    I have drained the battery yesterday, left it for about 4-5h then started charging it, I've just unplugged it (after about 16h) and it's showing that the battery is at 94% :S how can that be? :confused:

    Probably the meter or whatever it is that measures the battery capacity is not working.

    What happens when you just restart the phone? I have a 4 not a 4S but I have noticed that after an overnight charge it will sometimes show 98% or 99% which it never did before with 4.3.3 or lower. After a simply restart it shows 100%. This is a software issue I believe. Don't return your phone.

    If I was you I would try first restarting the device, if that doesn't work restoring and setting up as new phone and if that doesn't work taking it to the apple store for a replacement.

    it's still showing 94% after restarting. I have set the phone up as new when I first got it

    ----------

    btw I had the same thing a few days ago, I plugged it back in and it went up to 100% within a min or 2

    Same issue. Usually shows 98-99% after charging. My evo used to do this. I would not worry about it much.

    Similar with me with my phone (iPhone 4). Don't return your phone unless you have another problem. Hang in there. You could return your phone (assuming it is working well) and end up with a jaundiced display or all sorts of other problems and then you will be pissed.

    If I was you I would set it up as new one more time.

    I would try another FULL discharge and recharge before doing a wipe and restore. Run the battery down to the point where the phone shuts off, then give it a full change and see what happens.

    Let the battery completely drain to reset the battery meter.

    Take ur phone UBS cable and wall adapter to genius bar at apple. Friend of mine had this problem we went to apple and his wall adapter was no good. Did not allow the phone to charge to 100%. We remembered a few years agog apple had a recall on those wall adapters so we took it there and he got a new wall adapter and his charging issue is gone.

    My iPod would do this. Sometimes it would stop charging at about 97% but once I unplugged it and started using it, the percentage would actuall increase.
