Without reading further into the content, all iphone users would already know what I am talking about! Yes we love the phone and most of it’s features but there are some features we love less because of the limitations, lack of controls or less than satisfactory organization etc. However majority of which will be addressed in the launch of OS 4.0 without us having the need to jailbreak it.
But the battery drain on this phone is ridiculous! So to save battery juice aka blood you’ll need to turn off some of the functions regularly when in idle mode and that is probably all the advice you’ll get on the subject. You cannot even buy a spare iPhone battery for standby because there is no way for the laymen to change it on their own without destroying it!
So is there absolutely nothing you can do about it? Well not exactly…you can sacrifice the aesthetic slim, sleek curves of it for more power! Noooooo! you’d probably scream! You love the slender look even with your designer case on. So why would anyone want a chubby looking one? or even to feel one in their pocket? Well the look and feel becomes secondary when you travel for longer periods without having an outlet to charge your phone!
Here are some of the options I have personally considered :-
