    The iLounge report states they got 8.5 hours of wifi usage. Does anyone have any idea what settings they had? It could play a big role.

    I'm testing out my phone for nonstop wifi usage. According to iLounge we should get 5 mins per 1% of battery..

    I don't think I'm getting anywhere near that even with minimal options.

    Doing what on WiFi? Just connected, or screen on browsing Web sites for 8.5 hours?

    Depending on what you're doing, I could see being attached to WiFi giving more battery life than not being attached (e.g. if you have push email in a weak cell area, the cell connection might consume more power than wifi)

    They didn't give too much info

    All I know is they stated that they got six hours on 3G and I only get three hours. Then again I'm in a bad area at work so that could contribute to the drain.

    So instead I'm testing wifi. But as I stated by their results you would need to get about 5 mins out of 1%. With minimalistic settings I'm getting about 3.5-4 mins per percent.

    But, if they are getting 8 hours with max brightness, cloud, etc then my battery is really not that great.
