what is the first iphone's battery like?
any hints/tips on how to extend the life of the battery?
i was just on a train today and my ipod battery was going ape sh*t, going up and down and on and off.
just mae me wonder...
Opinions vary but I just use them until they need to be charged, then do so. If I know I'm going to be away from a charger the next day, then I'll charge my current cell completely (BB 8310) and know that it'll go through the entire next day no matter how much I use it.
I dont trust what most companies say. its usually a lot shorter than the time they advertise. You will find out at launch.
Let me just say that if you are coming from a HTC device or any windows mobile device for that matter battery life will NOT be a issue for you. Hope that helps some.
It's a shame that they can't just make it so you can replace the battery more easily
But I guess they love every bit of money they can make...
Well, as I posted previously, Apple is guilty of blantant money grubbing on iPods and iPhones. I'm amazed they haven't tried it with their laptops but no one would buy a laptop without a user-replaceable battery. I'd like to see that happen with the iPhone but it's not and since the Reality Distortion Field has enveloped the general public, we put up with that for some pathetic reason. Show me just ONE other cell phone for sale in the US that does not have a user-replaceable battery.
But OEM batteries in the original size are indistinguishable from the original that came in the box. It's nice to have the extra battery for all those long airline flights (watching movies, reading ebooks, listening to music) interspersed with quick calls between flights and no time to charge up. Or the visit to seven client sites around town, by metro, with a couple dozen phone calls in the process.I'm glad there is no replaceable battery... for one thing all of the extended batteries out there that come with a extended battery door are made so poorly... colors never match properly, has a super cheap feel to it, etc...
All day on the road in DC (by metro, not car, typically) or traveling across the globe to various customer sites, I always carry one extra battery in my briefcase and end up using it 2-3 times every week (more if traveling). Except when calling 911, I don't think you're even in a cell phone "emergency" situation. Cell phones are a nice convenience in my work, but a cell phone with a dead battery is simply a nuisance.dstrauss said:I'd really like to hear from someone who carries a spare battery around in their pocket for "emergencies."
