So the Apple iPhone 3G which was released yesterday and every Apple store filled with buyers got couple bad shots already.
First, it was unsatisfied customers who could not get their networks activated easily when the phone was just released.. But i have made a list of tips to improve battery life of Apple iPhone.
And now, the battery has become an issue of concern.
Browsing through twitter i was completely eaten up with everyone posting just about iPhone and its features, app installations etc. And between all that, there were hundreds of updates complaining about the poor battery life of the iPhone 3G version. Had apple not checked about that before releasing the new version.
Here are a few quick updates from people in twitter who just are sad due to the poor battery life, some also assuming as AIM eating up more battery.
I think the only thing I am worried about after one day with iPhone 2.0 is battery life. It seems like it’s going to be an issue.
is enjoying 3g speed and gps but is appalled by the battery drain
So my v1 iPhone with v2 software had a dead battery this morning (75% full last night). Recharging … anyone heard of anything like this.
Pandora for the iPhone is amazing. 2.0 firmware on the old phone tho… Battery life seems worse. Maybe I’m just being paranoid.
hmm something was seriously draining my iPhone battery last night. not sure what..
The new iPhone Aps Store is the world’s greatest time–and iPhone battery–waster ever invented. iPhone Scrabble!

got the new iPhone. pretty cool but sucks down the battery.
iPhone 2 battery does not last very long. Granted I have been using the apps at lot but they are there to be used.
iPhone 3G seems to eat battery. That’ll be the 3G then. Will undertake further testing in due course.
iPhone 3g battery life charts are a little worrying, phew!
@jabancroft not sure I agree. I updated firmware on old iPhone and battery life is less.
After a day with the new iPhone, I can say that I’m glad I bought it. But damn, Mossberg was right — the battery life on this thing is bad.
“iPhone 3G battery down to 20%, after normal usage. I am going to need to carry my charger with me all the time…”
So how is Apple going to deal with this one?
I have seen 1:50 good:bad reviews of the apple battery everywhere.. Lets see if Apple is going to try to fix this issue or just don’t care!
