    What's your usage like? Are you getting 8 hours of 3G browsing? Wifi browsing? Do you jump from page to page or read a page every so often?

    Is a portion of your usage music with the screen off?

    I do not think the current 4S would get though 8 hours of just the back light being on for the screen. Much less the CPU and radio sending and receiving data.:rolleyes:

    People have screened of their usage so unless they are charging it while using and claiming a screenshot of that then..

    I am getting a full work day, I leave at 0700 in the morning, and leave work around 4:00, get home 4:30 and usually have to get back on the charger by around 6 pm at around 25%.

    I access 4 email accounts but not PUSH, my work account sends me 20-100 per day.

    I play a few games, maybe some weather reports, Stock App, visit 1-3 websites for a minute or so.

    I have turned off everything I can as far as Reminders, and Notifications for stuff I barely use, and my Brightness is set at 25-30% about.

    I am on WiFi at home and all day at work, rarely use 3G at all except on weekends and if I go out after work, but I can usually Hijack a WiFi connection from somewhere, mostly in my area it is AT&T WiFi.

    My 4S is unplugged from 5 AM and by 4:30 is down to 58%. That is with fairly heavy use of 3G email access, some app use and calendar functions. About 30 minutes of actual calls during that time. This is connected to a push Exchange server as well as a few other emails, so it gets heavy activity.

    I have had no isues with life, in fact I think for my usage its superior to my iPhone 4.

    I have tarveled and made it from NY to CA, watching a movie, listening to the iPod, making calls, checking emails and had it down to 10% after 16 hours.

    My kids played Plantz vs. Zombies from start to finish one weekend for about 4 hours os nonstop game use and it was down to about 60% for what that is worth.

    My Phone right now:

    Usage: 2 hours 38 minutes
    Stand by: 16 hours 28 minutes

    Lots of calls. (30-40 short calls).
    100ish texts
    Stream Iheartradio for about 1 hour.
    1 Exchange server synced (30-40 emails).

    80% brightness roughly.
    Bluetooth always on.

    Not bad IMHO. I can get a solid 8-10 hours off charger with heavy heavy usage. This was a light day and i had 50%. Not bad IMHO

    Recently upgraded from 3gs to 4gs. Battery life in the 4gs lasts half as long or less than my 2.5 year old 3gs did. I get maybe one full day out of 4gs and my usage habits haven't changed.

    Battery depletes much faster at home where I am on WiFi. Work does not permit WiFi. In iTunes I have Sync over WiFi checked (which is nice) but believe it could be the culprit to my battery woes.

    Still researching.....
