    Hello guys,

    I've seen some threads about the battery life but I need to check about this specific situation... I got my new iPhone 2 days ago and since then all I see is that it last 2 days straight... I charged mine until 11am and been using the iPhone for calls, listen to music and sending emails... now is 10:08pm and the battery is less than half. I don't think it will last another day.... I just want to make sure if it's ok because I still have store warranty... If something is wrong I can go to the store and change it for a new one.

    Thanks guys!!!

    Battery Life

    I just got my iPhone a few days ago and I've been wondering the same thing with the battery life. To get it to last a full two days you have to turn off wifi, 3G, data push, location services, change the frequency of data fetching, and decrease the brightness. It also depends on the person and how much you use your phone. I know that I probably won't ever get two days out of mine because I use a lot of apps and just play with it.

    Realistically it will only last for a bit more than a day. I charge mine every night so I don't worry about. But battery life all depends on what you are doing with the phone, if you are listening to music and web browsing all the time the battery will be drained much quicker.
