    I see all these posts about bad battery life and everything but never anything good. I finally was able to get all the app crashes and memory issues solved and since my battery life has been awesome.

    Edit: iPhone 5s

    Usage: 10 hours and 57 min (Eventually ended at 11 hours and 36 min)
    Standby: 1 Day, 2 Hours (Ended at 1 Day, 3 Hours)

    I plugged my phone into a speaker dock for 10 min during those numbers.

    Anyone else care to share? I have a screen shot too.

    iPads (both iPad mini and iPad 3) battery life have been wonderful, iPhone battery is terrible.

    less than 4 hours on 3G browsing...

    There are several other threads about iOS and battery life ...

    My best is 7 hrs 15 minutes with an iPhone 5 but just in another town where signal strength is very strong everywhere.
    In the town where I live and work I reach 5 hrs at best (4 hrs most of the time).

    ----------

    Your result are just false because the speaker dock recharged it for a while.

    In general it can and usually is different for different people in different places at different times under different usage. Comparing numbers often doesn't really result in much.

    If someone just plays back a bunch of music on their phone with the screen off most of the time and the phone in a good WiFi location or perhaps is in airplane mode most of the time, they can easily get probably even around a day of usage time and a couple of days or so of standby. Does that really say anything one way or another for someone else who might use their phone for more calls or games and usually in different places with different cell signals?

    My best battery life with iPhone 4. I was on 3G or wifi the whole time, listening to music, watching videos on YouTube, browsing safari, using whatsapp etc. I was really surprised to see my phone last so long..

    That's almost 8 hours of usage and 1 day 8 hours standby.

    28 minutes (streaming a podcast) was the only thing I did with the screen off, and except for checking the news during a ten minute bus ride, I was exclusively on wifi when I used the internet. Mainly browsing, Facebook and Instagram, but also texting, about half an hour of phone calls and something like 45 minutes of gaming. I've never seen my phone get to these numbers before 7.0.3, before that I got about seven hours of action with the same usage patterns:

    I don't have a screenshot but the longest I've had in iOS 7 without plugging my phone in was 11 hours and 37 minutes

    I think my longest is 8.5 hours on my iPhone 5S. That is with at least an hours use of facebook app though. So not too bad.... Usually I average around 7 hours (with games here and there throughout the day)

    I think my battery has gotten maybe 10% worse since the 7.0.4 update a couple days ago. I could be wrong, but where standby was perfect (no drain) before, I'm now having ~3-4% drain (over a couple hours)

    That kinda pisses me off :\ . I mean you'd expect that from like iOS5 to iOS6 (which destroyed my iPad's standby time), but not from some small bug fixes. Sigh

    I can get max 6-ish hours from 100% to 0% with light-normal use and with Bluetooth, motion, Location Services, and Push email all off. iOS 6 could get me 7.5-8 hours with the same setup.

    Hmm, I didn't even manage those stats on iOS6 and now I'm lucky to see 5.5 hours of usage time with 5.5 hours of standby time.

    With just about everything on (wifi, Bluetooth etc.) this is the kind if usage I get with my week old 5s. I probably could've got it up to 13 maybe even 14 hrs of usage. 14 might have been pushing it though.
