Default Re: iPhone 4S reviews

I switched from android to a 4s and like it a lot, my battery life is pretty terrible though and I don't even use it that much. Wonder if I got a dud or if iphone battery is just equal to my android.

Well you probably will regret switched from android to 4s, iphones and itouchs still has worst battery life on iOS 5. On heavy, medium and light usage, android outperformed iphone.

Like you I dont used phone that much everyday, some day I was on wifi on Samsung Galaxy S II for 1 hour on full charge, the battery dropped to 85% but on my ipod touch it drained down to 40%, drained 1% every min. Without wifi but read and send sms last 12 days. Awesome

You guys know that the iPhone 4S has a battery issue with the OS right? Quick hint, disable Location Services and you'll get way better battery life. My wife uses her iPhone 4 a ton every day and gets a full day use with no problem.

Don't worry nV Andrew, you picked an awesome phone. I can't wait to get mine in another month.

Do you think guys dont know about the battery issue??? The bloody issue still plaqued since iOS 4.2. That why itouch, iphone 4 and iphone 4S fans are so very angry with Apple never fixed the issue for what?... over a year.

Disabled Location Services will not get better battery life. I tried and it wont worked.

Apple's support forums are filling up with posts from angry iPhone 4S owners with devices that can't make it through a day, even with battery-draining features like Bluetooth and location services disabled.

My battery life is much better with iOS5 with my iPhone 4. If people stopped checking their battery every 5 seconds their phone might last longer.

I just asked my wife if she noticed increased battery drainage on her ipad2 since the ios5 update. She said no and to leave her alone, she's watching Law and Order.

This. My iPad lasts usually for a full week with heavy usage and my wife's phone last 24+ hours depending on how many times she checks email and Facebook.

Since Thursday's iOS 5.0.1 update released, people reported it still not fixed the battery issue, actually the battery getting far worse on 5.0.1 than 5.0.

http://www.neowin.net/news/did-the-i...-battery-issue

Nothing will fixed the battery issue, iOS 4.2 had the best battery lasted me 2 weeks so Apple will now need to do completely redesign iOS 6 to improve battery and multi-tasking or else it will lose to Android 4.

Guess itouch 4G will be my final upgrade, really getting pissed off with battery drained fast all the time, really missed my enjoyment with longer battery with iOS 4 but iOS 5 and multi-tasking is no fun!
