All cell phones have a different battery life regardless of the fact that they may all be on the Verizon Wireless network. However, each phone has a battery life indicator to let you know how much time you have before it will die. To check your phone's battery life, it's as simple as taking a glance at the screen.
Take a look at the battery life meter at the top corner of your phone's screen. Regardless of the type of phone you have, there will be a battery meter that indicates how much of a charge you currently have. The more bars you have on that meter, the longer you have left on your phone.
Refer to the manual that came with your phone. Every phone has a different battery expectancy, and this will be listed under your device's specifications in its manual. A BlackBerry may have a longer battery life than a touch-screen, for instance. This has nothing to do with the Verizon Wireless service, but rather the phone itself.
Take note of how much use you get out of your phone on a daily basis. Your device's manual may say that you should get 10 hours of battery life, but this will decline with the phone's age and it's also dependent on how much you use it. The only way you will be able to determine its actual battery life is by breaking down how many hours you get out of it by the end of the day.
Tips & Warnings
- Refrain from putting your phone on vibrate. The vibrate setting is typically the most battery-consuming.
- If you are suspicious of your phone's low battery life, contact Verizon Wireless for the proper support.
