    According to the specs, the iPhone 4S has 100 hours less standby time than the iPhone 4. ( the iPhone 4 has 50% more battery life in standby ). And after 2 months+ months, nothing much has changed in battery life?

    So I shouldn't hope on iOS 5.1 to fix the battery issues?

    The iPhone 4S has 200 hours of standby time. That means each day of standby it loses 12% of its battery life.

    The iPhone 4 has 300 hours of standby time. That means each day of standby it loses 8% of its battery life.

    4% difference isn't much at all when it comes to real world use...

    I know someone with a Verizon iPhone 4s that can go all day long (wake, to sleep). They unplugged at 5AM and came home at 8PM with about 50% left.

    Seems pretty good to me.

    Their browser loading speed was also really fast for only being 3G (compared to my 4G Galaxy Nexus). Loaded a video very quickly.

    I was really impressed. Can't wait for the next iteration.

    This would impress me too however I don't get these results but I can't complain, I do use my phone a lot and I have Sprint so I don't know if most of the time it's just struggling for good cell signal.

    200 hours of standby??

    Do you mean the device turned off, or lock screen?
