We have had our Apple iPhone 4S smartphone for 3 days now, and really impressed with the features, but then all the good goes straight out of the window when it comes to battery life, video & mirroring over-heating.
We will be reporting our own hands-on experience with the new smartphone for a few weeks, but today please let us explain the issues we have with the battery life, and over heating issues when watching videos and playing games using air mirroring.
The battery life on the iPhone 4S is worse than the iPhone 4, within 2 hours of full charge we are already at 50%. Now if you take into account that the iPhone 4S will give you around 10 hours battery life on an estimate, that should mean that the smartphone loses 20% every two hours, but we are losing in 2 hours 50%, which is not right is it?
You will probably comment saying that are we using apps in the background, or are we watching videos etc, is WiFi on constantly, well the answer to this is no. We are simply texting, calling, receiving calls and using Siri now and then. Is this the case that Mr. Siri in the UK is killing the battery because he talks too much?
We decided to give Real Racing 2 a go via the iPhone 4S using AirPlay Mirroring, we turned this on and then was playing this game via Apple TV using the iPhone 4S as the controller, got to admit this was a great game and very easy to control. Could play it for hours but here comes the problem, play for more than 30 minutes and your iPhone 4S becomes a hand warmer and a blooming hot one at that.
If we were cold we would turn on the central heating, but we believe that Mr. Siri our personal voice assistant thinks we are cold and turns the heater up on the iPhone 4S, ok that is a load of rubbish but strange how it heats up so fast, surely the double speed processors are working overtime.
Please do let us know if you are experiencing poor battery life or over heating problems, all the information you give us helps us understand you and your device a little more. You know where the commenting area is, head on down and have you’re saying right now. Thanks
