    I found that the battery percent worked perfect in iOS6. However, it seems to be very wonky now. I have had the phone shut down ahile showing 3% battery left. I once had it drop from 20% to 13% in a minute or two... only to go back up to 18% after. Is anybody else experiencing this?

    Yep, since the betas. I think my battery life might be fantastic, but I can't get a good read because of this. Hoping the next update addresses this issue.

    I have the opposite issue. I normally get about 20 more minutes of use (not standby but actually using the phone) when I hit 1%. Never had it shut down early. Not sure why the experiences are so varied.

    Are you having the problems in 7.0 or 7.0.2?

    I had this problem too. Incorrect battery % and my battery seemed to drain faster. At one point it was fully charged and with on 3 hours of use it was down to 10% and then it shut down. So I was looking through the forums and some of them said to to restart the phone. Backup. Erase all content and settings and let it reboot and then restore from the previous back up. It worked for me. My battery than went back to being normal the way I'm used to using my phone. So for those having battery issues, trying restoring your phone. Maybe it will work, maybe it won't but I'm just telling my experience.

    This happens for me too. Seems like that last 1% is a reallllllly strong 1%.

    Wow happened to me right now... Was at 20% and jumped to 10 in less than a minute. I also had problems when my phone shuts off at 20% and down
