    My iPhone 5s is on 1% with 4 hours and 30 min usage and standby of 5 days.
    Is this a good battety or Is this bad? Should I bring it to apple?
    Thanks in advance.

    Edit. I have everything turned off. Even parallax.

    at least you get it to 1%. I've been trying to kill mine for a few cycles already and it dies anywhere between 20-30%. when I plug it in, it shows the % right where it left off or jump about ~10%.

    Oh no, Is my battery really horrible? If so, I'll exchange it before my 30 days are up. Ugh.

    That's pretty low. I keep wifi and parallax on and sometimes Bluetooth. Mine usually makes it to at least 6 hrs of use time. Sometimes 6 and a half.

    4,5 hours of usage and 5 days of standby??

    sorry but that is just fine...

    did everyone read the OP properly?

    Yeah, standby of FIVE DAYS is outstanding! I thought mine of 2+ days was pretty darn good, but I had 7.5 hours usage. Your battery is fine!

    Thanks guys. Didn't know what to think. :)
    Finally a good battery.

    Just a question:
    So even with 4 hours of usage it's still good at 1%?

    You probably could get 6 or 7 hrs if it all was during 1 day, not over 5 or 6 as you said. Your battery is fine

    Mine is freaking amazing. I am coming from a 4S.

    When I get home from work, my 5S can still have about 60-65%, before my 4S would have about 35%. I am amazed by my battery. Of course things like Facetime still kill it quickly but as far as everyday use and standby time, it's amazing. No complaints at all.
