Have any apps installed that might be running in the background that you dont know about? I had battery problems and I did a complete restore and have only installed apps that I absolutely need.

Get great battery life if brightness is at 50% or lower.

I don't know why I have luck with battery life. I can go for days before it goes to 50%. Or maybe I just don't use my iPhone as much as others. My wife still complains that I'm my phone too much.

Same. I had awesome battery life with my droid and even better with my 5.

My wife's has been rough with the same phones.

I ran my phone to zero today and charged it back up and it seems to be way better so far. I figured it just needed to cycle.

What's the website that sells the vapor pro knock offs? I saw the link in here before but it must have been an older thread because I can't find it again.

From what I've read, the vapor pro knock offs are better for GPS apps. Biggest complaint on Vapor cases is that the GPS doesn't work accurately... but the knock offs don't have that issue. The knock offs look as good as the original also. I get tempted to buy a vapor case... but it will look like crap in a month for me. If I could keep myself from dropping my phone... I would rather go naked (phone not me... ).

That case makes it look like the first gen iPhone. I still have my first gen... that thing was a tank.

I'm not implying that it looks like a first gen as a bad thing. It looks great... and it looks similar to the first gen because of the rounded chrome-silver edge. I liked the look of my first gen over my 3G iPhone. Now everything is squarish looking. I didn't like that at first... but I grew to like it.

On my iPhone 5, I still have my unlimited data... but I am still under 2 gigs a month with LTE data... Just like when I was on 3G only on my iPhone 4. However, on my iPad with LTE, I blow through 2 gigs of data fast. I average 4 to 5 gigs a month... and have gone over 6 gigs a few times.
