    That's pretty much what I have been getting with my new ViPhone 4, and I do just about the same. That works for me. I got about the same use as that out of my Droid X with the extended battery.

    i don't think it's BS, but the conditions to be able to get 38 hours is unrealistic for most.

    I charge my iphone everyday.

    If i will to used it intensively for gaming , it can last for at most 5-6 hours.

    But , if i will to adopt battery saver approach of using iphone ( i.e turning off my 3G service and using my phone purely for calling and smsing only ) ,

    The phone can last me 2 full days at least

    No you can't overcharge your battery. There is a feature in the battery to protect against that.

    Hey everyone, first post here. Just bought the VZW iPhone earlier this week and have been keeping a close eye on the battery. I came from the HTC Evo and had to use the extended 3500 mah battery to get acceptable battery life.

    I have been charging overnight, every night. Yesterday, I made sure that it stayed unplugged all day so I could give it a proper test. I unplugged at 9:00am, and used the phone moderate-heavily (at least for my standards) all day. I used the ipod, I watched some YouTube, I did a 3G skype video call with my wife, had several phone calls and plenty of texting/email. When I went to bed at about 1:00am my battery was at 23%. I am pretty sure I could have squeezed another couple of hours out of it, but realistically, I would never use my phone this much on an average day, and I would probably have plugged it in once or twice (in the car, at my desk etc).

    I have a fairly strong wireless signal most everywhere, but also use wifi for most of the day (at work and at home). I have push notifications turned on for some things, others I do not. Screen brightness is at around the middle of the slider with automatic brightness turned on.

    I am pretty confident that I won't have any issues with the battery life on this phone, seems perfectly acceptable to me, especially considering all the things I can do with this phone.

    actually i lost mine and insurance send me a new iphone 4 4 month ago,i was impressed the batter was lasting up to 4 days in stand by,and up to 2 low usage as i have a primary phone a galaxy SIII which lasted nothing,then i sent it to repair a stop turning on and then since the battery lasted few hours ,i purchase a battery and placed and still done 9 hours and i am 33% disappointed i am pretty sure they changed my good battery when they serviced and the replacement is maybe a bad badge of batteries from china it should last like before
