When we first saw the iPhone 4S it didnt enter out mind about the battery life, instead our expectations were with the design, and after the shock of no external change we then looked inwards.
The internals are impressive, maybe not for Android owners, but this is a step up for Apple iPhone 4 / 3GS owners, although that line of thought changed once we had a hands-on for over a week.
Apple has failed when it comes to the iPhone 4S battery life you may have seen our earlier post that showed the battery was draining fast. Today you can go directly to this page for a detailed look at the AT&T version of iPhone 4S, and how the battery lasts, which only confirms the earlier results. The problem now is how users feel after having a few days with the new iPhone, and that is drained.
Leaving your iPhone 4S on over night sees the battery get low faster than any device before, making some new iPhone buyers wishing they went android. Apple fans are also disappointed; to the point they wished they held out for the iPhone 5 release date next year, which could even come at WWDC 2012.
Weve tested the new device, and turning off many features including location services, notifications, and iCloud helps the battery last longer, but why have these features if they drain the battery extremely fast.
Well keep you informed, but for now will wait for the next iOS 5 update in hope of a fix. One thing is for sure, we hope the iPhone 5 launches with a better battery life.
Apple iPhone 4S Price Plans for M1 Announced
Following up with the contract-free prices for the Apple iPhone 4S in Singapore, M1 also announced the prices of the iPhone 4S with a 2-year contract on its website. The Singapore telco will be hosting a midnight launch event at its flagship M1 store at Paragon. If you are not in that much of a rush to lay your hands on the iPhone 4S at the stroke of midnight, M1 shops and its exclusive distributors will be open for business at 7am on the same day.
The accompanying price plans are basically the same from last year’s iPhone 4S launch, though the data bundle has been reflected to support download speeds of 14.4Mbps according to the iPhone 4S and its new HSDPA speeds. Do note that the download speeds are dependent on the coverage strength of the area you’re in, and is applicable only to new sign-ups and recontracts.
Prices for the iPhone 4S with a 2-year contract will vary according to the price plan signed. For those who are looking at the 16GB version, prices will start from S$0 for the high-tier plans at $98/month and S$198/month, with a price of S$505 and S$235 tagged to the new iPhone with a S$36/month or S$56/month plan respectively.
Both SingTel and StarHub have not revealed their prices for the iPhone 4S at this point in time, though it is unlikely that there will be a huge difference in pricing from both telcos.
