I'm wondering how you would rate my phone's battery performance.

My usage stats when my phone was at 1% battery were:
Usage: 7 hours 15 minutes
Standby: 16 hours 33 minutes

-Wifi on for about 3 hours
-1 exchange push email
-Brightness about 40%
-1-2 hours of games
-An hour iPod
-20 minutes 3G talk time
-Texting/Checking twitter

I'd say that's right on par with mine. Which is good.

Games use alot of juice. So 7 usage hours with heavy Internet/games is very good!

Good for a 3GS.

iPhone 4 should be nine hours usage and 30 hours standby.

His looks fine. There's no science of "X amount of usage and X amount of standby"

There's a billion factors that contribute to battery depletion.

His battery looks top notch.

Oh yeah forgot to mention that it is an iPhone 4 haha...

I'm gonna refrain from playing any games on it today and see how it fares, I feel like that's what drains it the most.

OP. I have an iPhone 4 also. The other poster is clearly being sarcastic. You don't have to "refrain" yourself from playing games.

Depending on a number of factors you may get 6 usage hours or you may get well over 10. It all depends on how you use it. But from what you posted your iPhone battery is top notch. So I wouldn't worry. Use your phone how you want. If a problem does occur then apple will happily replace it.

Trust me, your battery is fine. Enjoy your phone!
