    Hallo to everybody!

    I think it would be a good thing for everyone to do a survey about our iPhone 4 battery life.

    In my case: with all enabled (ultrasn0w, lockinfo, mail push, multitasking) my battery life is about 2 days (48h).
    In the two nights i go in airplane mode so 32 - 34 h iPhone works and 16 - 14 h it sleeps.

    I'm very satisfied. 2 days for a smartphone is not so bad.

    And you?

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Your post means nothing without detailing your usage. Also, who puts their phone in airplane mode for the night?

    I posted on the basis of the average day of use. Internet surfing, texting, calling, gaming (angry birds/fruit ninja/tony hawk/doodle jump). It really depends on how much you think your battery life is when you factor in standby. I can have it asleep for the entire night and lose a percent or 2. In the end, I've noticed that I can go 2 days worth without having it charged. I have it fully charged at 8AM and don't decide to charge it until late the next day (I want it charged the night before because I have class all day the next day). I have to say I am very pleased with the battery life of the iPhone 4. I played spider man and mirror's edge all day, beating all both the games which totaled about 6 hours of gaming and my phone had about 4% battery life. So as a portable game player, 6 hours of intense gaming is enough for me. Most of the other smart phones can't come close to that so I am very happy.

    My battery last me 4-4.5 hours of non stop playing games. Not sure if that is good but whatever. But if I use it normally, it'd last about 2 days.

    I have to charge my phone every night or I won't make it through the next day but I do get a full day's use out of it.

    That being said, I'm also a power user of sorts-- well, I guess dork is a better word. I use it constantly to look up things, check twitter, receive and respond to emails and texts on the fly (thousands per month), watch democracy now, play games. I do web work and when I have meetings with people I'll often tether through the whole meeting.

    All in all I'd have to say I spend at least 4.5 hours a day glued to my iPhone. The fact that it can get me through all of that without a charge is pretty awesome.

    I wonder if power consumption will become so efficient in mobile devices that in a few years we'll get the kind of battery time that we used to on dumbphones. That would be pretty awesome.

    i have MOG running from 9am (start work) till 7pm (end work) and break for 2 hours lunch time...

    in between there will be mails, macrumors forum, sms, meebo, with about 2 hours total of facetime and skype/yahoo video calls, ..,..

    and the phone would still be ~20% by work end, and last for another hour for the gym with MOG...

    so basically, not too shabby i think...
