    1) Thinking of purchasing a Certified Refurbished iPhone 7 (Verizon) 32 GB from Apple. How is the battery life on the iPhone 7 - will it be able to last me through the whole day.

    2) How is anyone's experience with using a Battery case - does it protect as well as add a good amount of battery life to the phone.

    3) Is it advisable to purchase an iPhone 7 now or wait till September when the new iPhone will be released. Would the price drop down to $449 (current iPhone 6 price)

    Thank you.

    1. Approx 5-7 hrs of usage. Won't last a full day.

    2. Isn't really protective but adds 50% battery life.

    3. Probably.

    The battery life of the 7 series is the poorest of all the iPhone 6 derivative designs (6, 6s, 7, 8) for some reason, with the 8 performing best in this regard.

    This is a good tool to get a basic idea of what you can expect from general usage:

    September is a bit more up in the air than usual because of the lower cost 6.1" LCD iPhone - there are a lot of ways they could reconfigure the line (including getting rid of the 7 altogether potentially). If you can find a refurbished model after September it will probably be cheaper. I guess really that depends on how badly you need a new phone ;)
