    An interesting read. Some things of note;

    Remember, those super duper battery times are always based on brightness at its lowest and always connecting to a full signal in a test lab. They are not real world times.

    If setting's were at default then brightness was set to the middle of the bar, like it is when you first get an iPhone, so it's not set to lowest.

    Anandtech already got 8 hours + of browsing on LTE. They set the brightness to 200 nits.

    Middle of nowhere

    Anandtech is the man whose scientific analysis I would take without question over any other reviewer. If he says he gets 8 hours on the iPhone 5 then I believe it.

    Name me one company whose reported times actually come close to 'real world' times. Apple is actually considered pretty good in this regard. :)

    I've been getting very good battery times thus far. The first day I got it I pretty much spent the entire day browsing/downloading apps/iMessage/etc. on LTE. I was at just under 7 hours of usage once it got down to about 10% that day. I have no doubt I could get a legit 8 hours browsing/data usage if I had a rock solid LTE signal all day.

    I don't know how Apple did it but I'm very impressed. They deserve big kudos for delivering great LTE times after having held off on it about a year longer than everybody was clamoring for.
