It's prettier than my old iPhone. More streamlined, even. I know — hard to believe, right?
But the battery life is awful. I put it on my nightstand with a full charge, and it's half or more gone 7 hours later. I've dialed down the brightness, turned off location features, turned off push everything, and avoided playing games. Still, the charge dwindles rapidly.
After a few short days, I find myself hesitating to use it, questioning myself — wondering if whatever I wanted to do is important enough to justify the painful battery drain.
This has never been my experience of my iPhone in the past.
Now, with all the new features turned off (I might as well turn off 3G too, since coverage in Austin is spotty at best) I have a new iPhone that... is a little thinner, and has a white back.
I'm considering migrating back to my old iPhone. At least I could use it all day without worrying about running out of juice.
