    So i just put a new screen on my 3GS. I haven't used this 3gs in a while...and i'm used to my 4.

    Starting at about 25% batt power, i'm down to 5% after an hour of wifi browsing (with an active sim card), screen always on.

    Would you consider that normal batt drain?

    Sounds about normal. I can burn through most of a full charge in a few hours of Wi-Fi browsing.

    Should be a little more for wifi browsing, but 1 hour per 20% (5 hours total batt life) is what the 3GS is rated for.
