    So...I have a 1 week old, iPhone 4, and I'm having some battery questions.

    With about 3 apps with notifications, 3G on, wifi/bluetooth off, brightness at 50%, 1 Gmail account, 1 exchange, 1 aol and 1 mobile me account (new data is set to push, on ones that don't support push it's set to manual fetch) and with light calling (I made a call at 99%, and after the 4 minute call I was down to 96%), I'm at the following. Oh, light safari browsing, and of course Facebook....


    I'm wondering if this is okay? I've done a factory reset to a new phone already after finding crappy battery life with my 3gs backup. And I've discharged and calibrated the battery appropriately.

    Thanks!

    Yes, that's good. If you want to squeeze more life out of it drop the brightness down to 30% and set it to auto-brightness and turn off push as those are big battery drains.

    Edit: just checked mine (Which I know is a good battery as i had the 3Gs and my 4 is a lot better)

    62% Battery
    3 Hours 52 Minutes Usage
    10 Hours 30 Minutes Standby

    notifications

    May be a dumb question.....do the amount of apps you have using notifications affect battery life?
