    20 minutes of screen on time, 60% battery life. What the hell is wrong with the iPhone 6s? Is it meant to get this bad after less than half a year?

    Changing the colours of your icons is pretty much the only thing I use it for. I don't see how that would affect the battery this badly

    Well at least your post was filled with pertinent facts and no hyperbole to substantiate your title.

    you never know what the jailbreak is doing in the background. maybe you installed some things that are always running. Just make a clean install and then:

    turn off background activity,
    set brightness to around 30-45 %
    turn off unnecessary icloud servcies
    dont use iphone speakers for music playback
    also check if your emails are on push.
    in that terms it should run very well

    If that's not sarcasm... Thanks I think?

    Yes I'm aware of that, that's why I don't install any tweaks unless I know if they're battery hogs or not. I have 10 tweaks over all, none that should require any battery activity (Zeppelin, winter board, springboard theme etc)

    All ur other tips have already been done before taking the pic. I've turned off anything that drains battery

    What does the usage counter show? You didn't show it and you just counted what those apps showed for screen on time(which by the way accounts for the last 24 hours and not just the current charge cycle). Like others have said, especially considering you're jailbroken, there might be some stuck system processes constantly running in the background.

    You bet. Sarcastic? No way. Seriosuly, what's not hyperbolic about, "Worst Battery Life of Any Smartphone"?

    Plus you substantiated this obviously valid claim with your usage habits, system settings, and steps you've taken to attempt rectifying this issue.

    Everything sounds on the up and up to me. Next step, call the major 24-hr news networks.

    So the actual question is basically what's wrong with your particular device?

    Your phone shouldn't be draining the battery by 40% in 20 minutes, so there is an issue somewhere. I have to a agree with others, to make sure it's not hardware related restore the phone back to stock iOS and see what happens. I understand you've not intentionally installed something which has known battery drain issues, but by Jailbreaking you are using the phone different to how Apple intended. It the problem persists after restoring stock iOS get Apple to take a look as it looks like a hardware issue to me.
