    Default Restore? Weak Battery After Dropping iPhone

    I dropped my phone from the nightstand onto the padded carpet floor yesterday and now, I am losing about 10% better life per how - when it use to be less than 5%.

    The phone is in a case, did not crack the screen or reset the phone. It just all of the sudden became VERY slow and some apps do not respond. I have restarted the phone.

    Should I restore from a backup or reinstall OS 3.1.2?

    Also, is it common for the phone to do this after dropping for such a short distance?

    It is strange in fact, you could try restoring it, but I doubt it would do anything. It seems some internal part got damaged in the fall. Which in fact is strange too, because I have seen iPhone drop from larger distances onto cement and they continue to function well, even screen doesn't crack as easily.

    how long have you had the phone?

    the drop could have been a coincidence around the same time it hit it's end of life
