    3 hours and 46 min.

    Ping turned off, Wifi off, Notifications on, some apps using location services.

    Played 30 minutes of Real Racing 2, browsed the web for about a half hour. check email once or twice, 1 2 minute phone call, downloaded 2 apps and listened to about 2 hours of music.

    I'm usually at 75% by this time of the day not 70%.

    I think my iPod is eating at my battery because every time I open it up freshly it uses data.

    I think it is fine, especially if its only 70%

    lol if you want to think of it like that, i was just trying to confirm that it sounds normal to me

    i charge mine every night weather im at 5 or 65%, a few times a month ill run it down to the point where it shuts itself off to give that full charge

    With that sort of usage I'd expect to be down to 50% so you are doing very well!

    I've just had a weird issue with my battery - I noticed that the battery was nearly empty which was unusual. I checked the usage and it said I had 13 hours 12 minutes of standby and 13 hours 12 minutes of usage!
    So, something has been running constantly on my phone the entire day (no wonder the battery was low!).
    I've rebooted the phone, but if that doesn't fix it I guess I'll try a full restore rather than the update to 4.3 I did previously

    A 5% drift? You're being paranoid.

    You should disable the battery %. Life is so much better without it.
