    Alot of people I see are getting really worried about the standby battery life:

    "ZOMG the standby battery life dropped from 300 hours on the iPhone 4 to only 200 hours on the iPhone 4s!!! That is a 50% drop in battery life! My phone is in standby alot of the time and will drain like crazy now! :eek:"

    To which I say: Do the math ;)

    Lets use the new 200 hour standby battery life calculation for this as well:

    100% battery life

    ---Divided by---

    200 hours of total standby

    A loss of 0.5% per hour while in standby(and in 200 hours it will be drained)... Compared to a loss of 0.33% per hour with an iPhone 4 while in standby

    So now lets calculate it for a regular day

    16 hours working (since hopefully you sleep 8 hours a day ;))


    0.5% standby battery loss per hour

    A loss of 8% while on standby for the entire day... Compared to a loss of 5.5% on your iPhone 4 *Gasp* :eek:

    So an extra 2.5% loss in standby battery life per day... and why are you freaking out again? :p

    Doesn't seem that big a deal anymore now does it? ;)
