Looks like a battery "leak" since the usage and standby are almost the same.

See my attached picture. Almost the same use, albeit with almost 2x battery. Might be something with your usage. Always have music playing, 3G on for the majority of the time. Auto brightness.

4h43 usage,17h05 standby and its at 29%,it was draining like crazy on 3G(using iMessage and text plus and 3G in my house is very poor,like 1/2 bars) dropping 1% every 3 minutes so i reset network settings and then reset all definitions and got me that(disclaimer I did sync a new song with my mac and it got an extra 2% after:36% pre-sync->38% after-sync) so I'd say its pretty good if you take into account the pre-resetting drain(it was restored from a backup) and I'm on wifi so its pretty good i think,I think i can get 5h usage with 15/16h on standby if I use 3G only so thats pretty good on my book.

Here's a screenshot of my average. Take note it was only plugged in for a minute or two since last charge.

Those of you complaining about battery drain issues, have you all done an iTunes update/restore? If not I would recomend doing that, seemed to solve my battery issues going from 6.0.1 to 6.0.2 on my iPhone 5.

I did an iTunes update for 6.1 last night and let the battery drain down to 1% before plugging it in to charge. So far today i am at 1 hour 11 minutes usage, and 2 hours 6 minutes stand buy and battery is down to 92%.

Not bad did some emailing facebook and twitter this morning with a few text as well. I also work in an area with spotty wifi and no cell reception most the day so it is always looking for some sort of signal.

If I have time later today I will post back with more details

Just my $.02

On this sample size???

No problems here (4s, 73% remaining, 2:10 usage, 16:11 standby, last put on charge yesterday evening). Pretty much the same as before.

Just posting how long the battery usage time and the percentage really is useless.

Exactly what kind of usage is it? Anything involving GPS? What you are doing makes a huge difference.

i noticed with ios 6.0.2 i was only getting 5.5 hours of usage on my iPhone 5 and then i did a hard reset meaning holding down the home button and the power button and my battery life improved drastically, got around 8+ hours of usage after doing that and has gotten better so far with iOS 6.1

I just downloaded onavo to test it out to see how well it works with saving data, and am streaming pandora in the background, Facebook, Tweetbot, Instagram, and email. Anyone and everyone would want better on a 4S, but frankly, this isn't bad. Considering I'm doing a little more than I usually would to really test it out, usage should be on par with 6.0, which is what I was on before.

100% at 8:30am, 77% at 3:16pm. Upgraded over wifi. I'll give it a day or two before I decide to restore. I think it's crazy to have to restore when you have the option of over the air upgrades.

Saying that, some days 6.0.1 would have the same battery drain, although a little worse.
Other days I would have Standby of 4 hours, usage around 1 hour and it would be around 50%. Gonna give it a few days before deciding.
