What do you usually use your phone for and what are the settings?does anyone notice the 3.1.2 update improves battery life?
my friend's iphone 3g and my 3gs has usage about 7 hours. nice improvement from usually 4.5 to 5 hours of usage with previous firmware.
do you have an improvement too?
How was it on 3.1 for the 3G?a little gaming, browsing alot with safari and newsstand rss, beejive IM, jaadu vnc, sms and a little phone call.
3g on when the wifi is off.
push with mobile me on (mail, cal, address book).
location service off.
brightness about 45% with auto brightness on.
sbsettings with toggles, but NO mobile substrate apps installed (backgrounder and such).
im pretty happy with this firmware, and it's currently hitting 6 hours 53 minutes with 9% of battery left. it's so awesome!
iPhone 3G3.0 is about 4 hours 50 minutes.
3.1 is pretty much the same.
3.1.2 is about 6 hours 40 minutes or 7 hours of usage (amazing improvement).
Restoring your phone as a new phone solves battery issues for a lot of people.Something has gone horribly wrong with my battery life, yesterday I charged over night then unplugged it at 6.30 am, listedned to three songs on the walk to the tube station and then put the phone in my pocket and didn't look at it till lunch time when I noticed that the battery had gone down by more then 3 quarters.
Looking at the usage stats it said standby 6 hours and 30 minutes and usage was almost exactly the same. I restarted the phone and put on charge hoping that would be the end of it.
Again this morning unplugged at 6.30 listed to a few songs on the walk to the tube station and now at 9:15 the usage stats say useage 2 hours and 10 minutes, standby 2 hours and 49 minutes.
Anyone have this happen before?
