Mine looks good so far. I am in an LTE area for AT&T. Twitter Facebook and 2 push mails all syncing. Battery looks great

I'm on vzw and used GPS and Iheart radio for a 30 minute drive, my battery life went from 100 to 82. Was using LTE the entire time. Just reporting, not sure if that is normal as I'm coming from a gnex.

GPS has always been a battery drain on iphone. You really need to have it plugged in to a car charger when using turn by turn...

Pretty good battery life. I'm in a vzw lte area and battery is lasting through the day with 2 emails, twitter, fb sync, and some web browsing.

Battery is amazing. I've had Android and Windows 7 and never had this good of battery life. Picked my phone up at 8am yesterday and it was down to 1% about 1am the next morning. Thats a day of texting, web surfing, downloading apps, and playing with a new phone. Good stuff.

Did a full charge over night. Took off charge at about 0845 this morning or so. I have 5 hours, 45 minutes on standby, 3 hours and 12 minutes of usage for a total of 8 hours and 57 minutes and I am at 64% battery life left. That's with LTE turned off since I don't get LTE in my area, Facebook, twitter, email, iMessage, app store, sports apps......plus i close all apps in the tray when i'm done with them. Not too shabby, look forward to seeing how long it takes for it to just die.

From 100% battery yesterday, I hit 62% before I put it on the charger for the night. I had about 3 ? hours of actual usage (and I think around 5 hours stand by).

I fully expect the battery life to rock once I'm over the honeymoon period and not using it almost every waking minute.

I averaged about 6 hours of usage on the 4S; from what I'm seeing from my own usage and others on here, I expect to see around 8 hours of usage with this new phone (which is exciting!).

I had really good results with mine. Took it off charge at 8am this morning. Used about 5 hours stand by time and the rest I've been using it for games. Email. Surfing the web and I'm just hitting below 60%. That's awesome.
