    You might have a lot of notifications turned on. Also, push email can drain the battery as well.

    It depends on what you have on. Bluetooth? Push? Anything?

    I have push for Exchange and thats it. Never had this problem on my 3G.

    May need to setup the iPhone as "new". Did a restore.

    EDIT: Going to kill Angry Birds before I go to sleep tonight. Never had it on my 3G...

    Always RESTORE AS NEW when you upgrade hardware. I feel like I can't say this enough.

    Any particular reason why?

    Do you mean when you hook up the phone for the first time that you should set it up as a new phone? Why can't you just restore from our most recent back up?

    I feel like my battery is still getting drained pretty quick. I think like a 30 minutes Facetime call drained my battery 20% or so.

    I've been pretty impressed myself. First charge I was able to run it for 36 hours of standby time and almost 7 hours of moderate to heavy usage. Battery still had 6% of a charge left. Really incredible for a touch screen device.

    67% after 2 hours 6 minutes use and 13 hours standby.

    3g was off (I just got it and havn't even made a call on it yet lol) with wifi on, usage was only a little actual web surfing but mostly was just ipod usage. I havn't watched any videos and bluetooth is off. Since ive had it the phone has mostly been asleep as you can tell so i don't know if this is normal or faulty with the usage ive put it through. I definitely thought it would last longer than this.

    Oh ya i havn't played any games or anything like that for more than 5 minutes since ive got it.

    Yeah, I'm also getting abysmal standby battery life. 20% drops overnight, it's ridiculous. This was with airplane mode...

    HUGE difference for me from going from Push to Fetch 15 minutes for my MobileMe services (including Mail) and I don't think I'm going to bother going back to Push. Some people need it though..

    Something is definitely wrong then. In airplane mode I lost 1% in 12 hours...

    Thanks for this, I'm definitely going to go to an Apple store if this isn't sorted out in a week.

    I restored from a 3Gs 4.0 backup and have had 0 issues. Battery life has been outstanding.

    My battery is working perfectly. Haven't charged it at all since Friday afternoon, and that wasn't even a full charge, and now it's Sunday afternoon and I'm still at 32% battery. I've made a few calls, lots of texts, done plenty of web browsing and used apps for a good bit too.

    Is that 28hrs of use or 28hrs of Standby? If its use than your iphone is a BEAST!

    My last charge was Friday night and with moderate usage all day sat, today so far and NO charge SAT night, it's now 4:11 EST and my battery is 70%.

    My 3G would have been long since dead.

    Love the 4 battery!

    Wouldn't doing this kill all of my saved games, i.e. GTA and Angry Birds?

    I don't know how some of you guys are getting that good of battery life. Thats like 200% better according to some of your reports...

    I will say.. its much better than the 3g.. but I haven't seen numbers like that.

    Here is where my phone is right now:

    Usage: 3 Hours, 25 minutes
    Standby: 20 hours, 21 minutes
    45% battery life.

    I have done some video recording with the flash on it.. I messed around with that for a little while last night.. and then played a couple games.. did some facetime.. and other things here and there.

    IMO.. Where this phone blows away my 3G is after it gets below 30%. On the 3G, once you got near 30% or in the red.. you could forget about it lasting much longer. It was kind of like your car.. when it gets under a 1/4 of a tank.. it flies down.
