It hasn't displayed this type of behaviour this whole time on the GM so I'm confused. WTF.

No for about an hour I was on cellular.

I had WiFi and LTE, AirDrop (which needs Bluetooth on), parralax and dynamic wallpaper all on all day.

Is that good?

Mileage will vary with use.

Honestly, I have seen no change in battery performance from iOS6 to 7 on my iPhone 5. Not to mention it would probably be at 45% if I just didn't have a 30 minute phone call while surfing the web at the same time.

Wow you got like 11 hours and still have battery left. Crazy.

Yup, got the same usually on iOS6. Yesterday I got 14 hours and had battery life left. You just got to tweak some settings. Now then again in the past hours I've lost 19% but I had a 30 min call while surfing the web, and using wifi.

Your usage is mainly listening to music?

Does being on Wifi drain the batter more than using just the cellular data?

I second this question. Music counts as usage but consumes hardly no battery life. If that's not the case, how do you have ALL day to be using your phone? Assuming you get 8 hours of sleep, that gives you a 16 hour day. Which means you used your phone for 90% of your day. Bit extensive if you ask me.

There are, sadly, some apps that don't follow the rules and continue to kill your battery after it is dismissed. Background processes in iOS are supposed to only be for GPS enabled apps that ask permission and audio apps. But some apps decide to continue to run at full power even after they are closed. I have a few that if I forget to remove them from previous apps tray they will continue to murder my battery.

This is my daily usage:
- Listen to music from about 6:30AM-5PM at work
- Internet usage on breaks, on the bus, and sometimes during my shift
- Texting all day long
- Playing Temple Run
- Making phone calls

Right now at 20% with usage at 12hrs and standby at 14hrs.
