    Hello,

    call me crazy but I bought a pack of bumpers and I'm currently using the clear one and battery has dramatically increased. I do say this compared to what I used to get on iOS5.01 on my 4s.

    fairly heavy web browsing and media.

    If the signal is weak or weaker with your hand on the antenna then it will use more battery life.

    Your link isn't working so I can't see what you are showing.

    Come to think of it I just put my bumper on a few days ago and have also noticed better battery life.

    It makes sense since the iPhone isn't constantly having to switch antennae to achieve or maintain the best possible reception.

    Why do you include a Geolocation in all your posts?

    Any who, I wouldn't say I notice improved battery life, but I do notice that I almost always have full service when I have a case on my iPhone compared to not having a case.

    My iPhone constantly switches from 2G to 3G while at home (poor signal) and I still mange to get a great battery life. I'm using mine naked ATM.
