Welcome to the all-new iMore Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
"Usage" describes the time when your iPhone was in "use", it's screen-on-time (but when your phone is playing music it's also screen off).. So "Usage" means when your iPhone was busy and needed power. "Stand-by" is the total time your phone is running since it was brought to 100%. It's the time you didn't use it, but it was "on" including the time of "Usage".So someone explain the "Usage" and "Stand-by" please. Whats good versus whats bad?
exactlyThanks for the response. So to make sure i have this right, the "Stand By" is how long the phone has been on since it was at 100%? So if my battery details are Usage: 4 hrs and Stand by 12 hrs...i would read that as of the 12 hrs my phone has been on, i have "used it" 4 hrs?
