    6.1.2 is no good for me. battery life is worst than 6.1. I usually restore as new instead of upgrade, then restore the backup

    6.1.2 is terrible for me too, I wonder why all the tech sites jump on every lame passcode bypass loophole yet ignore the battery issues plaguing this release??

    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.
    You're kidding right twice as good? From what I'm reading you guys aren't getting a third of what my RAZR maxx is getting.

    I wish I can go back to 6.1. 6.1 was the best so far for me. Second is 6.0.2, which came shipped with the phone. last is 6.1.2. I have only experienced 3 iOS so far.

    You're also on EV-DO which is not going to eat battery like LTE. The phone you have is the only Android phone on the planet that beats the iPhone in battery life. Don't take my word for it, look at this graph from Anandtech. How is your iPhone 5 battery life?-imageuploadedbytapatalk-21362030025.432199.jpg

    My Maxx gets 2 to 3 days average. But I'm behind a computer for 8 to 12 hours a day, so I don't use my phone for anything more than calls and texts while I'm at work, that being said this is what I got on just the second day of owning this phone...

    That actually doesn't seem that bad to me. You're on pace for about 20.5 hours of standby with 5 hours of usage. Unless you're gonna be away from a charger for more than 20 hours I think that is sufficient.

    Not too bad. Simultaneous music browsing/Facebook, videos, and a 30 minute phone call.

    Not really, that's still bad. With same usage, when I drained my battery for monthly refresh, I could get the following stat
    6.1 iOS
    1% left
    12h30m - usage
    1d - standby

    as you can see, with 6.1.2, if I go all the way, it would probably be 6-7 hrs tops, not 12 hours that I got with 6.1.

    Still maintain what I stated in the quoted post. I'm just at point where I know I'm near a charger so if I don't get a days worth of standby so be it.

    seems like it's getting worst with every software update. 6.1 was the best for me.
