It's all about the efficiency of the SoC, radios, and the display when it comes to battery life and web browsing over a data network.

These iPhones and their insane web browsing battery life... Tiny screens, yes, but also tiny batteries.

At least an iPhone's battery life when idle isn't that of all other iPods.. I remember having to charge my 4th gen iPod Nano everyday because even when turned off the thing sucked away battery power. My iPod Touch can hold a charge for as much as 5 days if it just sits idle.

Mine can hold 2-3 days without charging. I'm very impressed by it, actually. My sister's new iPod can hold less than a day but that's because she uses it too much. haha

Back when I had an iPod Nano all I used it for was the 15-minute wait in the morning for my bus to arrive, the 45-minute bus ride to school, then the 45-minute bus ride home and the 3 minute walk to home. About every day to 1.5 days, it managed to do well, and I have procrastinated at times in charging it and it died on me.

I'm one who cannot live with silence, and it's usually music that keeps me flowing because of that.

Megan, How many hours of screen time do you get with that battery life?

12 hours at least. The 2-3 days I mentioned include idle time. I can hold a full charge for about an hour or so until it begins to discharge slowly.

At the moment it's at 17%, and it's stayed that way for a while. I should charge it now. haha

Probably the reason why is because I don't have many apps running in the bg. I always turn them off when I'm not using them.

What's odd about my iPod touch is that I've noticed the battery slightly recharge if I let it go idle after playing a game on it..

I had that happen before recently! Not sure if it's some odd glitch or something. There were times when the charge goes from 72 to 73% in between a 5-10 min span of checking my phone. So weird. lmao

Okay, time for a tablet comparison. Tab 3 7" or Nexus 7? I have no idea what one I should go with.

It's just recalculating the remaining charge more accurately. It's not actually going back up


I'm still very impressed with the battery life I'm getting out of my iPhone 4. It's about 3 years old and I still get up to 2 days out of it. It's pretty damned slow on iOS 7, but the battery is rockin'. I'll update it eventually, but I don't want to spend the money

Also, people complain about the battery life every time a major update comes out, forgetting that they're using it 5x more than they otherwise would because they're playing with all of the new stuff.

I kind of like how multitasking in Windows Phone works.

7.0 didn't have any such fancy thing.

7.5 has the OS take over tasks, iOS-style.

8.0 can run just fine on the background.

Background tasks aren't too bad on Windows Phone, but what I wish was possible was for things to work more properly.. as such when I tried using an IRC client, every time I backed away from it, it disconnected.

And yet, on the other hand, WhatsApp and the like stay online just fine, even on Windows Phone 7.5.

Strange, isn't it? Perhaps it has to do with the nature of the connection.

I do remember the first versions of then-called Nokia Maps and Angry Birds Star Wars running on the Windows Phone 8 had a problem with chewing up system resources (and hence, battery) if you didn't quit them completely using the Back button. They got fixed, obviously, but it does also show that Windows Phone is capable of Android-like multitasking if need be.

What I wish Windows Phone could improve on though is closing tasks, similar to the fashion in which you close them in iOS and Android.. instead of having to back out of them to the home menu that is.

It's for that exact reason that I don't run too many apps simultaneously on my phone.

Update 3 is coming, which gives you a Close button for apps.

You shouldn't worry about apps running in the background on a Windows Phone or iPhone, though. It's mostly pointless.

That's at least good to hear that we're getting an option to close apps, really.. because what is a smartphone that cannot allow you to close apps? :P

I'm thinking it's a concession to the average smartphone user coming to Windows Phone.

Hmm, so earlier this evening my ISP was having DNS problems, and switching to Google DNS worked.. but to further complications about an hour later my internet went out for nearly an hour after that. Fun early evening there.

I tend to stick with what the ISP provides for DNS unless I absolutely have to. I've suffered only one DNS outage last year, and it's more of a "wrong address" problem. Something about servers and corruption.

I'm wanting to switch providers because Time Warner is becoming pure crap now, but unfortunately we have to deal with them for the rest of our lives because it's the only thing for internet in this town I live in. Not even Satellite internet exists here, which is what I was considered switching to.

Ugh, satellite internet. I really dislike at how low the bandwidth cap is for satellite internet (from what I've heard, it's like 250MB a month), and the bandwidth is crap as well. And whenever it rains your reliability of service becomes limited.

Time Warner isn't all that bad. We've had it before, and it was pretty fast. Well, not as fast as our current provider, but still fast nonetheless. It wasn't that expensive, either. For us, it cost only about thirty dollars a month.
