iPhone battery test results

We have the talk time and video time lab results.

Apple iPhone CNET Networks

Immediately after we posted our Apple iPhone review, Senior Editor Donald Bell and I handed our iPhone off to CNET Labs for battery drain tests. And now we can report that our first results are in. Just to remind you, the iPhone has a rated battery life of 8 hours talk time, 24 hours of music playback, 7 hours of video playback, and 6 hours of Internet use.

Talk time: When we tested the iPhone with the Wi-Fi function turned off, we got about 7 hours, 20 minutes of talk time. When we tested it with the Wi-Fi activated, we came away with 4 hours less.

Video time: We were able to play 7.3 hours of video with the Wi-Fi function turned off.

Check back after Independence Day for the music playback time.
