What's "normal" in terms of iPhone 5 battery life?

I'm getting up to 36 hours iPhone 5 battery life with light use. I thought that was really good! Anyone else using an iPhone 5?

I usually get about a day and a half out of my battery, lasts all day and then until early afternoon the next day. But I do dive in and out of a few games so if I didn't game as much then I'd agree that I could probably stretch it to 2 days.

I have been using an iPhone 5 for a week now. And I'm very much surprised by its battery performance. With the kind of usage that made the Note 2 pack in after 28 hours and the SGS3 after 8, I'm getting through a full day and then on to lunchtime. It's probably the best smartphone in THIS regard that I have used the past 18 months or so.
I have 3 busy email accounts on push. 2 busy Twitter accounts. A Tumblr, 2 dozen or so SMS/day, couple of calls, 1/2 hour video and plenty of photos, photo 'editing' and uploading... Then I'm trying quite a few apps. And where I usually disable 3G and WiFi on my regular phones, I have both ON most of the time on the iPhone 5. I don't know what people are doing who experience poor performance. I can honestly say batterywise it's very very impressive.
If I stopped trying out so many apps, disabled 3G where there is none, anyway, and kill WiFi when out and about I should easily get through 2 days.
