    It all depends on what you device is doing while on standby. It can vary depending on how opten it polls for email or social networking, etc.

    Standby times are always gonna be different. Notifications and alerts will change this.

    As an example, I have an iPhone 4, which is now perpetually in Airplane mode with Wifi turned on. It's at 66% or so after 12 days. I've used it for 1.5 hours to surf.


    Edit: some moron down-voted me for this post. WTF?

    Is 10 percent over night bad?

    In my experience, anywhere from 0.5% to 1% per hour is normal. I would say 10% overnight (assuming 8 hours) is a little on the high side.

    Why does the percentage it die overnight even matter? Is there no way for you to charge it at night?

    Anything from 0 upwards. Depends what you have running.

    1% for every hour?

    My phone is on WIFI/3G with no background app running...just lying on the pillow next to me waiting to ring that alarm in my face when morning comes, and I would still wake up with 98%-100%

    I usually charge it over night so I'm not sure.

    It's ridiculous people seem to down vote anything these days.
