    I have a question, and maybe someone here can answer it.

    I'm thinking of switching to an iPhone 5 from an Android phone. In Android, it has a time listed while the phone is on battery. This is since the phone was unplugged after a full charge. How is this represented with the battery stats in iOS? Is the total time off the charger the usage time and standby time combined? If so, that's incredible, and rivals my RAZR MAXX HD while only having half the battery capacity.

    Standby time is the total time off the charger (which includes usage time) while usage time is the amount of time that the phone has been doing something.

    Thanks! That's incredible, though. Most Android phones with a battery bigger than that last half as long with less usage. This battery life seems to be right on par with my MAXX HD, which is definitely a good thing.

    That doesn't look right for an iPhone 5. You can't tell me you got almost 18 hours usage and you're only down to 69%. You would not get that with a 5 even with a new battery.

    I don't know. But those stats can't possibly be right. Try again by letting the phone with drain down to 1%. Then charge it up to 100%, letting it charge past 100% for about 45 minutes. Don't use the phone while charging it. After charging, use it normally until it gets down below 10%. Then take another screenshot of the stats.
