iphone battery

I have a regular phone with over 48 hours battery life.
I don't know about smart phones, but I don't want one that lasts only 5 hours before running out.

well they've only annouced Talk time/video/web browsing and the 16hours of music.. they haven't released info on stand by time.

"Up to 16 hours of battery life refers to music playback. Up to 5 hours of battery life is based on H.264 1.5-Mbps video at 640-by-480 resolution combined with 128-Kbps audio. Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced. Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings. See for more information."

But that is not talk time?

In reply to: no stand by

But phone conversations/EDGE/WiFi may easily draw more power than video playback: this gives that we have no idea about actual phone talk time yet?
