    Default How is your iPhone 5 battery life?

    Mine was horrible but I turned off location on a number of apps that didn't need it in the first place and it is much much better

    No, only when I'm home, from about 18:30 onward. The WIFI at work is terrible, hence I don't connect to it.

    You know what I like...how substantial of a charge you can get just being plugged in to AC for 1/2 an hour. I'll often plug in, set the timer on my phone for 30 mins and get enough charge to last for HOURS!!

    You can get 40-50% back in 30 mins even if you use it some while charging

    I almost never use location, mainly only use it for weather and maps, on wifi a lot and my phone lasts the day, everyday. Even when I'm on it a lot beta testing a new version of an app. iPhone's have had the best battery life for me since before BlackBerry went to a smaller battery.

    Funny thing is, until I switched to Android a couple years ago I was never so consumed with battery life. Lol

    I didn't care about it either until I had used some android devices as well. Android destroys battery life, maybe Google will fix that at some point.

    Default Re: How is your iPhone 5 battery life?

    I have no idea how I get the battery life that I do. I charge it fully when it is in the 10-20% area. I use it for music virtually all day at work. I check and write tweets on two accounts from it, during the day. I take and make a few calls. I try to make the calling part a LITTLE as possible. But, besides listening to music the bulk of my use is email and text\iMessage.

    Best I can say is your constantly on Wifi where your phone takes less of a toll and your mostly inside at work where not much high brightness is needed.

    I wish there was an app or something to show what apps etc. I have used in the past twenty four hours or so. Just to show evidence that I do use my device. Some others think I don't.

    Was trying to wait for the 20% notification but alas... I'm upstairs about to turn in for the night.

    LOL - did you finally go to bed?

    Any reason you don't use the battery percentage?

    That is rather good battery life. I'm sure it helps that am mostly in very good network coverage, both for 4G and LTE.

    Yeah I passed out. Lol

    I don't use the percentage because, despite the great battery life, I hate seeing the percentage change as I'm using my phone. The 20% notification is enough for me. Then I know I can plug it in for 30 mins and get back to 60 or 70 percent so...

    Default Re: How is your iPhone 5 battery life?

    My Iphone 5 battery sucks. I hardly get like 3 hrs 30 min of usage when on 3G. My battery drops 1% every 2 mins of usage. That's like 30% of draining every hour on 3G. On Wifi and 2G I see a drop of 1 % every 4 minutes. I had Iphone 4 and 4s before this and felt Iphone 5 battery was worse. But after reading this forum and consulting with my friends using Iphone 5 , I feel its only my phone . Below is my stats

    Standy 10 hrs 20 mins
    Usage 3 Hours 40 mins on 3G. (Browsing,Facebook, gtalk, imessages) only browsing
    Usage 6 Hours 33 mins on Wifi (Browsing,Facebook, gtalk, imessages)

    I have all the settings set to off like Locations settings, Push settings, Notification to min, Auto Brightness set to min, No videos streaming, No music.I have tried resetting as New Phone. Copuple of power cycles. But nothing has changed.

    I have return my phone to Service Center for testing. But I need to know if this normal or there is something wrong with my phone.I would appreciate if someone could let me know if above stats is normal.

    Thanks
