    The battery life on mine seems to better now than it was before. I haven't made any changes so perhaps I am "playing" with it less!

    ok, first of all that battery life is doctored up somehow

    secondly, is that you in your avatar?? if so Hi!
    if you charge the iphone to 100% it does not reset the stand by time nor the usage. so you can get like many days of stand by time

    Its depending on your phone usages; for e.g. how many apps you used at a time and also depend on its timing too as like you used it for hours, for few hours.

    I think my iPhone's battery life has significantly deceased over the past month. To give an example, I unplugged my phone at 5:30 one morning. When I got up at like 10-11, I had lost 7% of it doing absolutely nothing. Any suggestions on what I can do besides taking it to Apple?

    I'm running iOS 6.1.3 on my 4S. Battery life isn't bad. Try making some adjustments to the brightness.

    I am only on my second day and 8 hours heavy use with ease! I find this device on par with the Q10 I have but much better than the S4.

    That's crazy 2nd day with 8 hours. I do a little web browsing. Texting and emailing.
    But between the emails and texting I'm done in 4-5 hours.

    This thing is like Cialis for the iPhone

    Just to be clear, usage includes screen on time + phone calls right?
    Yes, it does.

    Here is my screenshot. I don't think it should be this low at all. With about 3 hours of usage and 4.5 hours of standby. What do you guys think?

    I merged your same topic thread with this one for further discussion....... That said, it appears that something isn't right with the battery life as you should be getting a lot more time than that. I think you should make an appointment with Apple and get it looked at.

    You're welcome and yes, they will definitely see you as your iPhone 5 has a warranty of 1 year whether you have the added AC insurance or not. Just call to set up an appointment.

    Have you tried restoring it as a new iPhone? That helped me when I was getting similar results.

    Also, charly above is most likely getting those amazing results because he/she is on wifi all day and using it mostly for text messaging and/or apps that do not use Internet. That is based on my experience anyway.

    You are partly right, yes I have been on WiFi 90% of this charge cycle. However my usage phone calls, texting, email, forum browsing, Facebook, internet, GroupMe etc have been about the same as always.

    I have no explanation for the results and somewhat doubt that it will get repeated again.

    I wish I was able to get it to be that good. That's an area I wish phones would pick up in. I'd rather have amazing battery life than 2GB of RAM. I'm always on wifi on my iPhone and I'd say its mediocre but nothing spectacular. That's why I asked about specific settings.

    I generally have no problem with my phone lasting a day, though I will be giving this phone the ultimate test when I start taking the bus to class this semester. Generally the bus ride (about 3 hours including transfer times) is fairly draining on my battery. My signal is crap in many of the areas I go and there isn't 4g just 3G (and bad 3G) . Where I live I have pretty damn good lte signal. When in town, I have no problems with battery life. When I was in DC for vacation when I first got this phone, I also had no problem with battery life (no wifi for 3 days). The only time I ever have problems with battery life is in the city my family lives and the city my school is in. I can still last a day but I'm usually down to the last 10 percent at bedtime. When I am at home I can be anywhere from 30-90 percent. It just depends how much I used the phone. I think I have only had it die on me once and I've forgotten to charge it overnight twice and it lasted through the second day as well!

    There are some important things to remember with your batter

    - usage times aren't the only factor in usage, it depends on the apps your using. Videos (especially streaming, 3d games, and GPS are battery drainers. Limit these when possible.

    - certain apps constantly use GPS even when you don't think they are. These apps include some mapping, weather and other apps. It's important to know this and make sure the apps that use these features are closed. Also note the difference between the mapping app and reminders. It's ok to have an app know the location, but certain apps drain far more juice as they pull more location data, particularly because the GPS is an aGPS chip and uses data. If your in a good signal area you may not notice battery drain at all. However, in bad signal, you will notice fairly quickly)

    - signal itself plays the largest part in battery drain. I can use LTE in my city all day and still have 40-50 percent battery with 6 hours of usage if not more at bedtime. However I can have 10-15 percent battery with 2 hours of usage when in 3G areas that aren't so great (which, with sprint, seems to be all their 3G!) I will say this phone has the best battery life I've ever had as most of my devices died at 10-12 hours while my iPhone usually still has plenty of juice left at bedtime.

    If you have bad battery life, check signal in your area and your carriers reliability, if its sprint, your in for a bumpy ride!
