Last night it was like 90% and now its 69%
Just you. Battery life is awesome for me.
Mine wasn't quite that bad but I woke up this morning to a battery that had gone down a lot without any use over night. I have most of the known "battery hogs" turned off or disabled. Its the same settings as my old iPhone 4 but something seems to be draining it when its getting no use.
Well, you are probably playing with it a lot more than you normally would, hence the faster drop.
Mine is much better than my 4S thus far.
Both were locked last night. 5 drained 3% (network and wifi on)
My 4S drained 6% (no network) wifi on.
Definitely dropping much quicker than my iPhone 4, I'd say like twice the rate.
New batteries need to be broken in before they will work their best. Add to that its a new device with new settings. Just wait and see.
my iPhone 5 was 100% when I went to bed at midnight. At 8am is was down to 50%. A few standard issue apps we open in the background, but nothing big. I did a restore from a iPhone 4 iOS6 iCloud backup when setting up the iPhone 5. I think something is up...
Agreed, my 5 is significantly better than my 4S. Before I went to bed, I wanted to get the iPhone to turn off so I could charge it up overnight; I streamed a netflix movie over WiFi with the sound at full volume through the speaker, screen around 50% and auto-brightness on. It started at 6% and didn't die until 52 minutes into the movie. I don't know if that had something to do with calibration, but I'd be very impressed if that ended up being in line with the true battery.
I feel like its slightly (very slightly) less than my 4s was. Then again, I haven't gone thru a full drain till cycle yet.
Its probably because you did a restore from your old phone. What I did is set up as new and the battery life is amazing so far.
Battery is pretty darn good for me! I was telling one of my friends about it. Maybe it was a good idea that Apple didn't come out with LTE last year. The battery life would probably been horrendous. Also, I set up as a new phone and not from a backup. New phone = New Start
I'm pissed everyone is saying they have awesome battery. I came from an iPhone 4 and my battery would last from 7AM till 11PM easily, doing Facebook/twitter/texting throughout the day.
I get this iPhone 5, fully charged at 7AM, its now 10:30AM and its at 65%. Wtf gives.
Are u using 3G or LTE? Which carrier?
Same here, man.
First of all you need to calibrate your battery.
Second of all, you need to check your notification settings. If you push all your apps then you're going to see a significant loss in battery life.
I dropped about 20% last night. 3G and wifi on.
Never do a restore from an old device. Restores keep old settings etc.
My iPhone 5 finally died off with 20+ hours of standby and 7-8.5 hours of usage time. That was part of my calibration
Bad battery on 5 compared to 4
Yeah, same here. I had a 4 on AT&T and now my 5 is on Verizon. The battery is draining much faster than it ever did on my 4. I unplugged it around 8am this morning. It's now 1030 and battery is at 81%. Basically means my phone will be dead by 8:30. I'm not using it more than my old one.
I'm using LTE on AT&T.
Usage: 1 Hour, 46 Min
Standby: 4 Hours, 16 min
I had iCloud, push, everything on my iPhone 4 that was 2 years old and I would last all day plus some.
Run your battery down until it turns off. Then charge it for 4-8 hours. That will help.
It's just you. After lifting my battery is normally ~60% and it was 90% with ip5.
I set this up as a new phone. Also I calibrated by fully charging out of the box and letting it deplete by itself yesterday. (That took about 4 whopping hours). I had to charge it 3 times on launch day.
Yea i restored it from my iPhone 4. Should i restore it and set it as new? I restored it because i wanted my old messages.
