    Just something I was thinking about earlier....

    With the new 4s battery being slightly more powerful, but same size as 4, has anyone tried putting the 4s battery in an i4? Will it work? Will it give the i4 more standby/usage time?

    Don't know if it will fit, but there is only about 1% capacity difference between the iPhone 4 battery and iPhone 4S (1,420 mA/h vs. 1,432 mA/h)

    Very true. But with the extra mA/h in the i4 i would imagine it would make a little bit of a noticable difference since the A4 chip isnt as power hungry as the A5 and the graphics on the 4s?

    It would make about 1% difference. So if you get 8 hours now, you'd get ~8:05 with a 4S battery. Not enough difference to matter unless you are replacing the battery anyway.
