    I have a blue 32 5c, and its great and all for my needs, but I think it is a bad unit because it died at 4p today after being fully charged overnight and unplugged at 9a. I didn't use it for much (no vids or games) and it was warm (even really warm at times) when I was just talking and texting and playing with settings.

    I will be taking it back, but was just wondering if anyone else was having this problem.

    Maybe it is a defective unit. All the reviews show no major difference between the 5C and the 5 in terms of battery life.

    No heat or battery life issues with my Fiancee's new 5C...I'd take it back...heat is never a good sign...Her phone has been through 2 complete charge cycles now without problems.

    After a few calibrations ( charge to 100% then let die) it should be better.

    Check your location services. I find when my battery is dropping quickly, and it feels warm. Something has activated and is keeping the GPS radio on.
