"Apple's iPhone 5S has a 1560 mAh battery, while the iPhone 5 has a 1440 mAh battery. The iPhone 5S also packs Apple's new 64-bit A7 SoC with M7 co-processor, an updated camera, Touch ID fingerprint authorization, 1 GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 64 GB of storage, WiFi 802.11 a/b/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and LTE."
So I wonder if it's power consumption, like portions of the computer not sleeping as much as it shou, processes taking unnecessary computing power, or if it's a physical problem with the battery chemistry?
Those specs do have some bearings, @nebun, higher specs requiring more electricity to support them, especially so with nicer screens, and 1560 mAH is toward the lower end of what Androids pack, so the battery performance is already piss-poor to start with.
And @tecej iProducts have batteries internal like Palm's not Android phones where it is interchangeable like Windows Mobile <6. So under warranty it is faster to replace, not providing service credits and end up having to go without phones for a day.
apple are done! with the new macbooks being held together by glue. issues like this. there is even a defect with the 5C, the gyro in all 5 varients! and an OS that looks like it was made in the 1990's im so glad I switched to android, and learnt . much more freedom, I can install what I want, watch what I want without apples bloatware. just let it happen Iphone users. it hurts at the start. but after that initial bit, it starts to feel good to use an android!
In all seriousness, defects can happen with any product that is mass produced on the scale that these things are. However, this does prove that all of the comments about Apple justifying exorbitant prices for "quality and craftsmanship" are nonsense. They are no better than anyone else in these areas.
