    I'm also getting as advertised battery life. No complaints here.

    I'm on vzw and used GPS and Iheart radio for a 30 minute drive, my battery life went from 100 to 82. Was using LTE the entire time. Just reporting, not sure if that is normal as I'm coming from a gnex.

    GPS has always been a battery drain on iphone. You really need to have it plugged in to a car charger when using turn by turn...

    Battery is amazing. I've had Android and Windows 7 and never had this good of battery life. Picked my phone up at 8am yesterday and it was down to 1% about 1am the next morning. Thats a day of texting, web surfing, downloading apps, and playing with a new phone. Good stuff.

    I am enjoying the battery life as well. Too soon to get a true feel but thus far feels much liked 4s.

    100% at 7am, 56% at 11:30 am, moderate use, no wifi LTE only. My battery is going pretty quick. Do these batteries need a few cycles ?

    Did a full charge over night. Took off charge at about 0845 this morning or so. I have 5 hours, 45 minutes on standby, 3 hours and 12 minutes of usage for a total of 8 hours and 57 minutes and I am at 64% battery life left. That's with LTE turned off since I don't get LTE in my area, Facebook, twitter, email, iMessage, app store, sports apps......plus i close all apps in the tray when i'm done with them. Not too shabby, look forward to seeing how long it takes for it to just die.

    From 100% battery yesterday, I hit 62% before I put it on the charger for the night. I had about 3 ½ hours of actual usage (and I think around 5 hours stand by).

    I fully expect the battery life to rock once I'm over the honeymoon period and not using it almost every waking minute.

    I averaged about 6 hours of usage on the 4S; from what I'm seeing from my own usage and others on here, I expect to see around 8 hours of usage with this new phone (which is exciting!).

    My battery life isn't that spectacular so far; I barely used it at won all day and I'm already at 72%

    I had really good results with mine. Took it off charge at 8am this morning. Used about 5 hours stand by time and the rest I've been using it for games. Email. Surfing the web and I'm just hitting below 60%. That's awesome.

    I second this - the battery life is not good at all. If you are out and about it will drain. Very disappointing.

    Maybe it needs a few more charging cycles to get "in the groove" -- might have to get a Mophie Juice pack when they come out....

    Waaaay too early to tell.

    Just did my first battery cycle last night, so we'll see how things look this week.

    Mines awful. 4 hours and 8 minutes usage and 4 hours 50 minutes of standby and 6%. It was just as awful yesterday, is it safe for me to assume I have a bad battery?

    Mine is also a little disappointing right now. But as stated, too early to pass judgement. Haven't broken it in yet.

    Coming from 3 Androids in the past (Samsung Galaxy Nexus recently), this battery life is awesome!
    I saw comments about the navigation draining it fast. That would definitely be expected if the screen is on along with the GPS chip.

    For those that are trying to make it last all day and have issues, turning off 4G will definitely help, but I know its sucks to not have it on when you want to use it. I wish there was a way to have the phone revert back to 3G when the screen has been off for a while and switch back to 4G when the user turns it back on. My rooted Nexus had that feature, saved a lot of power. (but still not as good as the iPhone 5).

    My battery life is really good. I know how it is to have bad battery life though, as my 1st 4s was really bad. Perhaps some iPhone 5's have bad batteries too?

    Here is my battery life. I plugged my phone in for 30 seconds to make sure the 5 worked with my Nissan Altima stereo system. That's why it says I plugged in...

    To be fair, I've been on wifi for 80% of the day.
