    Much has been stated about battery life on the 3G iphone but I haven't seen a battery poll so here goes. How much time do you get.

    Assume normal usage....web browsing, talking, texting, ipod, few apps.

    4-6 hours with 3G usage, app usage, and email.



    With a 3G phone with a bright, large screen, 4-6 hours is completely acceptable. It's the price we pay, no, the price EVERY 3G phone pays, for having 3G technology. The battery life suffers. If you didn't know this, you should return it.

    More than 6 hours, but I dont know if mine counts. Im at work most of the day, so I dont play with it. After I leave work, its perm attached to my hand :D My bedtime (around 10-11 PM), its time to charge it up.

    6 straight hours. Not in your pocket for 6 hours. If you are on your phone for six straight hours during the course of a work day, barring some job exceptions, you need a new job.



    It's a 3G phone

    It has a bright, huge screen

    It has GPS

    It's thin


    And people thought this was gonna get great battery life? You people need to get more tech savvy. The iPhone has quite good battery life against the competition.

    6+ hours with push and 3G enabled. It's really not that bad - and push doesn't make much of a difference (according to my testing I get about 10% shorter battery life with push enabled vs. fetching every 30 minutes - so really not much of a difference).

    Yesterday it lasted 17 hours with 3G + push enabled at work during the day and EDGE + WiFi + Push enabled at work. That's much better than my HTC TyTN used to be.

    I am using Exchange Push, 3G, and goofing around with a bunch of apps (so using the GPS). I only got about 2 hours before the thing was ready to die. Any ideas? I turned auto dim off, and brightness down to 30%. I am going to test just on Edge now.

    gps sucks down the battery pretty bad

    turn off location services unless you need to use the gps.
