    Default Re: 5c battery life surprise

    These days I have a totally different experience, I use my iPhone to text, a few fitness apps. I don't even have email setup on it but after a few calls maybe a couple chapters of Waking Dead2 and the battery is done.

    I carry two phones daily the other being a BlackBerry Q10 and after a ton of calls emails music movies epub books ( yes my commuter is that long ) I still have juice left for the next day.

    I came from the iPhone 5 to the 5C, and TO ME, it's been a pretty big jump in battery life. Keep in mind, that I've only had it about a week, but I got over a day and a half with moderate usage. That's pretty amazing to me. I've never had a problem getting a full day out of any iPhone, but the 5C seems to have a little more juice than in the past. I'm not complaining at all.

    Here's my battery stats for the day. I'm not a "power user" per se, but this is great IMHO.

    Default 5c battery life surprise



    Not bad. I'm letting it die today for the first time since I got it. I want to see if a full cycle will increase the battery life at all.

    Default 5c battery life surprise

    On my updated iOS 7.1, 5C Green.

    It is pretty alright in the battery department.



    I should also add that I have iphone connected to Pebble watch 24/7 via Bluetooth, and Wifi is on all the time.

    I haven't updated the OS yet because I read battery life on it is poor.

    My brothers new 5c seems to be getting better battery life than my 5s. Our usage and standby times are close, but he has like 30% more life left.

    I've updated to 7.1 and I'm in about 3 months with my C and I've yet to get under 30% after a full day. I'm getting AMAZING battery life. This would be about 5:30AM 'till 10PM. Again, with moderate usage.

    5c battery life surprise-imageuploadedbytapatalk1395629862.064045.jpg this is my battery life today and I'm a HEAVY user. Twitter, IG, Facebook, and selfies ALL DAY. I listened to two-three albums today. I used apple maps to get directions, made two phone calls and surfed safari to search for med school. I didn't really use my phone SUPER EXCESSIVE today but I used it heavy.

    I'm a pretty moderate user. I have three devices so I split my day up between them. My 5c:

    Doesn't it get troublesome to split the day's usage to 3 devices? Like your messages that you need are found in the other phone when you are using another? Do you find that a problem?

    Not really. I use my Note 3 like a tablet in the morning and evening. It doesn't have service right now but I do have the SIM adapter for it.

    My iPhone 5c and 5s both get played with at work. Usually if it's a super important message, they send it to both my numbers. I guess it depends on if I'm in the mood for stock OS 7.1 or JB 7.0.6.

    So far, this is the best battery life on an iPhone that I've ever got.

And that's with many features switched off. So in my experience the 5S battery can't keep up with the C but that's just two of billions of devices compared, don't know how they stack up in general.
    I maintain the opinion that the 5c only slightly edges out the 5s for battery life. The 5s on the days I use them rarely needs a charge until the end of the day, just like the 5c, but maybe the 5c just has like a half-hour advantage at the end of the day. To me, that says that the whole comparison really is nothing incredibly lop-sided and it shouldn't be blown out of proportion. But that's my opinion, take it however you will.

    My iPhone 4S would die about 3 times a day with light to normal use. It was so frustrating as it would feel like my phone was always dead.
