    iPhone 5s running 7.1.1 moderate use, unplugged right before going to bed. I do not force close apps, do not do any battery saving practices besides turning off Bluetooth. Auto brightness enabled.

    I used to own a 32GB 5s and the battery life was amazing- almost a day and a half of moderate usage, a day easy with heavy use. I traded it for a note 3, then traded that for a 64GB 5s and the battery life is way worse. I think it might be because I was on 7.0.4 on my old one and this ome came out of the box already on 7.1.1 and potentially worse life because of the update. Moderate usage kills the phone a few hours before I get home now

    TL;DR: Battery life has taken a dive since my other 5s.

    Well, I've tried everything on my phone, but never succeeded to get past 7 hours battery usage on a full charge. So if someone claims longer usage, I sincerely doubt the way they've used the phone.
    If I never play videos or games on it, I could get past 7 hours, but for me those things are usually what I do on my phone.

    What is your usage like?

    Around 7 hours tops on wifi en max 6 outside on 3G/4G.

    But I never see the %1 as I always charge it before it reaches 30%. And I always carry a external battery with me.

    That's not bad, and you have a portable battery. There's really nothing to complain about...

    Oh, I'm not complaining. In the contrary, I'm really glad with my battery life. I have 125 apps and Background App Refresh enabled and location services enabled for those supporting it. I'm addicted to Swarm (Foursquare).

    So I don't see any reason for being disappointed in my battery life

    I've got a 5s and right now I'm at 15% left 5 and a half hours on screen 14 hours and 20 minutes of standby. That's with my regular usage which I'd consider on the heavier side

    My battery life is pretty horrible, I use a mophie plus (120%) and I go through that and the phone with just texting, moderate browsing and playing music for about an hour.

    I think this is a big concern for Apple phones, they have yet to increase the battery from its predecessors, if they plan to come out with a 4.7 inch and a 5.5 they better put batteries comparable to those of the samsung devices. 1570 mAh does not cut it anymore.

    This is mine.
    40% 3G 50% wifi.
    Twitter, tapatalk, a bit of Facebook, voice calls, FaceTime. 10% spotify. No 4G.
    Push always on, wifi always on, 3G always on.
    Location services on (not all of them!)
    Very good 3G signal cause of the 3G over Internet spot in my house.

    Tell me your opinion!

    My standby and usage times are the same. I've done everything the internet websites have suggested and they still haven't changed. I reset the settings. I really don't want to reset my device and lose all my stuff and have to start all over again. I didn't get all my music from itunes and I have to search for it on an external drive somewhere.

    If a hard reset doesn't fix it, the only option left is to wipe everything and restore from backup. That's what I finally had to do, and it did fix the problem.

    The club of people who are not happy with their battery life. It's not an actual club. It's an imaginary one. It's generally used to say that when two or more people agree on the same thing.

    You automatically join a group by saying out loud your frustrations or satisfaction about a service or device or even an event.
