I get about 3-5 min. talk time on 3G, can extend that to a good 10 min. on Edge, surfing the net on 3G, approx. 30 seconds, all in all, I'm pretty happy. :)

Just kidding, mostly, :) I'm still not getting a full day of moderate use, but I think that part of it is, as a new gadget that I can't resist tinkering with, it's getting more use than it will in a few weeks when the novelty wears off.

I do get almost a full day with what I guess is slightly more than normal use. Not too bad considering all it does, when it works that is. :)

I usually get about 8-10 hours usage with about two days standby. I have WiFi off, Push email on with Mobile Me, 3G off and bluetooth off. I mostly use the iPod, email and a few apps.

I have a 3G and I have EVERYTHING on.

I got: 2 hours & 50 minutes of usage
18 hours & 17 minutes of standby

I am at at around 20 percent of battery life (although I did not yet get the warning it's probably close to 20%).

my battery life is great. i stare at the app store quite a bit, listen to a lot of music, check 6 email accounts every 15 min, talk maybe 45 min a day, a lot of texting, and I don't put the phone on the charger until I go to bed (around midnight)

I haven't gotten the 20% warning yet....

9:00 AM-5:00 PM with heavy internet usage (surfing almost the entire time) on 3G before the iPhone died.

If you really want some hard data then here is a thread that has a ton of ppl posting their actual Usage SS. I have mine there on the last page.

I'm surprised how much usage I get after I let my battery drain to 10% and then do a full charge after that. The 2 times I've done that I've done a ton(I know the word a ton is subjective hehe) on my phone and got great usage out of my battery.

Have fun!

My experience is the same... otherwise it's definitely a daily charge with 3G turned off, minimal phone usage (have rollover minutes out the ass even with many expiring monthly), heavy internet and email usage.

Usage: 1 Hour, 23 Minutes
Standby: 11 Hours, 50 Minutes
Battery: @ 80%

Well, that battery percentage is just a guesstimate looking at the tiny icon. I think battery life is getting better. Yesterday I took it down to about 25%.
