    Just wanted to see if those with iPhone 4 are having good battery life. My battery life is excellent. On my 3GS with moderate use, i.e. email, rss, facebook, ipod and texting I would be around 60% at this time of day 1:25pm EST. About the same use on the iPhone 4 and I am at 91%. Pretty sick. I was never one of those people that streamed music for a few hours a day but I would need to charge the 3GS at least once a day to make it til bedtime. Now I make it easily with about the same use. I even found myself over the weekend having enough battery life where I would charge it until the morning because I didn't want it to overcharge for 8+ hours when it didn't need it.

    Anyone else having great battery life?

    Is it really that much of an improvement?

    Surprisingly, yes. If anyone is having issues with the battery, they should go to the nearest Apple store because it could be a problem because the battery life is sick. It's currently 2:36pm EST and I've been having about the same use as with the 3GS and I'm at 81%. I would have been down in the 40s by now. I usually have to start charging up around 3pm. Not anymore. It's really a drastic improvement.

    I didn't pick one because battery life is actually better than my 3GS and not worse
    than I expected.

    I'm very surprised but yes, the battery is much better.

    Battery life is really, really great. It didn't beat my 9700, but that's expected since I have so many more features.

    If it beat a phone with a 360x480 2.44" non-touchscreen display with half the RAM and a much slower processor then thered be a BIG problem.

    Haha, you are right. And my 9700 was an AT&T Blackberry and it was unlocked to use T-Mobile back before I went to AT&T. So I didn't even have 3G!

    Battery life is good. I noticed that I've
    been going overnight without charging.

    Definitely what I expected, but I was
    only of only a few that knew A+ from
    Steve would include significant battery
    life.

    I don't have an option I can choose.

    "Excellent and as good as I expected"
    would be my choice.

    I can't believe how much of an improvement battery life is.

    Kills my Evo.. and I wasn't even one of the Evo users having bad battery life.

    I'm charging about every 30-35 hours.. literally getting a whole day and more out of one charge and thats with heavy usage.. insane.

    I'm getting a full day of heavy use which is all I ask for.
    I wouldn't call this battery life exceptional, but fair.

    Same battery life as my 9700.

    It trumps a Bold 9700, without a doubt.
