    Had a bizarre quirk on my iphone 5 with ios 7. Was at 57% on my battery, rebooted, and it was at 35%.

    I'll chime in. Purchased my 5s space grey 64gb Friday morning and I must say that the battery on the 5s is far superior to my 4s. My 4s was dead by noon on a daily basis and the 5s lasted me till about 5pm today.
    That's a significant difference for me. I will still be getting a charger case though :). It's a MUST for any phone IMO .....

    I took mine off the charger around 10 pm yesterday and I put it back on around 9 pm tonight. 23 hours standby with almost 7 hours of reported usage. I am very happy with this coming from a Razr HD which would last a day or two easily!

    Battery is holding up a bit better than my 4S

    Had it fully charged at 7:30pm -- used it, made calls, made many texts, browsed many a website, used the GPS for driving around, had bluetooth on as well. Took photos, played in burst mode, watched youtube videos, watched instagram videos, listened to a podcast and 5 hours later I'm at 36%

    I feel like I would be at 20% or under with my 4S with that type of usage.

    Did it reboot by itself? My 5 did that for a while. I took it to the genius and was told it was a defective battery. They ended up replacing my battery.

    I manually rebooted. First time it happened like that and was with ios 7. Guessing ios 7 needed to recalibrate battery.

    My battery experiences have been good while on wifi but if it has to do a lot of 4g -> 3g -> wifi search then the battery isnt holding up very well.
