A Lifehacker reader wonders why his new iPhone 4S has poorer battery life than his old 3GS. My experience of iPhone batteries is that they take a couple of cycles before the meter is accurate but I don't have a iPhone 4S yet so I can't comment one way or the other. What about other iPhone 4S owners? What's the battery life like?
