My sprint phone chews battery like a fat chick through Häagen-Dazs. My AT&T iP5 sipped the juice.

Shit, I'm noticing this myself but thought it was just me. I have a work iPhone 4S on AT&T and a personal iPhone 5 on Sprint. The AT&T lasts 3 days, the Sprint lasts slightly more than 1. But I get significantly more signal with AT&T where I work due to a tower directly on base.

My i 5 is on LTE mostly and I have turned off WiFi.

That could be a difference.

I only have 3G at home, patches of 2G-3G-LTE on my drive to work, and one bar of 3G at work. I know my iPhone is working hard to keep signal in the bomb shelter that I work at.

My iP4 on T-Mobile also chews battery more than it ever did on AT&T. AT&T has great coverage here, albeit 5X5 but overpriced service. Of course then again, Sprint in SoCal is pretty much 0X0...evidently they think deploying LTE to populated areas aside from SFO is repulsive.

The battery life sucks, but it did on all my iPhones (3GS, 4, 5), but I have chargers in my car, office, and home, so I have stopped caring about it.

You can't have thinness and lightness with a huge brick of a battery with current tech, though things are gradually improving as is evident in the progression of the iPhone.

Doesn't surprise me. Had a Droid X - POS - reboots, lockups, slowness, and a generally bad experience.

Went back to an iPhone and it's 10000x better than the mess Android is. I have no issues with my Verizon 4s - battery lasts a good long while.
