    Looks pretty good to me, if not better than most. Don't you think so?

    i'd say thats right on...actually pretty damn good. turn the wifi off and only use it when you know you in a wi-fi area and it will be even better. I hear wifi is the biggest battery hog.

    My 2G battery was always fine. Just got the 3GS and the first charge lasted

    Use - 4hr 20min
    Standby - 4 Days 2 hours

    This took it down to about 5%

    Now on second charge and so far
    Use - 2hr 18 mins
    Standby 2 days 5 hours
    Now at 49%

    This has been with location services on and wifi on all the time. (second charge)

    I was amazed by the same results, settings are a little different than yours but generally the same and i get about 7 1/2 hours of charge before i hit 5 percent, which surprises me because i would only get 3 1/2 to 4 out of my 3g when i had it which amazes me how much different it carrys the charge.

    I consistently hit the 20% marker like clockwork after 3 hrs of use on my black 32GB 3GS while connected to 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth enabled. I think my phone is defective because my girlfriend's white one gets 5+ hours at the same settings. I don't use the iPod, play games, use apps with push, or anything but send a few texts and talk on the phone. Anyone else getting extremely low batt life like this?

    good to know im not the only one with 3-4 hours with battery life. I have 3G, bluetooth, push, fetch to off and still that life.

    one day i hit 6 hours and i was so happy, then i realized i listened to ipod for 4 hours that day :(

    im guessing this is not due to a defective phone and just something normal? if anyone have any insight, then please let me (us) know
