    Just to be clear, usage includes screen on time + phone calls right? Because on Android I'm battery settings phone calls and screen on time are separated. I know usage is not just screen on time because my finances iPhone 4S displays 4 to 5 hours usage on an average day when she knows she only had the screen on for an hour.

    This is my first day at work and away from wifi for ten hours. I'm pretty happy, considering that it includes a Metro ride.

    No, it's actually quite good. I give my devices the acid test...using the for my 45 minute ride in the DC Metro. Instantly seeking signal. It handled that beautifully. Also the drive through extreme northwestern Virginia.

    The battery lasted longer than my Z10 which I wasn't even using.

    If you click the home button and wake the device up, that is accounted for usage time.

    I had a marathon texting session today. A whopping 346 messages in a span of 5-6 hours and yes my fingers are smoking lol.

    I am very pleasantly surprise that it still made 9 hours of usage, didn't think it would go that long.

    That's really good battery life

    I see you went down to 1% and I'm assuming your texting on landscape mode cause your on rotation lock

    How is your iPhone 5 battery life?-batteryyyyyy.jpg

    I have everything turned on except the Location Service.I am turning it on only when I need it and then turning it off again,because while it was always on it drained battery. I think the battery is doing great so far

    Doesn't it also count any time the screen comes on for incoming messages, alerts, etc? I though it was basically any time the screen is on.

    It's my first iPhone.I have no clue what doctoring is all about,but I haven't done anything to it.Like I said I just turned off the Location Service.I may forgot to say also that while I am sleeping I am turning the phone on plane mode so nobody will wake me up (Messanger,Viber,Calls and etc.).But even before I start leaving the phone on plane mode it was working 8h+ and almost 2 days in stand by.I probably got a very good battery
    Hey!
    Actually the avatar is Lady Gaga's promo picture for her upcoming album ARTPOP,that I cant wait to pre-order on 08/19!

    That's impressive battery life but is it necessary unless you don't have quick access to a charger

    There are a lot of better options than turning on airplane mode like Do Not Disturb and you can manage your Location service with each app that's accessing it

    I'm not telling you what to do but limiting yourself for the sake of battery life is unusual unless your in a bind and can't get to an outlet

    This.

    I read everything that was turned off and wondered why they even bother with a smartphone. Everything that makes a smartphone a smartphone was turned off.

    Per Apple


    • Usage: Amount of time iPhone has been awake and in use since the last full charge. The phone is awake when you’re on a call, using email, listening to music, browsing the web, or sending and receiving text messages, or during certain background tasks such as auto-checking email.
    • Standby: Amount of time iPhone has been powered on since its last full charge, including the time the phone has been asleep.

    My only battery saver is three quarter brightness and wifi access when safe

    The iPhone 5 comes with a good battery management baked in and rumored to improve with iOS 7. Compared to all my past smartphones except for my Mogul 6800 it's the best I've owned so far

    The best touchscreen phone I've ever used. I find the only time I get close to running out before the end of the day is due to streaming videos or playing games. For the most part it could last me more than 24 hours regular use - texting, emailing, facebook, reading the news etc.
