    I got my iPhone 5 battery replaced today at the Apple Retail store. I walked in with about 49% and after they finished, I checked my phone and it still showed about 49%. I asked them how come the meter shows the same. They told me the new batteries don't come fully charged.

    Is there any way to find out that they really replaced my battery?

    If you left your phone there to get the replacement, it would obviously drain a bit since it's turned on, but I doubt they just left it there and charged it back up to 49%.

    None of my apple devices came with the battery fully charged, the replacements didn't come with a full battery.

    You'd have to notice it in how it runs. If it runs much better, last longer etc, then they changed it.
    I highly doubt that they didn't. They probably did.

    Hahaha. IPhones and their batteries. Just carry a charger with you. Whether it is a new one or not, you'll be dead half way through the day.

    You wish. Unfortunately I'm another former iPhone user who got sick of the crap battery.

    Here it is. Plugged in as usual.

    My wife's problem now. And no, I don't like Samsung phones. There are many other options out there. My phone is a G2.

    As much as I love my iPhone 5S and feel like I am cheating on it to even look at something Android, I always wanted a Nexus 4 or 5!

    Download iBackupBot and check the number of cycles on the battery.

    Did they provide documentation saying that they changed the battery?
