The Art of iPhone Battery Life

The Art of iPhone Battery Life

Posted by · 13277 views
Guy Kawasaki has posted his iPhone 3G settings that reportedly give him 36 hours of standby time.

Some of my buddies have expressed astonishment that I get approximately thirty-six hours of standby with my iPhone, so I'm sharing my settings. Note: this is my second 3G iPhone--I returned the first one because I was getting only five hours of standby time.

I don't know if you'll get this kind of standby time (or more!), but this is what works for me. Of course, people with lesser phones are having a good chuckle because they get three to five days standby time, but their phones aren't cool. And it's better to have a cool phone that you have to charge everyday than a sucky phone that you can charge once a week.

Ok Ive just managed to get a screen shot of my power usage! (this is the first time my phone has not hard reset is self and reset the counters before the last full charge!) 3G ON Wifi ON BT ON Push On Location OFF 2.0 jail broken The phone gets used mostly for Emails, Calls, Ipod, Pictures, Texting Not much internet use. http://img238.imageshack.us/img238/1919/img0004zp4.jpg So why everyone else is getting poor battery power is beyond me, and also just to add my friends N95 gets less than half of usage at the same settings.

@m4253y,, You are my hero. This entire article as well as the idiot that wrote it are simply Apple apologists. The battery life on the iPhone are almost useless as well as the people that make excuses for it. Include the guy from Sweden as well.

Wake the F..K up! Tell Apple it ISN"T GOOD ENOUGHT, PERIOD!!!

Hey actually I think it's quite smart. I own the 3G since I bought it in my country from the carrier (Sweden). I too don't have the 3G on, while it's in my pocket... It' kind of stupid to have 3G on for no reason so it just drain the batteries. 3G on and I have to recharge every night almost. off and just switch it on when I'm out of wifi enables me to have the phone on for days. there is having everything on just because you can, thus stupid and there's smart and just use it when you want it....
