    I am returning mine tomorrow.  I am not going to wait and see if they fix the problem.  My 2 year old heavily used iPhone 4 lasts longer and the worst part is I bought the iPhone 5 so I would get back to normal battery life.  This is a major problem and buyer beware.  Steve jobs has definitely left the building.

    No that's horrible battery life... It's about what I'm getting, too. It dies 10% in standby while I'm sleeping. iPhone 4 iOS 5.1.1 didn't drain even 1% in that scenario. Different software different phone but there is something very wrong! Your battery life is terrible. Return the phone or exchange it. They have got to figure this out.
