    I think the image speaks for itself. What a great battery we have on this phone!

    Jobs really nailed it on the head when he said the iPhone 4's battery life would be drastically increased. After all, the battery IS the largest single component in the phone now. :cool:

    Last when I went 1 day and 12 hours of standby and 7 hours of usage. I was amazed. Love the battery.

    I assume there was some iPod usage in there?

    those numbers are not entirely accurate though. example mine is currently 3 hours 4 minutes usage, 9 hours 49 minutes standby. My phone has only been off the charger for 9 hours 49 minutes. the usage numbers would lead one to believe it has been off charger for 12 hours and 53 minutes.

    i will say its better than my 3gs, but not by a milestone

    Standby = total time the phone has been powered on since the last full charge

    Usage = time the phone is in use (iPod, screen on, or on a call)

    What settings you guys use? Like low brightness and turn things off?

    I have Wifi on all day, not matter if i have an active connection or not (which also made me realize how many Wifi Hotspots ATT has). Bluetooth is on 1/4 of the day for me. Brightness is set to auto dim.

    I agree, I'm getting better battery life than ny 3GS, but what I really, really want to know is, are people actually getting 9-12 hours of usage WITHOUT iPod use, which significantly skewes the numbers as iPod/music counts as normal use, but barely drains the battery.

    With no iPod use, I can get around 7 hours of fairly heavy use, 2 hours better than the 3GS, with an hour or 2 of music, I can show closer to 9 hours.

    I haven't used iPod and it's great. My phone line was broken for 2 days. I surfed the web and played games for 7 hours before I hit 10%. which for me is pretty damn good.

    For me, the battery is number 2 right behind the display. Great stuff!

    That’s what sucks when anyone posts these stats. They’re meaningless without telling us what they were actually doing for that usage, and for how long for each thing they did (unless you just like seeing big usage numbers). So far, I’m getting the rated use that Apple states on their website (10 hours of wifi, and 6 hours of 3G).

    Apple are very modest with their battery facts.

    Oh for the love of-

    Us Canadians need the iPhone 4 now! All this is making me jealous! Retina display, much improved battery life, A4 chip, 512MB of RAM, HD video recording, thinner, far superior GPS, support for faster upload speeds.

    Not fair! Us Canadians want it! :D

    That's great battery life though. Wow, I got about 5 hours max on my 3GS then it would need charging. 11 hours of usage! Damn!

    My iPhone usage is relatively light, but I had to charge my 3G and 3GS on a daily basis. With the iPhone 4, I can go 2-3 days before needing to charge it. It's freakin' awesome!

    so somehow you have 5 more hours of usage on 3g... highly doubtful.
    Maybe you watched some movies?
    iphone 4 battery numbers
    3G call- 7 hours
    3G web- 6 hours
    Music- 40 hours
    video - 10 hours.

    I don't have a screenshot of it, but I was at around:

    2 hours and 15 minutes of usage (7.5-8 hours of standby) with 73% battery remaining. All of that usage was 3G web browsing and texting.

    That's about average, right? I seem to be getting ~5-6 minutes of usage per percentage point when texting.

    I have not done the calibration thing yet, just started using it. So I imagine my meter may not be 100% accurate.

    Edit: brightness around 50%, auto on. One email account is push, one is hourly fetch. No location services, no wi-fi and no BT.

    Granted It does charge while I drive because the iPod plays through the car ;) But I haven't had to do a full overnight recharge like I used to do everyday with my 3G.
