Anybody getting bad battery life on the iPhone 4s?

Before I exchanged for a replacement iPhone, I was getting at least 8 hours usage.

After the replacement I have been getting around 5~
I tried restoring my iPhone as well as putting it in DFU mode to restore but same problem.

I downloaded BatteryInfo from Cydia and it tells me battery is still new!
Currently my iPhone only has 20 charge cycles so I don't understand why I'm only getting 5~ usage instead of 8. :(:mad:

There are many people having a bad battery life on iOS 7 without any definite solution. I also got a bad battery usage with iPhone 5 on iOS 7. You can try to disable few features to see if there's any improvement.

I kid you not...8 Hours of battery usage after a full charge.
I know it sounds too good to be true...but that was what I was getting.
It was an iPhone replacement from Apple...but the iPhone kept respringing on its own so I had to get it replaced again.

I did all those settings adjustments to prolong the battery but still same problem.

I don't think it sounds too good to be true at all. I get 7 hours of on time on mine all the time, and I've seen no significant change between iOS6 and 7, stock or jailbroken. Most of it depends on the tweaks and apps used, and the brightness setting, auto brightness etc.

OP, what does batteryinfo say about the capacity? I just replaced my 500 cycle battery that was still over 90% healthy, so cycle count doesn't mean all that much.
