    how long are the calls?

    how many texts are you putting out??

    are you listening to music???

    your lack of info blows and as a result, nobody will be able to help you!

    How long are the calls, if they are like an hour long each then probably not.

    I use Whatsapp, IM+, couple of texts, 1.5 hours of music + browsing and 10-20 minutes calls a day. I have around 60% remaining before I put it on charge again.

    I do keep my Wifi off when I'm not using it (Whatsapp and IM+ through 3G), so that helps.

    If the call is 5 hours, it probably won't last all day.

    Mine lasts all day with some calls, games, texting and browsing mixed in. If yours doesn't, either exchange it for one with a healthy battery or delete some of that porn you got on there. Porn is to phones what casinos are to time. You look at a picture and then back up and it's 3 hours later, your pants are down and you're in front of the dinner table with your whole family there staring at you in horror

    i noticed facebook can make my usage and standy by times match...whether it's using battery and not just a glitch...idk. but from my short experience the battery has drained faster when i noticed this.



    also when i put my phone in my locker i could drop 60% in 8 hours of work...i put it on airplane and will hardly lose anything

    Let me also join the list of people who have no problem with it lasting a full day.

    My typical day is 5-6 hours of web browsing, texting, streaming videos, taking a few pictures, and calls, 12-13 hours of standby and it's rarely under 10% when I plug it in at night.

    The only exception is if I'm actively using the GPS or playing an intensive game.


    This wasn't the case before I upgraded to 5.1 so, if you haven't done so already, update and see if that makes a difference for you.

    Depends on how long the calls are and how many messages you sent.

    All depends on the quantity of calls. Social software and the amount of times it polls the server can make a huge difference.

    I'm in the midst of transitioning from a galaxy s2 to an iphone 4. After having used a few android phones over the years, the superior iphone battery life is one of the biggest differences I've noticed so far. Granted, I haven't used it much for voice calls yet, but been playing some music and using data on and off (browsing, fb, etc) and I am AMAZED at how long one charge is lasting me. Even on standby, I don't think my galaxy s2 ever went over 24 hours on one charge. The iphone is at 85% after 22 hours of being on. Again, it's been on standby for much of this time, but still - none of my old android phones had anywhere NEAR this kind of life.

    If you are having poor battery life , do the following .

    1) lower your brightness and set automatic brightness
    2) enable restrictions and disable ping
    3) disable fetch on email.
    4) disable a lot of notifications for unnecessary Apps
    5) disable wifi when not using it
    6) be sure to close apps when not using them (double click on home button)

    And I think that's all.

    Ya, that's a big one. But I don't think that's controllable.
