    How much of pure hours of screen time do you get when you browse the web using the stock ios browser on 3G while BT/GPS/WIFI/auto sync or any push notification is disabled.

    Assuming mostly text based websites are visited and the phone in question is the iphone 4s with 100% of battery life.

    Apple claims 6 hours. I would say that is pretty accurate.

    As much as I prefer my iPhone 4S over the other smartphones I have, I no longer use it for browsing.

    I find the 4.7" display on my HTC One X a very nice size that makes working on the web a great experience as far as smartphones are concerned. Being highly mobile & needing the web for work, a smartphone with a spacious display is a true pleasure.

    My ideal iPhone, one that I could actually get excited over, would have a display size between 4.5 to 4.8". Oh how I wish Apple would offer two models, just like they do with laptops. If they kept the 3.5" for all those who swear by them, then build a 4.5" for those of us who are heavy browsers, they'd make more money than they realize.

    What does that have to do with answering the OP's question?!?


    I agree with lordofthereef, I would probably get around 6 hours (give or take) depending on the cell signal at the time.
