Why am I only getting 3 hours of battery life on my iPhone 4S?

Episode 977 (2:23:28)

Damian from California

Damian is 10 and has an iPhone 4S, but the battery dies in about 3 hours. Leo says that's largely because Damian plays with it a lot. He also noticed that the phone crashes after overheating. Could there be something wrong with it? Leo says there probably is. He advises taking it to the Apple Store. They'll replace it if it's still under warranty. To preserve the battery life, he should turn down the brightness, turn off bluetooth, and check email manually. Also, bad reception will kill the battery as well since the phone is working to find it. Set the screen to turn off in 1 minute.
