    Hello. I got my iPhone for about 2 months ago and I have seen that my battery seems to drain fast when i play games on it. It does not metter what game I play but when I play any game, the battery drain 1% every 4minutes (maybe some seconds more) Is that normal? It is like 7 hours of usage time total from 100%

    "normal" is subjective, imo. i think if YOU have noticed a difference then go from there and google search ways to improve/optimize your battery

    on mine it seems like the first 7% - 10% goes fast but slows down after that, weird i know

    good luck and hope you get something figured out

    Doodle jump
    Froggy jump
    Super fly
    Angry birds
    Paper Toss

    I think 7 hours of usage is normal but I want to be 100% sure.

    Angry birds actually tends to eat quite a bit of battery power. That surprised me. 7 hours of usage is maybe on the high side if you use the phone heavily.

    I get a bit of a battery drain when playing games as well. You could try to make sure games don't access your gps or game center which might limit it's usage of your radios to conserve battery when playing.

    One of the main reasons games use so much battery is cuz the screen stays on. And plus I would assume the game uses the ram as well a good bit.

    If you turn off Wifi, 3G, turn down brightness, ect, you will save more battery
