I haven't noticed it particularly with imessage but what I have noticed is that when it tells me I have emails, I get them in duplicate on the iphone5 but yet on the main server, I only get the one, again this doesn't happen with the iphone4! I've also just deleted the facebook app from the iphone5, I can live without it lol - will see if it makes a difference!
I had the same problems with my battery loosing charge FAST. I fully charged it before going to my local apple store today booked in to see a (genius) after ringing apple to complain about the battery life, IT'S WAS 100% leaving home and at 46% getting to store which is 30 minutes away... So poor. Got to store and he connected it to a laptop and did some scan & diagnostics on the battery and he told me that it WAS NOT functioning as expected. So replaced my phone with a new one like for like. :)
GOT HOME AND SET IT UP AS NEW. .
NOT FROM THE ORIGINAL BACK UP.
THEN SYNCED APPS MUSIC ETC.
THEN SET UP ICLOUD.
THAT WAS AT 4-25pm I finished it is now 6-20pm and still at 100% so I think my old ip5 had a bad battery which am sure happens from time to time.
I hope this helps people who are wondering what to do.
Oh and just to note I have what I want on and NOT TURNED OFF :)
My battery is not very good. But not as horrible as some of yours here. The issue is, If I use my phone for 1.5 hours max (safari, facebook, imessage, setting, photo). It tells me that I've used it for 6+ hours. I don't see one push email account, one fetch account can use 4.5 hours! and make the phone 2%.
With light use, the phone is dead by 8pm. No way it can last till 11pm. Also, I didn't play game, listen to music, video.... Just 1.5-2 hours of safari, email and facebook. I don't think this is normal....
OMG Kevin 2% and I thought mine was bad!
Right I charged mine up to 97% (got impatient !) made a note of the time which was 5.20 p.m., haven't really used it except to check emails most of which are from you lovely people and at 7.05 p.m., it is still at 97%.
However, I'm still getting duplicate emails on the phone but not on my server.
Also, re: ibooks - when using the iphone4 and my ipad - if I switched from one to the other and hit resume, I could get back to the same place.
However, reading a book on my ipad last night, I then tried to carry on reading it on the iphone 5 and it hadn't updated! Not amused - so I'm wondering if it's me that's doing something wrong? If somepone could point me in the right direction on this point, it would be appreciated. Just thankful I read 50 shades a long time ago lol !
DFU Restoration update:
I let my iPhone 5 run completely out today. It died only moments ago (1:45 ET). I have to say, it hung at 1% for a couple of hours before finally crapping out.
Managed to snap a shot of my usage numbers. Much increased over my numbers from Monday. Below are both stats for comparision. Bear in mind, Monday's usage stat didn't include much actual usage. Some browsing and texting with about 30 minutes of cellular use.
The improved usage numbers included 60 minutes of cell call time, plus SiriusXM/AirPlay streaming, app updates, iBooks, messaging. Basically using it as I did my 4.
MONDAY'S PRE-DFU Stats:
- Usage: 5 Hours, 30 Minutes
- Standby: 14 Hours, 0 Minutes
- 30 Minutes Cellular Time (call)
YESTERDAY/TODAY POST-DFU Stats:
- Usage: 8 Hours, 21 Minutes
- Standby: 1 Day, 1 Hour
- 60 Minutes Cellular Time (call)
- 1% Remaining
An improvement is apparent. Charging it up for another full use/discharge cycle.
I was looking through Diagnostics and Usage and have found roughly 85 webbookmarksd crash reports.
Interesting to note however that the crash reports start at 730am - time I leave home for work ie wifi swaps to LTE/3G and no crashes since disabling safari icloud syncing.
Killed Safari, disabled all safari icloud syncing. restarted and made sure safari has not booted.
Battery was at about 33% 30 minutes ago and is not at 30%. I have been listening to music in this time (roughly 16hrs of listening to music if 6%/hr holds) which is still far less than half of their 40hr estimate. (trying to drain battery faster so I can get a full charge cycle in before end of the work day)
with all safari disabled and while listening to music I am going through 6% per 60 minutes
Prior to killing safari and disabling safari icloud syncing I was going through about 20% per 60 minutes standby.
(still @ 30% over last 3 songs roughly 10 minutes of use)

I know this will be difficult for many of you to swallow, but here goes...........
Set it up and leave the settings alone for a few days. Use it and charge as necessary, without tinkiring with, resetting, or restoring.
When you first set up, or restore the phone, either an iPhone 5 or iOS6 on an older model, I BLELIEVE that there is a heck of a lot happening in background for many hours. Whether its an iCloud backup, wifi sync, or something we really don't understand, it seems to me that the first day or two is consuming a lot of respources, dragging battery life down the toilet. I had terrible performance on Friday and Saturday, after setting up my iPhone5. By Sunday, it was clearly better.
Last night, I got home from work and put tthe phone down with a full charge on it at 6pm. I didn't touch it all evening and forgot to charge it overnight. Much to my surprise, when I looked at it the morning and 6am (12 hours later), the battery was still at 90%! I have nearly all features on at all times, as I refuse to compromise features on a phone that cost me $400. At home, I do not have LTE coverage, but do have strong 3G and am connected to my home wifi (Verizon Mifi). BT is on (used in the car), iCloud on, wifi sync on, location services ALL on, notifications on, push email for exchange and yahoo mail on, etc., etc., etc......
Since that first 48 hours has past, the battery life has been FAR BETTER than my 4s had......
I agree with you but there are extreme cases where there is actually something wrong.
For example since disabling icloud sync for safari, which was causing bookmarks to duplicate and webbookmarksd to crash every few minutes, my battery depletion has gone from 20% per hr to less than 5% per hr.
It should likely only deplete at 2% per hour for my current useage. This difference will likely be made up by waiting like you are saying.
