    Hey, just a curiosity question. I keep my brightness almost as low as it can go, e-mail push notifications are turned off, all push is off besides texts and Facebook really... spotlight search is turned off, apps are closed immediately so none are running in the background. Does this seem right? I mean the brightness throughout the day was on almost none.. It seems like it dies a little fast. Some days the battery can stay at 100% for an hour, other days for only 5 minutes.

    Sounds about right. 3G tends to drain the battery a lot, its best to turn it off if you won't be needing it for a long period of time (i.e. overnight).

    9 hours of usage is a lot. Unless you were listening to music for most of it.

    I agree. It's not the total usage but the type of usage. If I am listening to music all day, I can get 13-15 hours of use.

    However, start adding internet browsing especially over 3G instead of wifi...the battery drains much faster.

    If I am doing strictly Netflix over 3G experiment like I did last month, my battery is dead in 5 hours.

    I'm squeezing 20 - 25 out of my iPod Touch while only listening to music (some minor wifi usage)

    Sounds about right. Apple says you can get 24 hours of just music playback on your ipod touch/iphone device if music is strictly playing.

    Apple is one of the few manufacturers that's on the spot in terms of specifying the correct battery times of their devices.

    You can save yourself a lot of hassle and not kill your apps all the time, not really necessary on an iPhone.
