I dont understand why so many people are complaining. Droid users on the LTE network have been complaining about battery issues for years. Why do you think they download software ie Juice plus and carry around 3 batteries. Its the LTE...Jobs warned us of this, but everyone wanted faster. When you use LTE in a cell phone batteries are going to die quicker!! I posted about this prior to the phone being released and everyone poked fun...Hmmmm hate to say, but told ya so.....

Nothing new....

What I don't get is why did they go thinner when they could've kept it the same thickness as the 4 but shoved a larger battery in there. It just baffles me.

What you are failing to acknowledge is that many iPhone 5 users on LTE are experiencing 8-9+ hours of usage, while many others can't even get 3-4.

Your explanation of LTE doesn't hold water.
