    Well.. to make the story short,

    I've been stuck on %1 battery life for the past well let's just say.. good twenty minutes or so. I mean that's quite amazing but is something wrong with my phone or something?

    I'm waiting to drain the phone so I can fully charge it back up.. and it wont drain. Lol.

    +1 battery has been at 1% for about 30 minutes. Very strange.

    It's the same battery life as 4s ... I get 2% per hour with all push stuff on ...

    Same life as 4s is actually good considering larger screen , faster CPU, etc etc

    No need for calibration ... Use it normal for about 4-5 hours and then it will drain normally

    It's because the battery calibration is off - As in, the battery isn't actually at 1% charge, but the sensors aren't sensing the capacity properly, so the battery indicator isn't tell you the right percentage. It's happened to me before :)

    Is it best to let battery drain all the way and then charge completely? Not sure if that is necessary?

    Heck, at 1% I'd just plug it in. Seriously. :)

    Apple battery care recommends deep discharging battery once a month but I'm not sure that's necessary. Newer batteries don't like it.

    The battery meter is off. To calibrate the meter you need to run it all the way down till it shuts off and charge it till you see a plug on the battery icon.

    Same happened to me...got down to 1% and it literally stayed there for at least 2 hours! I'm sure it's a calibration issue...I got the phone with about 60% charge, charged it to 100% and then depleted it. It's not plugged in for a full charge over night.
