    you are right that charge rate is fine,but keeping it hooked to the outlet all day kills it after a while

    i thought trickle charging prevented that.. I could be wrong here.

    Nail on the head spyd4r.    LiON batteries have no memory and it's more harmful to deep cycle them than it is to keep them charged up all the time.

    Keja: you are a JOKE. Looking for attention! What are you even talking about? You're like a nasty 13 year old girl. Most inportantly you're a joke and your comments and opinions on this matter that we are talking about are a waste of everybody's time. THAT'S the truth. Now I'm done with you. Thanks.

    The battery drainage is pretty mucgh the ssame for all iphone 5's.  The only ones with an actual issues are the ones drainning a crazy amount on standby, but for those who have ok standby battery drainnage, but those who experience a massive depletion during use, its pretty much normal for the iphone 5.  I have done 2 exchanges and have read many people who have done multiple exchanges as well.  Its totally a software/hardware issue of all the iphone 5's out there.  So those who are a bit OCD, like i was,  and think their own phone is defective, relax its not. 

     

    For those who are showing 11-12 hours usage.  That is defintely with mp3 playback .  Mostly everyone i know who have an iphone 5 get the same usage depending on use.  If its heavy usage, constant calling, texting, browsing, its 4-6 hours give or take LTE or wifi.,  On light to moderate use, its like 8-9 hours give or take, whatever settings.  I have easliy done 2 1/2 days stanby and about10 hours usage on pretty light to moderate use but also got only like 5 hours of use with constantly messing with the phone.

     

    So there is no point to keep exchanging your phone looking for one that has a perfect battery   hopefully this is something that apple can and will address, but it doesnt seem likely as of now.  I think for those of us who decide to continue on with this iphone will just have to deal wth the medocre battery.  I know most smart phones on this level all consume battery at a high rate, but shame on APPLE for advertising those specs knowing the majority of us will never come close to reaching those hours.   I know many of you demand more from your phone according to your lifestyle, business etc... but as long as the phone gets me through the day meaning like 12-14 hours stanby/usage combined i am ok.... Defintely would be nice to go 3 days without a charge, but realistically thats not gonna happen, atleaste with IP5.

     

    Will this make me never buy future iphones?? probably not.  But this is a definite stepdown for APPLE in the smart phone sector.  They will very likely lose many loyal iphone users.  From my experience, alot of my friends who use android, s3 in particular, love it.  As they will admit that style wise, iphone does look alot better, but performance wise, s3 is as good or if not a bit better, i guess that depends on persoanl preference.  I prefer iphone, but I am not super tech savvy, i guess i am just accustomed to how the iphone runs and do like the look of the phone.
