Mine lasts all day and that's good enough for me. Way better the 4s battery or any android I've used.

Same battery life here on my third replacement. (FIRMWARE 6.0.2)
My latest stats says 6 hours 24 minutes
3 days 5 hours

That been used with 3 hours Tune in radio via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
And 2 hours long Netflix via Wi Fi
One hour long surfing On 3G and Wi-Fi

Brightness on 25%.
Location OFF.
LTE Turned OFF.( No LTE on three)
iCloud Turned ON.
No fetch on email.

Still have around 43% i probably will hit around 10 hours battery life. I'm very impressed after going through two phones with bad battery and software problems.

Absolutely! It depends entirely how the phone has been used.

Why do people post screenshots without also posting their screen brightness? Typically the people getting the 8 hours battery life on LTE that Apple advertises have their screen brightness on the minimum.

A lot of battery drain comes from location services and having the gps running. Also lowering screen brightness will help a lot.

I bet most of these screen shots of awesome battery life have be achieved with wifi being used most of the time.

Lets see some stats with LTE usage only.

Really impressed with the fives battery life.

Usage I get at home. Wasn't listening to music with the screen off either seeing as I don't have any songs on the phone yet.

As an extremely heavy user, I'm also extremely happy with the battery life. Huge improvement over the 4 to my experience.
