I feel like the battery on my iPhone isn't that great. Right now my phone has been on standby for 9 hours and 16 minute and the usage is 3 hours 28 minutes since the last full charger. I'm already at 19%. How is everyone's experience with the battery life so far?

No exact data, but mine has been great, especially when compared to my iPhone 4. The 4 went through the day and was usually at 25% by the time I plugged it in at night. The new 5 hasn't been any lower than 50% at night, and I don't think my usage has changed. If anything, I have used the 5 more as I have set it up and messed with all the setting and options.
