    Battery is amazing. I've had Android and Windows 7 and never had this good of battery life.
    it seems that you don't know that an iphone5 battery is not exactly the same as a Nokia battery. And not because these 2 phones run different OS.

    That's pretty standard for me. Not sure about others here.

    On a side note, I noticed that when I put on a really tough build case on my iPhone, my phone's signal drops a bit and gets hotter than usual on network. I'm at an hour use with 20 more minutes of standby with the battery at 75%. That's with heavy Maps use mind you. Thing was hotter than the blazes of hell.
