since i changed to the 4GS, i just can't take it anymore. My battery life is shockingly poor. 8 hours on standby, no phone calls and a few texts later and my phone is dead.
Same apps restored from my iphone 4.. same usage.. different battery.
I took off the case thinking that could affect it.
I switched off ALL mail push/ fetch and switched it to manual.
I deleted most apps.
I work in a building with good reception, i walk around the place during the day so come in and out of reception so i figured that might be a cause so thought id try switching off the 3G... but..
I CANNOT switch off the 3G function! and the only way to keep the battery going for more than half a day.. is to have it on flight mode for most of it... which is just offing ridiculous.
I bought a cheapass 30 dollar samsung phone after i sold my Iphone4 and used that for a few days until i received the 4gs. It made calls, it never lost reception and the battery lasted 4 days on 1 charge...
Will be returning the 4GS and exploring other phones.. very unfortunate as I've been a lifelong apple fan!
