    Why does the iPhone get better battery life than my DROID RAZR? Is it the os? Smaller screen? Apples CPU? I could average about 15 hours with 5 hours on screen when I had the iPhone. I now have a RAZR and average about 10 hours with only 2.5 screen on time. I use the phones the same way and I know the iPhone has a smaller battery but not sure what's helping with the extra life. I would need an extended/maxx battery to reach those numbers or better and that battery is 2.5 times the size of the iPhone (1400mah I believe)

    I couldn't say for sure, but I think a few things at least would have to include:
    -screen size
    -actual OS, more specifically the way it handles multi tasking
    -for that specific example 4g, or lack of


    Not sure about any official / actual reasons, but those would be my guesses :)

    Screen size plus LTE are probably the biggest reasons why, any widgets you have running also contribute to a lower battery life.

    a bunch also has to do with the fact that the OS is build for the specific hardware on iOS which is much different then android. For all intensive purposes all android phones run a Frankenstein OS. They all run the same core android OS then each manufacturer and carrier adds their own drivers, skins, and any proprietary software on top causing faster battery drain.

    Ya I just wasn't sure exactly what all the reasons causes were. And I have 1 widget running and not in a 4g area. I loved the battery life on that phone.
