    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.
    Ya think so!? I thought I was going to be reading better battery performance than what I just did. best I've seen here is about 10-11 hours. Nowhere near the 24+ hours. And that is NOT just sitting on the table.

    Battery life is still looking good here after about a week. This is with LTE. Push notification for three emails, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, And a few other random applications

    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.
    Just because you and some others got one that has poor battery life does not mean the battery life sucks for everyone. What it means is that it sucked for you. For your information, I am not on WiFi all day and I actually do use my iPhone 5 for the 8+ hours that are displayed in my screenshot. One hour a day is music use, the rest of it is; calls, email, messaging, and safari & Tapatalk use.


    Easy to love the battery when you don't use the phone.

    It's easy to hate on a product when you get one that has issues....

    As stated above, I do use my iPhone 5 and love it. Best iPhone Eva!!

    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!!
    Agreed 100%. I am also getting great battery life along with you and many others that I've read about on another site.

    Any advantage or impact to battery life to turning off LTE if not in an LTE area?

    Not from what I am seeing. 2 miles from my house has LTE, while my direct area does not. I leave LTE set to on anyway as it doesn't seem to have a impact on my battery life so far.

    The only time it would effect it would probably be if you are getting a very borderline poor LTE signal. Then I'd probably turn it off until it improves.

    Does this seem like normal depletion? I've not set it down since unplugging it. Reading on here, texting, a couple of games and one phone call. I'm planning in running the battery down completely.
    I wasn't sure I was getting very good battery life so i wiped it and did a clean install. Hoping this helps.

    Ok....with further use I feel like this is pretty exceptional. That's solid use and I'm still around 50%. Makes me think that normal use would be really good.

    I'm almost always on wifi. With that in mind, my battery life has been absolutely phenomenal.

    Ok... Here's the first full day after doing a clean restore. I feel like that was good. I purposely played with the phone ALOT to test it.

    I posted earlier that my battery wasn't so great, but now it's doing much better. With LTE on I now get about 7-9 hours of good battery.

    It's been over a week now & I have been impressed with the battery. It is similar to my iPhone 4 but it all comes down to management. If you play your favorite game for like an hour it drains pretty quick like with any phone. If you manage texting, calling, taking pictures, a game every now & then you can last all day. I've gotten an easy 12 hours if I managed it properly a few times. I use wifi whenever I can. That usually helps the battery life & saves data lol.

    Yes, it is. Multiple chargers solves that issue...

    I will say this, I left mine off the charger last night just to see how long it would last with normal use. I never got this kind of life with my 4 or 4s. I'm pretty happy with the battery life on the iPhone 5.
