I always have Bluetooth on because well I use Bluetooth in my car and I also tether from time to time. Also have push on for fb and use my camera a lot with In turn updates my photostream.
Battery life is relative to how your using your phone. I would say on a normal basis 7-9 usage is normal for iPhone 5. I've also heard Services that use CDMA use more battery than gsm services

When I have to turn off things just to get good battery life-- it's no longer an iPhone for me.
I'm hoping my 5 is at least better than my 4S with battery..
Anthony and Suby - has the 5 been at least better than the 4S given same usage?

iPhone 5 if I ever only get 6 it's because I was either using GPS turn by turn for a long trip or talking on my phone for hours or have had a long FaceTime call.
Typically when I am driving somewhere I use turn by turn ill plug my phone into my car charger just cause. Why not lol.
For me the iPhone 5 is better is every single way than any past Iphone. It's fast, light and the larger screen is very nice!!

Great Subby. That builds my confidence. I'm getting mine in a few days. I'm going to be moving my Sim card back and forth between my jailbroken 4S and my new iPhone 5.

When the jailbreak becomes available then I will make all the adjustments to using the 5 and I'm sure really enjoy it.

YouTube videos are mostly all in 4:3.. When they start playing you'll notice they don't fill the screen left to right (in Landscape - which is how videos are meant to be watched).. If they did fill the screen they'd have to be stretched and would cut off top to bottom. On a 4S screen and below in landscape they fill the screen left to right and are allowed to expand to their normal size using correct height and width. Now if you come accross a true 16:9 video it will be natural (almost) for the new ip5 screen. But they messed up 4:3 ratio with this screen (wasted space left to right in Landscape).
The only way to preserve proper 4:3 aspect ratio it to increase height and width of a screen - never just one. Samsung got this right in their Galaxy. Retaining 4:3 ratio, 95% of the industry's videos - is why Apple will definitely do at least one more screen increase in size for width. The 5 is an interim step and will be considered an 'oddball' one day in the future. The iPad and iPad mini are proper 4:3 ratio.

I even went to YouTube and played 5 different videos on my iPhone 5. Then to my iPad mini and every video on my iPhone for the screen with no clipping and no black bars where as on the iPad mini (which off the top of my head is 4:3 but not 100 percent sure I just know like all older iPhones is not 16:9) shows the exact same content but has bars on the top and bottom.
4:3 is a standard ratio for standard and 16:9 is for HD.
I mean I get it you don't like the iPhone 5 and that's fine. But it feels at this point you are trying to validate that with some facts. But the problem is the facts are HD is the standard now and 16:9 is the standard for HD video. People just don't want to accept change and making a phone taller an not wider is different that every phone produced.
To me it's the best of both world having it taller and not wider. Even though I have to stretch to tap the top left i can do it with one hand as apposed to the entire screen being bigger.
Like i said I just went in YouTube and looked at 5 random YouTube videos and all had the same results.

I know what you're talking about though. The fact that I haven't come across them leads me to believe that your point of all YouTube videos being mostly 4:3 might be exaggerated.
Many modern cameras record in the 16:9 ratio now. As more and more of these cameras get into the hands of users, more and more 16:9 videos are being uploaded to YouTube. So I think 4:3 has been engulfed in popularity by 16:9.
We see how the dated iPhone 4/4S screen letterboxes those wonderful HD videos (annoying!):

No. Not all are 16:9 by any stretch of imagination gents. You are seeing stretching and not recognizing it as such. As I says I'm a video pro and we see it instantly. 4:3 is still the mega standard. 16:9 is getting wider agreed. And it's about time. I want it to all go there. But I assure you the iP5 is an oddball screen - it won't be on the next version of the iPhone. But time will tell won't it! .. We've best a dead horse here - we're at the agree to disagree point. The main reason I held out on the 5 was because no jailbreak. But the screen doesn't meet my needs either. I was the first in line at my Apple Store thru all versions of the iPhone since the 2G.. This time no. The talker screen doesn't fit my hand.. That's me (and many others). I love the lighter weight. And I know I will get used to all other aspects once I have it. But I assure you I'm in no rush.
For those of you who aren't video pros - when a 4:3 video is displayed on a 16:9 screen the opposite of black bars happens.. The top and bottom get cut off to fill the screen's width. It's very noticeable to a trained eye. On YouTube things are getting magnified to fill screen. I may have confused you in my last post. If course you wouldn't see black bars.. That's the opposite problem: 16:9 on 4:3.
Have a good Christmas guys!
