    Here is one from today. I did do some 20 min navigation on this one in addition to web surfing, texting, emailing and other screen on activities. The battery is as good as my iPhone 4 used to be and the 4 did not have battery sucking LTE.

    Time since last full charge:
    Usage: 3 Hours, 21 Minutes
    Standby: 12 Hours, 55 Minutes

    Steady usage 52%, in full LTE Verizon area, also using WiFi when possible.

    Just had my iPhone 5 replaced due to faulty on/off button and already this battery is better than my previous one. Usually I am lucky to make it home with 10% battery after a day of work. First day with the new phone and I still had 40% battery when I got home.

    So I did a "stress" test. These were my results. My use was pretty passive in nature. As I am a heavy user, this is not indicative of my reality.

    Company switched me over 2 weeks ago as I was the last hold out with a blackberry. Gotta say the battery life is the worst I have seen in a phone, 100-150 emails a day few times on facebook,twitter cnn etc and the BB Torch would go 2 -2/12 days with out a chrage. The 5 I have to recharge every day if I am lucky I will get 8 hours. few of the others are having same issue. Phone is impressive so far with everything but that. If the battery keeps draining so quick I will definitley have my IT switch me back to BB10 in new year when it comes out.
    To bad I was starting to like the 5 but the battery life is becoming a pain. I will try the whole drain and full recharge a few times to see if that is better

    Here is mine on the first full day of changing and using it. It's about the same as the 4S when I first got it. You have to remember that the battery will get better and it gets conditioned.
    Does it really do this?

    Are (or were) you in an area with bad reception? Low signal will rapidly deplete a battery. And using cell data over wifi will use more battery. WiFi is a lot more efficient.
    i stay in an area wit bad reception, could this be the reason y my battry life is bad?

    yes. Also fringe reception areas from 3G/LTE will suck down battery life big time.

    Mines really good, it didn't start out when I initially got my i5 but it all turn out great. I get 12 hours out of mine in a day. And that's with writing articles with Wordpress app and playing MW4.

    When swapping my iPhone out, the genius showed me my statistics.

    I had about 2 in a half days of stand by on one charge. About 11 hours of usage.
    He was rather impressed with me.

    I was also low on app data haha, then he suddenly wasn't so happy with me.

    It's so hard to believe that a lot of people have battery draining problems. While some don't. And apple not acknowledging.

    It's pretty poor, if you're a heavy Social user then I'd suggest getting a Mophie accessory as my iPhone 5 barely lasts half a day on a full charge.

    I've seen some people on here who say if you reset all settings that it helps with battery life. Well I've tried it and so far I'm getting better results. I'm at 3:33 minutes of usage and 11:04 of standby time and I'm at 58%. That's all day on "4G" AT&T (not LTE) and about a half hour on wifi. Played a few games, text messages, one phone call and light email, web use. That's better than before the reset when I would be down to about 30% by now.

    No issues at all with battery life on my phone. I use it pretty hard during the day. I am pretty pleased with it.

    I restored and set up as new iPhone... Much better battery life. I previously was running my backup from an ip4.
