    Certainly have with mine.

    Just the other day I had over 7 hours of usage and almost 3 days on standby.

    I regularly get a good 6-7 hours usage on my iphone 4 while still having it in standby mode for a good 2+ days at least. Another reason why I'm so loving my ipad.

    I can browse the internet for hours and it is perfect for when I'm following the NBA games. Got my ipad 2 just in time for the playoffs :D

    I used to get home and surf the Internet on my iPhone since the wife was always using the laptop. Now I get on my iPad 2 that I bought about two weeks ago and my iPhone doesn't need to be charged as much. I use my iPad 2 much more than my iPhone now. It's nicer because I was constantly going out and forgetting to charge iPhone. But now it's all good. Love the iPad and will always love my iPhone.

    I am for the same reasons. When I'm home my iPad 1st gen gets so much usage and the iPhone 4 sits on charge (if I remember to throw her on charge). If I forget to charge my iPhone can get two full days of usasge before I have to charge her up.

    I use them both at the same time, one acts as a secondary screen.

    I'm guessing he means he doesn't have to charge his iPhone as much.
    .

    As for me, it's about the same since I got my iPad 2.... since I had the iPad 1.:p

    iPad is for browsing

    I tend to use my iPad much more for browsing than either my iPhone or MacBook Pro. I like the fact that it has much more battery life than the other two.

    The more of these threads I read, the closer I am getting to purchasing an iPad.

    Yes! I only have to charge my phone every other day. Sometimes I can go 3 days! The battery life on my ipad is so awesome I only have to charge that every 2-4 days or so depending on what games I am playing!!!
