Iphone battery life!!- IMPORTANT QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by kanderman / July 7, 2007 5:32 AM PDT

Can someone tell me if this is the expected battery life time for the iphone? When I click on settings I see that under time since last full charge it reads: standby 6hrs, 54 min and under usage it read 1hr 49min...and with that I now have slightly more than half of my battery this average for battery life? Is that enough info for someone to tell me so? Please help ASAP...

..could I respectfully ask that you stop starting threads with massive exclamation suggestive of a topic of world ending proportions, when in fact you have minor points or questions. People will answer you without the fanfare.

Many thanks

If battery life is important for you ...

why didn't you wait with buying your iPhone until it became clear from independent reviews and user experiences on forums like this or with how it behaved in this respect. The predictions were definitely worse than that of plain simple phone. But an iPhone, of course, isn't a plain simple phone. It's an Internet and music device.

Of course, the battery life depends on what you do with it. Especially WiFi uses a lot of power.

Kanderman, your post title is unnecessarily loud. How about 'Question re: iPhone battery life'? Regardless, this post shouldn't be in the BOL Lounge. It should be in the Cell Phones forum because, after all, the iPhone (despite whatever magical abilities it professes to have) is just that, another cell phone. Problems about it are diligently and rapidly addressed in the Cell Phones forum.
