    Default iPhone 4 battery life shortage
    I got the iPhone 4 on the 23rd of this month and right off the bat I noticed that my battery life was some what shorter then advertised. But anyway to make a
    Long story short I took a snap shot of my iPhone 4 and as you can see only used the iPhone for a little over 2 hrs and my battery life is down to 58%. All I did was check my email and had 2 calls.



    Also my battery drops down to 98% right off the bat when unplugged.

    I think I have bad battery. I have reset - restored - and after restoring I always select New iPhone. So I know it is a battery issue.

    That's what I thought. Made a appointment with Apple. Exchange time for new one.

    Can you post your screen shot of your usage and battery percentage.

    Also if anyone else can post their usage and battery percentage screen shot that would be great.

    Thanks

    Sounds like you've got a bad battery.

    I just took my phone off the charger, and reset my usage statistics. I'll post a screenshot tonight.

    Heading to Apple Store in few hours to get a New i4 not a refurb a New one in the retail box. This is crazy.

    My replacement seems to be doing allot better. Also what is funny is that my iPhone 3G that is running iOS4 is stilling showing 100% battery life and my iPhone 4 is down to 95% and both were charged and unplugged at the same time and both have been setting. I took the sim cards out of each phones so that it was based off of pure nothing but in rest mode.

    Iv noticed mine drops to about 50-60% after 2-3 hours of use. Also mines drops from 100 after about 20 mins. I'll try get some screenshots. May have to go to my local u2 for a swap if people keep reporting better usage.
