    If it makes you feel any better, mine sucks too. I ordered a mophie juice pack reserve. I guess that's one way to make it better without having to worry about making the phone bulkier.

    Want better battery life? Don't use your phone.

    Here's my battery life. I charge it every other night.

    "NORMAL" iPhone 4S Battery Life?

    iPhone 4s battery seems terrible! Almost equivalent to my 3GS and it's terrible battery life. When I got my iPhone yesterday and restored from backup I noticed nothing really changed with minimal usage and standby! Is this normal or should I consider setting it up as a new phone because maybe something is running in the background that's causing it to drop a percentage every few minutes under light usage? Input would be great!

    Damn another one of these threads? Everyones usage is gonna be different. Can you not charge your phone every night? Why is the usage such a big deal?

    12hr standbye or if left over night 20hr. That seems the average with people who use their phone. Apple quoted 200hr standby. It seems a misprint 20hrs is more accurate.

    I am usually at 50% by noon at which point I activate my Mophone Juice Pack Air and charge it to about 90% then my phone last until bedtime at which point it's usually by 30% battery. I haven't had much luck with any other phone in terms of lasting me for days but then again i admit I tend to use it quite often.

    Over 3 hours of use and over 24 in standby is not that bad.

    Normal is such a big area.

    We have 2 in our company and the battery Lasts more than long enough but we do not play games or use it to drive with!
