PC World conducted a very interesting test on the iPhone 3G's battery compared to other smartphones on the market today. The results are below.

"PC World's Test Center ran it through their standard talk-time battery life test, and found that on average it ran 5 hours, 38 minutes, a running time that they considered earned a Fair rating."



Of other handsets that support AT&T's HSDPA/UMTS network, only the HTC Touch Dual came close, with an average talk time of 5 hours, 18 minutes. The AT&T Tilt pooped out at 4 hours, 47 minutes, trailed by
the Pantech Duo at 4:46;
the Motorola Q9 Global at 4:43;
and the Palm Treo 750 at an abysmal 3:53.

The iPhone 3G also beat out competitors on Sprint and Verizon's EVDO mobile broadband networks, including the Palm Centro (4:19) and the Samsung Instinct (5:33).

Verizons' Dare is missing from that list

The Dare isn't a smartphone; It's running a modified version of the operating system seen on Verizon's LG Voyager, with a lot of fun features.
