    So far today:

    Usage: 1 hour, 19 minutes
    Standby: 8 hours, 31 minutes

    Battery life: 80%

    Coming from a 2 year old iPhone 3G, I am very happy with the battery life, especially standby battery time.

    Here's mine (iPhone 4), I tried to snap it at 1% but it died on me :D a grand total of 7 Hours and 12 Minutes....

    Note: It is all 3G browsing, Wifi browsing and about an hour and a half of music. About 20% i just kept playing youtube video's to drain the battery so I could cycle it, I reckon I could have got to 8 Hours + easily. :eek:

    Note 2: I have everything off and brightness around 30% (With auto-brightness)

    What are all your settings?

    3G on
    Wifi off
    Brightness was at full but I lowered it to mid level
    15 minutes push fetch email

    I do use my phone a lot, though. I make calls, send texts, and just mess around with it. So, when i see the other numbers, I do wonder if the difference in my stats is the phone taking the usage and just averaging it out.

    3D games, Safari and push/fetch are real battery killers so I think your ok. Best to cycle the battery though, maybe twice.

    Bad performance or heavy usage?

    I fully charged my phone last night and unplugged it at 9am this morning. 7 hours later, I've played about 3.5 hours of Angry Birds (with sound off) while the remaining time was spent browsing the web.

    I'm down to this normal?

    Your battery is fine, it's just the brightness being turned up all the way will kill it much faster.

    Even halfway can be a bit much. If your indoors and stuff, I would put the brightness on 30-35%. It's plenty bright that way.

    And fetch mail every 15 min uses battery as well. I have my fetch to "manual" and I push my mail. So I only get email maybe every hour or two.

    usage: 2 h 37 m
    standby: 8 h 13 m


    you guys should also reset your Cellular Network Data right when you unplug in the morning..that will show you more of a true indicator..because you cuold be on your phone for 5 min and download 20 meg of data, which will skew your battery life..

    5h 10m usage
    7h 22m standby

    36% left on battery. I've been using BeeJive almost all day and had a few phone calls and checked my Farmville occasionally. Much better than my previous 3GS for sure.

    Usage: 2 hours 12 minutes
    Standby: 15 hours 42 minutes
    Battery Remaining: 65%

    I'm extremely impressed with my iPhone 4s battery life, the battery life on my old 3GS absolutely blew and would only last about 12 hours on standby

    Don't need to cycle li-ions

    Just a heads up, you don't need to cycle a lithium-ion battery. 100%->0% and 0%->100% is really hard on it. To get the longest life out of your battery, charge to 80% and discharge to 20%. Li-Ions don't suffer from "memory loss" that nickle-cadmium batteries used to do. While it's obviously not easy to do this all the time, the more you stick to the 80-20 rule, the longer your phone will run in the long run.

    More info over at :D

    Usage 3h 14m
    Standby 4h 52m

    3G and wifi on, push notifications on, mail set to manual, location on, bluetooth off. Mostly using web, Beejive, Twitter, Facebook apps and browsing the app store. Fastest drains seem to be on downloading/installing new apps.
