I'm about the same as everyone else. I charged this morning to 100% at about 9am and have been listening to music through ipod all day with a few calls, some web surfing-non wifi, and a few apps. Now at 84%. By this time i'm usually at 30% getting ready to charge before the ride home. So far so good. If i get imporved battery life, the update was well worth it no matter what else it does.

I have noticed massive improvement over 3.0.
Since updating yesterday, my iPhone runs much cooler and is more responsive.
Before the update I would use between 40-60% of my battery every day - and to be honest, I was barely even using it - a few texts, some light surfing and about 2 hours listening to podcasts.
I have put it through its paces today by downloading a 200MB eBook via WiFi, surfing the iTunes store and the app store, making a few long calls and about 1 hour of the iPod. So far I have barely used 30% of my battery.
Paint me happy
Update: Forgot to mention... I'm not jailbroken - just a plain old iPhone 3G.

Much, much better for me. I use it primarily to make calls, light web browsing, and playing games (actually, it's my son who plays the games). Typically, that use would drop me to 50% or below in a day. Yesterday, after downloading 3.1, I unplugged from the charger at 6:00 am, made several calls, played some games, and did some light 3G surfing, then left it on standby overnight (unplugged), and at the moment (8:00 am) I am at 74%. Phone shows 1 hr 10 minutes of use and 1 day, 1 hour of standby time.

I look at it like this:
I am at 74%, which means I've used up 26% of the charge.
Apple says you get 300 hours of standby time -- so every 3 hours of standby time is approximately a 1% drop in battery life. Since I had 25 hours of standby time, that's a little more than 8% battery loss.
That means that for 1 hour and 10 minutes of actual usage time, I only used 18% of the battery. That translates into ~389 minutes of usage time, if I used it from the moment I disconnected it from the charger until the moment it died -- 6+ hours. That satisfies me!

Battery life is considerably worse since upgrading. Took my phone off the charger and in less than 3 hours it's dropped 8% with absolutely no use. Before upgrading it might drop 1 or 2% in that much time. What's up with this? Should have left it jailbroken with the 3.0.1!

I have noticed my battery life is about the same, maybe a little better, I have push on, wifi on all the time, surf, email, text all day, twitter checked about 1/hr, and I unplug at 8am-ish, and usually have about 30-40% at 10pm, when it goes back on the charger. 3GS-not jailbroken.
