    I would certainly love to have it at 100% all the time, but frankly the battery is the one true weak part of the equation making up the iPhone. (Not that's it any worse than other smart-phones, but I really wish we'd see a leap in battery-performance).
    How much better can it get? Typical battery life for me is about 9 hours with brightness is about 75%. I use more data then voice, as talking on cell phone is not satisfying to me.

    I have mine at 100% all the time. I have to charge it more. I listen to music and ESPN radio at work on my iPhone but it sitting on a iPod speaker dock so I'm not sure how long my battery would last. I have a car charger in the car, so I've never really went a whole day without having my phone charging. I assume if I did with the brightness at 100% that my battery life would be horrible. I love my phone at 100%, I'm still amazed by the display 10 months later.

    I just leave mine at the stock setting. I need every once of battery juice i can get.

    I have to say that Apple seems to have done it again. I thought my battery was going to be toast after turning the brightness up. However even with 4.3 I was ending up charging at 80% or so which is a huge difference from the 60s I was getting previously with the brightness turned down.

    Sorry it took me a while to respond, but I have battery all day ... I'm in class most days but I still play on it. I charge my phone every night, no spot charging.

    Thanks to this thread I have now been using the phone with the brightness almost all the way up and I feel like I got a new phone. Wish I would have tried this long ago. The screen looks so much better!!!! Woohoo!!!

    Way to bright for me on 100%, I leave mine on the default setting with auto brightness on. Seem to be perfect for me.

    If you're in a well-lit room, then the screen being super bright looks awesome, but when it's dim in the room Or dark, it's WAY too bright for me.

    I've had an iPhone since the first one was released and I have always had my screen brightness to the max. I hate having to try to squint to see what's on the screen, it's especially hard to see when it's bright outside.
