iPhone 6 battery pack caught on camera
0. phoneArena 17 Jul 2014, 20:26 posted on
One of the bigger concerns about the upcoming iPhone 6 has been with the potential battery life. It is essentially a done deal that the iPhone 6 will feature a 4.7-inch display which means more battery drain, because screen-on time is still the number one issue when it comes to battery life. Given how thin the iPhone 6 is expected to be, there was worry that the battery wouldn't be all that big...

Good luck on that . I'm guessing another wall hugging commercial will be up and running after the iPhone 6 release .

I'm sure Samsung's ad agency can be more clever.
In order to escape the tyranny of the recycling bins and airport bathrooms, the next commercial can show iPhone owners with giant battery phone cases and how heavy and bulky the iPhone becomes with one of these. Throw in a few people lugging around their power bricks like anchors. Or pulling little wagons with their giant power cubes on them.

just do the line again with extension cords all over and have the barista inline talking about its big and thin and then the guy who said dude your a barista walk by with a note 4 or a gs5 or gf5 lol and say something about growing up and getting a real smartphone its not smart if you got to keep charging it.

Basically another year, another 100 milliamp hours. That's how Apple rolls.

1810 mAH battery on iOS equals to 2500 mAH on Android. Apple knows how to get the maximum out of the battery. I'm not worried!

what you dont get and what apple does not get is your adding nfc and bigger screen more power draining things then they are used to, why do you think they pulled the 5.5 o[h6 they know not many will sell its a ipad air.

iPhone 5 has about 3% bigger battery than iPhone 4S, it's got twice as fast SoC, dramatically improved more power hungry display and LTE.
Yet it lasts noticeably longer than the 4S.
It will be very exciting to see what kind of battery life they could possibly make from this.

Apple always squeezes the utmost profit by providing less for more.

Knowing that iOS is power hungry, that battery isnt enough.

The more they add features, the hungry it gets. Just like Android. Ram and Cpu hog.

I wouldn't be surprised. IPhone batteries have always been horrendous.

Why is it news every time a part for the iPhone leaks?
23. engineer-1701d (unregistered)
because it is a phone site and iphone is a phone

Now Android OEMs will copy apple and start putting bigger battery on their phones just like they will copy large screen of iphone.

Are you serious? Android makers had upgraded batteries since 2009. Oh, I forgot your name is Trolloftheyear. More like TrolloftheCentury.

I don't hate Apple, but these articles are getting ridiculous. iPhone 6 home button leaks out! iPhone 6 volume button!! iPhone 6 screw!!! Glue that was used in the iPhone 6!!!! Show us something when it's a real, fully built, not a mockup, not a 3D printed dummy phone that's "supposedly" to be what the iPhone 6 looks like. Until then, zZZzZZZZzzzzz...

I have something substantial: an inside source revealed what iPhone6 smells like! Suprisingly, it has an apple scent, speciffically the McIntosh variety.

Everyone already knows iPhones smell like money and sex.
And occasionally, like homeless people or long term tent campers.

If Apple doesn't watch it, some company is going to come along and start to give customers more. More choice, more flexibility, more keyboards, more features, more sizing options, more apps, bigger screens and bigger batteries, ....just more (for less). Oh wait.
Ah, I bet their faithful flock would never see it.

I'm not getting an iphone again. Android is simply too good now a days. Sony is my favorite brand as of now but they need to make their phones a bit thinner for their compact series. Other than that I have no complains.
34. Adrian38 (Posts: 142; Member since: 05 Nov 2012)
They can't make their compact series thinner, unless you want smaller batteries. They already shrink the phone down substantially for the compact series while keeping all the nice specs. The only way the battery will be decent on those phones is to make the device itself a bit more chunky.

Did PA have forgotten that the HTC One X had a 1800mAh battery and it was a 4.7-inch phone??
31. lolatfailphones (Posts: 203; Member since: 08 Apr 2013)
I just hope Tim knows what he's doing...I would have preferred they at least put a 2100mah

Looks like I'm getting the iphablet
