    My battery life is not good. I rarely use it during the day except to check texts and to respond - maybe 3-5 throughout the day. It is off the charger from 7 AM to 5 PM and I have about 20% battery life by 5 PM. Does anyone else have this problem? Wondering if I should take it back and get a different one.

    This is mostly FB, Instagram, & texting. I did a restore from my 4S that was running iOS 6.

    I'm jealous. I'm losing about 20 percent an hour mostly using twitter, email, and surfing and I'm in a strong LTE signal area.

    Anyone have bad battery life that setup there iPhone 5 as new ?
    If you restored from any sort of backup before thinking you have issues I would try restore and setup as new

    1st night terrible - lost about half its battery life just sitting on my desk overnight.

    I get a fairly weak ATT signal at home - 1 or 2 bars. I have no problem making calls and don't drop calls either.

    I get only 4G at home. Turned LTE off and 2nd night only lost maybe 5 percent of battery life. Looks like I need to keep LTE off when home. That appears to me to be the big drain on my phone - trying to get LTE when there is none. I am only about a mile from an LTE service area so maybe they will upgrade near me soon.

    This is my first iPhone so obviously mine is set up as new, but battery life so for has been terrible. For texting, surfing, email over a good signal LTE I'm looking at 3.5 to 4 hours of usage.

    I swear the battery is getting better. I charged it the day before last and have been mainly using wifi apart from three hours yesterday when I went out horse riding. The battery is absolutely amazing!

    One discovery that I've made re: battery life seems to have to do with resetting network settings. Since I did that, my battery is still not perfect, but seems to be much better.

    Go to Settings / General / Reset and click the middle options Reset Network Settings.

    That's amazing.... I'm wondering if you are doing anything different than I am? Where do you have your brightness setting at and how many emails do you have and do you have push on?
    Any other tips you can give us. I consider my battery life pretty good but never have gotten for than a day out of it.

    I restored from a backup and noticed my battery life is very hit and miss. I am going to wipe it and restore as a new device later tonight.

    I think that the iphone 5 battery in combination with the new processor is the best on the market at the moment. I switched from the s3 with 2100mah back to the iphone.

    The phone was set up as a new phone. I do have push on and I get upwards of thirty emails a day pushed to my phone. As above, apart from about three hours, this has all been on wifi. I have the 'Do Not Disturb' feature on from 23:00 to 07:00 and overnight during that period I will lose maybe 4% battery.

    Brightness is set to auto but at about 35% I reckon. I have screen timeout set to one minute and notifications off except for my two primary email accounts and Twitter.

    In all honesty, i'm not doing anything different than I do with my Samsung Galaxy S3 but that battery only lasts 18 hours if i'm careful. Maybe I have a really good battery but I am blown away by how long it's lasting!

    This battery in the iP5 sucks. That sums it up for all you "lurkers" out there.

    To all of you getting a day + ... If you actually use it as a mobile phone, it will drain faster. Staying on wifi all day long, while it was a dream of Steve's to have an Apple network, will of course make your battery (in any smartphone) last longer.

    This is why the 4S didn't have it. And apparently, one more year didn't make a whole lot of difference.

    This bums me out. I took mine back. Back to using the iP4. For my usage, the range anxiety got to me, which basically makes the iP5 as useless as a bucket under a bull.

    I only used it as a phone for about 40 minutes out of my total time, it's true. Basically, mountainman, you had crappy battery life, my phone has great battery life. C'est la vie.

    What are your settings and what are you using your phone for? LTE? Wifi?

    WiFi & LTE always on, brightness is set to 40% with auto-brightness off, push mail mail is off, instead I have it set to fetch every 30 minutes. One thing I always do and I know they say you don't have to with these types of batteries, is to discharge the battery completely for 3 cycles. I've always done this with any new phone and thankfully never had an iPhone that had poor battery life.

    I actually use my phone all day, since I'm in the field working 12hrs everyday & my battery life is great. And no I'm not always on wifi. I travel around the country to different hospital sites & its a huge pain to setup wifi in each place so I don't. I'm only on wifi in my hotel room, which is not very often.

    I hate you had a bad battery experience but its not possible to please everybody...it is what it is!!
