    Interesting. There are a lot of variations in battery life. Some people can get 7+ hours, and some, like yourself, get less than 5 hours.

    What are some other settings you use? Do you use max brightness and Bluetooth all the time or something?
    If I don't play any games I can get about 7 hours of usage with 30 hours of standby with 3G only.

    That's pretty good battery life. Isn't that the same amount of hours Apple says it will get?

    Impressive!
    16h a week is not impressive, that is 16h / 7d = 2h30mn per day when on cellular data. 24h per week when over wifi is less than 4h a day. I'm certain he have features turned on in the phone.
    The thing is, the more powerful processors will become, the more power they will require to run powerful features specially if those features are not on demand but 24h/7d enable. And look at Apple pushing to the limit of paper weight size phone. I wonder who told Apple that I need the slimmest phone on the planet. Things could be easy to handle if it was only about battery and processor, but now that slim is in the equation, I just cross fingers to be wrong, so that I will not be worrying about what features to turn in other to save battery life and more importantly, to stop worrying about my battery dying at 3pm of the day.

    I'm gonna venture out on a limb that she is referring to hours per day, during the week, and not hours per week.

    I'm totally with you on the the thinness of the phone vs thicker, higher capacity battery. I don't get their emphasis on phone thinness either.

    Seriously. We need a bigger battery, not an obsession with thin!
