iPhone 5S/iOS 7 Incredible Battery Life

I'm literally in shock at how well my iPhone 5S fared through my longest day on campus.

I've had previous iPhones: 3G, 3GS, 4, and 5. Also I've had a few Android devices: Galaxy S2, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4 (my most recent phone). None have ever even come close to getting through a day like this with the same amount of use.

I'm not a heavy user. I don't game or watch videos. That being said, my previous devices still couldn't handle my workload without needing a charge.

My day started at 7:25 AM and ended at 9:50. Approximately 14.5 hours. I spent the entire day on LTE, no WiFi whatsoever. I have a still wallpaper, parallax off, background refresh off, auto-update off, auto-brightness on, and location services on. Generally, my usage consists of texting, a few calls, constantly checking/responding on Facebook/Instagram/Emails, light browsing, and Spotify (offline playlists). Today I took quite a few pictures (burst photos) as well and even took a few Slo-Mo videos.

I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I'm not sure if this is the iPhone 5S or iOS 7 or even my usage being not that crazy. Any thoughts? Anyone getting the same results?
