    just curious about your thoughts.
    According to apple, you can do more intensive apps/games without more heat. Ofcource is is due the smaller processor/gpu unit or whatever. BUTTTT, how will this impact battery life? Will it be alot better during gaming then other iphone's of the past?

    No one knows, but "a lot better" I doubt. I think it will be equal or a little better in that respect. Games are always going to drain a mobile battery fast (comparatively).

    The biggest reason that the battery is getting drained is heat by the gpu i guess, because it needs to work harder. But now there will be alot less heat...
    Im curious to hear more opinions ^^
