I don't understand how iPhone users report upto 8 hours of usage whereas I only get about 4 hrs of screen time on my s4. Sure my s4 screen takes up more juice but it also has a much bigger battery to compensate. I keep all the smart features, blue tooth and gps off. Is ios optimization that great? Could the software make such a difference?

Never in my life ive got 8hrs of usage on my iphones lol

4hrs is the most i got on my 4s, that is with brightness at around 40%, 3G, 4 emails accounts, whatsapp/tapatalk/ safari usage.

Some people just use the phone to listen to music, text and make calls :) i guess does are the ones getting that much out of the battery.

My GS4 can go a full work day a single charge.

Same is true of my 4S and iPhone 5.

I'm a heavy user as well. Constant music, messaging, Internet etcetera

some report 6 hrs, others report 8+ hrs of usage. Dunno if that really includes screen time, but still pretty good.

Im talking about iphone 4s and my current iphone 5 :) screen time without wifi i doubt they get that with "real" use.

Now if with music on the background its a different storu :p but who knows maybe its just me.

Most i ever got on my 4s was 4hrs screen time, I doubt anyone is getting 8hrs + screen time on the 5s

On the GS4 i average about 5hrs screen on time.

Also remember usage on the iPhone doesn't necessarily mean the screen is on so don't be deceived.

don't have doubts...your reception sucks compared to others. Where i'm at I get 4 bars and always connected to wifi either at home or work.

Depends on what you're doing with it. Based on my usage patterns, I constantly get ~8 hours of runtime over 1.5 days on my 5. That's a lot of web browsing, lots of social media and messaging, some gaming, and some music streaming. Wi-Fi really conserves battery compared to 4G, though LTE doesn't seem to be as power-depleting as it's made out to be. I think overall the battery is really good if you're not on cellular and don't have brightness up all the time.

Coming off of a VZW i5 to a Samsung S4 w CM rom.. battery life on s4 is extremely better.

I consider myself a semi heavy user. No game, just use the phone as a communication tool.

The iphone would not get through a work day. by 3-4 I was at 20% and to me that is.. put it down and save what is left incase I NEED gps etc.

The S4 will go a complete 24hrs and still have 30-35% left. This is great but sometimes I forget to charge it and find myself in a bind, which is my fault.


Wish the 5s had a longer bat life & tether app Bc I do miss the iphone.

the iPhone's usage time is a bit misleading. for example, talking on the phone with your screen off is included in the usage time.

Are you saying you get 8hrs screen on time? Sorry I'm not a believer.

Auto brightness on. Never use Google now. WiFi, Bluetooth GPS off. And i stay on my phone nearly all day, average out around 5hrs.

5s definately has better battery life compared to my old 4s which had to be charged everyday (age had its say, too).

After 24h from charging, with typical use, 5s's battery is 60%.

No LTE, just 3G.

My 4S was awful after a year, but I average 4-5 hours talk time daily on my 5, plus about 1.5 hours of screen-on time. I keep bluetooth and wifi on all the time.

This is on 3-4 bars CDMA/LTE signal. Less than 3 bars and my battery time goes to crap quickly.

I got about same from S3.

wow, but please tell us, what did you do while keeping the screen on? (beside that 12 minutes call ;) )

On topic two examples: the S4's battery is about 66% bigger than the iphone 5S. What we certainly know is that the display of the iphone is more power efficient (lower resolution, smaller display) which eats up the advantage of the OLED Display while displaying black pixels. You can assume that the iphone's SoC is also more power efficient since there are less cores and the clock is lower.
So you have a smaller battery but also more power efficient parts which leads to a similar performance on both devices (Maybe with a little advantage to the iphone).

BUT, things like cellular data or wifi eat up the same amount of energy as there is no big difference between those chips. So for example an hour of using the LTE chip and antenna uses relatively more energy on the iPhone than on the S4.

So far about the theory; The performance of both devices is very dependent of the usage you are doing. In fact both devices are capable of bringing you through the day in normal condition, so I'd just compare the overall experience since there is not really a difference on the battery side ;)

The S4 has good battery life. It easily gets me through a full day with moderate to heavy use. I'd have to really hammer it to drain the battery before the end of the day.

iPhone battery life is great compared to almost all android phones. The only three that come close or even surpass it in some situations in my experiences are the Droid Maxx, G2, and Note 2 (and 3 I'd suppose). Each of these have batteries at least 2x bigger than the one found in the iPhone.

I regularly get 6.5-7 hours of screen on time on my iPhone 5s. On a GS4, I'd get around 4.5. On an HTC One around 4. I am a normal user - taking some pictures, browsing facebook, have 4 email accounts with push, occasional YouTube / internet browsing, and I send/receive around 200 texts a day. The HTC One would probably still be in my pocket if it got better battery life, but I hate having to charge throughout the day.

