As us new iPhone 3G users get our new phones, we are subject (to like any expensive product we buy) to analyze it, and if something is wrong, we lose sleep over it (yes that is the case for some people). Overtime, as you get used to the iPhone, all the little things will be forgotten about, or dimmered down compared to what they are now. Just something to keep in mind. I currently have 3 iPhones in the house, 2 of them are the iPhone 3G. Due to all the poor battery comments, i decided to see how exactly the batterys last, and how it does compared to a 1st gen iPhone. The iPhones in use: 3G iPhone 16GB White, Charged and Discharged 2 times. 3G iPhone 8GB Black, Charged and Discharged 2 times. iPhone 1st gen 4GB (using 1.1.4), Had it since November (8 months). Now, since the majority of us who upgraded to the new iPhone had the first iPhone, the first gen iPhone battery life obviously doesn't keep it's charges as well as a new iPhone. The EDGE iPhone is not going to last as long because it constantly has to download from the network, at least 3G downloads it quicker, and the fact that the EDGE iPhone has been used for a while now. The White iPhone is used for 3G. The black iPhone is used for GPS (with WiFi on), and the 1st gen iPhone is used for EDGE. (In order of pictures bellow, but you can tell by looking at them) -The 3G iPhone (Top Image) had wireless turned off, GPS iPhone WiFi turned on, EDGE WiFi turned off. -All the iPhones have Push set to automatic. -All the iPhones have a screen brightness of 50%. -All iPhones have location services turned on. -All the iPhones had there sound turned off. The file is a music file hosted on my website. It's exactly 1 hour in length, and the file size is 54.3MB. I started the song loading right at the beginning of the timing. The iPhone 3G will have the song completed sooner because it starts playing right away, while the EDGE iPhone takes a little bit to load it first. For the record, the iPhone 3G loaded the song in about 1/2 - 2/3 quicker than the EDGE iPhone. This comparison is fair because even though the EDGE phone is downloading longer than the 3G iPhone, and the 3G iPhone is just playing the song while the EDGE iPhone is downloading this. If we were to be out and about using our iPhones, this would be the same amount of load time and use time. So keep that in mind. (Note that the EDGE iPhone isn't displaying it's usage correctly because i just unlocked/activated it, which i believe is a bug) Now, for pictures. Note: Also, if you would like me to compare different things like push, just ask! Each picture has the 3G iPhone on top, GPS in middle (WITH WiFi TURNED ON), and EDGE on bottom. The point is to compare the battery icons. (Click images to make bigger) Both GPS / EDGE gave me the 20% warning at about 2:45 GPS / EDGE died at about 3:45 3G died at about 4:45 So in reality, what we get, is actually a better battery life because while using 3G we can be more productive. With our EDGE iPhones, it took longer to use Safari on the go, and since all the 1st gen iPhones are becoming older, they are losing charge.
