    Yesterday I decided to run a battery test on my iPhone. Before unplugging it that morning I did the following:

    Turned off 3G
    Lowered the brightness a little (Around 30% bright)
    Turned off auto-brightness
    Turned off Push
    Turned off Wifi

    I had the following settings on during the rest of the day:

    Location Services
    Fetching hourly 2 emails <gmail and mobile me>)

    I used 3G for a total of 35 minutes to navigate some webpages then turned it off
    Listened to music for around a 1 hour in total
    Played Ocarina for around 25 minutes (with wifi on to transmit my playing skills:p)
    Talked on the Phone for around 1 and 1/2 hours (On Edge)
    Texted around 40 messages before reaching 10% message and here are my results:


    I just wish to know, is that good battery life or is it below average? Thanks for reading and for your comments:)

    On My iPhone, or my iPad?
    Seems to be fine. You have 6 hours of usage. Where did you find that AT&T world icon?

    That looks decent. I'm getting about 6:30 mins on my original iPhone.
    I think 6hrs is good for a phone like this thats so power hungry.

    The AT&T world icon is a jailbroken theme that can be found in cydia under att signal bars (made by bigboss and planet iphones)

    I left 3G and Location and WiFi on all-day and achieved 5 hours usage and 10 standby. I am happy with that as I made it through my day with 50% battery still remaining.
