    I’m at 21% with 3hr 53min usage and 7hr 18min standby.

    Is that bad

    Looks bad to me. Says 12 hours internet browsing in the specs. So let’s say 10 hours would be good.

    You have to remember, battery life is highly subjective. Settings, applications and overall usage greatly varies. It's difficult to have an accurate metric for battery life.

    Please post your battery usage pic. ...meaning all the apps that you were using.

    It says:

    YouTube 1.4 hrs on screen - 2.1 hrs background 53%

    Safari - 2.3 hrs on screen 18%

    Home & Lock Screen - 1.9 hrs on screen 6%

    And yeah that’s the bulk

    Based on your usage from just the top 3 things, I think you are on par. YouTube takes a lot of power. Plus your background usage for YouTube is insanely high. Try closing out the app when you are done.

    Actually nevermind, I've had my iPhone plugged in so the Youtube data etc isn't correct. It would be much less usage of those 3 apps for the 21% battery I had when I posted this.

    I made a genius appointment, although I hate having to go tbh

    12 hours? More like third of that. OP, your battery life looks fine if you are using the phone heavily

    Yeah I’m getting about a third of that. 12hrs just sounds like another universe at this point lol. I don’t see it happening unless there really is a severe defect with my 8.
