iPhone 4 users, post your battery usage:

The iPhone 4 has the best battery life of any smartphone that I have had so far. I'm getting 7 hours of usage in a little under a 2 day period.  How about you guys, what is your battery life like?

 

 

Here is what I am seeing with my iPhone 4:

 

3G ON
WiFi ON
Bluetooth OFF
Location Services ON
Push Mail OFF, Fetch hourly ON.
Auto-Brightness ON, and set at 75%
My usage: Voice calls, messaging, Safari, iPod player,
Navigation, Weather & News, YouTube, Camera/Video, and email.

Though I did not take any SS of my phone, but I too have similar usage stats as yours, except that I have wi fi off push off and set manually, notification off and bt off. 20 min. Of calling dropped me 1%, so far this one is the best phone I've ever owned.

3G S - battery not so great, had to charge it up like during the middle of the day

3G- has better battery life than my 3G s did.

As long as the phone last me the entire day I am satisfiedSmiley Happy

I'm definitely getting better battery life with my iPhone 4.
The iPod player gets the most use, then Sirius/XM, Pandora, Safari, Facebook, Messaging, Yahoo Messenger, Kindle...often many at once. I often forget to charge it overnight and it's still good the next day.

I get better battery life too. Can go a 10 hrs day without the need to charge. I also just got a battery pack case from exogear which is slick looking and doubles the usage Smiley Happy

Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, I just hit 8 hours of usage in a one day and 23 hour period of time. Even my navigation App that I use doesn't kill the battery life that much.

Better than four or five hours on a 3G/3GS phone. Smiley Wink

 

I get about that much but lesser because I'm an abuser.

 * 3G/WiFi/LS/Mail Push - Always ON

 * Brightness - 100%

 * Lock Screen -  5 Minutes

 * 3D MMORPG Internet Games

 * Local 3D Games

 * Surf on RSS feeds, comic books, news articles for 2 hours on 3G Wireless

 * Watch a TV show or Movie

 * Although I'd say I keep all my previous apps running, I kill them all to save RAM memory

 

PS: I always have a wall charger ready for vacations and office use.

My usage is very similar, and I'm getting the same results. This battery rules!

Re: iPhone 4 users, post your battery usage:

Great topic. With 3G off, wifi off, location services off, no iPod, about 1-2 hours of phone calls, brightness at 30% with auto brightness, push notifications off, auto fetch email off - i can barely get through the day (morning 8 AM to 10 PM). Looks like I have a bad battery?

 

As for the "Usage" screenshot - what does that reflect? The talk time or the total time used on various applications listed?

Re: iPhone 4 users, post your battery usage:

The usage stats just show how much time you spent on your iPhone, the standby usage starts when you unplug your phone from the charger, even when your screen is off, the standby will continue to tick

This shows that I am a light user of the phone.  I can go over 5 days before I need to recharge!

Wow, I need to recharge nightly ...and sometimes it doesn't even last all day.  I'm a heavy gamer though, in addition to web browsing, email, ipod...
