Battery Life in pokemon Go


#1

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


#5

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


#6

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


#7

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:


#9

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