    I was wondering what others get on average...
    So I can see if mine still works properly. ;)

    Probably about 3-4 hours.

    I'm on 1 hour 27 mins right now, with 44%

    Depending on how heavy I'm using it, 4-6 hours. If light usage I could probably get 10-12 hours.

    When I'm at home all day, on wifi, I can get 6-7 hours. About two thirds of that when using 3G/4G.

    I am sorry but this thread is useless and should be terminated.

    Why because it is sooooooo subjective to where, signal, WiFi, etc...

    All we are going to get out of this is 3 or 4 hours to 2 or 3 days .

    No one will know but you, we don't do or go where you go.

    Even me, if I go in a big building. In the basement with my Android I could get 3 hours total,
    If I stand on top of the same building maybe 2 days , using the exact same usage.

    Get the point

    Usage, not standby. There's no way you get 2-3 days usage on LTE.

    Of course it depends on usage but this has been the worst iPhone for me. I get maybe 2-3 hours. And the SN didn't come up on the recall list.

    Too many variables. If you post YOUR times in here and what you did during those times, we could probably tell you if its normal

    Approx 6 hours continuous Wifi-only web browsing.
    Approx 2.5 hours continuous 3G web browsing
    Approx 4 hours out & about usage including some phone calls, some SMS and some 3G browsing.

    With iOS6 my iPhone 5 delivered approx 2-3 hours more battery life in all situations.

    Right now I'd say 2-3 hours of LTE browsing and very light app use (calculator & pilot logbook).

    The battery dies around 20% as well or goes from ~30% to 5% in a second etc.
