Thought I did after the upgrade, but I've just done it again to see if it makes any odds.

86%

Should be fairly good then, once it gets down to 80% it’s fucked.

O/T Nerdy phone advice

Postby Tommy » Thu Oct 10, 2019 9:33 pm

I tend to do stuff like make sure apps aren’t using your location whilst closed or pushing notifications etc plus strategic use of Low Power Mode (add it to your Command Centre). Also I turn off stuff like Wi-fi, data or Bluetooth when not using them. Every little helps. Also put it on airplane mode to charge quicker when necessary.

I reckon I could get a couple of days out of the battery on the iPhone 11 Pro. At the moment I’m typically between 60-70% by the evening. Unheard of for an iPhone until now.

Any tips for the best value mobile right now? Missus needs a replacement for her Sony Xperia 5 thats about 5 years old. I've been getting Moto G# for the kids over the last couple of years, but finally given up on them due to shit durability and ridiculously slow upgrades. Considered a Oneplus for her last year, but they're pretty expensive now, so thinking the next best option for her might be the new iPhone SE.

Any better options for ~500 quid?

I''m planning on buying the daughter a Samsung Note 9 for about that price. She quite likes digital drawing so the pen is a plus point and it gets pretty good reviews.

EDIT: No idea why I can't paste amazon links. AO also had it at £550 a couple of days ago but not any more.
