iPhone battery life

Battery life is a tough one. I drive a camaro with a 5.7 v8 and there is not a chance that it will ever get the fuel mileage of a Honda civic. It has a big engine that if you use it to it’s full potential will consume A LOT of fuel. The iPhone has a fast cellular modem a built in gps a fast processor brilliant screen and wireless. Lots of potential for making it a highly effective and entertaining device. All that comes at a price. Battery life. All of these components suck battery. The more of them that are on the more battery you will use. Surf the web on a busy or active web site on wifi or cell modem and watch your battey drain fast. This is why the external battery options are a must. Use the device as a phone with occasional data use, listen to music and a day is easily possible. I am a heavy user and I can kill the battery and even the mophie quickly. Some games are brutal. So in the end, it’s up to you as to what kind of battery life you get. One thing I can guarantee you … you will never know what enough is … but you sure will know what not enough is 🙂 Life’s like that.
