I would be impressed with that battery life too, especially on LTE. However, in real-world use, I can't imagine that is the case. We will find out next week, I suppose, but I think the early reports will be the battery life is less than expected, mainly because people will be playing with the device more than usual. Also, I agree with the thickness is nothing to scoff at. Other than adding LTE and changing the form factor a little, it doesn't seem like too much of an improvement from the 4S. Sure it has an A6 Processor, but it has the same camera as the 4S, just thinner, has a new cord, to assist with making the device thinner, but, to me, it doesn't really sell me as a huge upgrade.
Having said that, I think it is a solid device, but I am in the same boat as NJBB.
