    Realistically how long does your guys iPhone 4 battery last, like the usage? Wondering cuz I about 7hours of usage from 100% to 2%. I use to get more then 7hrs. So thinking about getting the phone checked out if battery problems at apple store.

    What do you guys do on your phones all day? I've been using mine since launch and I get around 5.5-6 hours usage on a charge.

    Surf, facebook, twitter, couple games and text. All via wifi unless there isn't any. Some times I feel like the battery percentage goes down rather quickly.

    Usually, I get around 5 hrs of somewhat heavy use.

    i go all day on a charge...usually around 7 hours of actual usage. I use it to surf the net, play pandora, tether and email stuff. not too many games.

    I can get a good day and a half to two days of what I consider "normal" use during the work week.

    For me that is texting, facebook, safari, ebay, some beejive and the occasional robot wants kitty or angry birds.

    If I'm off, I go through the battery a lot quicker and I can get about a full day out of it.

    I normally get around 7 hours. Depends how much I actually use it and what I'm using it for.

    If you're really worried about it, try unjailbreaking first, then restoring if that doesnt help, and then I would take it into the Apple store.

    but it does seem like a 4.3.1 problem... in 4.1, i could leave it 10 hours on idle and only drop 0-1% battery...


    how would i unjailbreak it?

    It's pretty unreliable to compare our battery run times since there are so many variables. I get about five hours of continuous work via wifi on the web, as well as email on a travel day for work.

    No restore through iTunes and set phone up as new.

    Mine lasts only 5 hours or so before it hits 10%, but 80% of the time i use it, I play games, surf and check email constantly.

    I once got 9 hours when on a trip and only used it to check my email every other few hours.

    would my app's save files be lost too?
    such as a game's high score or progress records

    Yes they would be gone. You would have to start over.

    It seems like the battery drain problem started with 4.3-no?
    I thought 4.3.1 was supposed to solve this problem.

    My iPhone lasts about 9 hours of use. This use involves maps, internet, email, calls, texting and checking public transport timetables. I do pretty much everything with my iPhone.

    Thanks for all the responses. Went to the apple store and they took a look after few mins talking with them, they decided to replace the phone.
