    It could be better but it is over 14 hours so I think it is okay...

    yeah that's pretty much on par but it could be a little better. Try this:

    Make sure all your apps are up to date
    Hook up to iTunes right click the iPhone and choose transfer purchases
    Do a sync
    If you're using iCloud backup do an iCloud backup
    Hook back up to iTunes and click each tab except apps and uncheck the Sync option then sync
    This will remove all the media from your phone, reboot
    Do screenshots of your homescreens so you know what apps you have, transfer the pictures to your computer
    Put your apps into jiggly mode and remove any apps that don't require a username/password to use, reboot
    Hook up to iTunes and click restore that will download and restore your OS once it's done ignore the iTunes prompt "Restore from or Setup as new...)
    Unplug from the USB login to the phone and restore from the latest iCloud backup you did
    It will put back all your media and apps
    Reboot

    *Optional
    It depends how you like to keep your media and apps synced if you prefer to use iTunes then hook the iPhone back up to iTunes
    Click each tab and see if there are any that aren't checked to sync media(when I did this my apps weren't being synced through iTunes)
    Any that aren't checked check it and do a sync that will set it so that things are synced through iTunes instead of managed through iCloud

    Default Battery life normal?

    I get at least 8 hours of usage while on LTE...while on at least 1 day of standby.

    Something ain't right with your usage.

    I'm sorry. What are you actually doing here to save battery? Bought the Maxx HD last week but thinking of returning it for the 5. Battery is a concern though Thanks.

    +1. Granted I'm new here but, I can't for the life of me figure out how this helps battery life.

    It looks ok too me. I turn off all my apps regularly but don't turn my wifi off during the day even when im at work with no wifi coverage and very poor carrier service and still get good battery use out of my phone.

    I charge it once every two days and I do use it a fair bit
