    Reason being is it seems like the battery runs way too fast on the 5s. I loved my 5 and the 5c is basically a 5. I love the colors and I dont need a touch id and I dont need the super fast processor and stuff when I am so used to the 5. Whats your guys batteries like on an average day and is the 5c an overall good phone?

    If you think that you'll enjoy using an iPhone 5C more than your iPhone 5S then go for it. I currently have the iPhone 5 and my battery life is excellent, but it was also excellent with the iPhone 4S I had prior. As for the average battery life of the 5C or any iPhone , that will depend on the way you use it. The first thing I would change would be the brightness level on the display and then gauge the battery life from there. If it improves, great, if not, look at the apps and / or services that may be using location services more than they should.

    Perhaps turn off location services altogether and re-enable them only when you need them.

    I have both, honestly the battery life is the same really. It depends on what you are doing on it, signal strength, brightness, etc.

    I'm seeing about the same if not a little better battery between my 5s and the 5. The 5c is a nice phone, if your not happy with the 5s give the 5c a shot.

    Ventana654, before you trade in your phone for poor battery life, try resetting it.

    I got my 5s with excellent battery life. Then one day I took it to an Apple-authorized place to get my screen checked. They reset it and ever since then my battery has been pretty poor. Two days ago I decided to reset it again and guess what - the problem got fixed!! Now my battery life is back to normal. And "normal" for Apple is pretty great!

    Try this, it could help.

    How much percentage would you think is acceptable? I mean I don't see the 5c getting any better than the 5s? Got a screen shot of your usual battery life?
    This was my best so far I was actually trying to kill my phone.

    Maybe try downloading carat. Peter (of imore) said he used it and found that Facebook was using so much battery that if he just got rid of it he'd save like 2 hours of battery.
