    I'm curious for 3GS users who did not do the upgrade to iOS4, what is your battery life like? Can you get through the day with heavy web usage (not video)?

    I updated to iOS4 and I have seen a better performance on my 3GS both with apps, battery, and all day usage. I can get a full day charge with TXT, personal email, work emails, and web browsing and a game of UNo here and there.

    I was curious myself and then I took the plunge and I really like how it made my 3GS react.

    I was going to hold out on updating to iOS4, but my Spirit jailbroken 3GS went loopy on me a week ago, so I just decided to go ahead and update to the new OS.

    My experience is that my battery life isn't as good with iOS4, but it's not horrible either. It's's that? :D

    I've actually been impressed with iOS4, to tell you the truth. I do miss some of my jailbroken apps like LockInfo and SBSettings, but I'm sure I'll jailbreak again when it's released for the new OS. I like the folders that Apple has implemented and the multitasking, while not being perfect, is a nice addition.

    Overall, I'm happy with iOS4.

    I had a 32GB 3GS that I upgraded and the battery life seemed a bit worse than when it was on 3.1.3. It still made it through the day but I hated that it didn't last as long as before so I sold it.

    I bought a new 8GB 3GS that has incredible battery life now. Sometimes I can get through two days on it. I've had this one a full week now.
