    I've had the 3GS for almost a week and very concerned about the battery. It feels like it drains so quickly. Compared to the 1st gen, it seems like it has worse battery life.

    For example, playing a game like Bloons will drain about 20% after playing for about 15-25 minutes. I remember on the 1st gen it did not deplete that fast. And this is 3g, location services, and push all off. The usage says 2 hours and 50 minutes. Now I know you're all thinking "yeah well that makes sense," but I haven't been using it for that whole amount of time. It's just been on. I don't know really, just in comparison it feels like it drains so much faster.

    Or maybe I have been using it for that long... Anyway, anybody else concerned

    Until you give us more information we can't recommend anything. Is it normal? I don't know, you just said bloons drained your battery 20%...
