Apple iPhone 5 battery larger, pictured alongside current iPhone 4S juicer
The Apple iPhone 5 rumor mill is at full swing today and we’ve got more images of upcoming new iPhone and its taller but thinner battery. Pictured alongside the current battery powering the iPhone 4S, the new juicer seems larger but due to its thinner sizes, at 0.8 ounces it’s actually lighter than the 0.96-ounce iPhone 4S battery, according to the latest leaks coming from repair site iResq.

The new iPhone 5 battery will be of 5.45 watt-hour capacity, at 3.8 volt compared to the 5.3 watt-hour and 3.7-volt 4S juicer.

With the expected inclusion of a larger screen and LTE radio on the new iPhone, we don’t expect Apple to bump up the actual battery life, rather this new larger battery will be used to keep the iPhone 5 battery life consistent with what we see on the 4S.

Its looking increasingly likely all jokes aside that the 'new' iPhone is going to have the TV remote control look

Or the larger display and LTE radio? As indicated in the article?

if battery life stays the same or close to the same on LTE, that is amazing. truly something that android devices have yet to accomplish. and that would mean with LTE turned off, you'd see improvement in battery life. this is a big selling point to me.

Regardless its still a glorified app drawer with LTE and slightly larger screen.. LTE will drain power like crazy regardless but any smart Android/IOS user would simply turn off 4g when they are not using it and Wifi when available to get the most out of their phones.

What exactly would you call it? "A high class application display" it has rows of icons.. for you it may be something different.. for Android users its an app drawer.

its just so, so, so tired. every thread you open, there is the same dozen or so comments. its been that way for several years now. we get that you don't like iOS. dont use it. dont open these articles. you're either obsessed with bashing the iphone to justify your own phone os preference or you're just a troll. either way, its really sad.

I enjoyed iOS when it was released but it got stale.. I have used all of the iPhones.. tried to get back into it and enjoy it but I always go back to Android just because its open and I enjoy it. I don't like Apple especially as of late and it will be the same cliche reasons such as its locked down.. slight upgrades between the new iPhones and of course the moot lawsuits. I read the articles because I enjoy seeing whats going on in the tech world and to me its interesting. I post if I feel inclined, I don't post to get a response that's trolling. I post my opinions and my thoughts on your post was they are hardly changing anything in the new phone.. they could at least add some sort of widget or something other than the SAME app drawer style UI.. if you read again my comment said "LTE will drain power like crazy regardless but any smart Android/IOS user would simply turn off 4g when they are not using it and Wifi when available to get the most out of their phones." which is true for both camps so why you are so offended amazes me.. you see its an app drawer yet fight and say it isn't? You agree that LTE will be a power sink.. so whats your issue? Look at my previous phones.. I have used every version of the iPhone and paid for them out of pocket just to use them thus im not some blind fandroid its personal preference and have the right to be annoyed that Apple gives their customers the shaft every chance they get by giving incremental upgrades.

I think it's actually comical considering we don't know what the previous Iphones battery look like since you can't remove it from the phone. Why should we care what size it is, just as long as it's got great battery life that's all that should matter, lol

The battery looks smaller compare to the RAZR HD MAXX battery
