How long does your cell phone battery last?

What do you do on it? If I use it for music or surfing ,the battery does go down faster, also using an app, or game which I do not use drains it faster. Just phone or text I can last a day or so. I keep it charged up just in case, I have at least three back ups to recharge it in an emergency.    How To  keep your battery going

  • wendythewrite and okmanders If you can I would get spare battery for your type of phone before they discontinue it if you plan to keep the phone long term.

  • idareyou the spare battery idea is usually free, as far as what is draining it, check about phone to see what is active. maybe your WiFi turned on mine keeps doing that. Check the display settings .

  • I forgot to turn off when the display times out to 2min had it set to never turn off that will drain the battery

    My old battery was not lasing half a day so got a replacement and did the charge it up then drain it at least three time, that should make it last longer. Also check your settings look for display set that to low, also use ringers more than vibrate mode, because that mode will drain any phone fast.
