    Default Help Me Out (Battery Usage)

    Hey all. Pretty much a lurker here for the most part, but I had a question. Is this battery percentage with this amount of usage normal? I feel like it should be better than this. Help Me Out (Battery Usage)-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1357440808.587982.jpg

    How's your signal during that time?

    Default Help Me Out (Battery Usage)

    Actually, now that I think about it, I was in a building for several hours this evening with a lower cell signal than usual. Didn't even dawn on me until you asked me that.

    I know that plays a huge part in it. My uncle switched from sprint to AT&T because his signal was terrible where he worked with sprint. AT&T was better and his battery life nearly tripled because of it. Both were with a 4s

    Yeah, that must be it. Thanks. Didn't even think about cell reception before you mentioned it.

    Reception does have a lot to do with it - I usually get 18 - 24 hours of standby with 7-8 hour of usage, but when I'm at work the building I'm in gets really bad 3G signal so it drops a lot faster.

    Do you have wifi where you work? If you connect to that it can save some of the lost battery to the poor cell signal.
