    Should I keep the iPhone 5? I'm not liking the battery life at all or is it because the battery isn't seasoned yet? Thoughts?

    How many hours do you expect to get from it? Does the way you use your device coincides with the amount of battery life you expect to get? Do you spend a great deal of time on LTE? Have you at least tried to reset your device as new and retest your battery life?

    I want 7 hours. There is no LTE in my area. I do charge my phone around 20% and after 100% I let it trickle for 10 minutes. I run it down once a month

    7 hours is easy on this phone. I'm on 9 hours usage right now. Don't understand why there are a handful of people that get bad battery life. Battery is one of the big selling points for me.

    Might be an issue with your device. I get 7 hours easy. My average is probably around 12.

    You mentioned that there is no LTE in your area - have you turned LTE off in the settings? If it's on, it could be continuously searching for an LTE signal which DOES drain battery.

    Like others have stated, you should be able to get 7 hours out of your device. I'm a heavy user and I get 12 with my 4S easily. Today, I'm going on 17 hours with moderate use. I would go through every phone setting as well as app option/preferences just in case you have a rogue app or an app that is using too much of the location services. I would also check on social networking apps that might be updating constantly behind the scenes. If all else fails, reset and restore as new via iTunes.

    I know how to conserve my battery. Cellular data is the main culprit

    If you're an expert on conserving the battery, then why ask the question?

    Try restoring your phone and setting it up as new to see if it'll get you through the day easier.

    I agree with factory reset. If you know what you are doing to conserve battery there isn't much more to tell you.

    This is my second iPhone 5. A lot of people use their iPhone 5 differently. How people max out at 8 hours+ I don't really know.
