    Hello, I ve got iPhone 5, white, 32GB, since last friday.

    And I am experiencing quite an issues, because, for example today, I am using my phone for an hour. Just sent few iMessages to my girlfriend and check for Dragonvale for about two mins and battery life is from 50% down to 25%. My brightness is on almost the lowest position. It can not be ok.

    Not to mention I have got the light leak near the power button.

    Any ideas? There is no Apple Store in our country, no genius bar etc.

    Thanks

    It sounds to me like you have a faulty battery. Is this a consistent, or occasional issue? Have you considered a battery replacement?

    Sometimes I have this issue and after a restart it works again :) Try it and let us know.

    Actually I tried to calibrate the battery, and it worked.

    It was so strange, because my battery life was draining so fast, but when it reached 1% I could play youtube videos for 1 hour :D

    Now after 0%-100% complete cycle recharge, it works just fine.

    I am just a bit dissapointed with the light leak, but no big deal :)
