    Same here, took it of the changer this morning at 8.00am.

    20 min of talk time, 5 min of checking email, LTE and locator service has been off, not open apps other than phone and email. I'm down to 25% 8 hours later. This phone is not usable.
    Considering going back to iPhone 4.

    It was recomended that I try and restore the phone again from a fresh backup.

     

    I will try that tonight.

    I think iPhone 5 is losing power pretty fast in standby mode. I calibrated the video playback consumption, and it conforms to specs of the battery. The problem seems to be in standby time.

    Same here, in standby 3G was ok overnite but today at the office with LTE and barely any use went from 100% to 25% This is not good. Have 99% of active apps disabled and still no difference, really hoping it is a software issue and not cheap Chinese batteries. Be a real pain getting fixed.

    Hi guys. I got my iphone 5 the other day. I don't know whether or not it was just me but when i received the handset - it was dead. Generally when i buy an iphone or idevice it's got about 80% charge...

     

    Anyway - disregard that i want to see how everyone's battery life is going.

     

    I have LTE on and 3G but i don't have LTE where i live (yes i know it's awful). So essentially all im getting is 3G.

     

    Now i know many of you will say that it's a waste to keep that on and etc etc - but with my last iphone (4), it held charge well... i got 8 hours of 3G out of it. With my iphone now - i'm gettin 6 Hours and 5 minutes out of a full charge.

     

     

    Ps - i have restored it, drained it and done a lot of things to keep the battery from draining but mine seems to just EAT AND EAT it...

    try this that i got from another member "trot nixon"

     

    The solution is to NOT load your new iPhone from back up. Here are the steps that 100% fixed my problem.

     

    Connect to your computer and iTunes.

    Do a reset by holding the home and power button.

    Right when your phone turns off, let go of the POWER only.

    iTunes will then recognize and iPhone launching in recovery mode.

    Restore the factory settings as prompted.

    Load every thing individually from the cloud, iTunes, but don't restore from back up.

     

    It takes a little extra work but my phone is a juggernaut now

    I am curious where to find that information concerning the different battery manufacturers. I did a bunch of Google searches and couldn't find anything. I am also experiencing poor battery life.

    I am happy to report that after completing a restore of my phone and setting it up as a new device (NOT restoring from a backup) my iPhone now appears to be holding a MUCH better charge. However, the true test will come tomorrow in its ability to survive the workday... barely made it through today, hopefully with the new restored version, it will be better.

    From what I have heard this will likely work, however you will loose all your saved data with apps. From game saves to settings to local documents. Proceeded with caution on this.

     

    Per my call with apple today I did a fresh backup of my iPhone 4 to my laptop and did a full reset of the iPhone 5 and I'm doing the restore with the laptop instead of icloud. I had some issues on my first restore.

     

    If this gives me issue ill try the reset all settings.

  • LoganSixx Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I can lilterally watch my battery % drain while doing nothing on it (all apps closed).

    Battery life is worse than my 2.5 year old iphone4.

     

    I thought I got a defective battery.

     

    Thinking about going back to the 4, death grip an all...at least it still has google maps on it.

     

    I am going to have to go into the store and let the "Geniues" know.

    Ah... very good of you to remind users of this. In my case, it wasnt an issue as I'm not a big "gamer" on my phone so saved progress in games is not a big deal if I lost that. I also don't store local docs on my phone either.

     

    Let us know how it turns out with your restore from the laptop. That is how I originally set mine up and when all the problems began.

    If you did this wouldn;t you lose all your messages and contacts because youre not restoring from back up
