It's too soon to say, since my usage has varied greatly since I have had it.
I was going down 10% per hour with LTE on.. Right now, I have been off the charger since, noon. I am at 77%. I talked on the phone using a bluetooth for about 30 minutes today, and sent / received a bunch of text messages.
So that is around 5% per hour. I have email set to check every 30 minutes, no wifi, no lte, no gps on..
I really need SBSettings back... I wanted to text out maps a few times, to see how bad they are, but digging through the settings to find Location services made me give up.

Legit? Looks pretty good. Know anyone that uses it?

Anyone know any good wallet type cases for the 5 out yet? Best would be just something that closes with no strap or anything.

You have any good written reviews on it? Newer reviews?

I'm intrigued, but a little skeptical. http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/rev...lm-for-ipad-2/ That doesn't help. Physics was never my strong suit, but I find it hard to see how it can protect against a 6 foot drop. Maybe if the iPhone were plastic, but not the metal and glass versions we have now.

I'm telling you, I've tried all the big names in screen protectors and you won't find a better one than these. http://www.spigen.com/ I had the same problems with wrapsol as the review you posted. It's closer to rubber than plastic so applying it isn't the easiest thing in the world. The SGP protectors are more rigid and go on without any trouble at all.

Screen protector or full case? I'm more concerned about drop protection. I have a 3 yr old who isn't the most careful. Well, to be fair, I gotta include myself as I've cracked a glass face as well. I'd love to have the slimness of a skin, but I really, really need full on drop protection.

Is anyone else having subpar battery life? Was charged to 100% this morning at 7. It's now 4 pm and its at 50%. I didn't even do that much. Just a few text messages, couple minutes of Facebook, one phone call and about 30 min of music..

It felt like I got much better battery life over Friday and Saturday

I placed a order for this case a couple days ago. Received it today and was pleasantly surprised how nice it is. It's very slim/sleek and adds no weight or volume to your iPhone, which is extremely important to me. The materiel they make these out of seems durable and has a slight rubber touch to it to, which feel great in your hand but does not stick inside your pockets. Overall I was pleasantly impressed. And the BEST PART... it cost $10 shipped to your door!

For those looking for a nice slim case and looks great on your i5... jump on this!

Mine is way better than my old 4s. I currently have 6 hours of usage, 20 hours of standby with 40% left. My 4s was using 20% battery life every 1 hour of usage.

I just checked my wife's phone and its at 3 hrs usage, 10 hours standby and 71% left.

False. Jobs feeds on fetuses.



And it keeps draining. It's gone down to 45% in 30 minutes when all I did was look at a couple of threads on here for a minute or two.
