I was just wondering, how long should the iPhone 4's battery last? I can usually get through a day on mine, and I have done ALL of those battery saving tips, setting time zone, fetch email, half brightness, etc. is that normal?

Wait, what? You're getting your battery to last you an entire day, and you're questioning if it's normal? Hell yes! Consider yourself lucky - most people can't get through half a day without the need to charge. A day's worth of battery is good for any smartphone. I can typically get through an 8 hour shift at work, with heavy use, before needing to charge.

8 hours with heavy use? You are very very very lucky Wilhelm Ryan. If I do heavy use it will last me 4 hours, if I'm lucky.

Well, what I consider heavy use. :3 I use Spotify for all but 3 hours of my shift, plus I check e-mail a lot, text, Facebook, Reddit, plus games I play regularly, like Tiny Tower. Battery is near dead by the time I get out of work, I usually charge it an hour or two before I leave just to be sure I have enough battery to get me home.

It actually depends on your use and how you have configured your phone. As a few features may decrease your iPhone battery life. So turn off location services, wi-fi, bluetooth, other notifications and see if it will increase the battery life.

I agree with you.Especially with Wi-fi On , battery lasts fewer. You also use a lot of battery when you are checking your e-mails from your phone. One Good tip that you can do to waste fewer energy of you battery is to turn auto-lock On.

My iPhone 4 loses charge 1% every 7-8 minutes, even when locked/asleep.

Wow, that's quite nice of your iPhone battery, mine only can last half day! That's why I bought an iPhone external power station, this one really helps me to extend iPhone battery. its battery capacity is 1800mah, just double iPhone battery, therefore I don't need to take the iPhone charge everyday.

It's kind of sad that we now have to carry clunky powerbanks just to last the day on these devices
