    Beginning to find my 4 to be boring. What are some new way to bring the wow factor back to the iPhone?

    Supposedly update 5.1 will improve battery performance.

    I'm jailbroken and I don't wanna lose my jailbreak by updating to 5.1. I doubt it'll change it that much anyway. I use my phone a lot so I think I need a hardware update not a software one

    I have my doubts that software upgrade will cure the battery issue with the 4/4S, although my 4S's battery life isn't that bad to begin with. I could go 2 - 3 days without a charge just texting, calling and light browsing/gaming.

    Hopefully the iPhone 5 will have an epic battery life.

    I text a lot and browse and use twitter, tapatalk etc so I charge every day and sometimes twice a day. I'm not saying that my 4S has a bad battery life, I just wish it could last a whole day with heavy usage.

    Hopefully! :apple:

    As said you could jailbreak it to open it up ?

    Learn about doing this first.
    Lots of great advice on existing threads and tutorials on utube

    With moderate heavy use i achieve a full days use on my iPhone 4.

    I was thinking of the 4s or may wait for the iPhone 5.

    i prefer to buy my idevices outright so I'm not locked into 18 or 24 month contracts with having to wait for the next contract upgrade window !

    It's like the size of an external hard drive and will charge you phone like 5-6 full times on one full charge. Yea, it's a pain to carry something like that around, but it's nice to leave it in your car/backpack so you can charge whenever.

    But yes, better battery life would be nice.

    No worries. You will never be accused of ever helping anyone on this forum ever. From noticing your post why do you even get on here? All you do is whine about everyone's post like a child.

    I'm almost tempted to ask you to find a single post on this forum that wasn't a half ass attempt to belittle another member.

    Better battery. I know the iPhone 4S isn't any worse than most smartphones when it comes to this but I should get more than an hour of use if I decide to play a game with 3D graphics. I'm not asking for a ridiculous battery like in the Razr Maxx but Apple needs to do better on the iPhone 5 and bump up to at least a 2000mAh+ battery.

    The new feature I want is for it not to be called iPhone 5 since that makes zero sense to me.

    Always thought it would be the iPhone 6 as well, but it seems like the public has already deemed the name to be iPhone 5.

    -Voice navigation
    -Even more integration with Gmail
    -A revamped keyboard (it is so long overdue)
    -other stuff.

    ----------

    Good observation.

    And @DroidRules... gasp, someone creating a thread about a similar topic in an open forum where you're allowed to basically post anything you want.
    People complaining about repeat threads are, personally, more annoying than the repeat threads.

    At this point, I wouldn't be shocked if it WAS called the 5 since that's what the public expects. On that same token, Apple doesn't like to give the public what they expect/want, so you never know!

    I've thought about getting one those mophie juice packs which you plug in. Probably won't charge it 5-6 times but I can recharge the pack every night and it's a lot smaller than this. Anyone ever used it?

    Yeah, they are pretty good. Effectively double the charge of your phone if you buy the bigger one (the name eludes me right now, the one I am referring to is not the "air" - the air gives you an extra 75% battery.

    It is called the Mophie air plus. And it will charge your battery to 100% and more from 20% I have two so that I never have to charge my phone with the wall charger. This works great for me especially with the way 5.0 messed up the great battery life of the iPhone 4. I brought one in the store for 80 dollars and then I got smart and brought the other one from eBay for 45 dollars and I got the color of my choice which I wasn't able to do in the store they never have any color but black.
