This battery life is becoming a big problem... I had 4 hours of usage yesterday before it went dead. Not even four hours of heavy usage, most of it was emails.. no streaming non of that. Screen brightness is set to super low too.

Yup, guy at the Apple store today told me to give them a call when I see the charge on my bill and they should waive it.

Mine too. Mine doesn't come no where near that kind of usage. All I do is text, light browsing, bimmer app, and email. The most I've gotten is like 6 hours. Screen brightness at like 35-40%. 4g on and LTE off.

Those of you who are having battery problems, do you have anything running in the background, icloud backup, the spotify issues I think some people had mentioned, etc.

I just got my phone today and the first charge didnt last long at all due to the phone backing up to the cloud, since then the battery hasn't really moved much at all with some pretty consistent use, web browsing etc.

Who else has this? I have a genius bar appointment this evening. It's not a srcatch, it's pixels going awry on the screen. Phone is in perfect shape, not dropped or damaged at all.

Is it a scratch in the glass or flickering in the screen on the keyboard keys. I've seen flickering artifacts in my messages keyboard. I think it's just a software problem. Every new iOS release is followed by a .0.1 within a month or two.

It is NOT a scratch. It is artifacting. I've seen the lines strech all the way across the screen.

I had the same problem!!

It goes away soon though, right? When you press a button?

I had it happen twice to me. The first time it looked like underscores next to app names. The second it was like 5-6 lines across the screen. Both times they went away as soon as I pressed a button, leading me to think it is asoftware issue.

Got the skinomi case off amazon. Nice packaging and went on pretty easy. Fits with the slim case I have just fine. A little on the rubber side but not like most. I like it.

The guy at the Genius Bar swapped out my iPhone 5 today because my streaming Bluetooth audio was all kinds of screwed.. If I touched the phone while it was streaming, the audio would cut off! Never had this problem with the iPhone 4.

I was also having the battery issue, so I'm hopeful that the new phone will act better.. Fingers crossed!
