Oh yea and ViN, I have but a lowly iphone 4s, if you want line graphs with predictive features, hypotheses about the added/reduced battery life, multiple lines with usage statistics, data usage, phone usage, gaming usage then you will have to type it into your super duper Android device, I'm sure it can spit all those out for you... if it doesn't crash or use up all the battery first.
lol or you could just use Excel

And yes you need to shut off your WiFi. I wish there were an easy toggle for you to use like on my Android device. But I'm sure you can navigate through 2-3 menus.

Like some pimp said before, learn the iphone settings and get lucky. But I'm sure you can use your hand tonight

I can go to settings, wifi then turn it off. Not exactly hard with 3 screen taps total but I understand Android users get confused easier.

By the way I just hit 48 hours with 50% left on the battery. I think I'll stop there since that should give you enough info.

It only takes 1 screen tap on android to turn it off.

Yes I know. I have had both. I like ios software better and the iphone 4s hardware better than the crap I had before.
It's not like I haven't used both to compare them.

Yes you seem easily fooled, you have an Android phone afterall.

After being fooled into that Galaxy S crap it won't happen again for me.

I'm finding since going to 5.1 I only need to charge my iPhone4 every second day. Not bad.

Excited now that my iPad 3 is due tomorrow.

Yea it's nice having a smoothly operating phone now AND good battery life. I didn't think that was possible until I moved over to the iphone side.

Best part about this update, it even made the 3GS a lot quicker. Talk about supporting multiple generations of hardware! Unlike some Android partners
I never use BT so it's always off, Wifi is always on and I only use location services (GPS) when I need it (rarely). No need for toggles here, my battery does just fine and then some.

I haven't heard of any 3GS users and improvements around the net but that's pretty amazing. If it were Android, you would have to wait for someone to create a custom ROM, pray it works, go through multiple versions, pray some more and then deal with the issues that come along with it. No thanks. Tinkering ftl.
