Ok, I don't know if this has been done before, but I thought it might be a little fun since everyone is having battery drain problems with ios5. Let's see who can squeeze the most use out of their phone without charging. Here's the rules:
Must be an iPhone 4/ip4s using iOS5. No cheating! Lol

The last thing is we need to agree on a common percentage that we will snap a shot of usage. I'll say....10%
I'll go first....I've already been beat in another thread...but someone's gotta start !

My 4S was draining pretty quick and also wouldn't charge to the full 100% ... followed some advice from here on another thread, where I allowed the battery to drain all the way to zero, the phone shutdown and I plugged in the charger, it charged all the way to 100% and the run life is now a lot better. YMMV but worth a try as it costs nothing .. :)

Well I missed it at 10%, but it's close enough. This is all I could muster. I didn't really turn anything off and I only used wifi for a few hours. I used the phone a good bit. I just turned down the brightness to about 25% around the 20% battery mark. Maybe next go round I'll keep brightness low and turn off vibrate and not use the flash light as much.

Here is mine from last night!
FYI used iPod for 35 minutes everything else was Internet usage from FB, twitter, Skype, YouTube, 3 phone calls of 15 to 20 minutes each and multiple text messages. Was in 3G for about 2 hours as well. And playing Words with friends.

Mine never looks that good, I just chalked it up to being a very heavy phone user. Usually about 8 hours use and 14 standby.

That's not bad at all actually. Strange some users appear to only get 4 some hours, while others are getting double that.
I guess it really depends on usage.
