I just wanted to know if this is pretty normal:

State on iPhone
3hours 41 minutes usage
5 hours standby


20% battery warning.

I was browsing the web for about less than 2 hours,
watching a 15 minute video,
Listening to music for 3+ hours,
taking over 60 pictures,
Wi-Fi On

ALL ABOVE is done within 3 hours and 41 minutes

My iPhone is 1 week old. I don't know if this is a factor but the iPhone i had is version 1.0. Should I return it to Apple to fix it?

Should I give Apple a call or is this pretty normal?

Are you saying your phone only lasts five hours if you're not doing anything with it or 5 hours standby plus all the other stuff you're listing?

I am at 20% after

At least 3 and a half hours of surfing (inlcuding about 30 minutes on Wifi)
a 10 minute video (The State)
I took 15 pics
I talked for 55 minutes once and then another couple 20 minute calls
checked e-mails 3 or 4 times and responded to one.
Plus about 7 hours of stand by time

The only thing I can recommend (that helped my battery a lot) was to make sure you have the brightness set as low as possible.
My brightness used to be set past the middle and my phone died a lot faster.

Yeah, that's abnormal. My iPhone did the standby thing for 5 days and lost less than 1/2 of it's battery power. I was in Mexico and put it on airplane mode tough (no transmitter). Otherwise I get about 2 days of average usage out of mine including standby. I watch about 3 hours of video a day on the commute (train) to work and surf the web about 30 minutes a day.

My battery life is not very consistent. I got 7 hours of usage and about 3 days of standby once but usually it ranges from 3.5 hrs to 5 hrs usage and less than 2 days standby.

Thing is I only used it to listen to music the most and I make a few phone calls left and right. I hardly surf the web for more than 5 mins or use WiFi or bluetooth. I'm not sure if it's normal or not but I am not pleased with the battery performance thus far...:(
