    I have had mixed results with the iphone 4s battery life,

    These are my current settings: 3G always off unless I need to manually use the internet,

    Notification center: Weather, Phone, Messages, Reminders, Calendar, Google Voice, Mail

    Location: Camera, Maps, Reminders (no use since i leave 3g off), Siri, and Weather

    I have 2 email accounts that i set to fetch hourly (no Push), Facebook push is off, I've done the time zone settings that improves battery life, Brightness is low

    I am usually connected to Wifi and here is the battery life I get:

    I am at 2% remaining with:

    Usage: 7 Hours, 44 Minutes
    Standby: 1 Day, 16 Hours

    I practically have to turn off everything as shown above to get it to last a day and a half, but with 3G on, I'd probably get a day's use at Max,

    Is this what everyone gets from an iPhone or there is something wrong?

    Your usage time isn't bad, but at the same time you are turning off 3G just to get a day and a half. Is there a reason why you can't charge the phone daily?

    That's about normal. With everything enabled (push, notifications, etc) I never get more than 7 hours on my 4, unless I listen to music with the screen off.
