When I tried the iPhone it was begging for the charger by lunch. Unacceptable. I ended up with the 3300mah RAZR MAXX HD.

I don't mind the iPad, but sheesh, a LTE phone with a 1400mah battery....math.
From real-world tests, the iphone 5 was roughly on par with the Maxx, and I believe it matched it in battery life.

It's not just the size of the battery, but also how efficient the chip and radios are.

My iphone 5 gets me well over a day. I am avergaging 1.5 days on standby now with 8-10 hours of usage. Don't need anything more as I just need it to get me to bedtime when I can plug in.

With the 5, I even skip charging at night some days and still have enough to continue the next morning/afternoon.
