    Hi

    Just wanted to ask everyone, roughly how long does your battery last on the iPhone 5 with moderate to heavy usage?

    I am use my phone regularly but whether I am on it all day or only at random times I still find I am only getting less than a day out of the battery life( maybe 18 hours)

    just wanted to know if this was average for other users

    I can't answer for everyone that has an IP5 but from what I hear everyone talking about and seeing their screenshots along with my IP4S there should not be any reason that you should not get a full day of battery usage from your phone. If it is fully optimized and you are doing everything you can to get opitimum battery usage you should be ok.

    Take a moment to read my guide as well:

    Mine usually goes for 12-14 hours off the charger before needing a recharge. I use it pretty heavily during the daytime.

    I am off my charger at 6 am everyday. I usually always get the 10 percent notification at about 4 pm. I don't think thats all that bad. I use my phone a lot during the day. Back when I was only on EDGE, it would last me all damn day.

    When I first got the iPhone 5 (i.e. before iOS 6.1.2) 7-8 hours on wifi, 4-5 hours on cell [USAGE] - standby anywhere from 12-24 hours

    After 6.1.2 (and 6.1.3 and 6.1.4): 5-6.5 hours if on wifi, 3-3.5 hours on cell [USAGE] - standby anywhere from 12-24 hours

    I ran a test the other day and I took my phone off the charger at 4:30am and it was at 2% at 8:00pm. I used it for navigation twice (to and from work), listening to podcasts, push email and other regular use through out the day.

    yep... I have never had a complaint about my battery life. Of course I am a stickler for closing apps out of the mutli-tasking tray. The only app I have in there running most of the time is the FitBit app so it will sync in the background.
