Battery Life in pokemon Go


Is pokemon go killing your phone? It takes atleast 40% my battery. I am forever charging and searching for hotspots.

Tell some stories of times your phone died or was near death.

I remember during an Exraid i kept drifting from the ex location due to low battery and poor signal, ended up missing out on the Mewtwo. :frowning: i did get free raid passes tho for my drift.


Yes Pokemon Go drains my battery. On my old phone it used to burn the battery down to 0 in half an hour. On my current phone it’s more like in about 4 hours.


Battery life has never been great on the iPhone 6s but since the last update it seems to be going down a lot quicker and I have to put it on battery sooner.


All they give you is raid passes, when it was 100% there fault? Lol how stupid


My phone usually last about 7 hours but it’s a newer Galaxy J-3 Luna Pro


Gym lobby’s and raid lobby’s are really laggy it’s unbearable


I use my iPhone 6 as the secondary phone & it lags uncontrollably. Apple have admitted to slowing the processing down on the older phones once the new phones are released.
iPhone 7 is normally fine though, just overheats when I’m hotspotting the 6.


It takes alot of battery, that’s for sure :sweat_smile:


Apple is being stupid. Slowing down phones just to get people to get the new ones


Ya, my sister’s phone will become bricked soon


We have like three gyms in our town where iPhones won’t work
