    I have to say, coming from a 4S, the battery life on this new 5 is amazing! Anyone with a more scientific result ? How's your 5's battery?

    Wow. 5% and only a little over 3 hours? that's crazy as hell! And a little scary actually.

    imutter something seems wrong on your battery usage. I agree with altjx that it's a little scary.

    Compare with mine:

    UPDATE: Maybe your phone is wasting power trying to get a good LTE signal, since you did mention your LTE connection wasn't the best? Try setting your LTE to off?

    Now that's more like it. I hope the other guy's battery shows this way too sooner than later. Last thing I need right now is to hear iPhone 5's battery sucks lol.

    Rafagon I tweaked my settings too ? Should I go to the Apple store ? I got to go to AT&T anyway my other phone are missing hot spots ?
    I am not happy I had nothing but headache with my phone
    I was so excited!
    My 4s was running better on iOS6 and better in general
    AT&T stinks too

    Same here, I'm on Wi-Fi 98% of the time, but the phone will still try to acquire and keep a cellular signal even when you're on Wi-Fi, for things like phone calls and data that cannot go through Wi-Fi, like MMS messages to people who don't have iMessage. I set my "Enable LTE" to off since I'm almost always on Wi-Fi. Plus my LTE speeds were rather disappointing--I'll probably do better on HSPA+ whenever I do need to transfer data over cellular.

    And yes, if your battery life does not improve, I would definitely take it to an Apple store!

    I had a battery problem like that with my iPhone 4 and I took it to the Apple store and they replaced it on the spot. Try that.

    If I don't have LTE in my area, is it that much better to turn the LTE radio off to save the battery?

    Does charging from 0% to 100% take around 2 hours like the iPhone 4?

    Now I have battery usage statistics that simply say "-".


    I've never seen this before. They were being displayed just fine before!

    ^ mine was like that you need to fully charge to 100 Percent and then not turn off the phone. When mine was done at 100% I did a soft reset then it looked like yours so u fully charged it again to 100% then didn't disconnect it right away and seems to be working now
