    So I woke up this morning with 79% left.. This was at 6:30am.. As I write this, it's 8:02pm an I'm at 17%.. I played about 2hrs of defender chronicles, read a bunch of emails, I have 3 push accounts, ones exchange and I am a bes admin with an active project.. Averaging 300 emails a day..and wrote about 20 SMS, and I've been browsing this site for an hour, along with 2 20 min phone calls..Anyone else getting great battery life?

    go to settings/general/usage

    you can take a screenshot of your usage and standby

    OP, I beat my phone to death and still haven't gotten the 20% red warning since launch day.

    My battery is [email protected]

    Battery life has been great for me. I have about 30 apps installed and keep several running in the background most of the day. I usually charge my phone around 11PM and I generally have about 15-20% left.

    Streaming Pandora would be the only exception, that app can kill my battery in 5hrs flat.

    Yeah..I have it all organized.. the first 3 pages are all games that I've purchased..

    I've spent probably $200 bucks on apps.

    Throw in 159 songs, 7 movies(full feature length movies), 317 photos..

    Could be why it took 9 hours to restore my iPhone 3G data to my 3GS? LOL!

    Agreed the battery life is very good! I had to really try to drain it when I wanted to cycle it. Because it just seems to last forever I had to like log onto AOL and play YouTube at the same time, apple did a great job.

    You must be kidding, my Curve runs for days without me recharging it. It has the best battery life I have ever seen on a smartphone.

    I'm on my third day of conditioning my 3gs battery and it's getting better and better unless I'm just imagining it. If it is a problem I guess I'll see about getting the juice pack air.

    Out of curiosity, does fluctuation of use mess up the length it could have in the long run? I.e if u beat the crapola out of the battery for the first few weeks and then over time u start to use it more moderately, will that harm the potential battery life?
