iPhone Battery iPhone 4S Inefficient Battery Is A Software Problem

The diagnosis held by an iPhone app developer proves that iPhone is suffering from a chronic software problem. This test methodically proves that the much complained about battery problems are software based rather then hardware. Phew! a sigh of relief, well at least it can be cured rather then changing the over all hardware specs.

Two iPhone devices were tested independently. Both having the same hardware, iOS ver. 5.0.1. Their model and release date was similar. They were even bought from the same location and also using the same network (AT&T).

iphone battery1 300x225 iPhone 4s Coming Third While Android Phones Take The Top Two SpotThere has always been a constant niggling about how bad these smart phones are when it comes to their battery life. One should not forget the kind of task these gadgets are capable of. Though these devices are really smart bringing the functionality of a Desktop Computer in to your palms, they do need some serious energy to keep on with it. Once out of battery they are as dumb a machine can be.

We can’t obviously compare these to the first or second generations mobile devices. For example the Nokia phones that lasted days with a single recharge. Mobile back then were communication tools, SMS, calls, radio were all the high end features they offered. With the iPhone, Android devices, things have evolved, your mobile phones are pocket PCs. You can’t expect them to last for 7 days on a single recharge, however one can expect the manufacturers to build more powerful batteries. If not days, they should at least last for a day.

168858 apple ceo tim cook speaks in front of an image of an iphone 4s at appl iPhone 4S Sales Hit 1 Million In One Day, Another Record

The iPhone 4S, being a disappointment for many who were expecting an iPhone 5 with a large screen and what not, the release was marked by the news of the sad demise of Steve Jobs and of course the death of a mindset as well. However the iPhone 4S has broken all records, as usual hitting 1 Million sales in just one day.

The legacy of Steve Jobs will live in the Apple products to come. I am sure we can expect his approved designs for the next one year at least, given the guy [and of course the folks at Apple] though well in advance like any other great technology company. I dislike the new iPhone 4S, but that’s just me [and I know I can never justify why I dislike the device], but it is definitely a great piece of hardware sitting in the same old crappy iPhone 4 design.
