    It was no wi-fi and constantly bouncing back and forth from LTE to "4G".I work right on the edge of a LTE area so it bounces back and forth a lot. Sometimes its easier to just shut it off of LTE but then i forget to turn it back on. Also it was about an hour playing tiger woods PGA tour 13, the rest was streaming Sirius radio on and off over Bluetooth and texting/calls. About 15 mins FaceTime over cellular too. I was pretty impressed with it.

    Does anybody else's battery stay at 100% for a while after charging? Mine made it to 42 minutes of usage and 2.5 hours of stanby before it went down to 99%. However, some days ilI'll unplug and it will go down to 98% right away. Anyways: most of the day on Wi-Fi, some on LTE and 3G. My battery is pretty good off Wi-Fi but pretty bad off 3G/LTE.

    Yes it depends because if your phone hit 100 then u pulled it ... It lasts longer that's cuz when it's on charger and hits 100 it stops charging its a safety feature that why it will drop from 100 so fast ..

    FYI:

    iOS 6.0.1 in testing, 6.1 on its way after the holiday season ends? - TodaysiPhone.com

    Hope the "cellular issue" is what we've been discussing...

    I charged my iPhone earlier and it drained to 94% after a bit of usage. When I turned it off (for a non-battery related issue) and turned it back on my battery showed at 99%.

    Yeah i agree with you with gaming is battery killer.If you just call,text,email,web browsing and play music then you should'nt have problem with your battery.if you really wanna play then make sure the charger is close by.i think the ipad mini is gonna be my ultimate gaming machine

    That's no different than a laptop though. Battery specs are given for light usage. Playing a graphically intensive game on my MacBook will kill the battery fairly quick as well.

    I am noticing that after having the iPhone 5 for a couple weeks now, my battery life has improved a lot. Yes, I'm still using it the same amount, but I think there's some truth to the battery having to be "broken in". I never really bought in to that notion before, but now I'm not so sure. I think it does improve over the first several weeks based on my experience.

    I'm experiencing pretty great battery life. Much better than my 4S.

    At 29% right now, 13 hours 8 minutes standby. 7 hours 6 minutes usage.

    Been using it pretty heavily throughout the day with music, youtube videos, downloaded an album, browsed the web. I feel like I'm getting much better battery life than I did with 4S.

    Only about a half hour of music. The rest is wifi and LTE usage.

    So I just came from Android and just got the iphone 5. Android could give you much more specific battery stats. All I see is 7.5 hours of usage after one day, and 12.5 of standby. Is that good?
    How do I find out whats running because I know I didnt have the screen on for 7 hours.
    Also, Why does wifi eventually turn off when the screens off? It's just a terrible move. You use data while the screens off vs Wifi. Why would anyone want that?
    So is that good battery life?

    This is beyond ridiculous. Thought the dfu restore fixed my phone but it didn't. Been texting a friend for the past hour and that's all.

    I get the same battery life on my S3 with a larger screen so yes its slightly ridiculous but this is also apples first attempt at LTE.

    Does anyone know exactly what processor is in the i5?

    I don't know what you do with your phone...
    The i5 uses the Apple A6 processor. Dual-core, 1GB of RAM, and clocked at roughly 1.2gHz.

    Usage is a number of different things. If you're listening to music with the screen off, that's usage. If you get a text while it's in your pocket, that's usage. If your iPhone checks for emails, that's usage. Pretty much any time the phone has to process something it's considered usage. Stanby is the time your phone has been unplugged from your charger as long as your device isn't turned off.

    That's good battery life, depending what you do. Obviously if you're listening to music through your headphones for four hours it isn't good battery stats, but if you're browsing, streaming, etc a lot it's pretty good. But usually 7.5 hours of usage is good.

    And anything that will use data will turn the Wi-Fi back on. It won't use cellular data if your Wi-Fi is turned on. When the screen is off, the Wi-Fi goes off to save battery. However, it will check for everything using Wi-Fi.

    Thanks for this, are you 100% of all this information?
