    What is your battery usage percentage? Display is the one that is using the most battery. I left home around 520 this morning, did some surfing on the bus for about 30 minutes or so and had the Iheartradio on for about 1 hour. Right now my battery is at 79% where 70% of those are used by display, Cell standby, phone idle, android system and other are only around 6-8% at most.

    It seems the battery drain pretty fast, I had the same problem with my IPHONE3GS when i first got it, I would be dead in the water after 5-6 hour usage, however after 2-3 month of use, the battery on IPHONE seems improved and it usually lasted about 10-12 hour of normal usage, including web surfing, texting, and keep all the smart function on.

    What is your screen brightness set to? Is it set to "Auto"? You should disable that and then lower the brightness. That should help a ton.

    That's pretty high in terms of brightness. Usually 10-15% is sufficient unless you are in extreme lighting conditions. Drop it down and itll definitely help.
