    I usually play games like jetpack joyride or like the simpsons tapped out. Games that aren't too graphic intensive. I currently have a 3gs and it drains really fast. 15-20 minutes on it is more than 10% battery drain. This is why i no longer download apps:(:(. How well does the iphone 5's battery handle gaming?

    What kind of usage stats are you currently getting? There are too many variables to consider before answering this question. To give you an idea... Game playing is about 50% of my usage and at 10% battery life I have 6.5 hours of usage, and 24 hours standby. You can compare your 3GS to this I suppose.

    Usage questions are going to vary and questions like this are impossible to answer. Games don't all use the same resources and they don't all use them in the same way so they don't all consume power in the same way. If you're wondering what your usage will be like then get the device and take for a spin. Return before your return period closes.
