    Did this as a test a couple weeks ago to see how long it could go without a charge. My usage was like 1 phone call and some internet over wifi. I keep 3G off at all times unless I'm going to use it. This is also from an iphone 3G btw and not a 4.

    I was about to say your battery sucks, Then I realized that said 5 days and not hours. It's crazy how good the battery life is when you keep the usage down. Unfortunately I can never keep my usage down, Still a great battery though.

    These are so much better than I thought they'd be...most folks I knew who had it before (ip2..3) said it would not last more than 4 to 5 hrs..outstanding!
    Can't wait to get mine...

    In another thread I discussed my battery suddenly going dead about a week ago. Here's the stats this morning. This is based on pretty light use (reeder and Facebook). I'm going to replace. Just not confident it won't die again.

    I've been very impressed thus far (after 2 weeks). Comparing to my Evo it is night and day.... I actually had an extended battery (3500 mah) on my Evo, and the iphone actually compares better to that than the stock evo battery....

    Thanks! I'm just OCD about it because I came from the Incredible so i'm accustomed to staring at the battery gauge. I used it pretty heavily so I think I should be pleased
    ummm that's me right now i'm looking at my battery. >_<

    One thing that I am curious about for battery is whether or not the mobile me service is enabled. I do have it on right now but am thinking of trying to run with that off for a bit. Thoughts?

    I get anywhere from 5-7 hours of usage on a charge. That's with 3G on, wifi on, location on and push email for gmail. Screen is 50% brightness. I know by turning off 3G, push and wifi I can probably increase it by 2-3 hours.

    I didn't think you could turn 3G off like you can on the GSM. I used to do that on my AT&T iPhone 4 and run on EDGE only. But I was under the impression you couldn't turn on just the 3G radio and run on 1X.

    So I have only used my phone for about 2 hours today, but the standby time shown is WITHOUT plugging in all day. This is awesome. My evo could never do this, even with the huge extended battery.

    This is after my first full power cycle. Phone has been in use for 2 days.

    Wifi off, Bluetooth off, Gmail exchange activated with push, no location services active, FB alerts active.

    Browsing, texting, phone calls, games...hopefully it gets better with time...

    I just hate the fact that I need to be worried about my battery. I don't think it holds up per the Apple statements for usage. I don't know.

    What does their statement say about how long the battery should last?

    @coltsbr - how in the heck did you get over 10hrs of usage?!?! Thats awesome, you seriously have a great battery. What do you have your screen brightness set to?

    I thought that was pretty awesome myself.
    Here is a pic of my brightness setting. I got a lot better battery life once I turned off the Auto-brightness.

    Wow, you do keep the brightness down, I keep mine around 60% give or take. Thanks for the tip about Auto Brightness, I will try that going forward.
