I recently jailbroke my iPhone4 and since then, I seem to not getting accurate usage time readings.
Standby time seems to be quite accurate, but there's NO WAY I've only used my phone for 1 hour and 29 mintes since yesterday. NO WAY!
I've played some games, I looked things up online, got my email pushed, read my twitter timeline all throughout the day and even read a frickin' ebook for at least 2 hours!
I didn't respring or anything, so this number just cannot be accurate.
Has anyone of you come across something like this before too?

hey all - i've been away for a bit, but keeping an eye on the iOS5.1 thread. I've decided for now to stay where my feet are dug into the sand on 5.0.1 I know what to expect with my performance and battery life. Yesterday i had 3days 12hr standby with 5h+ usage (i didn't take a ss of that) but heres where i'm at for today so far

3.5 days, Pink?! What are your secrets? Do you use Twitter or other social media? For me, social media apps seem to be the biggest drain, but I like social media apps so I don't see myself quitting those for the sake of battery life.

What i've also stopped doing is letting the battery drain till it shuts itself off(the once a mth cycle charge thing)--since i've stopped that, i've noticed a huge difference in my battery performance. I usually don't let my battery drain below 15-20% before i charge up either.
Yesterday witht the 3days/12hr SB, i was still at 18% when i decided to charge up.

So, just for the fock of it, 2 days ago when I charged my phone I switched off my wifi completely to see how my battery sb/usage would do on a strict 3G connection. Not too bad me thinks !! I think this is the first time my phone has not been connected to wifi at all lol. My usage here is all phone calls, tx/iMessage, email, wp dwlding & some safari/tapatalk use, with a smidgen of YouTube as well

ive heard too many mixed results with battery life on 5.1, so just for the sake of being able to delete individual photos from photo stream, i've decided to pass the upgrade for now, and i've deleted my photo stream anyway. A back up of the phone on iTunes backs up the camera roll as well.

This is my usage if I don't use my 3GS much. I just tweeted and texted during this usage stat. If I play any games, my battery life is horrendous.
Edit: I forgot to add that about 7.5 hours of this time was spent in airplane mode.

This is where I ended up last night - I actually let it run down till it shut off to do a cycle charge, something I haven't done since December !! Usage here was email, tx, imsg, camera, phone calls, iheartradio, and tapatalk/safari use.
