One nice Philips App shows how we can manage the battery. It is called Philips BatterySense. Gives advice according to need what apps should be turned off at the battery condition of that time.
It's helping me get best out of my battery. I have got a 64 GB iPhone 5.

Congratulations. Apple suggest you do that once or month or so to recalibrate the accuracy of the battery readout. I assure you that the app did nothing to improve battery life.

my iphone 5 I just got it two days ago. I already hate it. I charge it fully and then use it throughout the day. No facebook, no interenet, JUST checking email and texting!! This is bull!! I can't wait until I return it. The guy at the apple store said to wait a few weeks to see if the battery life gets any better, but I doubt it will. No more apple for me after this probably. I'm looking into LG. When I was younger I had a crappy flip LG phone (just silver) nothing fancy no touch screens (before smart phones) and that phone lasted me DAYS compared to the apple iPhone 5. Piece of CRAPPP!!! strangling myself. oh steve jobs why did you have to go?!?!??!

Thanks for this.
I am fortunate to have 2 Iphone 5's both upgraded from 4 & 4S. The slightly older one gives me 2 days battery but the newer one won't last a day. Yet they are botoh set up the same and probably get about the same use during the day as each other....
Tried all your tips above and hoping it will work.. but am at loss as to the one I ahve had only 2 months runs out of charge at 3pm where as the one I ahve had 9 months goes 2 days.

Is my battery usage good? half of the the time its in 3g (not all apps are allowed to connect via 3g) and half in wifi, i put it in silent mood like 2 hours ago. Location services open for some apps only. used it for like 30 minutes in phone calls and the rest for a messaging app called kik and facebook. brightness is 30%.

The same happens to me, sometimes I dont use my phone for hours and still manage to lose 30 percent on nothing. I wonder whats the cause of all this and if there could be a portable charger or maybe even charging stations for all types of phones.

It seems that the battery on some of the iPhone 5 is rubbish.
I fully charge my battery and by 11am I have to recharge. I make hardly any calls but I check mails, read an online paper and maybe listen to 15-30 minutes of internet radio in that time.
My battery has on occasion dropped dead showing 50%, but once it gets to 30% or lower I am resigned that it will simply shut down.
OK - so I can stop browsing, and I can stop checking mails, and I can stop listening to Internet radio, I can turn down the screen, turn off bluetooth, turn off wifi - I can also simply turn off the phone. But it cost me just over $1000 and I expect this bit of kit to work. It's my 3rd iphone and definitely my last unless they fix the battery. I'm looking at a Nexus or a new generation Nokia - cannot be arsed with over-priced phone letting me down constantly.
It's like a Ferrari fitted with a Fiat Bambino fuel tank.

Hello to evreyone
I have been posting to this site for probably a year and all of it has been about battery problems. I am now confident that Apple pays no attention to anything found in here. This is just a forum to save them having to support users. I am convinced they have no intention to adress the battery issue. After all they are Apple....why should they.
Personally I am fedup and my next phone will not be an Apple product. I will probably go for a Samsung Galaxy. Apparently they are pretty good. I encourage you all to follow suit. It is time to send a message to Apple that we are not prepared to let them get away with it.
Please if you feel the same post it here and encourage others to do so. Spread the news. Perhaps we can make a difference if enough of use start shouting.
The iphone 5 is rubbish.Do you agree?
I wonder how long this will remain posted here?
