100% at 10 am yesterday. A couple of emails, a few phone calls, texts and emails, some Fruit Ninja and an hour or so of video and I'm at 27% right now. I'm pretty happy with that after 36 hours....

Bluetooth, 3G and wifi all on too.

Lol you can't compare a 3GS to a Retina screen

To me, the 3GS is so blurry...I have no idea how I ever used that thing

Mine was bad at first

I've had it drain to 0 then back to 100% 3 times now and have noticed an improvement

My last iPhone was the old 3G, and between then and now I've been running a Blackberry, so this is a huge step up in hardware. You guys are right though, the battery sucks on this thing. I also noticed that bluetooth was turned on by default, and that drains the battery a lot too.

Now I need a good case, because Im not sure if Im liking this one I got today from Best Buy.
Why did it take so long for you to get your phone?

Somewhat true. Since I got the iPad2, I use it instead when I would have used the iPhone previously. Even with a claimed 10 hour life on the iPad2, I have to charge it every night.....

I did use the 3GS more because it was jail broken and I ran MyWi 4.0 to serve the iPad via wifi hotspot. Don't have that option yet on the 4S....

The battery life has something to do with iOS5.


I've had my iPhone 4 since it came out and the battery has been very good to me.

Ever since I downloaded the iOS5, I've noticed a significant decrease in my battery usage time. It seems like slight decrease in efficiency if I could throw a number out there.

I don't mind because it stays charged for me all day.

Well, when you add new features...it uses more battery life

I don't understand why this is shocking

battery life has always decreased with a new OS update

Remember iOS 4.3?

turn off notifications and you will increase battery life
turn off Ping etc and it'll also improve battery life

I was sent an email with a .docx attachment. I have no idea how to open it. I downloaded Documents 2 and FileApp thinking they would work and I get nothing. Any suggestions?

And when you play music out of the speakers built into the iPhone, does only the right one work?

To anyone who thinks the iPhone 4s battery (hardware) is a step down from the iPhone 4:

The iPhone 4S battery actually has a slightly greater capacity than the iPhone 4 battery.

It's the increased RAM of the 4S, along with the introduction of more background processes that is draining the battery more quickly.

ZJP provided a useful link, above, with good suggestions for preserving or extending battery life. Certainly turning off bluetooth is a big one. If you don't use bluetooth regularly, why not turn it off? Otherwise, the phone is constantly, unnecessarily searching for a device to connect to.

Another HUGE factor in battery life is screen brightness. If you don't need the screen to be at 100% brightness, turn it down to 50% or 60%, and you'll notice a big difference.

I've found that only in direct sunlight have I needed 100% brightness.

Could be a iOS5 compatibly issue, otherwise, could just be because of an update.

Don't they give you like 30 days to return it and get another phone? Anyways, I've played around with the SGS2 and that is a definite improvement over my old ass 3g iPhone.
