Does anybody else think the iPhone has a very little battery life?

Asked by johnny (335points) April 6th, 2009 from iPhone

I have a full battery charge in the morning before I go to work then I use it occasionaly for business purposes, and then I is r to charge it already by like 4 o’clock. Sometimes I even have to charge it three times a day. Is this everybody who has an iPhone or just mine?

I have a first generation iPhone and I use it constantly. I usually put it on the charger at some point in the early evening. Considering how often I’m on the Internet, I think the battery life is impressive.
Is yours 3G by any chance. Using the 3G network really sucks up the battery.

ugh. don’t remind me. i have an Iphone 3g and i cant really go the whole day without it running down. i bought one of those attachable batteries, and it seems to work very well.

It’s possible that you just got a bunk battery. You might consider doing a warranty exchange through AT&T.

I have the 3G iPhone and I charge mine every night. I use it constantly. I would say of all the phones I’ve owned, and from what I’ve heard from other people (I sold cell phones for 3 years) that a day is pretty average for battery life. It sounds like yours is under par.

I’m on my phone all day and I usually don’t run out of battery. Then again, if it’s running low I just charge it while I’m using it. I keep a charger in my room and in my car, besides down at the computer. It charges really fast so it isn’t a problem.
I’m willing to loose some battery power to have a computer in my pocket.

I’ve already had to exchange an iphone for a crappy battery. Check it out, yours might be drained out.

I think this must be your battery. My iPhone is fine through out the day, And I use it quite a bit, and if I don’t use it much or only for music it can lasts 2 days. So I would agree that you should trade it in or atleast have it checked

ya I think I’m gonna have to get it replaced cause I just upgraded my old iPhone to a 3g about 2 weeks ago and it’s already this bad. This sucks

If you’re not using WiFi, 3G or BlueTooth, turn them off and see if your battery life improves. If you are using WiFi, turn off “Ask to Join Networks”.

I charge mine during the night and can get through the next day on one charge. I’ve been turning off WiFi occasionally – the 3G network is pretty fast.

Yes it has a very short batter life. I have the 3G Iphone and I use my apps, to call and safari, it totally kills my batter life. I’m lucky to go a day w/ a full life

It does have sucky battery life, but there are things you can do to help extend it. Check out apple’s support area on their site and search iphone battery.
