    battery is looking fine.

    Did you replace it or is it a new phone?

    Is it getting hot while using it?

    Or even in standby?

    What is your problem exactly?

    Try to restore the firmware and set it up as new without restoring a backup.

    That shoud help.

    Your battery is like new so no need for a new one. We need to know the history of this phone. Could be the previous owner had the battery replaced when they found a problem with the phone that you have inherited. Finding a 5 with so few battery cycles is rare unless it has been changed or new.

    Do a DFU restore via iTunes, and after you reload your backup and data, restore your settings, network and privacy. With this method you'll earn a lot of free space and battery life will improve.
