    Far from it; forums are about discussion & debate

    On my iPhone 4S, I mainly use Email, iMessage and Twitter; that's it. Every so often I'll browse something on Safari, and I have location services off for Twitter. I simply don't use it.

    Nonetheless, last night I fully charged my iPhone 4S (iOS 5.1), so I'll continue to post images making sure to not connect it, like I did on the last image (*****, wasn't thinking)...

    Navi you may not like me after this but, 7 hours usage and 2 days standby yet still at 50% is not logical to me. i have a 4 and with that much usage and no apps running or location services on my phone wont last that long. granted i am on day 2 with 37% left but i have been on twitter the last hour. other than that i have been minimal on my usage

    Guys, can we have a poll added in order to help others like me to decide whether to upgrade to 5.1 merely for the battery issue.

    I have my battery showing 2% on the following stats:

    Time since last full charge
    Usage 5 Hours, 29 Minutes
    Standby 3 Days, 8 Hours

    Not that great, but I was driving through areas yesterday that had bad reception and my battery took a hit.

    After 1 day and a half, most over 3G or WiFi, it finally went dead. I gained almost half a day by upgrading to 5.1.

    [Edit] On a stock iPhone 4

    Battery statuses like this make me wonder what you guys are using your phones for. Definitely not gaming or video viewing of any kind.

    Anyway this is mine. It's not bad at all.

    I use my iPhone for:
    1. Email
    2. Text\iMessage
    3. Light Safari browsing
    4. Twitter

    ...in no particular order. I don't have time to listen to the likes of Pandora during the day, and certainly don't have time to watch videos and play music during the day either. I'm sure if I did, the battery life results would be different

    I had the battery drain issue, Apple told me to do a DFU restore, which i did, and haven't had any issues since. They told me since I updated OTA it downloaded a file with the size of 1xx.xx and the DFU file size is 8xx.xx so its the FULL update not just "necessary files".

    So I completely drained my battery and recharged overnight then reset my phone and my phones battery is ridiculously more stable. I didn't use my phone at all until about 2pm and I was at 100% from 6am - 2pm.

    I typically have lost 2-4% battery just sitting there doing nothing. So I was SHOCKED when I saw this.

    By 500p I was at 96% battery.

    Then I used my phone (Facebook, Twitter, WWF, Text, Reminders) while I shopped for 40 mintues 5-6pm.

    Then talked for 1.5 hours.

    My brightness is at 75%
    Push is turned off

    Now I am at 46% battery -I am really shocked, perhaps I always had a bad build?

    i had minimal usage, but as of late my battery has me baffled after i let it drain down, normally by bed time even with moderate usage it is down to 50 percent... doing a restore at this point.

    and have not had a chance to use hotspot yet because i was out sick today,
