    My 4S got here yesterday. I charged the battery immediately, and started using it while charging. Today, I unplugged it. It dropped to 7% in 3 hours. Is this a normal battery thing or what? I don't remember anything like this on my 4.

    last night i slept at 2.30am, after a full charged 100%, today wake up at 11.30am. it only 53% left?!!!! that is unacceptable.
    wifi on. 3g on. bluetooth off, push off.

    Chill out guys.give it a few cycles(including one where it dies completely).

    I remember with my 3GS (when I first got it) I had to let it get through a couple of full cycles before the battery life reached full potential. I am planning on letting my 4S die completely and then do a full recharge.

    Also, it's new. You're messing with it a lot. The battery life will suck in this case.

    Once the new factor wears off and you use it normally the battery will last forever. Trust me. :)
