What kind of use are people getting out of their OneS batteries?

I've had my phone for just under a week and have run it through 3 or 4 full charge/discharge cycles.
Phone is running stock firmware. Last charge lasted ~36 hours with the screen using the most power.

I'd be interested to know what other people are seeing?

Mine was running nearly 48hours yesterday.
The Trick seems to be to deactivate the Option best WLAN Signal

Just got mine yesterday, could you let me know how to find the option best WLAN Signal? Is it the one in the Advanced Wi-Fi called "Best Wi-Fi performance"?

12-20 hours.
That includes about 2 hours of off-screen streaming while commuting, 8-10 hours WiFi on, 2-4 hours games and surfing, 10-15 minutes calls and a dozen or so messages.
My last charge was at about 25% after 16 hours, and usage pattern as described. Screen is on auto brightness and consuming about 60%.

That doesn't strike me as exceptionally bad but rather merely less than average. An hour of web browsing is going to use a lot of battery in itself. Do you use the Beats enhancements too when listening to music? Bet that drains some battery.

First charge and usage was; A few texts, 10-20 min of video, fair amount of browsing, installing lots of apps, tweaking and changing everything about, GPS, camera etc. and brightness was at 70-85% brightness for about 1-2 hours and dropped to 50% for the rest of the time, however, I didn't have my SIM in for the first hour of use (testing the mobile first to make sure it worked ok), wifi was on constantly as well.

Second charge and usage was; the same as above but a fair bit more browsing was done and a few games (angry birds and ROM emulators) and brightness was at 50% the entire time, plus this time the SIM was in for the entire time.
