I bought 3 weeks ago, new iPhone 4S.

During this 3 weeks, the battery life is very bad!

Today I have chargedthe iPhone until it was 100 % and then I disconnect it.


And this is the Usage after 8 Hours without charging:


in use: 3 hours and 14 min.

in standby: 8 hours and 5 min.


Is it normal???

Or should I go to the store that I bought the iPhone and asked them to replace the iPhone??



Thx!!

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1.1

    Can't state what is "normal" without knowing what the usage involved.   Was all internet access done when connected to an available wi-fi network, or was some or all internet access done when connected to the cellular network? If any when connected to the cellular network, what was the cellular reception level at the time and were you connected to 3G or EDGE?

     

    The same for calls and SMS/MMS. What was the cellular reception when placing or receiving calls and overall when not using the iPhone?

     

    The lower the cellular reception level or when the level is low, more battery will be used when not using the phone but even more so when using any cellular functions.

     

    Did any of the usage involve processor intensive activity with a game, etc.?

     

    What is your screen brightness? A brighter setting for the screen will use more battery than a lower setting.

     

    There are many factors that affect battery life.

    You don't say what the battery level is after this usage.

    You didn't answer all questions.

     

    What is your cellular reception during that time, and connected to 3G or EDGE?

     

    Are you connected to an available wi-fi network or the cellular network for internet access? Connected to 3G or EDGE if the cellular network for internet access and what was your cellular reception when accessing the internet via the cellular network?

     

    What is your screen brightness setting?

     

    There are many factors that affect battery life.

    If you are the whole time online with 3G is it pretty normal.

     

    Maybe you charged it wrong: you have to charge ik 24h for the first time...

     

    But yeah: go to it to the store...

    You have to do no such thing - charge the battery or keep the iPhone connected to a power source for 24 hours the first time, but you forgot about having to sleep hanging upside down the first night.
