    That's about standard life with constant network traffic across all phones with ~2000mah battery capacity. I think the phone with the biggest battery "might" get around 5 hours with a ~3500mah battery.

    It's a shame that the tech world can't seem to learn from its own history, chasing GHz and other unnecessary specs at the expense of more meaningful metrics like battery life. Long live FM radio.

    1. Turn your brightness down
    2. WhatsApp is a resource hog
    3. 4 hours of hotspot will do that.

    Hotspot is hard on battery life, I believe there is a warning when you set it up, says it should be plugged in.

    I found battery life wasn't that good on 10.3 leaks as opposed to 10.3.1 and honestly, no 10.3.1 leak has felt as fluid or bug-free as 10.3.1.1151. I'd recommend an update.

    But also as everyone else has said, using hotspot really drains the battery the most regardless of the OS.
