Iphone 5s Battery Life
I made the jump of 3Gs to 5s but am quite disappointed in the current battery life of my 5s. I am curious to find out if this is just how the 5s really is or somehow mine has some form of an issue.
My 3Gs just on stand by could go almost a week before needing a change. My 5s on the other hand is lucky to reach two days before needing charge. I've asked a couple people from carriers and Mac shops always getting mixed answers of " 2 days is the norm or even better than most" and others saying should be able to almost reach a week.
I am also running my 5s with basically everything off which (wifi,bluetooth,notifications, fetching, background apps closed, etc.) I could understand 2 days life with many of these features on or very active texting/calling but to me 2 days seems way to short for basically standby. Sadly I have even taken mine in to be battery tested for the known battery recall and mine passed.
To those with the 5s what kind of battery life are you getting between charges and amount of features have running?
