I don't have to charge it 2 times a day. And those are also not necessary functions, these are things I don't use which is different with everybody. If you need handoff and spotlight search, then I'm ok with it, but there are definitely other things you don't need.
North America model A16xx (qualcomm modem) offers the same bands as EU A17xx model with Intel modem?

Just admit that iPhone 7 battery life is just good but not enough, charge it 1-2 times a day, what matters? You live at wood? Short of power source? Don't need to lie, don't need to defend, admit it and happy. I'm iPhone 7 user and yes need to charge it 1-2 times a day and what? Electricity in my country still enough. I'm still okay with this!
consumersmartphone, 25 Feb 2017No problem, explain it! I'm former user of iPhone 4, 5, 6. Judge me what ever you want. But pl... moreThe most effective thing is to turn down the display brightness. I almost always use it at half the brightness, which got into me when I used the Xperia M4 Aqua. (And at this phone, half thebrightness is darker)
Then as I said, background refresh for apps I don't need it.
Another thing I do is not to close apps running in the background, because after a few seconds, they get into a power saving mode which is much more efficient than always starting them up and also saves you time.
I don't use handoff, so it's turned off.
I don't use spotlight search (only for searching an app which I don't directly find on my homescreen, but that still works after doing the following) so I turn it off everything in this page, also the apps. But I don't know if this has a big impact for battery life, but it definitely makes older phones faster (newer ones are fast enough to handle without lag)
I only turn on Bluetooth when I need it
I only turn on WiFi when I need it (so not outside)
An effective tip is to turn on flight mode and WiFi at home, so it doesn't connect to mobile network, but I'm too lazy to do this
Another effective tip is to turn on flight mode (Wifi turned off) while charging. I heard it doubles the charging speed. But then you don't receive things like WhatsApp messages so I don't do this.
Automatic iTunes downloads (includes AppStore and Books) are disabled, I don't need and want it and it saves battery because it doesn't search for it in the background every once in a while
You can adjust your location settings under privacy, which can also save a lot of battery.
I use touchID, which is more secure and doesn't take as long as typing in an password, so it saves a little bit of power
I also use iOS 10.3 beta. I heard iOS 10.2 and 10.2.1 have problems with battery life (which I didn't experience) but maybe this has also an impact on battery life.
If you still struggle with your battery, you can use the built-in power saving mode.
So yeah, the settings app is probably the most powerful tool in iOS. The home screen, lock screen and such things may not be as customizable as on android, but the settings app is definitely not far behind of android settings apps if not better.

If I didn't say that explicitly, you would probably say anything bad) and many such things. In case you didn't know, the iPhone has something which is called the settings app. But I see, you are just an android fanboy, so discussing is not worth my time.
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2017Yes it will, if you know how to use and configure an iPhone so that it doesn't need much powerHow? Please educated us!
My mom is using Samsung midranger (2016) and she need to charge her phone 1 time/2-3 days. Look dude, 1x/2-3 days! She is using it for make short phone call, texting, chatting, emailing, alarm, rarely to make vidcall or using camera, we live in big city so 3G or 4G stability is not an issue. Is this how to use the phone to make it last all day? lol
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2017It wont especially if 3g, 4g signals are not steadyYes it will, if you know how to use and configure an iPhone so that it doesn't need much power

The right-hand holes are for a speaker, the left-hand holes are for the barometer to work better. But it still has stereo speakers, and the second one is integrated into the earpiece above the display.

Hi. Mine is just a concern i'm not sure if that's the way the phone is made or there's a problem. The iPhone 7 has two speakers at the bottom, now I recently discovered that on of the two speakers is not working. I discovered that by blocking the other side while playing music and then I realized the sound difference. Please tell me if that's how the phone is made or there's a problem that needs the attention,,,
