    No issues here. I have been listening to a pod cast, and playing temple run 2 both for about 15 minutes and I am still at 100%

    I will do a full day usage run today.

    That's pretty bad. My best usage times for my iPhone 5 was like 14 hrs of use, 1 day 22 hours standby or so. Here's a screenshot of when I still had 25% left. I can't find my 1% screenshot.

    Keep in mind all of this could be construed as misrepresentation. If one person is providing a screenshot of his/her usage, but is running their phone at full brightness, while surfing the net and watching youtube for majority of his usage, on a weak 3G signal..........of course the stats are going to look worse that the other person who keeps their screen as dim as possible, while streaming music for majority of his usage (which keeps the screen low to off), on wifi all day.

    With so little accompanying information in threads like this, it makes it nearly impossible to accurately tell if someone is seeing "adequate" battery life or not.

    Yup Brightness, some many applications, push vs fetch. Wifi and non WiFi can all be different..The list can go on and on....


    When ever in doubt head into Apple and have the device checked out. other then that use it and top it off when needed

    Default Battery dying too quickly?

    Almost a day on my iPhone 5 with my regular usage. This is amazing compared to what I was getting on the betas. However I decided that to truly test the battery life I was going to do a fresh reload of iOS 6.1. So if you are really frustrated with the battery life. Then download the iOS 6.1 ipsw and in iTunes do a Option+Restore(Mac), Shift+Restore(Windows). This will do a fresh reload instead of an upgrade. Then when it asks if you want to restore from the backup choose setup as new. It's a pain to redo all your settings I know but then you will be sure that some corruption is not messing up the OS. Then if after that your battery life still sucks take it in to the Apple store.

    It's still really early into my usage with iOS 6.1 but so far it seems to be slightly better. I was getting good battery life on 6.0.1 and skipped 6.0.2 from hearing so much about battery issues.

    Not me. Thus far, it is on par with the way it was prior to the update. If you're noticing a big problem with it, re-install iOS 6.1 via iTunes.

    Battery for me since the update has been amazing. The drain is almost 1/3 slower than I was on the previous OS. I'm liking 6.1 a lot.

    Do you go on to Wifi at all through out the day? If it's out there, I suggest you jump on it. That should help a bit.
    I noticed on the on picture you posted nt long ago. You had three bars, does it change often? High or Low.

    Low signal will work the radio harder using the device and even when idle.

    I live in an area with bad reception. Has soon as I get out of the house my reception increases. I make sure everything is off like Wi Fi Bluetooth, personal hotspot etc.
    I'm never really on Wi Fi only when I get home for a few minutes after work then pass out lol.

    I would put money on it then that it's your reception then. Working that radio will give you what you have been seeing.

    Can you check with your carrier, most have Network Extenders which help with indoor reception issues, normally basements....

    ive found that leaving wifi on even when not connected doesnt really effect my battery. also, make sure bluetooth is off. sometimes it can be on by default and not even show the indicator in the notification bar. however, a weak signal definitely will. when youre home, try to stay on wifi as much as possible.

    My Bluetooth is off. Wi off. Raise to speak off. Siri on and location services on. Always close multitasking tray. I guess it's the reception.
