    Hi all,

    I'm on a borrowed iPhone 4S. It looked to be in good shape until I realized the battery's terrible. If I'm using it fully-charged (whatsapp, some light internet browsing, locator on), it uses around 10% in 10-20 minutes, and at about 50% it shuts down and says out of battery. When I plug it back in and turn it on, the battery's around 40%-50%.

    I'm running the latest OS.

    What gives? Any ideas?

    Many thanks

    Sounds like a bad battery and realistically the most likely thing that would actually help is replacing it.
