iPhone 5 losing considerable battery life when on standby

Hi,

I'm not sure if it's me but the battery life on my new iPhone 5 seems to be shocking. When left on standby overnight only connected to wifi, nothing active in the background it loses 4-6% and when at school i looked at my phone an hour later and it had lost 2%(3g off). This cannot be normal, my ipod touch 4g wasn't this bad and both my parents iphone 4 and 4s arent this bad.

Should i be concerned?

Thanks

I heard doing a DFU restore fixes the issue with the batt problem...I'm going to back my phone up, do the DFU and restore from backup and see if that helps out.
