If you just got the phone it will get better with time. The phone seems to calibrate after a few charges and you use the phone less. So far I'm between 6hours and 21+ hours but I use my phone a lot.
There are already a few threads on battery users and their battery life:
928 battery life

^ He's right. A lot of people have had big improvements with battery life as they use the phone more. How long have you had it?
I think that you'll end up with really solid battery life, but if it stays like this and you're at the end of your two-week return period, I would definitely exchange it for a new device. Two weeks of 4-5 hour battery life would be indicative of a problem, I think.

I got it pretty close to when it was released. I've done soft reboots, since. Also anytime I get an opportunity during the day, I have it charging. I checked out the battery life forum when I had the 822 but I'll check it again. I'll keep you updated.

Got my 928 on the day they were released. For the past couple weeks the battery had fallen off dramatically. Only real change in the phone were updated applications. I deleted several that I didn't use very often and must have gotten the culprit in the process. the past couple days the battery has improved quite a bit. I used the phone heavily yesterday and still had 50% when I went to bed.

Yah, last week Monday, I updated like 11 or 12 apps, battery was junk for next 3 days, did a soft reboot and fixed what ever application was being a battery hog. been in and out of office, browsing in LTE in a basement server room (low signal) phone, texts, pictures, 4 email accounts... and I am at...78% Been off charger for about 10 hours.

I've had a couple instances where something must have gotten stuck, massive battery drain as a result.
As of now though, with 49 charges that Battery Sense has tracked, my average battery life is 1 day. With a longest run of 47 hours and 52 minutes (was still on at 6% when I plugged it in, too).
Right now it is telling me I have 7 days and 18 hours of discharge time left, :P :D

Why don't people charge over night? These are not NiCad batteries. They don't have memory.
Anyway, somebody posted in another thread about some apps don't close/suspend properly. I think the example used was Angry Birds Star Wars... they hit the start button and it was still sucking battery in the background. Totally not the way it's supposed to work. That could be the reason. I've been getting awesome life out of my 928. Better then my 822, which was pretty good.

I don't know but for my use which is not heavy, I'm getting 36 or more hours per charge. Off the charger at 0600. Go to bed at 2200 and still have 60% or more. Wake up the next morning and go all that day. Hit the sack at 25% left. Almost 2 days... I'm on wifi most of the time and just text and make a couple calls a day.
Been this way for the last 8 or 9 days. Thought it was a fluke but that's what it's been doing. I charged it last night and almost 6 hours later I'm still at 99%. This is as good as my iPhone 4 was.
Normally I would just plug it at night. I'm very happy with the battery life.

In 4 hours I am down to 57%. I barely used it. I went to watch the Carolina panthers practice fully charged. I restarted my phone in case anything was running in the background. I took about twenty pictures, used GPS for 8 minutes, texted and made a couple of phone calls. Its telling me I have 3 hrs left. I didn't play any games. I only got on the web to find a restaurant which is why I used the GPS for 8 min. That was the last thing that I used. Any idea what's going on?
Update: now 47%

Bottom line is mine was doing the same thing as yours and now it seems like it's back to normal. I have no idea why this occurred or whether it's going to happen again.
