How Often Do You Charge Your Phone?

Other

I find that my iPhone runs out of juice very quickly these days - it definitely cannot make a full day without the power bank giving a boost

I remember my old non smart phones used to last forever - there was one time I didn't need to charge it for almost a week...and then the other time it had been switched off for a full month (obviously when I transitioned to using the smartphones) and it was still on full blocks when I switched it back on again

I charge my phone once a day. Usually at 8:00

If your smart phone has a battery that allows you to change it - it is well worth getting a spare battery I got one for mine - it was £1:50 on ebay. Although I've never had to use it, if going anywhere I carry it with me, batteries that are not holding their charge (a good battery shouldn't drain when the phone is not switched on) need replacing.

I checked my spare battery a few months ago and it was still about 97% charged even though it hadn't been checked for nearly a year.

I do know that many smart phones don't have batteries that can be easily changed - I wonder whose bright idea that was! Mine is an old Blackberry and I'm thinking of getting a new one ready for when it gives up the ghost. (I'll have TWO spare batteries for it) ☺

Lol I’ve an iPhone, which Apple has deliberately made difficult to change batteries. All to their gain as well

Everyday while I’m in bed mostly but I have recently heard it’s bad for battery health to do this!

numerous times throughout the day. I am using it all the time, so the battery gets drained quickly. And it's not even an old phone

At least twice a day and only had it from new since June! Batteries don't last long anymore and I can't change it either as it's built into phone!

Nope Samsung haha. Still just as shockingly rubbish now though.

crazyhair80s really? I though Samsung had a changeable battery, which was what they promised when they wanted to pit themselves directly against Apple. I can't believe they went back on their word

My phone is unpredictable. Sometimes I need to charge it a couple of times a day, and other times I only need to charge it a couple of times a week. It's a Nokia smartphone btw. 📱
