Ok so my phone has a issue i think,
I'm running ios 4.3.5 and after a full drain to the point where it turns itself off and i let it stay off for a few hours before i a/c charged it for 5 hours it's at 13% after not even a full days use, These are my stats:
Usage:4 hours 4 minutes
Standby: 12 hours 8 minutes
the only notifications on are:
location services are:
Just turned off location for bump ,westpac and video safe,my brightness is around the half way mark and i only turn wifi on when i get home at night. My email is on push as well. Does this sound about right or does it sound like it's draining a bit too fast??
Can maybe a few people just post the usage and standby times so i can get a idea of where everyone else is at please?
I have a Genius appointment this Sunday so i might mention something if people think there could be a issue.
thanks in advance.

I spot charge mine several times throughout the day (car charger here, wall plug there, etc), and I easily make it through a day. If I remember correctly the last time I went a whole day without charging it I was down below 10% by late evening.

Right now I'm sitting on 74% battery remaining...
Usage: 2 Hours, 7 Minutes
Standby: 13 Hours, 18 Minutes
So I've been on standby longer than you (just over an hour more), and have just under 2 hours less usage... and my battery has more remaining charge than yours by 74% to 13%... I can't imagine what I could do for 2 hours to use up 61% of total battery reserve...

I just glanced back through the thread but didn't see how old your phone is...
It could be a battery that's starting to go... but it could be other things... are you in a solid 3G area or a fringe area? What about wifi? Always on? Always ask to join networks? Bluetooth?
If your phone is constantly looking for a connection of one type or another, that will hit your battery HARD.
If you're still under warranty, it's worth a trip to the Apple store and see what they have to say...
Wifi only when I'm at home otherwise I turn it off. Solid 3G area. After a all night charge I'm at 45% with usage at 2h 40 mins and 7h 16 mins standby. My phone would be either 12 months old or just a little over.

I'd definitely take it in and have it looked at...

Just a quick update, my new iphone is currently on 43% battery after 37 hours on standby and 4 hours of usage, my old phone would be completely dead by now. The apple genius even checked my old phones battery and said it was coming up on screen as normal, I still persisted it was playing up and got a new one. Just goes to show even apple geniuses aren't alway right. I'm glad they replaced it and i now have a great phone again.
