    Playing a graphic intensive game for an hour drains my battery to 50% on a full charge.
    Instagram and texting drains about 1% every few minutes. I'm guessing it's normal but having a very weak celluar signal will drain my battery on standby.

    I am on At&T and the LTE coverage is worse than 3G or EDGE. Therefore I believe it is always trying to find signal and the battery life sucks. In general I get around 3 hours before needing to charge it.

    I'm in a good LTE area and my battery life is good, basically the same as my iPhone4 had, if not a little bit better.

    Lasts all day - think it should last at least 2 days. But ill take all the features over battery life (well at least give me 1 solid day of battery life).
