Do you charge it daily, or after 2 days or once a week...sometimes the charge is lost when someone keeps you calling repeatedly...or you try to reach someone..but your calls are missed...so how powerful is your phone battery...have you ever changed it while your phone was alright but only battery life gone???

Sad to admit, my cell phone seldom rang. Thus, the maximum it can go without charging is around 3 days or 4, but by then it will be almost down to the last bar of batt and any calls or messages and my cell phone batt will be gone. In the past, cell phones battery can last longer. Anyway, I don't have a spare battery thus if my phone really goes flat, then I will just have to bear the day without cell phone.

my phone original batter normally can last 3 -4 days, if i do not have too many calls and messages, can last too long, if i call many everyday ,it just lasts 2 days.

The charge on my phone varies based on the type of phone, and how much use it gets. My samsung stripe lasts about three to four days. I end up charging it at least once two twice a week. I replace the battery anually (even if I don't need to,) because I'd hate to be without a phone if a hurricane knocked out the power. So I keep spare batteries and I keep them charged.

Hi! I own a Samsung D600 and it has been serving me well for over 5 years now. It has never been repaired, still in tact, with minor scratches, and best of all the battery is so good I am recharging it every 2 days. Its a great phone that I don't feel the need to replace it.

If I am just texting on my phone, the battery lasts a very long time but the minute I make calls or get many calls on it, it will start to drain. I try to make it a habit to make sure my phone is charged before I leave the house so if there is an emergency I can use my phone or someone can reach me. I never run into the problem of totally replacing the phone battery because there was no life left in it.

Hi eshaan, I find the battery of a new bought cellphone usually can work for longer time. Let's say the battery of my Nokia cellphone using currently become weaker and weaker after using it for almost three years. Its lifespan is not as powerful as that during the first year when I bought it. This depends on the length of the talk time as well. During those days it needed to be charged after every four days. If the talk time was busy it had to be charged after three days. At the present moment it needed to be charged in every other day. This shows that the lifespan of the old battery has become shorter. And the battery is no longer powerful anymore I think it's time for me to replace it with another new device with has durable new battery Happy posting

I have been using nokia cellphone for quite some times. This is the third cellphone with the same brand I have currently. I find battery of this brand is more durable if compared to that of the other brand I used before. It’s not saying that all the battery of cell pones of that brand do not have longer lifespan. I’m just afraid that might be my luck was not that good, and happened to pick the one with unsatisfied quality battery. I say this because my friends don't have such problem as well even they use the same brand cell phone. Yeah, it’s really inconvenient that I have to charge the less durable lifespan battery frequently. I shift back to nokia cellphone after using it for almost two years Thanks for giving the best response Happy posting

I keep my charger at office. I have three cell phones. One needs to be recharged every day. Second one has a good battery and it takes a day to go down, and it takes one hour to get charged. But the secret is that I turn it down during the night after 10:00pm it is switched off. Second one is good but it needs to get charged, after one day or its battery will go down. I get most of the calls on this number and long too as this one is offical number :)

Hi, cellphone technician here, from the Philippines. Normally, it is 48 to 72 hours especially if the battery is still new. But when you notice the battery starts to bloat, it is time for you to replace that with a new one. Also don't overcharge batteries. Charging of 2-3 hours is enough. Don't let it charge overnight. It will be damaged.

Mine usually lasts around a week which I think is really good as most cellphone batteries don't last all that long, usually a couple days at the most. I am so glad that mine lasts as long as it does, but only if I just use it for talking. If I use it for texting or accessing the web, I have to charge it up more often. I usually get calls on it everyday, and I don't really talk a lot when I do get them, but even when I do talk a long time, the battery will stay up for a bit anyway. I don't think to many cellphones out there have very good batteries in them, so to have one that last at least a week, to me is really good. I try to limit what I do on the cellphone, so the battery will last. I think the less I have to charge it, the longer it will last. Take care, and happy mylotting.

I usually charge my cell phone when I'm at home coz that's the only time I have to charge it for me to avoid low battery when I'm travelling. Although not a good idea at all but I need my cell phone during my work and on emergency situation.
