    Got my new iPhone 5 today with ios 7, it can barely stay for 2 hours from 100%-0%.

    I have few apps like whattsap, facebook, twitter, instagram, bbc news, cnn news, cnn oney, bbc sports, imore forums, goal.com, tapatalk, shazam, messenger, tr news, chrome, dictionary, livescore, supersport, imdb, telegram, pinterest, ebay, amazon, bible, wikipedia and youtuebe.

    I have 3G running with data roaming.

    Please help out guys.

    That most definatly isn't right... Take your phone back and demand a new one. You should be getting way better usage then that. Did you try updating the software?

    A lot of apps could be running in the background, or seems like most of them have location services. Turn them off when you don't need them. My iPhone5s running 7.1.2 can last 8 hours at least

    Also Data Roaming will put a good size dent in your battery usage

    If you were running iOS 8 you could use the new feature in Usage to monitor your consumption

    You have need to close your extra running apps and also watch out your phone brightness and data connection if you don't used and other things as well. I hope you get better results.

    I have to close out apps when I'm done with them or my battery, performance, and stability get compromised. I'm on iOS 8.0.2.

    I'd suggest turning off background data and just do fetch for the unimportant apps.

    I also keep location off for most things unless I'm actively using them. That or they're for security reasons.

    If the phone doesn't improve, I'd venture to say it's a defective unit.

    I have done the same as u said and i see abit of results, adding 3 more hours. So i can survive 5 hours of data usage.

    I still want to sell it to other people and update to 5S, because i bought it online and incurred lots of money for importing here

    If you bought it used, then the battery is wearing out. 5 hours is OK with heavy use for an older phone.

    No phone lasts only two hours, even my old BlackBerry Z10, maybe get it replaced would be good.
