    S2s uses less overall power than S4s = fact.

    But the S4s have a bigger battery as well. It balances out. I'm just saying that even on lower generation Android phones they required more battery capacity to run for the same time an iPhone does.

    In an equal world if every single phone had the same battery capacity I would say iOS devices will always run more efficiently. It doesn't even matter whose definition of efficient is correct, an iPhone or iPad would theoretically run longer if it had the same battery capacities as any other phone or tablet.

    Lets sidestep a little and take an example, if you were a salesman and you had nothing to depend on except just the phone and its battery, and had no charging devices around.

    You use a number of apps to look at a few documents, to edit them. Plus you make a few phone calls, make a few Instant messages, look at a few videos shown by clients, search the web for news or for information.

    At the end of the day, you just happen to need to make one last call home to your wife but guess what, one phone does and the other doesn't, because the other phone died on him. Died!

    Guess which phone the person is going to say is better, the one that didn't die! It doesn't matter what super duper superhero stuff the other phone does it's never going to be the best FOR HIM.

    No matter what anyone says is the best wouldn't ever stand up to that experience. It never could.

    Same case for you, when you mentioned how people complained about their phone dying at the rink. Same exact case.
    Umm fact from where? The GS2 LTE did not use less power than an GS3 and certainly not less than a 4. Link your source. That would be amazing to see.

    Most of the Components in the S2 are inferior to its upgrades in power management and power usage.

    The only part that may use less is the screen due to it being only WVGA resolution, but there was a 720p LTE variant which certainly didn't outlast the S3 or 4

    The S3's battery is only 250 may bigger than the Skyrocket. The S4 is even bigger but it gets better battery life than the S3 (noticeably more) with the higher resolution screen and more sensors in the device.

    The newer devices are all around more power efficient than the old devices. It isn't just about battery size.

    Wifi 4g on all the time I think my background refresh is off except weather. Apps auto update. Auto screen brightness. Yesterday was a lot of listening to music and a lot of phone calls during the day and then an hour or so of tapatalk at night. I think the music is what helped the usage time. I usually get about 6:30 hours of usage with normal use

    Try this:

    1. Turn vol to vibrate
    2. Insert device into pocket
    3. Go on about your day enjoying life and the heck with worrying about letting a little thing ruin your day

    They are smart phones, capable of doing so much and all crammed in a little package. 5-6 hrs isn't all that bad considering what we do with them and what we expect them to do for us. Sure you can turn everything off and use it manually for notifications .... But then why have a smartphone if your not or scared to use it right? Have a great day!

    50% battery life update.
    Battery life of iphone 5s-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1394818585.263269.jpg

    This after letting the battery completely drain and charge. The standby is so high. Because for 7 hours of that I was sleeping. Email, browsing, a few YouTube videos, Facebook, lots of texting and a few phone calls.

    I usually charge overnight so I never know what my battery is truly capable of. I'm pretty satisfied.

    Playing games requires screen time, and uses CPU, GPU, Memory, and other phone resources. So, when you play games, battery will be consumed more than activities like text or checking email. There is no way to avoid greater battery consumption levels when playing games, and everyone should just accept that by using the phone - battery will be consumed.
