Smartphone for photos

I have an iPhone 6s plus. I had a new battery, but it still doesn't last long even when Im not using the phone, just overnight it looses 20% or more at times.

Ive tried switching off all the things the YouTube guys say, but its still the same.

SO, as I take a lot of photos with the iPhone, dont often use it for forums only WhatsApp and Facebook messenger which smartphone would you recommend ? I dont treat myself to much so price doesn't come into it .

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I've been very happy with my Samsung S9.

If you've had a new battery, the power loss must be down to underlying activity (assuming battery is not faulty). I go into Settings now and again and find apps chuntering away that I'm not using. I may have opened them once, and then they have kept running in the background unseen. Also, each time I look at something new it effectively opens up another browser, so there may be 20 or more browsers open. Eventually it reaches a limit and the oldest one shuts down as a new one opens, but it's all using power. On my phone there is an icon in the bottom corner that allows you to close as many as you like. I don't know if iphone has the same.

I dunno why I'm saying all this, you are far more able with pooters and stuff than I am!

How often do you charge it Jan? I charge mine every night. The fact you say it loses 20% overnight indicates you don't. Smartphones were never designed to last as long on a single charge as the old non-smart phones.

The Wife has just had a new battery in her iPhone6S. This is the advice she got for battery life.


Charge it until it shows 100% then leave it charging at least 1 more hour.
Use it until the battery is totally flat.
Charge it fully + at least one hour.
Then use as normal.

Tugs.
I have gone through the whole thing again on Youtube with the 2 chaps who are Apple "experts". and there were a few things they suggested that I hadnt done, so now we will see how it behaves.

Jean.
Sometimes the battery is full before I go to bed so I unplug it and in the morning its lost some. Like now its down to 30% ao I will plug it in and by the time I go to bed it will be full.

I think they advise that on new batteries Jim, thats what I had to do with this one, let it completely drain 3 times although I thought that had stopped being necessary a few years back.
