A “Small” iPhone Update

iPhone 4S

This iPhone 4S is again running at full charge. It’s now had its second battery transplant. Presently on its third battery since new in October 2011. Not too shabby for an almost eight-year-old phone.

The battery cost is between $10.00 to $15.00 depending on the tools ordered with the battery. Micro-drivers are necessary as well as good eyes and steady hands. Both of those are starting to run out on me, just like the old batteries. Ha!

That cost and a little effort sure beats the heck out of a large new phone that I don’t want or need. The new phones are like carrying around a mini iPad. Reminds me of the old “boom box” on the shoulder days. Here is the size of the 4S:

Size and Weight

  • Height: 4.5 inches (115.2 mm)
  • Width: 2.31 inches (58.6 mm)
  • Depth: 0.37 inch (9.3 mm)
  • Weight: 4.9 ounces (140 grams)

Mine weighs 140.06 grams.

Max performance (when new and original OS) is 8 or 14 hours talk time (3g or 2G) and 8.3 days on standby. I was down to about 15 minutes of each. It’s like, “Why did I wait so long?”
