    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.

    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. :)
