    Hey team,

    So, I'm officially an iPhone 5 user after a brief stint with BB10. BlackBerry did a great job upping their game, but the lack of developer support made it an extremely restricted ecosystem.

    So, I've just switched to the i5. Loving it so far, but I have one beef with this phone. The battery drains SO FAST. I do use LTE, but I feel as though the batter shouldn't be draining as fast as it does...

    Anyone have any tips?

    First off, welcome to iMore. BB does have better battery quality than iOS I'll give them that. LTE will eat up ur battery. Do u have ur email set to push? If so, that will drain the battery quicker. Set ur brightness on the screen down as well. How many apps do u have pushing notifications?? That effects it too. Hope these tips help. Even tho this is from the iPhone 4 thread, same applies to ip5

    My battery is amazing compared to my 4s.

    Anyway, turn off blue tooth when not using it.

    Turn off GPS in apps that don't need it.

    I get the following battery life

    Hey, OP. welcome to the iPhone family. I'd suggest checking to see if you have any apps that are constantly searching your location. You can see this under location services in the settings app. Whenever I realize my device is draining significantly, it is generally a location based app continuously pulling data.

    If you were coming from a Q10, I'd warn you not to expect the same battery life on your iPhone. However, I'm not sure how great the battery life is on the Z10. I know it is nowhere near the Q10's, but in comparison to the iPhone, really not sure.

    Welcome over, I am another defector from Blackberry 10. After having an iPhone since their inception, I was getting bored with their IOS.

    Had the Q10 and is a great phone, but the Apple world has the developers that ensure a rich ecosystem for it's users. I don't think BB will ever get to that level of support and have a rich app world like apple does. I thought I would be fine without alot of the apps but in the end I really missed them. The new BB platform has alot going for it and plenty of potential, I just think it's too late in the game trying to get deelopers on board..

    It's nice to be back to apple, so welcome again and hope your enjoying your iPhone. .

    I came over from Blackberry last year and haven't looked back. Welcome to iMore. I suggest you use the auto brightness feature, set your email accounts to fetch or manual and only use push notifications for apps you really need pushed.

    I am still stuck with the Z10. My battery wil NOT last through a day at work. I suppose the frequent freezes and reboots eat up a lot of juice though.

    Is there a way to change push settings for apps since I clicked yes to push them after originally installing them?

    I wasn't sure if the notification center was the same as settings for push notifications. Thanks for the quick response.

    Welcome. Some great advice on battery life in this thread.

    Turning off push notifications for anything non-essential is a good battery saver. If you're running the Facebook app, turn off everything you can. I deleted the app as a test and my battery life has improved about 30% over the past week, so Facebook is a definite pig.

    Welcome to iMore - I've also left the z10 recently and come (back) to Appleland. I can't offer battery tips other than what's been said but it'll be about a week for the battery to condition. After that, you're golden.

    If you will use internet connection for 24 hpurs it will eat more battery. Even brightness also affects the battery power. Turn Off your mail synchronization, it will help you.

    I have to echo everyone here, the biggest drain I've found on the i5 and even the i4s, is the fact that some apps just don't know when to stop using your gps. LTE is another big factor on the 5. I should turn my LTE off on my Q10 since it's barley used, but I do have a bigger battery so it's ok :P

    Welcome back!

    I have tested other platforms for other reasons, plus app development. IMO iOS just works. I know many have said it before. But it's true...

    Solid hardware and great platform.
