Why is my daughters iPhone 4S going to 50% in 3 hours.
I got my daughter a used iPhone 4S for Xmas. The battery life in her phone was getting drained pretty quickly when she used it so I thought it needed a new battery. So I bought a new battery and replaced and now she is seeing almost the same battery life.
If you charge it to 100%, let it sit unused, the battery stays relatively charged. However, if she uses it, she can literally take it from 98% to 50% in 2-3 hours.
Is there any reason for this?
Could it be a "short" of some kind?
I did notice something when I replaced the battery. The little cable that comes from the speaker module under the battery connector had no covering left where it touches the little clip on the board about a half of an inch before the connector. I figured the covering was removed there on purpose for some sort of "ground" to the board. Now I am wondering if the lack of covering there could be a problem. So is the covering suppose to be there or not because I could easily get some shrink wrap there and fix it if it is not suppose to be touching the holding clip.
Thanks in advance for help.
Is this a good question?
