    Default iPhone 5 battery
    I need to see what's everyone's battery life looking like on iPhone 5. When i first got my phone I activated from my backup. My battery was lasting about 6 hours of usage time. Now I restored and did a fresh install and currently at 3 hours and 11 mins of usage ad have about 40% battery left. I think it's gone down since I restored. What's everyone's average so far?

    Damn I ended up with 5 hours and 31 mins of usage until my phone died. Also I'd like to make a note I have LTE turned off. 11.5 hours on standby. Something must be up with my phone.

    yes something is definitely an issue, you probably have to return it to apple and get a new one..

    have you tried to do a simple restore to see if there is a slight chance its a software issue?

    if you havent, I would suggest you do that first before bringing it to apple for warranty replacement

    I don't see why, I'm doing my average 4G(not lte) daily tasks on mine starting from 10am up to 6-8pm and still end up with at least 10%. I'm getting pretty darn good battery life, I'm on a Verizon iPhone but with straight talk as the carrier.

    Yeah I restored it once but I'll try it one more time and see if there's any improved battery. I always do a fresh restore so I dont see what other issue it might be.

    May not be the actual phone I've seen a lot of people complaining of horrible battery life ever since updating to iOS6. Could be a factor.

    Yeah I've been leaning towards software but other people with the same iPhone 5 and the same iOS 6 have better battery life than I've had. So I'll test it out today and see what results I get. So far 2 hours of usage 3 hours of standby and I'm at 76%.

    Turn off Bluetooth if your not using it. I get good battery after I restore my iPhone from my iCloud back up.

    So I went into apple today and they have me a new phone. The guy helping me out said he didn't see anything wrong after diagnose. But I showed him all the pics I've taken of my daily battery consumption. He even showed me his phone and it was at like 6.5 hours of usage and over 24 hours of standby even WITH lte turned on. So I'll test it out tomorrow and see how this phone fares.
