iPhone 5 Battery Issues

Is anyone else having significant battery drain issues with their iPhone 5? I've played with turning wifi on/off, bluetooth on/off, notifications, etc... my battery drains quick. I even had it charging while I was sleeping last night. Plugged it in at 55%. Woke up and it was at 99% (4 hours later)! Something isn't right.

This link describes a little more than apple personally looks to divulge... check it out after reading below!

HERE IS WHAT APPLE CHOOSES TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE BATTERY IN THE NEW iPHONE 5 (which is now on the 4G LTE NETWORK:

Built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery
Charging via USB to computer system or power adapter
Talk time: Up to 8 hours on 3G
Standby time: Up to 225 hours
Internet use: Up to 8 hours on 3G, up to 8 hours on LTE, up to 10 hours on Wi-Fi
Video playback: Up to 10 hours
Audio playback: Up to 40 hours


*** This is directly from the apple website ***
http://www.apple.com/iphone/specs.html

Apple chooses not to tell consumers how the iphone actually has a built in 1440 Lithium Ion battery. While smartphones such as the Galaxy SIII and Razr Maxx have 2,100 and 3,100 Lithium Ion, respectively.

So if you want a half a day out of your battery get an iphone!!! otherwise droid, but choose wisely most times you sign a 2 year contract!
