    This is the best battery life I had ever since iOS 6 TBH. My phone would have been dead hours ago if I was on the betas still. I'm loving this!

    Why not make a post in one of the ongoing ios 7 battery threads, instead of making another thread about it?

    I'll believe it once tens of thousands of units are in the field. Then we'll get real world feedback.

    I am not one to create a thread that tons have made, but i was so shocked by how good my battery was today that I didn't care and just did it haha. Apologize for making the community upset, just got excited over this since I have not had good battery since may/june. This is great for me, and I am happy I did a fresh install with just an icloud restore!

    I've been getting surprisingly great battery life. I leave the house at 7 AM and usually with beta 6 it's down to 45% or so by 3 PM, but 12 hours later it's still at a good 55%. Lovin it :D

    Still 50% left after 6 and half hours of usage including 3 hours of streaming videos from internet. iPad 3, performance is subpar but battery life is amazing

    iPhone 5, Sprint.
    Had iOS 7 beta 6
    Mid 2010 Macbook Pro
    iTunes 11.1 beta 1
    Backed up to the cloud, then backed up to iTunes.
    'Option+Restore'
    After phone rebooted I chose to restore from the last computer backup in iTunes.
    Restored from backup no problem.

    I didn't use my phone quite as much today as I have the rest of this week- but definitely enough to see that my battery life has VASTLY IMPROVED over the beta. Charging times seem to have gone down as well.

    I live and work in areas with extremely weak cell signals (for Sprint/Verizon anyways) so I know that has a negative effect on battery. (Tuesday the solar activity was so bad that I could literally stand in one spot and watch my battery % going down, but that's a story for another time!)

    Today I can tell already my battery life has improved over the betas. Might even be better than it was on iOS 6, but it's been awhile since I was on that so I couldn't say for sure.

    So far I'm happy. (Have really liked iOS 7 since I first installed the beta, too)

    Average to below average.

    Here is my first full day with iOS 7 GM. Backgrounding turned off. Parallax turned off. No push but many notifications.

    Not sure what you guys are talking about, but I have been using my iPhone 5 on iOS7 for the past 8 hours straight without putting it down, testing all the new functionality, and I've already had to recharge TWICE! Can you believe it?! UNACCEPTABLE! :D :rolleyes:
