Hello,

The past few weeks, my iPhone battery has been drained really fast.

Currently, it's on 32%. This is the usage since last full charge:

Use: 2 hours, 12 minutes
Standby: 5 hours, 56 minutes

Backlight is on auto and about 40% in the scroller.

Is this normal?

Depends on how you use your phone. Do you stream videos? Talk on the phone? Text message? During the 2 hours? Because how you use it really affects your battery. Also do you close running applications in the background?

As above poster mentioned. Too many variables to gauge your battery usage. Too many apps turned on, movies, music, YouTube, testing Wifi speed, upload or download pictures, and the list goes on.

Talked to one owner today and he mentioned some days he gets a few hours of battery and later not using the iphone much he would get two days. It just depends and no one can help you when we are all different.

Today, I've only browsed the web and been on Facebook..

The problem is, I think my battery life is worser than when I bought the iPhone 5 back on launch day.



This isn't much "life" :confused:
