    I was very interested and curious about your battery life but for some reason I can't see the attached picture you uploaded. Would you check that out?
    Hmmm. Doesn't seem like I can view it on my iPhone but I can view it on my iPad.

    What about this one?

    Thanks! I don't know the reason I couldn't see his picture, I could see all the other ones from the thread. But thank you!

    Mine seems a little bit better than my 5, but it's not a huge improvement. I'm just waiting for the day when true all day long battery is a reality.

    I noticed tonight that the standby time is amazing. Played a concert tonight did a 2 hour rehearsal sound check and a 3 hour show. My phone stayed in my pocket the whole time and stayed on 99%.

    Yes, after enjoying it for few minutes I left it to recharge and took a nap.

    No, I don't play games on smartphones. I only streamed 2 YouTube videos and those were on WiFi. Brightness is the default settings, I like it that way, Apple knows better than me

    My usage was based on browsing, BBMing, Voice calling and finalizing the phone setup. Over 3G

    What I wanna know is why does iOS use so much battery when wifi is on. In the android world it's all about having wifi on to conserve battery
    Pretty sure that's the opposite...

    This is not necessary.

    First day, first full charge.
    Disconnected this morning at around 8am, plugged back at around 5pm and installed 7.0.3.

    This usage was from 8am to 5pm all day in LTE or 4G, wifi off, BT off and hardcore data with FB, online videos, iMore forums, IG and even 10 minutes of the Apple event, made some calls and some texts as well. Location is off, no parallax effect, background apps on manual and screen illumination around 30-40% . Not bad for a first day but have my hopes it'd get better.

    it does.. It took 4 days for my battery to level out at about 20+ hours stand by, I hope 7.0.3 helps even more.

    I charged at 19% during the apple event. Had location services on most of the time coming home from vacation.

    Can't really tell since you plugged it in and it recharged partially. What was the usage when you were at 19%?

    Agreed. Li-ion batteries need no "conditioning", unlike NiCd and NiMH batteries. See here, at "Contents 10.1 Conditioning".
