Does this look like an ok battery usage? Seems to me my iPhone 4 was better! This is from my iPhone 4s.

It's not bad. Not great. I think six hours of usage on a full charge is great. You do have a lot of stand by by only about 10%.
Using wifi? What was the usage?

If it is a new i4S then when you finally get everything set up and stop PLAYING with Siri your battery life gets better. I know MANY people having this issue.
When I first wnent to iOS 5 my iPhone 4 eat battery bad, now that everything is set up and I have stopped exploring and playing my battery life has done great. Hope this isyour issue.

I installed ios5 on my iPhone 4 and the battery last the half than before, with ios 4... I already disabled push, iCloud, etc and it's still draining my battery. What else can I do? I hope Apple is going to launch an update soon..

I am getting 16-18 hours or so from my 4S... I have turned off iCloud, BT, Facetime, iMessage, and find my phone..

I have 3 email accounts, FB, Twitter, and Y Sports Spectacular that push... I am on wifi most of the time...

Overall I am very happy with battery life... The 1st 2 days were not so great but it's getting better with time...

My standby and Usage time runs neck and neck. I have a Genius appointment today. I want them to swap my phone out. This sucks and I'm noticing that my phone is keeping wrong time again. It's a minute slow.

Just a general comment. I think the battery will last longer with ios 5. With email/text messenging/other notices pop ups on the lock screen I can do a quick check and many times do not need to unlock the phone. Also I bike to work so knowing the weather is key. Now I just pull down the garage door (that's what a call it). No need to go into a different app.

This was my battery usage from this morning before heading to work. 50+ hours not bad at all.

At 17:46 it is at 31% now

Sorry the picture turned out BIG!
