    Battery 101

    Can someone please explain to me why one person can have a smartphone with a battery that lasts for days and another person can have a smartphone with a battery that can't make it through an 8-hour shift? I know that when you have apps running all the time, it seriously affects the battery, but is there more to it than that?

    I think some batteries are stronger or more powerful than others, so I don't think it's just the apps alone. I also think it has something to do with how you charge the battery and whether or not you follow the manufacturer's recommended guidelines for charging.

    In my opinion this is also related to the brand of phone you have. I'd like to do some more research on this topic to see if there is a clear leader in the battery stakes!

    I think Techhappy makes a good point. It seems like some phone manufacturers supply better batteries with their phones than others. It also seems like the carrier has something to do with it. I've had both Verizon and Metro PCS in the past and noticed that even if both carriers sell the same phone, the battery in the Verizon phone will last longer than the battery in the Metro PCS phone.
