What ?

At the same power a dual-core has less power consumption than a single core.

What you meant and what you said were 2 completely different things. Likewise, you are still wrong. Dual cores DO NOT finish tasks twice as quickly. You require multi-threaded code, and a few other architectures or algorithms, to take advantage of a dual core. And as it is common knowledge, dual cores rarely scale by 100%, in real world applications. There are way too many factors to consider. Let alone, the real fact, which is odd coming from someone who codes, that mutli-threaded code can scale more then twice as fast. Again, you have no idea what you are talking about...and I'm beginning to think you aren't even a coder...let alone, a good one at that.

The REAL FACT remains that non-threaded code or code that does not support multi-processors will see little to no benefit with the introduction of a dual core when single core performance is roughly the same. And before you want to jump on that and pick up your loose pieces, I'm not referring to the A4 and A5, but dual cores in general.

Please, either learn your stuff or stop posting in these threads. I dislike apple and yet I can defend them better then you. LOL.



Thanks for repeating what I just said.



It is, and I've confirmed this in this and the last post. You go on an apple crusade attempting to prove the nay-sayers wrong and yet your own information is also wrong. It just sickens me. Get off your wooden horse, stop posting wrong information about your beloved product. It is just making apple fanboys just as bad as the other fanboys/haters.

You might just need to improve your grammar.
Wow... just wow.

Obviously, if a dual core and a single core use the same amount of power at 100% usage, then the dual core will be more efficient than the single core, even on a single-threaded process. Not that hard to figure out that the dual core will only be using slightly more than half of the power the single core is using when running a single-threaded process.

Seems that you're the one on an anti-apple crusade attempting to prove the apple-lovers wrong and yet your own information is also wrong. It just sickens me. Get off your wooden horse, stop posting wrong information about your hated product. It is just making apple haters just as bad as the other fanboys/haters.

Didn't read any other posts, but there's no fix for a dual-core 1ghz processor sucking battery life. iPhone users are used to 500mhz, sub 4" screens and long battery life, and now that apple is FINALLY getting with the times and adding faster processors, more features, and probably soon a bigger screen, it's simply taxing the battery as it should.

Anyone who's a avid android phone modder / user (like myself) laughs when they read all these "fix your iPhone 4s battery drain problem by disabling xxxxxxx" Cause it's the stuff we've been doing for years already. The price we pay to have the best screen, fastest processors and newest features is less battery life.

The 3gs ran at what 500mhz with a dinky ass screen? Even the iPhone 4 was under clocked to 800mhz. I have a Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (lul name). Stock mhz is 1200, but when I downclock and undervolt my phone at 800mhz I get 40% better battery life. It's really simple logic.

Now I realize not all phones are created equal. Some queer phones will have problems with battery / iOS or something else that's draining battery unusually fast, but this is present with all phone makes and models alike. It just cracks me up that iPhone users are finally getting the things that they ***** they want, and they still expect 24+ hours out of the same, mediocre sized battery the iPhone is packed with.

They announced it as an iOS5 issue. It'll be fixed in the next revision.

It's a software bug. Apple has even acknowledged it as such, and is fixing it in iOS version 5.0.1.

Believe it when I see it =p

There very well may be a bug, but as a whole, from talking with my friends, the battery life is less then the ip4. I don't own one so I'm just going by what they say. They dont have any drastic problems though. Beyond that there may very well be an OS issue.

Here's the problem with that. The battery life of the iPhone 4 is diminished, too. Did our batteries suddenly and inexplicably get worse?

Dude, you REALLY shouldn't just spout off random crap when you clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

1) The processor in the 4S and the 4 have the same power draw
2) The screen on the 4S and the 4 are exactly the same.
3) There's no "features" that would increase battery draw. If anything, some features, like the dual antennas, should help increase battery life.

1) That's not quite true. Many times the 4S will finish tasks quick enough that it uses less power, but some others it won't (although the difference isn't too substantial) and then you've got intensive 3D gaming for example which will draw more power.

I recommend everyone to read Anandtech's battery life page on the 4S: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4971/a...att-verizon/15

It explains it very clearly. As I said, in many instances the A5 will use less power and in some others it will use a little more, and with intensive 3D gaming it'll use a fair bit more but still nothing ridiculous.
