    I had 97% after sync. Played with everything on it for like 3-4 hours and battery went down to 24%. That seems a little fast don't you think? I've since charged it again to 100%. Been on it 20 mins and battery now at 97%. Problem?

    It will get way better after a few charges. Batteries right out of the box wont give a good indication.

    Mine has been good so far, but I know it'll get better after few charges.

    Well that's definitely not good at all. Play around with settings a bit. Turn LTE off if you don't use it. Check your notifications and let the battery all the way down and charge it overnight without using the phone. The usual stuff.

    Speaking of battery life, where did location services go? I can't find it on settings.

    The first day (yesterday), it was absolutely awful. I had to bring my charger with me everywhere. Today was much dramatically better, but still not up to par as my previous 4. I'm hoping a few more charge cycles later it'll be better.

    Mine seems great. No scientific testing yet, but it seems on par with my 4 or better so far.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but if you don't turn off LTE, shouldn't your phone continue to search for the cell network in anticipation of your need to make and/or receive a regular phone call? Just askin'.
    YMMV

    Also, I've noticed the phone is automatically changing my brightness setting to either full power or all the way down. iPhone 4 never did that. Something is pulling power from it in standby too. Even after I've closed the apps I was using is it location services?

    I don't know bout LTE but I noticed on other iPhones I had that mail kills battery fast. In settings>mail I turn all mail accounts that have push to off. Push uses a lot of battery. Then while in settings in fetch new data> advanced I select any mail that says push to fetch. This has helped many friends/family in the past with battery life so it's the first thing I did setting up my 5.
    Hope this helps

    Yeah could be a faulty phone. I remember posting a thread where my phone lasted 4 and a half -5 hours o fa little bit of everything people said it seemed fair. However, I restored it, and it still had the same issues with no apps and everything possible to conserve battery turned off. got the 5, it lasted 4 and a half hours tops the first day. i let it deplete all the way, and it lasted me 6 hours and 32 minutes on 1 percent. Not bad, compared to my 4S. Too bad my phone has a ding right out of the box, or and I may get a different phone.
