Turning off notifications will only have an effect if you usually receive a lot of messages. The phone will vibrate less often.

i was having great battery until i got off wifi and started using cell data. 6 hours max usage ;[

everyone can have grrrrr8 battery life NOT using the phone but i wish we got 8 hours actual usage. using maps shoudlnt be 2.5x the rate of battery drain >_> using facebook should take the same ammount of energy as simple safari pages so i dont know theres room for optimizations.

Not too happy with this to be honest. Guess I'm too used to the iPads long life. Need to carry my charger with me to work if I want to make it through the day.

Day 2 with new iPhone 5. This the usage since charging the phone fully. Screen brightness around %45 and not doing anything heavy. Texts, some phone calls and a lot of web browsing and tinkering. Some video here and there but nothing more than a few minutes each time.

Is this normal? Should it be better? This is my first iPhone so I don't know a whole lot

is this considered "normal"? celluar off, Wi-Fi turned on for most of the day, only off at night, around 30-1hr +of gaming, a hour or two on music, texts, calls and rest is web browsing.

It's my first iPhone as well, but six hours use is what Apple promised no? So it would be fine in my book. I'm not getting anything more than four at the moment, so I'm a bit concerned.

it just keeps getting better and better. this was with a lot more LTE than wifi (I'd say about 70% LTE and 30% wifi). Netflix, text, web, a few games, Pandora at the gym.

It shut off with about 11hrs and 25mins usage but I didn't get a screen shot of it.

Yes, this is normal. IIRC Apple has said 8-9 hours of usage. Not to mention you have over a days worth of standby.

Is everyone force closing apps? Or are you just letting iOS run its course?

I was off work today and used my phone a lot - games, messaging, facebook etc. It was constantly getting locked and unlocked. I'm fairly happy with what I got - over 10 hours. I did notice that it hung in at 1% for ages before it finally shut off though.

Did you put the very same apps and settings on your replacement?

My iPhone 5 battery life is awesome. Easily lasts two days. Turning off the Passbook location service helped the most.

My white iPhone 5 had excellent battery life but I got tired of the color because I usually get black. So I traded with a guy off of CL.. did our number swap at a Sprint store.

Now, this black one I have is getting pretty poor battery life. I've done everything mentioned in this thread with no luck. The guy didn't mention this to me and the deal was done through CL so i'm not going to call him back and request to trade back

My next question is, can I take this one to Apple and request a replacement? What does Apple do at the store to test the battery drain?

I took my iPhone 4 in just after I bought it because of the battery. All I noticed the genius doing what checking the usage stats on the phone. I didn't manage to get a replacement and can imagine it would be difficult to due to the fact that there are so many factors in determining how long a battery should last.

Yep the same setting.
1st phone charged it to full 100% battery then updated to 6.0.2 somehow messed up my phone battery calibration battery only lasted 2 hours max.

2nd replacement phone charged it to full 100% battery then updated to 6.0.2 same thing happening again battery lasted 3 hours max.

3rd replacement just did a straight update to 6.0.2. (NO FULL CHARGE TO 100%) battery currently lasting around 8 hours.
Still sitting at 100% after 7 hours standby.

Firmware 6.0.2 definitely has battery calibration issue.

Does anyone else have an issue with their their iPhone heating up when using? Is it normal? Wondering if that had something to do with my poor battery.

Edit: I'm at 2 hours of use with 3 hours of standby and I'm now at 60%. This is borderline ************. I'm going to try and restore my phone when I get off work. Hopefully that does something.
