Hi everyone,


I've already read many battery issues here and i guess i'm also having one !


2 days ago a friend of my and I bought Iphone 5 16gb in the same store. We charged the phone to 100% yersterday evening.

When i was going to bed battery was 98% I closed all apps and turned "don't disturb" mode ON.
I woke up 8hours later and battery was 71%  !!!??? So i called my friend and his phone was still on 97% without "don't disturb" mode turned on.

The only difference in settings between our phones is that i had turned on 3G and Bluetooth and he didn't.
ALL the other settings were excatly the same. ( icloud was on, push mails, .... )


My question: Do i have bad luck ? Do i have a bad battery? Or is 3G and Blutooth such battery demanding ( even overnight ) that these 2 use over 20% battery in 8 hours standby ?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1
