Normal to heavy usage, LTE always on, some wifi use. Only keep apps open when in use. Screen brightness varies.
Games, internet, texts, voice recording, and phonecalls.
I only charge my phone when it gets to less than 5%.

was it like that out of the box? if not, what did you do?
how is your settings set up? lastly, do you get full 5 bars reception?
these are impressive numbers! would love to try and get near that.

It was like that out of the box. I have always used my phone depending on what im doing. If i'm going to sleep, my alarm is set. there's no reason to have max brightness, BT, wifi, LTE, and a million apps open when im sleeping. I turn off cell data when im sleep.
During the day, i close apps im not using. i never use full brightness unless i am taking a picture or outside for a while.
i charged the phone to full upon taking it out of the box.
On a normal day, I use Twitter/FB, music, text, internet, voice memo, and occasional gaming. On the last one i posted i actually turned my screen on full brightness and turned screen lock off so that it could drain so i could charge overnight from less than 5%, or i would have gotten 11 hrs usage.
my screen lock is set at 1 min. My reception depends on my location. At home/work/out its 4 to 5 bars. at school, its 1-2 bars if on LTE, sometimes it drops to 3G or no service. its trash service at school lol. i've owned OG iphone, 3GS, 4S, and now 5 so I have lots of experience.
