    Its good, but close Facebook when you are not using by double tapping the home button, otherwise your phone battery is great. I have a mophie juice pack for my 5 because i go on it a lot

    Don't do this. It'll worsen your battery life. Every time facebook needs to refresh (quite often) its needs to completely reopen the app versus just resuming it if you don't force quit it. iOS manages recent apps very well and without special permissions like a streaming music service, it won't run in the background.

    The battery life looks fine, low signal absolutely kills battery so it's to be expected that you're only getting around 6 hours of usage. And yes, facebook does use a lot of battery too, but don't force quit your apps if you are doing it now.

    Thanks for the reply. Ya I heard that too. Iphone can manage it well so we dont have to close the apps quite often. Reopen the apps may kill your battery faster. That is what I heard.

    When you are in a low signal situation, the phone increases the transmit power in an attempt to improve the connection.

    I thought it was only me. My battery life is terrible on 8.1.2 5C.

    Yay, a Malaysian! :D

    I've a regular iPhone 5 (which is identical to the 5c in the internals anyway, except a slightly smaller battery), and I normally get a usage time of around 7 hours and a standby time of 1 day 2 hours.

    It was replaced by Machines under the lock screen and battery recall programme.

    ----------

    Does your area have stable Maxis LTE coverage? Sometimes I disable LTE and find that on 3G, my battery life goes straight to hell.

    In where I used to live (Saujana near the Subang airport), 3G was pretty bad but LTE was quite stable. So leaving LTE disabled only drained my battery.

    I've since moved to Melbourne, where coverage is good everywhere.

    Back in my native QT in NZ, coverage is almost nonexistent though.

    If a thread gets old or there are no replies, leave it as it is or post something useful, don't bump the thread. This is MacRumors not a sh***y forum.
