Re: fatter phone for better battery

I don't know of any device that will last an entire day "no matter how much you use it."

Re: fatter phone for better battery

I added the new update. The battery is lasting longer. It's obvious they tweaked the OS coding to be more efficient. I also noticed some performance improvement for overall functions. My phones are on BELL Mobility.

[ Edited ]

I got the charger with a spare battery at Future Shop for $40 (I had a $10 coupon - regular price is $50).  I often switch batteries 2 or 3 times a day.  It's not much of  a problem for me now, plus gives a lot of flexibility because I never have to have my phone plugged in.  If I am going out, I just slip the charger with battery in it in my pocket and switch batteries if the one in the phone runs out.  Then I plug the charger in when I get home, or into a USB on my computer if I am at work.  Plus, if I am on a call and my battery is low, I can just plug the built-in USB cable on the charger to my phone, and the spare charged battery charges my phone.  Works like a charm!

 

I delayed getting the charger/battery because of the cost, but it's so well designed I'm glad I coughed up the $40.

 

At least the battery is not built in and inaccesible.  That gives flexibility.  My son's iPhone is always on a charger.  It's like having a wired phone, and who needs that?
