I definitely got over 24 hours w/ moderate use.
One thing is is improved significantly, is standby.
I would go to sleep without putting my 3Gs on
the charge and keeping it in standby, I'd wake
up to about 97% or less battery, depending on
how many emails I get throughout the night.
I was at a bar last night, use twitter a few times,
facebook twice and some web browsing for
some scored and I was under 20 percent. I got
home, went to bed, received some emails and
answer two 2 minute calls this morning to find my
device hadn't even hit the 10% warning yet.
I believe battery life in general has improved to.
Normal use usually gets me around 11-14 hours.
On this device with moderate use, it was over 24
hours.... I believe it was more than 27 hours, but
I'm 100% that it was over a whole day.

Went to EPCOT yesterday. Started with a full battery. Lots of pics, lots of video. Lots of phone calls and texts to the family when we got separated or went on different rides. Lots of no service areas that drain battery fast, and I didn't remember to turn WiFi off until I'd been at the park for an hour. After a full day, the battery was only down to about 43%. I was stunned!

I am not seeing those kinds of numbers... I am still not getting through the day... but this is my first iPhone, so I am sure that I am playing with it constantly... hopefully once I have it all configured just right and add the necessary apps, the battery life will stabilize...

I've had my phone off the charger for about 14 hours now and am sitting at 16% battery... is that good? My point of reference is my BlackBerry 9700 - I could go 2 full days on a charge... I guess I just need to know what to expect, so I can manage those expectations...

Part of the issue is "breaking it in"... and then there's the new toy exploration phase, where you are constantly doing something on it because it's new...
My son-in-law did tell me early on that the battery life will suck, but it gets better... (his 3GS was likewise, horrible at first)... and he was right... it does get better.

I've had mine since launch and been using it in what I consider to be heavy use and I can't get this thing down any lower than 50% I've gone two days without charging it and it still only sat at 50% before I decided to charge it the battery on this phone is insane good.
