This is my rMini. Why can't the iPhone be like this??
Because the mini simply uses a larger battery that wouldn't really fit in the iPhone?
Put your phone in Airplane mode (feel free to activate WiFi) and you'll notice a decent jump in battery life.
It's amazing how much battery lasts when a device isn't searching for cell towers.
I'd imagine the batteries are fairly similar the difference is the iPad Mini is larger and can fit a physically larger battery inside it, which means longer battery life.
The same reason you can't get 12 hours of battery life (30 days of standby) like you can from the MacBook Air. Bigger battery = more battery power. If Apple develops larger iPhones, you will likely see improved battery life assuming apple doesn't go too far in the "how thin can this be?" direction.
What if my iPhone 5S is already like this...
Because it is a huge battery and has no cellular antenna.
Even with a cellular antenna my 3rd gen iPad used to get ridiculous battery life. It's just due to the massive battery the iPad chassis allows coupled with the power-saving of IGZO.
My 5s already has battery life as good as that! For an iPad mini that isn't that exceptional...
Yeah...unless the OP was gaming heavily then those usage stats aren't great at all. I get ~14 hours of usage with 3-4 days of standby, doing web browsing, Facebook, light gaming, reading, and videos.
It always surprises me how Apple has continued to move in the "smaller is better" direction. They continue to put more and more battery-sucking abilities into the iphone (ie, background apps, background app refresh, geofencing, etc) but never improve the battery life. Would it kill them to, just once, slightly increase the thickness of the iphone to put a bigger battery in there?
To me, something is inherently lost in the iphone experience when you get a new iphone and the internet advises you to instantly turn off a TON of features the iphone advertises as selling featuers to save battery life.
Apple could make their battery last 3 days with heavy usage and the internet would be full of posts from people complaining it doesn't last a week.
Besides, they HAVE been increasing the battery size with each phone.
Yes we can, at least my 5s can:
That's a tough but not impossible goal. Just depends on what you are doing.
Btw guys looks at remaining battery life in the OP.
Or, you know, perhaps move in an even better direction and lead the innovation by getting to newer and better battery technologies (like graphene or something else of that nature).
The same reason I can't fit the 8 people that just got off the bus into my smartcar.
Welcome to my world of android and nexus 5.
Fixed that for you.
It's not just Android, this has happened with every version of iOS.
