iPhone battery life


I just upgraded from a basic slider phone to an iPhone 4S and I'm noticing the battery is already draining pretty quickly. Is this normal for the iPhone 4S?

Yup. Smartphones in general won't be able to last as long as basic devices because there's fast processors (sometimes with multiple cores), RAM, a larger, high resolution, and/or high density display, internet capabilities, apps and background processes, etc. Tips for keeping your battery life manageable: 1. Turn off WiFi, data, Bluetooth, etc. if you're not currently using them. 2. Turn down screen brightness. 3. Close any apps in the background by double-clicking your home button, then swiping left/right to scroll. Swipe up to remove them from memory.
