Just recently Ive noticed that the battery in my iPhone isnt as efficient as it used to be - but I thought maybe I was using it more than usually.

So last midnight I had phone charged to 100%.
In the morning did few things and the battery was down to 98%. Then I played quick round of bejewelled and browrsed web and battery was down to 93% (I dont use sound in any games and my phone is on silent most of the time).
After that I skyped my home for about 5-10min with video on loudspeaker and it went down to 48%. At the time this post is being published I'm down to 45%.

I use wifi in living room but upstairs had to use 3G for skype.

Should I bring it to apple or is it normal thing to have the battery drained so quick?

I have 46.5GB free space left. Its almost 12 here so were talking 12 hours since full charge and about 4 hours when this phone was used as usual.

Thanks

33% left with 4h44min usage and 14h29min standby?

You're fine, that battery life is definitely normal, especially with a Skype call thrown in.

But does it mean I used it for 4h45min non stop?

No, it means that since you last fully charged it, you've actively used it with the screen on for 4h45min.

Your battery seems fine. If you're concerned, just keep monitoring it.

I think that is usage since last charge. It's the accumulation of time, not non-stop.

Depends. I can usually get around 8 hours give or take 2 depending on a few things.
