...a new color for the first time since Apple moved from one color option to two on the iPhone 3G...

 

Apple have never sold a coloured iPhone.  They only come in black and white.

It looks like Apple has once again skimped on the battery. :no:

That would be a little difficult seeing as the enclosure isn't changing.  Regardless, the iPhone gets better battery life than most phones on the market.  I can easily get 3 days of casual use on my 2 year old 4S.

0.3mm thinner.  :laugh:

Probably because of the different screen though.

 

Edit:  Nvm, the 5 is also 7.6mm thick. Is something else cosmetic going to change?

Of course.  Email, surfing the net, playing games, etc.  It usually doesn't work too well when I'm on Sprint's useless data network instead of Wifi, but I still get really good battery life.

+1 especially when the norm these days is 2000MaH but then Apple has been using a 4' screen with a less than 720p resolution screen with a dual core processor so maybe it doesn't require a 2000Mah battery especially when the phone will last from morning to evening :s

Kinda have to disagree on that. I've yet to run into an iPhone user amongst friends boasting about good battery life. My 4S especially :/

Nokia had alot of Golden phones; never see anyone with one of those, not even the Nokia 8800 or even the Arte Editions of that model (only in shops).

 

It looked utter crap and this one doesn't get any better.

Worst design decision from Apple yet. However I would not be surprised if this results as a gold case made for someone in Dubai.

(...)  Regardless, the iPhone gets better battery life than most phones on the market.  I can easily get 3 days of casual use on my 2 year old 4S.

 

hum...wut? Battery life better on the iPhone? Compared to what? I have a Nokia 1100 at work that it's battery lasts for 5 days; compared to other smartphones is equal or worse (source: all my clients who haves iPhones, varying from the 4 to 5).

And how you easily get 3 days with casual use (i imagine email, websites browsing, sms, calls, etc.) is beyond my head. :o

I think he meant compared to other smartphones. :rofl: I had a dumbphone (feature phone) that went a week with my normal usage, which on a dumbphone is really limited to calls and texts. Sure you can play games, surf the web, email on dumbphones, but it's not the same as a smartphone. 

 

In any case, yeah, it's hard to imagine any modern smartphone getting 3 days of usage on Email, surfing the net, playing games, I have a HTC One, remember quad core CPU, massive 4.7" screen compared to iPhone, and I can easily go on 2 days of battery with about 5 hours of on screen time. 

 

Having a closed ecosystem is a good thing in regards to battery life. With only one device to support, you better hope Apple gets the iPhone's battery life perfect.

Umm... I clearly mentioned what the comparison was...

Again this weekend I didn't charge it at all from Friday until now when I put it on my dock.  It had 6% battery left, but it's still alive.

Being on Wifi occasionally helps, but iOS doesn't have the battery-killing clutter that Android does, so I don't know why it's so surprising that I'd get good life out of this thing.

I'll be curious.  My upgrade has awhile ago.   So I'll either pick up the iPhone 6,  or Samsung Galaxy 6/7 what's ever out there then.

Out of curiosity what are your usage and standby figures via the Settings app?
