iPhone 4s users, what is your average battery life?

I keep reading that it is terrible, but the only actual estimate I've ever heard was from what I would refer to as a super-user, and he put it at about 3.5-4 hours on standby (granted, he gets significantly more e-mail/text/reminders than anyone I've ever met).

How long, about, does yours last?

And (without turning this into a pissing match, but I guess it is that time of the week again) what other PDA/smartphones have similar functionality with better battery life? I'm usually out and about a lot, but I'm on call for work fairly often, too.

I think if you turn off location service it helps a bit. Mine usually lasts all day and has every day since the update came out to help. I usually keep e brightness at about a 1/4 as well.

Still feel like it could generally be a little better though.

3GS here with new software.

Constant use an I can get a solid 7-8 hours.

Minimal use and on standby I'm good for 12-13 hours.

I just got back from Walt Disney World. I would fully charge every night and then use it during the day for taking pictures, checking email, texting and several Facebook updates per day. So, with all of that, it would knock the battery down to 10-20% typically. Charge it up while sleeping and I was good to go the next day.

After the new update that fixed the battery life issue in iOS5, my 4s has been depleting its charge at a rate of about 10% every 3 hours.

Mine typically lasts from about 7-8 hours with constant use. Much better than my 3G used to be.

Update your phone again, there is a fix for the battery life issue that came out a few days ago.

I'm going from and old not updated (since one of the os3's) to this phone. What do I need to make sure I have turned off/down to save battery?

I can charge mine up at night and it usually lasts all day. Longer than the 4. It seems like the battery drains fasts overnight for some reason. Apple is working on updates to improve battery life so maybe that will help!

What are you referring to as stand by?

And is a car charger more of a quick charge versus in home charger?

Mine varies but I charge overnight at home then whenever I get back in my car I plug it in during the day.
