    I just picked up a New iPhone 8gb and it may just be me or my battery life sucks with this thing. I gave it a full charge approx 4-5 hours ago or so and it's already at the half-way mark and all I've done with it was send out about 6 or so text messages.

    Does this seem right or not??

    On the internet I get about 3 hours solid with 20% left over.

    On idle with random internet activity I go all day with spare left over.

    probably a bad battery. My first iphone had a bad battery, phone would die out in 24 hrs on standby even after a full charge. Bring it to the "genius bar", they will just swap it for a new one if you tell them its a bad battery

    I charge mine every 2-3 days. Few texts, few calls, and random internet stuff everyday, and I can last 2 days easy. I have wi-fi off unless im using it, brightness is also set at about 3/4, and bluetooth is off.

    same here

    it only lasted me like 4 hrs the first few days when i played with it NONSTOP.

    learn to turn off bluetooth if ur not using it. and i usually always leave wifi on bc I'm always around wifi, unless traveling then i turn it off.

    Sounds like a bad battery. I recharge every 2-3 depending on use and mine is at about 30% at that point.
