    I leave LTE on, turn off apps that don't need location services, most notifications are off, auto brightness is off and turned down, bluetooth is off, and email is changes to check every 30 min. I'm getting great battery life.

    How do I know of something is running in the background when it shouldn't be? Like a rogue app or something that isn't right ?

    Overall very impressed with my battery life compared to my 4S. Use my device exactly the same as before and get better life from it. I used to need to charge my 4S around 4pm but with the 5 I make it to 7pm-8pm with my normal use.

    My stanby has always been great. At work, when I'll have my phone in my pocket for 4-8 hours, it barely drop at all. Today I was getting pretty bad usage, though. This is some browsing, FB, a 2 minute phone call and a little bit of texting. Also about 15 minutes of music over the speakers.

    Wow. How much of that usage was spent on Wi-Fi? And how much of that was listening to music?

    Nearly all of it was Wifi use, including Facebook, texting, GroupMe, Safari. Two or so hours on LTE and about an hour of pure music.app use

    I honestly was shocked at it myself. I didn't do anything different from what I normally do on those days. I just make sure my apps are closed and that my screen brightness it at 60% or less.

    It just keeps getting better and better... about 30-35% on wifi... email, twitter, instagram, web surfing... I didn't charge it over night last night, and it's still going strong...

    I feel like this could be better...I charged it at work to 100% then took it off charger at like 4pm , got off work at 5 and at 5:30 played a game for like 45 min maybe longer and then took this screen shot. 60% seems. Little steep for having it off the charger only a few hours , it's 7 pm now I took that pic ten min ago. I might swap this one for another at apple because my moms iPhone 5 gets amazing battery and mine not so much. What do u guys think?

    That's crazy. The best I've gotten was 9hrs 30mins usage and 1.5 days stanby with 5% left. That was 95% on wifi and the screen brightness always the lowest. I now bring the screen brightness up and use more 3G/LTE and I can't really make it through a full day.

    That's pretty low, but games will drain the battery quick. Still, around 60% after 1.5 hours is pretty low.

    Doesn't seem like the software update is going to do anything to help the battery life.

    Seems like we'll have to wait until 6.1 (after Christmas) if anything. An Apple Genius had told me 6.0.1 would improve the battery life when I took mine in.

    Mine has incredible battery on wifi. On 3G or LTE it seems to drain every time I do a simple action on it (send one text, look at one website, read one email, etc.)

    Same experience here. On wifi I get about 7-8 hours of battery life, sometimes even more. Over 3G or LTE I'm getting around 4 hours. Something's not right.
