    I wanted to get an idea of how long your battery lasts now that it's been almost two year. If you could state:
    Time between charges
    Typical time talking on the phone
    Typical time using apps/playing games

    I'm interested to see how well the non-user replaceable battery holds up over time.

    my battery sucks I charge it over night, it's not even dark out when my phone is yelling at me that it's at 20%

    I'm going to try and replace my battery I'm out of warranty.

    My first one, battery life was a little worse, but I think it's about the same as my current iphone 3g... I think it just depends on how much you use it, what you use it for and what you have on and off

    Time between charges: Usually 8AM-12AM is the time I use my phone.
    Typical time talking on the phone per day: Usually 20 minutes. I text all day though. When I talked on the phone a lot... I talked about 2 hours+ on the phone and that'd seriously drain my battery. But that was usually all at once.
    Typical time using apps/playing games: Maybe 20 minutes as well.
    Safari usage: About an hour before I go to bed. Sometimes more.

    This is recently.

    Last summer

    Time between charges: 8AM-2AM
    Typical time talking on the phone per day: About 30 minutes. Text all day.
    Typical time using apps (mainly eBay at the time): About 1-2 hours.
    Music time: 9AM-3PM (maybe a hour break for lunch, depended on my mood)
    Safari usage: About an hour or so. I was bored during work a lot.

    I don't even get down to 50% most of the time and can go 2 days without charging. Not in the summer stats though.

    EDIT: Btw, my settings are:
    Brightness: 15%
    Fetch: Off
    Push: Off

    Basically most stuff manually check and over all everything I do is to save power. For some reason I hate my screen up at 50% or higher.
