    I have great battery life too. I mainly use Wifi when I am at the office or home. But when on the road I use 3G. I am using the heck out of my phone probably 8 hours of use with 14 to 18 hours of standby time and still having a tad bit under 50% of battery life. .
    we have to see a screen of that, because that would mean your getting double what the rest of us are getting. And some more info on settings, brightness, sound on/off ect. I would like to do it your way if thats what your getting.

    Duvi - come fix my i4!!!! hehe Not going to repeat my setting again, I think they're in my last post on this thread. The one thing I have not done, is let it run completely out and then recharge from there. Thats my next step. I'm trying so hard to get my battery life up!!

    Okay here is my latest screen capture that I did in the wee hours of the AM when I got home.

    Brightness is default, no vibrate, several push notifications, no push email, sound is on and in fact I stream music several hours a day as evident by my usage. I send lots of text messages and run IM+ or Trillian IM constantly. I am running on 3G network, but mainly use Wifi because I have access at home, work and many other places I go. I also use email via Google Sync, along with my calendar and contacts syncing. Again I use fetch for email one time an hour, and I don't use push email. I stream Pandora or Slacker almost constantly. I also don't use Bluetooth, so it is off. Location Service is off and I only turn it on when needed. I also have my Wifi set not to search out new connections.

    Just as an update, I did a full restore on mine and set it up as a new phone and my battery life is just as bad.

    My screen shot is at twitgoo.com/17rg3q

    I'm going to pay a visit to my local Apple Store to see if they can add any insight to my situation or give me a new phone. After two weeks of scouring the interwebs for similar stories, I can say that although there are others experiencing poor battery life, the overwhelming consensus on the battery in the iPhone 4 is positive. Hopefully, I can get in on some of that Apple magic soon. (-:

    I heard that the iPhone 4 battery life is waaayyyyyy better thn the 3gs. I always carry a charger with me so the 3gs battery life doesn't effect me.

    @Alli I just listened to your podcast, it was great, and to the last question about my post it sounded like your cousins husband* thought the screen shots were projected figures not usage after the fact. Because his example of the car shows what it thinks your gonna get, the odometer whould show what you got. The info he gave was great i just think he was under the impression that the screenshot were guesses not actual usage.

    I think the only real variance to all this is probably our talk times. Lets face it using these phones on 3G uses up battery pretty good. I guess the only other thing folks could compare is their talk time from day to day. I probably talk in total less than an hour a day on my phone. The rest is email, texting, sending IM's etc. So it my estimation those that aren't getting the life I am are probably talking a lot more than I am.

    You can see from my screens that i may talk on my i4 maybe 20min if that in a day. The only way i could see getting your numbers compaired to the rest of ours is like turning everything down and off the using only the ipod on it. I for one am happy with the battery life im getting and would only trade it for yours lol

    The battery life depends mostly on your apply of apps, I leave it quite for the most part of time, the result is that 3 days passed, the battery record indicates 90% of the total.

    I don't know if this was said or not, but could how much free space you have on ur hard drive affect battery life? I have a ton of music and only have about 4gb left on my 32 gb i4. I average about 5-6 hours usage with heavy usage ( i think 7 hours was my max).

    my usuage, with 3g on all day, 50 percent brightness, and push email. is this normal/average or do you think I should go into the apple store and get it tested?

    I'm convinced about one thing. Let me explain. I jailbroke my ip4 then decided against it, after my battery life immediately started to exhibit increased drain. So I restored from backup. Since restoring from backup my battery life has continued to drain faster then anytime prior to jb/restore. Only time it seemed to operate better, was when my ip4 was setup as a new phone. There is some connection between restoring backups and reduced battery life. I had the same weird connection on my 3GS.

    maybe but i roll with like 5g left on my 32g and i just pulled 9.2h yesterday. i was podcasting, trueshuffling, gaming, and arranging my apps only thing was i was on wifi all day so i think it was adding two hours. i would have made 10h but at 9.2h i forgot and sat it on my ihome to blast some music forgetting that it charges lol i had 12% left. but with 5-6 h i think its just that your brightness is like 60% or higher. lets us know.
