    Can report improvements as well ( iPhone 5 ). Very happy about it.

    BTW, how can I prevent the "Stocks" app from running ? I don't need it on the iPhone and it still consumes about ~ 7% of the battery.

    More or less the same. If it seems shorter these few days, it's likely because I am playing around with my iPhone 5s more. :p

    Wow that's terrible battery life. My iPhone 5 usually clocks around 7 hours of usage.

    It's Notification Center. Remove it as a widget, and it should stop using battery :)

    For me, no, worst iOS ever i'd say , 28% battery left , 5 hours 18 minutes use , 1 day 3 hours standby.

    haven't been using my phone to call anyone or doing anything wild, i have been checking my mails mostly and responding to texts, noticed the calendar is sucking up all my battery next to my mails.

    with iOS 7 my iPhone 5 could easily go for 3 days , now ill have trouble just to get to two, in fact i don't think ill get to two days.

    So all in all terrible new iOS

    Battery life has been great for me. As always I can get through 24 hour day with at least 75% battery remaining.

    I operate on a 24 hour schedule. Up 24 hours, sleep 4 or 5 and up 24 hours. Just the schedule of my life.

    I only plug in when I sleep.

    My phone never drops below 75% charge. Never has. And I use it frequently throughout my 24 hour days. Texting, photos, phone calls, browsing Internet, emails, etc.

    And it checks 3 gmail accounts, ymail, and facebook in background whole time.

    IPhone 5 w/ 16 GB

    I upgraded from 7.1.1 to 8 through iTunes on mac. Skipped 7.1.2

    Yes, I'm wondering where to file my complaint. Terrible to be able to get through whole day and still have 75% battery left.

    Miss my iPhone 3 that died completely after sending only 3 or 4 text messages.

    Bring back the iPhone 3 development team. My electric company misses them.
