Run a test. Fully charge your phone, let music play most of the day and see how long it lasts.

You'll probably have a mini tv/screen on the flight anyways.

I know some Air Canada aircrafts (the ones with the personal tv's) have usb outlets on the headrests... you can charge your phone through that, no?

Is the battery life honestly that bad on iPhones now?

My Galaxy S3 pushes exchange email all day, syncs two other email accounts, has to stay connected to LTE, has to handle any texts and calls, and I still play music for the entire 8 hours that I'm working at my desk.

My battery is not even below 50% at the end of the day (unplugged from 7am-midnight).
I went to Greece in June and on the 10 hour flight with my Galaxy S2 (before I got my newest phone) it had ~65% left after playing music for 10 hours on flight mode (and a bunch of fruit ninja).


Don't really want to turn this into an argument between smartphones but I'm shocked that people are saying an iPhone cannot do this. In my mind when I read the thread title I thought the answer would be overwhelmingly "yes".


In any case depending which sort of plane you're flying on there very well may be a USB jack on the back of the seat in front of you. That was the case for my flight to and from Paris on my way to Greece (Air Transat).


iPhone is popular because of marketing, thats all. S3 kills the iPhone in EVERYTHING. No wonder Apple sued Samsung, BUTT HURT.

My bro's S3 has NFC, Wifi, LTE, Bluetooth and GPS on, along with maximum brightness and max volume, and he still gets 10+ hours of continuous music, web browsing and game playing. I will definitely get a Samsung phone as my next phone, especially with Jelly Bean OS (heard it is still way better than the leaked iOS 6)

Well your going on a plane so if its in airplane mode of course it will last that long. I can get mine working for 10+ hours usage with music playing and fiddling with games, email, etc.

From what I have been hearing the new iOS 6 is a huge improvement. Also what can you use NFC for up here anyways right now? I know down in the USA some places are implementing it at stores etc. but haven't heard anything for canada.

OMGzzz the Samsung Galaxy 3 iz so much Betterz then tha iPhone 4s!!!!

Really who cares.

To OP check the Apple website as they usually show much battery life each of their products has.

If you have airplane mode on and your brightness is low it should last up to 8 hours easy, just bring a outlet charger or what others have said with those charging cases and whatnot.

My third generation iPod lasted up to 7.5 hours once and there was still 25% battery life left.

NFC can be use to exchange data between Samsung phones, so it isn't just a payment tool. Am sure its use will be expanded in the future. I know iPhone 5 will be lacking NFC and Apple might face a law suit from Samsung because of their implementation of the LTE technology (Samsung has the patent rights). Even if iOS 6 improves a lot over iOS 5, I doubt it will reach the functionality of a polished Jelly Bean OS.

You seem to care, otherwise you wouldn't have responded like that. The fact is, Samsung S3 is much better than iPhone 4S whether you like it or not, and it might even be better than the upcoming iPhone 5. Am not a fan boy of either and don't really care about sticking to one brand, I only pick the best products out there when shopping.

Ah ok, I know it was widely talked about in the states because of shopping. I wish the S3 was a bit smaller and I would have opted for that (or the S2 probably at the time) instead of the iPhone 4S but I am still happy with my purchase regardless, does what I need it to do efficiently. Anything after my BB Storm wins pretty much!

I only said that because it seems as if a debate between the the Galaxy S3 and iPhone 4s was about to start, otherwise I actually really don't care.

I;ve had my Iphone4s since the day it was released and my battery will easily last 12 hours playing constant music and texting and chiving all day at work. its games that kill the battery.


so yes, you should have no issue listening to music for 10 hrs.

Oh and remember to turn the brightness to the lowest possible.

Biggest factor for battery life. Had my iPad on for 12+ hours on a plane from China to Vancouver, was watching movies on it the whole time. I put it at the lowest possible brightness, got back to Vancouver with it on like 92% batt.

I know iPad battery > Iphone but you get my point

iPad display and gpu is significantly greater than the iPhone as well.

The main problem with battery life and iPhones is the amount of background apps running, then secondary things like data, WiFi, bluetooth, widgets, and so on.
