    I'm curious if carrier has any impact on battery? I ask because I've had 2 iphone5 on att and they both had horrible batt life ,I couldn't even make it half way through the day! I recently opened a vzw account and my batt lasts a day and a half easy I'm a heavy user also, it could be that lte is a lot more mature on vzw in my area it smokes att on speed and it never leaves off lte where att was on and off lte about 50 percent if lucky but all in all very happy I changed

    yes. Also fringe reception areas from 3G/LTE will suck down battery life big time.
    Are you certain about this?

    Not to discount Navi...but it's simple to get battery life like that. Don't use your phone.

    1 day of standby and 4 hours of usage means you aren't on your phone constantly. When you don't use the phone or it sits around..the battery is great.

    It's the same way I get 7 days of standby on my iPad and 23 hours of usage. I use it...sit it down...and use it.

    Then what is the point of having an iPhone with minimal usage?
    I might had well get a wack phone that just receives and makes calls.
    This is my point. If you make a device with amazing features it should last you long. Not die on 5hours of usage.

    5-6 hours of usage is good. Most folks have other things going on and spread that 5 hours out over the course of a day. If you have time to burn through 5 hours of usage in a 6 hour period then you also have time to plug in and charge.

    My iPhone is showing 4 hours and 7 minutes of usage and 63% battery remaining. I've just done mainly browsing the web and checking emails all on wifi to get that usage. The battery life on the iPhone 5 seems pretty good to me. I've had one incident only when I lost 15% of the battery life in about 10 minutes whilst in standby and a quick restart of the phone fixed that issue.

    I'm rather confused here. The last time I checked the phone I'm literally typing this post from is mine. Hence the time spent on it is mine, just saying.

    Anyway as you all know everyone's use will be different. Me using my device for 4-5 hours is actually quite good. Normally it is around 2 hours. I work in I.T. and thus I'm glued to a computer all day. Maybe if that wasn't the case, I'd have more hours on my device use.

    I'll check my usage this weekend. Then again I use my iPad more on the weekends. Either way I will put this to the test.

    NW I think the point was that you folks shouldn't necessarily look at your battery life as a benchmark because your usage is light and to impress upon others that if you use it then the battery is gonna drain. It wasn't to knock your usage or discredit your posts in anyway.

    Usage is usage. That is why there are two numbers reported, usage and stand-by. Usage is when the the phone is operational, screen is on, music playing etc. I get 7-9 hours of usage. When I stream music for an hour or so I get more usage as I did in thus cycle.

    Try using LTE or 3G and see what happens. I'm thinking of changing my network. Maybe that could help battery kife

    This is what I got today. Shockingly. I'm so impressed. Never had this before.
    I was downloading a game using Wi if for over 2 hours( yeah slow Wi Fi) from 100% had 95% left.
    Pretty impressive.
    Then went to work.
    Surfed the web and played a lot of music. No games. Oped up this app and did casual texting. And this is what I have.
    First time
