My battery went from 100%-70% in less than 1.5 hours of usage. Is this normal?

Bluetooth Off
Wifi On
Brightness 65%



Thanks in advance for the help!

My advice is to do a dfu restore. I did ALL suggested resets and settings adjustments since 9/21, but today I did a dfu restore and all I can say is WOW. There has been a world of difference so far with the same usage patterns. Give it a shot and set up as new.

Do you mind explaining to me how to do so? Would you agree my battery life is subpar?

Yes it's normal since your phone has been off the charger for almost 12 hours.

How much of a difference does that really make? It's been asleep in my pocket for 90% of the day.

sleeping phone uses battery too. Really doesn't look bad to me.
Ok, but a DFU restore wouldn't harm anything either right? I have been having other problems besides battery life with my iPhone 5, including...

-Photos in Messages won't load, it's stuck at the Loading circle bar
-iMessage won't send on Wifi, has to resort to LTE
-Sometimes people say they called me and it goes to voicemail without me ever receiving a call

Could a DFU restore fix these?
