This is not a thread about which phone is better. I am not asking that. I need your help. I am currently using AT&T iPhone 5 that is unlocked (as of yesterday). It is also jailbroken with update 6.1.2. I have been unsatisfied with the iPhone's battery life from day one. I got mine in Oct., so I have had it for a while. The standby battery life is like no other phone I have ever seen. It is great, but when you need to use the iPhone it is a whole new ball game. Here is what I do on a daily bases on my iPhone 5: check email, send between 25-50 text messages, check gizmodo and engadget at least 5 times a day, and finally check tapatalk app which is connected to this forum. As you can see I am not really a heavy user at all. Most of the time I will do quick charge in the afternoon to make sure I make it through the day. On Wed. of this week I just let it go to see if I could make it through the day and it died at 9:30 pm. Now I am ok with this if I am at work and can charge the phone, but if I am out and am not near a charger this is not expectable for my use. I have tried all that I know for the battery. I have restore several times, and restored as new because that is Apple's answer to every problem. I have tried removing apps on the jailbreak and that does not work. My battery life was the same before I jailbroke as it is now, so I know it has nothing to do with the jailbreak. I am getting about 5 1/2 hours of usage on a charge. Almost 6. Ok so here is how I need your help. Is there anything I else I can do? Has anyone else had these problems and fixed them? I do not believe there is a problem with my iPhone. I just think the battery life is crap. A 1430 mAh battery just does not cut it in todays smartphone market. I have looked into battery cases, but the Mophie helium got bad reviews and it does not look very protective. The Mophie Air is way to much and I have not see a review for it. The last one I have seen is the powerskin, but like the others it just makes the iphone look like crap. If there is nothing else that I can do should I head for the Note II? Much bigger battery, and I have heard a lot of good things about the battery life on it. Or should I keep the iphone 5, and just live with it? I did not start this for people to argue which phone is better. We have enough of those threads here already. I really just want some help. I am looking for your opinions, so I really don't care if you have a bais. I just want to hear what you think.
