    Is it bad enough to bring to apple to have them look at it?

    A lot of people are having the same issues. Hopefully Apple is working on a fix. The battery life on the 4S is really, really bad.

    You can fix it by turning off all the stuff that makes an iPhone an iPhone, but in that case, you might as well go with another cheaper smartphone.

    Does anyone think it is worth me going to the apple store, to get a possible replacement?

    I'm getting about the same as my 4, although the "S" seems to use a little more on standby. But always get 6 total hours of usage

    I've attached a picture of mine. Does this look normal?

    That depends on what that usage was. Surfing the net via wi-fi, streaming movies via 3G, listening to music, navigating with a GPS app or playing a 3D game all have hugely different power requirements, so we really cant tell.

    Might be a placebo effect, but I turned the stocks widget off in my notification center and it seemed to improve the battery life a little bit.
