I'd like to stay connected with either WiFi or 3G, but I definitely don't need immediate and constant Facebook updates through that App.
Like mentioned before, many things effect your battery life. Even with the screen off and you don't think its doing anything...it probably is. I imagine that iPhones gut anything when the screen is off. From using my itouch, I know the iPhone likes to stop background apps as soon as you hit the home button. Android permits more to run on the background. If you have autosync on, it may be pinging your 3g, so on and so forth. The iPhone works for you? Great! Glad it works for you. Just please don't try to paint all android devices with a broad brush because you didn't want to investigate why you had bad battery life. Makes me wonder if you do maintenance on your car, but I'm sure the iCar will come out soon.
