    I can now consistently get 9+ hours of usage time and 24+ hours between charges. I am very very impressed with this phone. It is better than what I got on my iPhone 4.

    those of you that use your camera a lot do you have all photo apps setup so they have LOCATION SERVICES on?

    As if not then the apps don't have the ability to put complete (and in some cases any info at all) EXIF data in the pics. I mention this as iPhoneograhy has taken off big time. But anyone reading this knows this too. I always schleped my Nikon full frame D700 around along with my Nikkor pro lens 24-70 fr2.4 and 70-200VR2 f2.4. I must say for the everyday shoot whipping my iPhone5 out of my pocket and catching a good shot is great and a h#ll of a lot less weight . That said the EXIF data is very important as it tells all settings that many are interrested


    Those that do use iphone camera apps will usually have about 5.
    2 or 3 for post processing and the always handy Camera+. Photoshop Express, Instagram. now you add the social media apps like facebook/twitter.... who don't want to left behind so intergrated stills and video... both of which don't use full capabilities of hardware and compress/pics and videos.

    So as I try to save on battery usage I am also in a delema as having a setting off only to try to remember going thru settings to turn something on for that one quick picture is out of the question. Wonder exactly how much battery these settings actaully use.

    I think you should download Battery Doctor from the appstore. I use that to check my battery life and it repairs it while it charges

    That's pretty good! You should repeat that usage pattern but instead of using Wi-Fi use LTE and see what your battery life is after that. That's the real test LOL

    I see mine a little better than I did with my iPhone4. I get a day out of it easy and sometimes 2 days depending on my usage.

    Are you running 6.1?
    Conditioning the battery once a month really helps also. By conditioning I mean drain the battery to zero until it turns off then charge it uninterrupted to 100%

    I try and condition the battery once a month. I have not notice any difference today with 6.1 with the past.

    Thanks, i will try that. Are you leaving your plugged in overnight or do you shut your phone off? Are you using a paid or free app like battery monitor?

    My phone drains fast when I play Battle Ship.

    Well if your not experiencing issues before and not experiencing them now, that's a good thing because Apple has a history of affecting battery life in a negative way with subsequent OS updates!
    I'm quite happy with 6.1!
    Is it just me or do you notice Siri processes spoken queries faster?

    I never turn my phone off. I usually unplug it if unable to when the battery indicator changes to the plug sign indicating a full charge. I'm not a fan of charging my phone overnight if I have the option not to need to.
    People say leaving it plugged in overnight doesn't affect the battery, but it does because the battery drops down to about 98% and then recharges and keep repeating the process until you unplug the phone.
    I know sometimes it's difficult but try not to charge it overnight.

    but that's just your theory. do you have any proof to back it up?

    I am sure most people usually charge their phone overnight when they sleep, so Apple, Samsung, and any other OEM manufacturers have consider that scenario in their battery management software. If charging overnight will affect the battery, I am confident that these OEMs would address it, otherwise people will be unhappy and return the phone.

    In my opinion, charging it overnight or until it's full do not have any affect whatsoever to the phone except normal wear and tear.

    Jailbreak your phone, download a utility called battery detective? Take not of the health of the battery. Then charge it over night for a month then check the health and max capacity and you'll see what I'm talking about. I know how batteries work. I don't care what manufacturers say, I know exactly how lithium ion batteries work. They're not designed to be over charged over and over.
    Plug in a laptop with its battery attached charging every day all day and talk to me after month and tell me how that battery is doing...

    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.
    The tech specs on Apple's website say 40 hours of music playback. If you're using your phone primarily for music your battery life is nothing out of the ordinary.

    What kind of battery life are people getting when only on 3G or LTE (not wifi)? I get about 5 hours of usage, give or take a little.

    lol, if you know battery, then my brother is God of battery as he works at Tesla Motors as their battery engineer in their battery laboratory. Even he himself plugs his phone at night when he sleeps. No problems at all.

    the laptop is not the right comparison, but even if you want to compare it, nowadays you have built in battery on the laptop like Sony and Apple. Would it be a hassle to plug and unplug all day and not charging it? your theory is not correct.

    You can't just claim a fact and not back it up.

    How to Prolong Lithium-based Batteries - Battery University

    "Should I disconnect my laptop from the power grid when not in use? many ask. Under normal circumstances this should not be necessary because once the lithium-ion battery is full the charger discontinues charge and only engages when the battery voltage drops. Most users do not remove the AC power and I like to believe that this practice is safe."
