And now some good news, about nothing at all to do with signal bars and what not! Macworld reports today that the iPhone 4 really does have a longer battery life than previous models, at least according to their tests. Using an iPhone 4 and a year-old 32GB iPhone 3GS, Macworld compared how they performed on a series of different tasks, with their findings showing that the iPhone 4 battery lasts "an appreciably longer time."
After doing everything they could to drain the batteries, such as turning the brightness up as high as possible, downloading a movie over Wi-Fi, running Pandora at the same time as surfing the net, they found that after such rigorous testing, the iPhone 4's battery did indeed last approximately 1 hour longer than the 3GS, just as Apple had claimed.
They also ran another test using FaceTime and iMovie, capturing and viewing 25 minutes of HD video and making 34 minutes of FaceTime calls, and found that the iPhone 4 could keep going for 2 hours and 21 minutes. Interesting stuff.
