    My iPhone 5 battery started draining very fast from yesterday. And today after a full charge I used it only for 15 mins or so but it shows like this. Any idea why? iPhone 5 battery drain issue-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1390443347.103157.jpg

    Actually that was my problem. I only used for 15 mins. But the phone shows it as 2 hours. Anyway I restarted the phone and reinstalled Viber which crashed couple times yesterday. Now it seem to be ok. Will update once it's fully ok.

    Here's what I found so far. I usually on wifi 24/7. (Mobile data OFF). Because of the battery drain issue in the morning, I switched off wifi and recharge my phone to 100%. From 10am to 5pm it didn't drop a single percentage. It was 100% with couple of short calls and sms's. Then I switched on wifi and updates, tweets and notifications started flowing. Battery level started dropping. But again when the wifi signal is strong it doesn't affect much. So weak or unstable wifi is a battery killer. Same as weak carrier signal.

    Keep in mind the biggest or best answer to your question and problem is going to be HOW you use your phone mpre than anything else. Lots of notifications coming in from forum apps and Facebook or Twitter and the use of those same will drain a battery faster than anything.

    I don't think thats normal. I use wifi a lot too but it lasts 3-5 hours (Depends on your usage). On normal usage it lasts one day easily with 7-8 hours of usage. You should get it checked at Apple Genius bar.

    Actually if you looked at the screen shot, he had 91% battery left after 58 minutes of usage. So that's normal.
