphone, you better not expect it to last that long. One thing I liked about iphone is you could actually close programs versus android to where u can but need a task k!ller, which usually is more battery then the program.

BUT at least android batteries can be swapped out.

Usually what you can do is either buy a battery upgrade, or you can just buy other battery and switch batteries. I keep an extra battery on me at all times, usually I don't need it though.

I like the option though versus iphone you better have one of them charger bulky a$s cases or bulking a$s external chargers...

Some of yall that have yall !! last 5 days should not even own phones. That means yall don't get any kind of text or nothing. Any real phone user will usually have to charge it every night.

If it is stock iphone no jailbreak it will last a bit longer, because that cydia !! eats up battery life.

Bullllll!!. Having cydia doesn't hurt battery life at all. If you have a !! ton of extra FROM cydia, of course.

I send about 1k in text messages a month, and have used about 1.6-1.9GB of data per month for the last few months..

Yeah I stream Pandora pretty much all day in the Warehouse at work and I have to constantly keep my phone plugged in.. Even when I'm just playing the .mp3's that are on the SD Card it still eats up the battery, fast.

That was the main reason I stopped !!ing with the Evo. I would listen to MP3s all day at work and and the battery would be damn near gone in 4 hours. You won't have that issue with an iPhone.
