That said - I do get the feeling that iPhones have slightly better battery life than Android phones (no idea about Windows or BB devices - but who cares about them!)...
For myself, the ability to replace a battery far out weighs any battery life advantage an iPhone may have
Some of the newer droids dont allow you to pull the battery. There are design advantages to having the battery built in. It was never an issue with me. My last htc had a built in battery.
I sell my idevices every 2-3 years ( they hold their value better than any phone i have owned) and it pays for my next one. Due to this, i have never had a battery issue so far.
Ios is a very efficient os. I do think it helps with battery. There is a price to be paid with too much freedom in the world of tech.
