any chance that i could get a 6. ios 7 is killing my battery badly.
You haven't told us what carrier and what model of iPhone 5 you have. Depending on carrier and model it's possible.

AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile probably not possible, especially the 16/32GB models.
Sprint, probably not possible unless you're looking for a 64GB model.

Sprint sells less iPhones than the other three. All four carriers sell less 64GB models than they do 16/32GB. When Apple sells less, it means the stock sits for a while. The longer it sits the greater the chance you have of getting what you want.

My wife's 64GB Sprint iPhone 5 sat on Apple's shelves for about nine months and consequently she got 6.0.3.

But you probably don't have Sprint and aren't probably looking for a 64GB model.

Well i have literally everything. I restored as new ios 7.0.4. App refresh is off. ALL Locations services are disabled. Mail is set to manual. LTE is off. Notification center only has mail, phone, messages, reminders, and calender. Stocks is off. Walpaper is default ios 7 static wallpaper. Bluetooth is off. Wifi ask for networks is also off. Basically everything is off. I charged it to 100 percent. Unplugged it left it over night and in the morning it was on 85%. :confused:

----------

Oh, i have T-Mobile USA. 16GB

----------

Would there be any other solution to my battery drain?

Yes, it can. But if Apple checks it and it's NOT the battery then at least you know. And it's it's iOS 7 then Apple should fix it.

It's not battery related, but one user here the other day had his brand new 5s go bad on him the first hour or so he had it. So, yes, this is entirely possible.
