The iPhone 4S has been out for some time now, and people all over the world have expressed a similar frustration with the device. Many people are upset that the iPhone 4S does not have better battery life.

When the iPhone 3GS was released, the battery life was a huge complaint -- but Apple said that they'd fix the problem with the next generation. The iPhone 4S is supposed to provide 8 hours of talk time, 6 hours of Internet surfing, 10 hours of video viewing, and 200 hours on standby.

Interestingly, studies show that some iPhones have this problem, while others do not. This has resulted in a conclusion among many technology gurus that iPhones aren't all utilizing the new operating system (iOS 5) effectively.

Apple has not publicly stated that there is a problem with the battery life on the iPhone 4S. Many believe that Apple is taking time to do their own research before they address the problem.

Apple did the same thing when there were complaints about the iPhone 4's antenna. Many people claimed the antenna caused dropped calls. It took Apple a few weeks to address the issue in a press release, and finally, give out free bumpers to the users.

Whether this particular problem warrants a response, only time will tell.
