    I get 2 days out the battery or a full day with heavy usage. I have found that exchange active sync accounts can cause battery drain in general, but also after an OS upgrade they can become corrupt. Trying deleting the account and setup again. I changed all but my work account to imap and I Happy.

    I'm definitely gonna have to say yes. Right now I'm at 3 hours, 11 minutes of usage and only down to 77% battery. Oh yeah!
    The s3 would have been dead already

    Maybe not dead but at a considerably lower percentage than 77.

    All my screenshots are gone but you gotta think that even with the screen off there are a number of things that are allowed to run amuck in the background on Android devices. Once I went into data usage and restricted background data to wifi only my battery life sky rocketed. I could get at least 8 hrs on 1/2 of a battery.

    And what about the iphone 5, what's your usage to get 3h and down at 77?
    That's quite awesome !

    I have 40% left after 15 hours and I feel confident to leave the house with that much juice. I'm off today for a Dr visit.

    I typically don't let run until shut off. I charge up at 20%. I'll post it when I hit that percentage.

    yeah i heard that could damage the battery in some ways
    I plug it a 10%.
    is "usage" on iOS = "screen time" on android?

    I would assume so. This is how usage is defined on Apple's site...

    "Usage: Amount of time iPhone has been awake and in use since the last full charge. The phone is awake when youre on a call, using email, listening to music, browsing the web, or sending and receiving text messages, or during certain background tasks such as auto-checking email."

    so i would say that iphone 5 battery life is twice better than most of android according to the 8h of usage that people gets.

    9h of usage this is quite awesome, with my galaxy note 2 i used to do like 8h screen time.
    so do you think that i5 battery life is really better than the S3 you got?
    ps: but did you really use your phone during these 9h?

    Yes it's better. As far as the 9 hrs...I checked my timeline on twitter a bit, watched some YouTube videos, I was fairly active on Tapatalk and did some web browsing. Had a few phone calls but nothing too major. I'm sure the background stuff was a decent portion as well.

    thanks for those answers, I had s3, note 2 etc... but I'm fed up with the battery life on android and I wanted to switch to iOS and it seems that the iphone 5 has a great battery life.

    is it true that one hour of web browsing using wifi takes about 10% of battery?

    You guys give me hope, coming from a RAZR Maxx, this will be a difficult transition.