Was this under normal circumstances or did you do a whole bunch of wacky things to prove a point? It's odd that no one else has ever testified to these extraordinary results that you post here but if that's what you claim more power to you. I doubt the 5s is as big a jump in efficiency than the 4s and under normal operating circumstances, I never saw anything remotely close to that w/ screen on. That's just my experience.

I just charged the battery to 100% and turn off the auto lock. Did nothing special. I used the phone like I do on a regular bases, but with a little more gaming then normal just to kill the battery faster. It already took to long for it to get to 50%. Without gaming I'm positive I would had got 14hrs or more. Anyone can do it and come out with the same results as long as their reception doesn't suck. They would probably even get more hours then I did. Also The 5s is more efficient the the 4s. I noticed that from going from the iphone 5 to the 5s.

To bad iOS does not give detailed battery stats :) because not even Apple gets the same usage you get lol nor any other review....

I got an iphone 5 recently coming from a 4s, my 4s max usage i got was like 4hrs and with this iphone 5 due to work im not using it that much BUT i have to say that battery seems a lot better, now your usage i have a hard time :p maybe just listening to music but "real" use i doubt it.

I've been consistently getting these usage numbers since upgrading to iOS7 on my 4s.

This includes about 1-2 short phone calls, texting a few people throughout the day, FB messaging one friend, checking twitter, instagram, and email often, streaming music for about 1-2 hours, downloading and listening to 2-3 podcasts and flipping through a few articles on Flipboard. My brightness is se at half btw.

The battery is much better than when I was jailbroken on iOS6 and I'm pretty satisfied with it.

Yes, but his claim is that he's getting that usage with his screen on the whole time.

I'm pretty sure during that hr or two of streaming music, your screen is off correct? .... and when on phone calls, your screen is off? Correct.

This doesn't even include all the background processes your iPhone is running when the screen is off that is included in the usage statistic.

My phone must last me 6+ on usage and my old iphone 4 got 6hrs so it shows me u have crappy reception where you live.

You shouldn't have a hard time believing it if you actually took the time and did the same thing I did. I was on wifi most of the time since I have it at work and home. Just do it and post results.

I can well believe good battery life on the 5S. I've always had good battery life on my iPhones in the past. On my ipod touch 5th gen I get between 6 and 7 hours screen time so I can imagine that the 5S can do 8 hours.

The battery on the S4 is good though. Much better than my previous galaxy note. I bought a spare battery for it but I've only used it once in 2 months.

I get 7-8 hours usage with my 5s, which is a few calls, loads of texts, playing Simpsons tapped out & candy crush, browsing, listening to music, maps/navigation, etc.

I'm still in the early stages where I pick it up and play with it all the time. Under my normal usage it would probably last 2 days easily.

I do manage to get up to 17hrs out of my iphone5 but this is only because I don't really use it much, a bit of twitter, check weather, emails and to make receive the odd call or text. The s4 on the other hand also twitter,emails streaming radio for a couple of hours a day with Bluetooth on the whole time so I get the music through the hands free, web surfing quite a bit and some sat nav if need be, 23hrs with 20/30% battery still left. I did try doing everything on the iPhone but it needed topping up twice to make it through the day, lost 40% in two hours streaming with Bluetooth, so by 8am was down to 60%.

I can't say I'm getting the same battery life as Apollo 13 reports, but I get about 5 hours of screen on time at least. Longer when on WiFi.

People saying "show me proof" are asking for the impossible. There is no way of showing screen on time in iOS.

It means **** for u but a lot of ppl get more then 5hrs and are posting here, but u ignore them...he'll 5hrs usage is what ppl got on their iPhone 4 and 4s. I bet it eats u up inside to see that battery thread with everyone posting getting 7-10 of usage on their phone. Get on a better network instead of that poverty 3G network you're using.

Only thing I need to know is that 3G is a battery drainer compared to wifi and LTE, and that some kid is trying to compare his 3G battery draining network to others LTE and Wifi and say that we are all lying that we get 7-10hrs on our phones. Then doesn't even bother to read Apples own battery specs but keep yapping that he only gets 5hrs so we all should get 5hrs.

If 3G is such a battery drainer i wonder how have you manage in the past with the battery hungry iphone 3g,3gs,4,4s ? But i remember you said the formers gave you up to 6hrs of usage :D

Lol the only thing he needs to knows puff this is guy is probably part of the people that bashed Android phones with LTE and were saying that it only drains battery and its not available in most places.

Get a grip :p
