    12:34AM-12:56AM:General usage (checked mail twice, sent 2 FB IM's, refreshed Twitter once, talked on The Spot most of this timeframe. No music, texts, calls, etc.)
    12:57AM: Getting tired, so now will put headphones in and music on (Rdio app) until I fall asleep (which I never do, but for the sake of this test I am.) Still 100% as of 1:01AM. Been 28 minutes according to my Usage, which would normally have 8% drained by now 'cause usually I lose 10% per 30mins. So this is great!
    *
    1:03AM: music playing, head on pillow, shutting eyes now. (I'm hoping to fall asleep, then wake up around 9AM with music still playing to see drain results.)
    *

    I kinda do the whole rapper thing, so I'll leave my iPhone on standby for a little while with music paused until I finish a song (writing verses, rapping, editing, mixing.) Then I wanna sit in sun, so I'll have music on a while after that, hopefully.

    If we were to assume 1hr lasts me that last 20%, then I can conclude I'd have used 9 hours, 35mins used, 11 hours, 20mins standby(?).

    Oh yeah, 3 bars of signal. No 3G available here. On wi-fi still.
    9:11AM: uploaded photo to FB
    9:15AM: 80% now. 8:41AM-9:15AM lost 10%.
    Basically same battery life as first log way above in this post. Not sure if any point in keeping this 2nd log anymore since I lose 10% about every 30mins.
    9:16AM: Assuming I lose 10% per 30mins, I'll have 1% in 4 hours, at 1:17PMish. I know I'll have my phone on standby a lot today since work, so I guess I'll continue with log.
    9:20AM-9:25: Standby w/ music playing. (5mins)
    9:26AM: Had to make 2-3min phone call, then 3G came on for about 40s.
    9:26AM: back on wi-fi
    9:32AM: ok, just noticed on 3G again 'cause I'm standing outside the building waiting for someone to arrive
    10:00: 70% left
    10:00-10:32AM: Standby (32mins)
    10:05AM: music off
    10:40AM: 30s Skype call
    10:56AM: 60% left
    10:56AM-12:56PM: Standby (2hrs)
    12:56PM: Uploaded 2 new photos to FB
    12:56PM: 50% left.
    1:20PM: The Spot, FB, & Twitter
    1:40PM: Ok, I just noticed music was randomly playing on Music app with volume all the way down, for about 10-15mins.
    1:49PM: The Spot a lot.
    2:07AM: 30% left.
    2:14PM: Music on
    2:35PMish: 20% left.
    3:15PMish: 10% left
    3:15PM: music off, on wi-fi now
    *
    Apps used total:
    Messages
    Settings
    App Store (to update)
    Notes (what I'm typing this with)
    The Spot
    FaceBook
    Twitter
    Rdio
    E-Mail
    Safari
    Camera
    Phone
    Skype

    *
    So, from 6:48AM-3:34PM, I am left with 8% battery in all.* Now, as stated in the log, the Usage and Standby times weren't there since I charged phone while it was off.* But you can do the math, and so can I, sooo: 3 hours, 40mins Standby, then 6 hours and however many odd minutes.* I'm assuming Standby would be a lot more, though, since I was playing music on "standby" and when music is played on Standby mode, it counts as Standby and usage.* So those numbers are kind of rough, but the battery lasted about the same as the first log, before the restore.
    *
    So, please leave your feedback here of the post, how your battery compares, how you improved yours, if you've done tests, etc.*
    Thank-you, all!
