    Lightbulb What do you do on your iPhone in a day ?

    Hi guys,

    I really wonder what do you do on your iPhone in a regular day. Cause I saw some really good battery usage levels.

    For example; I generally send over 1000 text messages over Whatsapp (I discovered many people use imessage instead of Whatsapp)

    Surf on web through Safari

    Listen music through Spotify for 2-3 hours. (offline & online mix usage)

    Push my mails every hour

    Use Twitter, Facebook and Instragram apps. And my battery drain fast when compared to ones with >7 hours usage.

    So what do you guys do ?

    And most of all I use the phone.

    Major web surfing

    Tapatalk (sometimes)

    Heavy gaming (Arkham Origins, Asphalt 8)

    Music (on board, don't use spotify etc.)

    That's pretty much it. My battery dies pretty quickly, though. Around 6-7 hours.

    My iPhone is my primary device. I only use my PC for gaming.

    A few phone calls, which vary in duration from 10 minutes to an hour or more.
    Texts, both SMS/MMS and iMessage
    Email
    Social networking, via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn
    Camera, for random pictures and video.
    Safari, usually to Google and research random stuff
    YouTube
    Music, loaded to the phone, not streaming.
    Shopping, via the Amazon app and eBay app

    That's about it. Some of this stuff, and all my gaming, has primarily been taken over by my iPad Air when I am at home.

    Default Re: What do you do on your iPhone in a day ?

    Wake up, use my phone in the toilet to catch up on emails and news while ... you know...then wash up.

    While walking to work, continue reading on my news. I use machash, zite, tapatalk, reeder2 and a bit of Safari.

    Over the day, check emails, send messages via whatsapp and iMessage, catch up on news during breaks, sometimes take photos, occasionally use apps like calculator, skitch, maps etc.

    At night, if I go jogging, runkeeper app.

    Fairly basic smartphone stuff, as I am pretty busy at work, and I also have an ipad to offload the heavier stuff. But I still go to bed with my phone at ~20% quite often, and this is without intensive stuff like spotify or gaming. Suspect it might be the 4g draining the juice.

    Default Re: What do you do on your iPhone in a day ?

    Mostly work email, and iMessage with friends. I do some music as well (Rhapsody and Spotify, with occasional Pandora) and I use the United app on a weekly basis. I've begun to stray away from social media, I noticed it began to drain me of my time, so I seldom do any of that now. Although, I do enjoy taking pictures on my trips, so I use Instagram on a normal basis.

    Default Re: What do you do on your iPhone in a day ?

    I'm gonna try and go from the moment I start my day in apps:

    • Alarm
      iMessage
      Hangouts
      Facebook
      Gmail
      Twitterific
      MyFitnessPal
      Pocketcasts
      iMessage
      Camera
      Twitterific
      iMore
      The Verge
      Pocketcasts
      Google Search
      MyFitnessPal
      Safari
      Gmail
      iMessage
      Angry Birds Star Wars II
      Camera
      Facebook
      Twiterific
      MyFitnessPal
      Pocketcasts
      Day One
      iMessage


    Not always in that order but pretty close. You'd think I'd get better battery life than I do.

    30 minutes of calls
    6 Hours of Podcast listening in Pocket Casts (Downloaded in morning over WiFi)
    Check news on Feedly 5-10 times a day for about 2-5 minutes at a time
    Instagram 2-3 times a day for 2 minutes at a time
    Vine 2-3 times a day 1 minute at a time
    Twitter 5-10 times a day for 2 minutes at a time
    YouTube videos 2-3 on LTE per day about 20 minutes total
    Various web browsing total 1 hour a day
    10-20 iMessages per day

    I have no wifi at work so 10 hours of the day is LTE only.

    This nets around 10 hours of usage and I usually plug it in before bed with 30-40 percent remaining.

    There really isn't anything I don't use my phone for in a regular day, depending on the area I'm working in will determine whether or not my battery lasts the day.
