1hr:24min screen time. 15hr:16 min run time. 50% battery. Brightness set as low as possible. Bluetooth all day, sync all day. 3G only.
I've used mine for a few mins at a time doing things with diff apps or just texting and whatever without it plugged in for say several hours and I swear the sucker never goes under 90%.... plug in and its charged in around 10mins. I'm very happy so far with battery life for what usage I do. I really need to have it out and about with heavy usage and data usage before I can get a good read on it.
But I guess my question is 4G vs 3G... I have great 4G coverage same with 3G but does having it in 4G use up more and just how much more power than 3G? I keep it on wifi when I'm at home or around a connection I have saved or open connection..sometimes I leave it looking for a connection and forget but it doesn't do much. The 4G question has me wondering if although the speeds are a major difference does it really matter with the small functions I'm doing such as pulling a weather app up, connection to steamapp and other things that use data vs 3G.
The simple answer is... Wi-Fi consumes the least amount of battery between the 3. Followed by 3g, and 4g is the biggest hog.Originally Posted by sava700
4g is a separate radio, and while it runs, the 3g radio is also active I believe. And depending on your reception, your phone will chew up your battery. One of the inherent flaws in this generation of 4g devices.
Also as pointed out several tines here already... your screen is everything on these phones. Its your interface, and your screen. It uses lots of battery.......
