    that's the point of my experiment. im using my phone as normal cp. w/ call and text. w/o getting the phone off. the only thing i didnt do is having an 3g and wifi. for the result of more accurate standby features. unlike ace he need to turn airplain mode at night. when u turn it on, its like turning off ur phone already.

    My point was that we have to DRAG these details out of these guys..........   They lead you to believe they have managed to find some sort of miracle fix and withold the details........

    Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!   Here we begin to see the truth starting to trickle out from Ace.......    Airplane Mode for the night, which disables 95% of it's functionality.   Unfortunately, the vast majority of users need (or want) a working phone during the night.

     

    I just love when these people post amazing battery life stats, only to release the true details only when pressed and challenged.  

     

    Still waiting for the screen capture, by the way Ace..............

    My phone

    does go into Airplane mode every evening because it saves the battery

    and eliminates me getting calls I neither want nor need.

    That is a prefectly valid use for the phone.  If you don't want calls, then you achieve your goal, and save battery power in the bargain.  Now it doesn't matter if mine is using power for the radios at night because it is plugged into the charger at that time.  Only time it goes to aiplane mode is when I am in a facility that requires 'turn your cell phones off'.  I figure if it good enough for the airlines, it is good enough for the hospital, and I can still read, or play solitaire.

    I have had the same problem but I seem to be getting somewhere to fixing it!!! My battery was going down at 20% an an hour now its 10% with constant use and 5 in standby !!! So improvement all round First I did a restore then I drained the battery i started to charge it and when it came on I turned the phone off completely and let it charge to 100% I then left it for a couple of hours on charge at 100. I saw no improvement after 1st drain so I repeated the drain battery and charge steps again with the phone turned off when charging and have seen a very big improvement. I am going to do it again tonight and hopefully problem solved!!!! The next issue is iMessage as that's playing up and wifi drop out Good luck

    Yes, the truth is trickling.

     

    I do turn Airplane mode ON at night. Also, the phone is in my briefcase, outside the bedroom, so I won't hear it anyway. I try to sleep at night and avoid interruptions.

     

    As for my other usage, I'm doing whatever I want to with the iPhone 4S.

     

    You won't believe these stats or tell me how to get you your desired screen shot, but, to wit:

     

    Usage:     2 hours, 44 minutes

    Standby:  5 days, 22 hours

     

    Battery Percentage Remaining: 46%

    AngelOfFate,

       Have you recently downloaded new apps to your phone. When I first got mine It took a few full drains/charges to see respectable battery life(also a reset or two). Then a couple weeks ago I added several new apps and started to see battery life deplete rapidly. I found a fix by Googling "iPhone 4S battery issues". This user talked about "Reset All Settings" from bottom of General Settings screen and then deleting and reinstalling all apps. Hiniting that maybe an app was not closing or hanging on to not let stand by mode execute. Anyway, did these things and it apparently has helped. Waiting to see if fix holds. Hope this helps !

    Hey Folks,

         Been followind this feed for a while, seeing lots of standy-by and usage  stats but not many "Call Time" stats. This is a phone after all. Just curious to see what y'alls call time usage is looking like. Don't be shy! thanks>>

    Those stats are fine, until you see almost 50% battery remaining.  With almost 3 hours of usage, and 6 days on standby, and almost half your battery left, one of two or three things must be happening.  Your phone has an exceptional battery, or you're using some sort of auxilary battery.  I don't see either one of these as interesting or worth more comment.  Actually, I"m not sure why there has been so much comment on this, it should just come and go, like other people's usage data.  Who cares how this is happening, it's more than Apple promises, Apple only promises 200 hours (8 days) on standby.  If Mr. Ace is a troll, who cares?  If Mr. Ace is in earnest, how does this remarkable usage stat affect you? 

     

    It doesn't affect me, that's for sure.  My phone is working fine, up to my needs and expectations.  If it weren't (and it wasn't a couple of weeks ago) this still has no relevance to me.

    I don't know why his stats are so hard to believe. I have almost 3 hours of use right now and am at 55%. If I stopped usage right now and leave on standby, I might be able to get a few days and maybe go down to 45%. My battery really drains slowly on standby.

    It's of no relevance to you, because you have some clue of what's reasonable and what's possible.   Newbies in here though can be misled by clowns like Ace.   See the next post after yours for example!   Now another one is claiming 8 days is realistic!  

     

    Makes me wonder if this forum should be moderated to keep the trolls at bay.......

    First I was a lying troll, and now I'm a clown. I guess things are improving for me around

    here.

     

    Who I am is an iPhone 4S user who ran into the battery problems discussed here, found

    and used some of the solutions provided here, and now have an iPhone that is getting

    better battery performance. That appeared to me to be the point of this forum.

     

    What I am doing is managing my phone to determine how well the battery can last if I do

    that. I'm not recommending that anyone do what I am doing. I'm just doing it to see how

    well it can work in terms of battery life.

     

    I'm sorry that that offends you to the point of name-calling. You are free to use your phone

    anyway you like.

     

    All I ask is the same freedom.

    You are in here misleading others, who may not know any better.   Call it whatever you wish....   Troll, clown, liar, they all fit.   Newbies need to beware of those like you, so they don't set unrealistic expectations for themselves.   In 800+ pages, you're the only one who claims 8 days battery life.   Gee, I wonder why?   :-/

    I certainly don't mean to mislead anyone. I'm just reporting the usage I'm getting.

     

    I also wonder why it is that all the solutions spoken of here are available to

    everyone here and yet nobody other than I has utilized them. Can it be that in

    an "Apple Support Community" that all this information is freely available and

    absolutely zero iPhone 4s users other than I have tried to use them?

     

    I thought the purpose of this forum was to improve battery life in the iPhone 4s,

    not just be a place to complain about it.

     

    Feel free to use name-calling. I'm just here to get better iPhone 4s battery

    performance.

    Can someone please tell him how to upload his screenshots to the thread?

  • 12,343. Re: iPhone 4s Battery Life?
    RogerSC Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Never done it, but this should work (from other forum replies I've found).  If there's a better/faster way, please add it:

     

    1. Take the screenshot on your phone by pressing the "Home" button and "Wakeup/power" button (the silver button at the top) at the same time.  This takes the screenshot and puts it in your camera roll.  You'll hear the screenshot being made, since it makes the same click as taking a picture.

     

    2. Upload the screenshot from your camera roll to a web site so that you can use the URL in your forum article.

     

    3. Then use this in your forum reply where you want to show the screenshot:

     

    <img src="xxx">

     

    where xxx is the URL for the screenshot.  You do need the quotes.

     

    This should put your screenshot in your forum reply.

    When you reply to the thread, there is a camera icon in the editor... which supplies a GUI so you don't have to fiddle with markup to add an image. It's just I would have expected that if you accessed the editor through a browser on the phone that it would access the camera roll to make it simpler...
