If i could only put my iphone down long enough to get some realistic numbers. Most of the time my usage is almost the same as my standby. But thankfully even unplugging it at 9 a.m and using it more than half of the time it has been unplugged (14 hours to 15 hours) it still last all day and into the early morning. I would like to see how much it gets if im not obsessively picking it up every 5 mins.

I unplugged at 7am. I have 69% battery. 2 hrs 6min usage and 5hrs 59 min standby. is that any good?? I didnt think i had dreadful battery life until i starting seeing some your posts in here! LoL
I did a restore yesterday and updated the software so today's the first day running that. Not noticing any changes. (I'm on the 4s)

When i first upgraded to 5.0.1 ots from my iphone, my batt life was yukko !! I did a restore as "new" and didnt use a previous back up. I just used the cloud for my contacts and calendar, and photo stream for my pix. then I usb'd to itunes and did a fresh sync of my apps & music. After all that, i drained my battery to zilch. What you see posted above is what i normally get. Now, when the weather is crappy here it does affect my signal and my battery will drain a little faster, which is to be expected dealing with incliment weather. Its a pattern i've had when i was on my bb, and now i see the same with my iPhone--so that doesnt worry me.
In addition to your battery drain, it also depends on what you have running as well. I dont use FB, twitter or anything like that. Honestly the only thing my iPhone is pulling is a fetch every hour for my 3 email accts. and my Fahrenheit weather app that updates hourly i think it is. I do keep location set to "on" and when i'm home--i'm hooked into wifi.
just to add, i'm no pro--all i can say is what i've posted has helped me to obtain great battery life. What worked for me may not work for another--everyone has their own way of doing things
wheeew!! sorry for the loooong winded post!!

I have wifi on at home all day. One email account that fetches every hour. Locations on for weather, heavy texting (now that the kids are home for the holidays that'll be cut way down lol) Facebook Twitter and Siri. Few phone calls each day. Now I'm at 3 hrs 27min usage 10 hrs 3 min standby and 49%. I will drain it down to nothing tonight since I don't have to worry about the kids needing to reach me - and I did restore as new and used iCloud for contacts and email backup. Then added the apps back in iTunes via USB.
Thanks for the tips. I'll see if it helps.

Unfortunately this is something I never got on my HTC Rezound. I only got 3 hours of use and sometimes less than 10 - 12 hours of standby time. Androids are great feature wise but they can't compete with the iPhone in terms of battery life.

I'd like to see what kind of battery life people, like myself, who are away from wi-fi most of the time are getting. I can get a whole weekend out of a charge because I am home an on wi-fi. During the week I am away from wi-fi from 4am till around 6pm and usually have about 50% left at that point.
Curious what others are getting on just 3G
