    I am down 15% battery with light use in 2 hours, is that normal? Seems like it is going down faster than my iPhone 5.

    That's fast! I have not experienced a drop like that. For me I can easily make it through a full day although my usage does vary.

    Same here. I recommend the OP go through each and every settings, and specifically, the location services settings, and make necessary changes, if any.

    I would give it a couple charge cycles and if this continues definitely schedule a appointment with your local Genius Bar.

    Yes they will. Apple backs all its products, so long as you purchased it from a legitimate source.

    2 hours is not normal. I get about 6-8 hours, more on a good day.

    Not at all normal. Light use should yield you at least 5-6 hours...probably more.

    Apple covers their iPhone's, regardless of origin of purchase (within the states) within it's normal 1 year warranty period (or if Apple Care + was applied to it, extended times). You can bring it to the Apple store even if you bought it from an individual...it doesn't make a difference.

    What do you consider light usage?
    It's not normal for what I consider light usage, but your definition of light maybe different than mine.

    As already mentioned, it's all about what "light use" is. Last night I went to sleep at 10:30 PM and when I put my phone down, I was
    at 92%. I did not put it on the charger. I woke up at exactly 6:30AM and it was at 84%. I had 4 new emails. Just the nature of the beast.

    Same scenario with my iPhone 5 after most nights. I don't think it's a problem.

    I get about the same as you. Maybe even less. My standby is awesome. Just writing this post alone, I lost 1%.

    What were you doing with your phone ? Playing any games? Or just the usual, browsing and calls?

    I just made a few phone calls, each lasting a few minutes, whatsapp, Facebook. A little surfing on safari. No games, videos or music at all

    Btw, is it true that the A7 helps save battery over the A6 due to its better efficiency? On the other hand, some says the 64 bit takes a heavier toil on the battery. I think I've been reading too much haha. Think I'm just not satisfied with my 5s battery life.
