    Got my jet black (128 gb) iphone 7 last monday. Charged it to 100% for the first time last night and it started having some issues. First, the screen would not turn on (didn't respond to any buttons and could not even turn it off) but when i plugged in the iphone the screen turned on. I restarted and the battery level went from 95% (before) to 90% (after restart). I used it for a while and then restarted again and then the battery level went to 100%. Restarted couple times again and no significant change in battery % after. Today, the battery is draining like crazy on standby, about 10% an hour.
    - No issues with the performance at all
    - No overheating
    - Battery level never dropped below 15% since i bought it
    - Even before these issues, battery life was not great (i was getting about the same usage as my two year old iPhone 6 plus)

    If you are close to an apple store, let them run diagnostics.

    They can run diagnostics over the phone too
