    Did a restore and I've been using the phone for almost half an hour and I'm still at 100% with everything on except Bluetooth! Before it would drop about 2% every 5 minutes or so! Restoring really works! I haven't even turned off the screen as yet

    Pretty standard for normal phones... It goes to 99% around 30 mins. Here's a guideline from previous experience (used consistently, not left overnight because you loss around 1% every hour or so)

    100% - 30 mins usage
    97 % - 40 mins usage
    93 % - 1 hr usage
    75% - 2 hr 20 mins usage
    60% - 3 hr 30 mins usage
    50% - 4 hr usage
    40% - 4 hr 30 mins usage
    30% - 5 hr 15 mins usage
    20% - 6 hr usage
    10% - 6 hr 50 mins usage
    5% - 7 hr 15 mins usage
    1% - 7 hr 30 mins usage

    That's my typical use anyway. No music.

    The first 10% from 100 to 90 is not a good indicator of overall battery life. I had a day where it stayed at 99% for an hour of usage. Still ended up with the normal 8 hours or so. Not complaining, 8 is great, just saying the battery life indicator seems to drain more slowly at the beginning, faster as you get towards 50%, then at 1% you might get 15-20 minutes extra, as a little bonus. ;)

    What type of restore did you do? iTunes restore-from-backup, iCloud, or set up as new? Thanks!

    Mine's getting better each time I charged it full, using it non-stop until it totally drains by doing all the usual stuffs I do each day and so much more ... Rinse, Repeat even at work, lol. This beauty is a keeper but my should I exchange this Verizon iP5 with an AT&T iP5 dilemma continues (keeping unlimited data & taste the power of LTE before the throttling).

    meaningless. I had mine show 10 hours of standby and it hadn't dropped from 100%

    I had the same battery issue.
    Did a backup to iCloud and connected the phone to iTunes and did a restore then directly restored from iCloud. Now I'm getting equally good battery time as thread starter!
    So I didn't have to set up as new phone, thankfully! Happy again!!

    Exactly. It's like driving the car around the block and thinking it has great gas mileage because the needle hasn't moved.

    Agree with several posts above.

    My phone can get 30 minutes usage, 2+ hours standby and still be at 100%.

    You can't judge the battery life until you're 5% or below.

    Sorry to (maybe) spoil your excitement, but mine does the same thing...thennnn it nose dives from there. I can get an hour on 100%, but the phone still dies after 4-5 hours, with exactly the same usage :mad:

    This is exactly what's happening
