    Default iPhone 5 Battery Life

    Hi everyone, I'm just wondering what you all think of the battery life on the 5. iPhone 5 Battery Life-imageuploadedbytapatalk1349688603.753848.jpg

    That's my battery life at the moment and of course that's far far worse than my 4S. I've done a restore and obviously that hasn't helped, so what do you guys think? 8% in 20 minutes is bad, right?

    And here's right now (I literally just plugged it in)

    I'm happy with it. It took some tweaking to get it like this, but I'm happy

    This is the best battery life I have ever had with any smartphone. With my 4s I would have had to put it on the charger yesterday evening.

    Every user will have different battery life. We all use devices differently. More apps running, some video, different screen brightness. There are so many factors, and not one is alike.


    If your current state meets what apple says, then you should be fine. But there are a lot of things you can do to improve it even more. But one can not say his device is avg, because there is no set average for one user, nor a whole room of iPhones

    Is that why this forum was renamed, iMore?

    Yeah. I want this too. But I get this. iPhone 5 Battery Life-imageuploadedbytapatalk1349829930.556902.jpg

    Yeah I posted this in the other thread too.

    Somebody lock it up.
    Steve Jobs created iCloud so he would have somewhere to go when he died and still be with Apple.
