    This replacement 5 has amazing battery life. I'm not sure it doesn't have a reactor inside:)

    All these battery posts are useless without stating what type of usage you've done. There is simply way too many variables.

    The iPhone 5 does have an awesome battery life. Significantly better than my old LTE Galaxy Nexus, and a bit better than my Galaxy S3.

    It's not meant to be small.. It's called a phablet for a reason.

    I heard for black ops 2, they actually removed the "riot shield" and added "note 2 shield" for better shielding

    I heard for Iron Man 3, there will be a prototype Iron Man suit made out of Note 2's.

    I'm impressed with the battery life but I'm not extremely impressed with the screenshot in the above post...

    Why not? That would extrapolate to over 14 hours usage. I agree the first 10-20% are misleading. I often see my battery % go down very slowly at first, then it always corrects as I get closer to 50%. Still, nearly 2 hours at 87% is very good.

    I get a pretty steady 8 hours use without music, I'm not complaining. I did get 10.5 hours one day but about 1.5 hours was music.

    Really? Maybe you glanced and didn't look at the numbers because the screenshot in the OP is suggesting being on track for 15hours of usage.
    Which I haven't seen.
    Reviews haven't seen.
    And even Apple doesn't claim.

    I guess just cause that's about where i'm at all the time. 10+ hrs usage time is not uncommon for me though I typically charge it as frequently as possibly now that I've done a couple of drain/fills.

    I didn't mean to bash the OP. Thanks for sharing the screenshot. I don't know that it warranted yet another thread though.

    Or may be you like half baked phones with no wifi direct, bluetooth transfer and mass storage mode.

    I have an iphone4 and I'm at a day and a half for stand by time with about a little more usage at around 80%. I can't imagine how great the iphone 5 is, but I can tell you that my four is amazing.

    Why when peeps post pics of there battery usage they never show the bottom where it says if the phone had been plugged in since being fully charged? #
