There seems to be a perception that the battery life on the latest iphone 3G is extremeley poor. I was planning to put this phone on my shortlist to replace my Nokia in January but the potentially short time between re-charges gives me cause for concern.
Does anyone have any good experience on this matter ?
Cheers

obviously depends on usage but at the moment mine needs recharging every 30-35 hours.

my current usage currently involves testing some beta software, the kids watching a few episodes of charlie and Laughing Out Louda on iplayer, checking emails (both using wifi and 3g) and general messing about. i've not really used it for calls - so cant really comment on 'normal' usage!!
