After experiencing crappy battery life with the iPhone 3g, I had high hopes when I heard about the features of 2.1, namely battery life. So after an entire day of heavy usage ( more than usual for the purpose of the test ), here are my results.

Settings
-------------------------
I started out with full battery, and reset statistics.

I had brightness at around medium

3G on the entire time
except while watching a 50 minute video, where it was off

Downloaded 11 or 12 apps from the store, tested them all. ( all dl'd over 3g.)

Used the maps for like 15 minutes

Listened to 10 minutes of tunes.

Browsed the web 1 hour.

****NOTE*****Plugged in for a quick sync, less that 5 minutes, did not significantly affect battery life



and after all that, i still had 20% left


hope that helps!

Everyone is going to call BS on you because the sync lol. Try not to sync next time so it doesn't show that it has been plugged in
