The battery life on my iPhone 5 is as good or better that it was on my iPhone 4.
Take a look at this Apple page, it has tons of tips for improving battery life -> Apple - Batteries - iPhone

Probably because if you actually searched the forums there are tons of battery life questions. That is why duplicates get deleted because questions like yours are already answered.

I didn't ask you how to fix it. Jeez what smart-alecks here. You don't know that i have searched for days and done MANY of the battery saving things. Finally have a new new phone and STILL the battery life is NOT AS GOOD AS MY 4. THAT IS THE QUESTION...is your battery life as good as your 4
I think it is a legitimate question because they ADVERTISE that the 5 is BETTER than the 4, but obviously for several people, this is not the case.
If you are merely a lurker and don't post your problem people won't realize how prevalent a problem is, or isn't. I was trying to see how prevalent it is since several have posted that problem. We can only assume that it is a fraction of people experiencing the problem. Probably most iPhone users never even find this site.

And Cali thanks for answsering the question directly. I'm glad you're having good battery life. I know several with the 5 who do, and have run into several who don't. It seems like a dice roll...

Lastly, if you went from a 4 to a 5 I'm assuming that your usage habits didn't suddenly change when you moved to an iPhone 5. Therefore if the battery runs down on the 5 IT IS NOT AS GOOD AS THE 4 AND THAT IS A PROBLEM for us as users, and for Apple for delivering what we are paying for.
