    Is anyone experiencing poor battery life in weak cellular data areas with the Iphone 7 +?

    Previous I was using the Iphone 6s+ with the same carrier Three and with similar usage at work (poor signal area) I was on around 50% battery when I went home most days, now I’m down to at best 30% and sometimes less than 20%. I am also noticing when I use it at lunchtime for web surfing, Twitter etc the phone has occasionally heated up considerably (more than the Iphone 6s+ did under the same conditions)

    I cannot reproduce this effect at home on either cellular only or Wifi so I’m assuming it’s something to do with the poor cellular signal at work rather than the phone itself

    Everyone does with every phone. It's one of the largest contributors to battery drain.
