Not terrible but not great either. Lost like 8% just while sleeping. No LTE on. Wifi and 3G browsing. About 30 minutes of Turn by turn and an hour of phone calls. Lots of texting and no game usage.

Nearly 5 hours of usage and at 28%. I'm happy with that. I'm only on my 1st full charge cycle - drained it out of the box and charged to 100%. Very similar to my i4.

I set it up as new, use mostly LTE at home. Verizon 16gb white.

Not talking up the phone but with cellular reception like that its no wonder why your battery is taking a hit....

Not too happy with mine either 5.5 hrs usage, 12 hrs standby from 100%->1% but then again my reception is not the best but not as bad as your screen shot either

Not bad for being heavy usage.

That's incredible, actually. It seems that low service areas really sap the battery life.

Same battery issues here.

It seems obvious there's an issue.

I thought it was because I was using spotify, but my iPhone 4 never lost power like this.

So it's either a bad batch or an iOS6 issue.

I'm sure it'll work itself out soon with and update or an exchange

Great phone otherwise

It's interesting to see how many people didn't buy more iCloud storage.

I definitely would if I needed it because I love iCloud, but I haven't had to!

I'm not happy with the battery life either. While texting a friend of mine, the batter indicator was literally dropping at a rate of about 1% ever minute or two. I DID restore my phone from iCloud and I just "reset all settings" I did this while it was a 98% when it booted back up it was showing 100%

Interesting. I hope this helps, or i'll have to make an appointment with the genius bar.

I just pulled the trigger and decided to restore my iPhone to factory. I have nothing to lose (besides all my old text messages). I can't really judge battery until my phone dies completely. Since I restored it, the battery has gone down quite a bit, but I've been using it a lot (installing apps, changing settings, etc). We'll see what happens though.

Light to medium usage. Lots of texting and surfing, but no games or intensive applications and about 20 minutes of talk time. Mostly wi-fi, but LTE and bluetooth turned on. I'm pleased.

Pretty impressed... Setup as new.

41 minutes on calls
Mostly on wifi
A lot of text messages/iMessages
Web browsing on safari
Streaming pandora for about an hour
A couple YouTube videos
Took 2 pictures to test out cameras
Siri = disabled
Auto-brightness
Ran about 10 speedtests at various places I frequent

This basically simulates my normal use for the phone, so pretty happy with battery life thus far.

I also noticed my battery draining quickly yesterday...went from 90% out of the box at 2:30pm to shutting off at 9 pm. I charged it uninterrupted overnight, so we'll see how it does today.
Stangs are you in Houston? How's the LTE?

My iPhone dropped from 94% to 76% while I was sleeping (7hours)..

It also said 1+ hour of usage. I did get a bunch of text when I woke up. Does that count as usage?
