I get 5+ hours SOT and 2+ days use with stock kernel just fine...

I've seen in other threads that people have proved that the battery can last longer than the s4.

I get around 2-3 hours of screen time. If you don't mess with your phone and install custom kernels and undervolt and all that, I guess that's that you get. I would say battery is comparable to the iPhone 5s.

This is with sync off and location off btw.

I'm getting excellent battery life as well. On days of light usage I don't even need to plug it in when I go to bed, I just top it up while I get ready for work in the morning. On days when I use it heavily, I still have 30% or more left before putting it down for the night. Screen time varies from 2-5 hours, depending on what exactly I've been doing and how good my signal is. I have no issues at all with the battery performance, it's awesome.

Any bets on when dicecuber will appear in this thread to tell us how absolutely terrible the battery is?

Using Franco kernel, 4.5hrs SOT is a walk in the park. It's better than my SGS4 I came from.

Battery life is not a worry I get better time on this then any of my previous phones and have no worry's of it lasting through the day. Although I am a little jealous of my wife's insane battery life on her xperia z1.
