    My iphone 4s battery is awful, after 7 hours of stand by, the battery goes 6-7% down and the phone is not connected to anything but the GSM signal. Here are my stats

    Your phone is floating around 90% original capacity. I'd say there is a buggy app on your phone that's causing your issue.

    After 7 hours of stand by, I'd expect that type of 'drain'.

    Try to turn some of the things that drain battery (background app refresh, etc) but I don't think it's right to have to turn off features just to have battery.

    If the battery doesn't work for you, look at getting it replaced.

    Here are all the apps that I have installed plus some games. Background app refresh is off, push is off, bluetooth is off, everything that I don't use is off.
    My guess is that whatsapp is the culprit

    1% drain per hour when not in airplane mode is perfectly normal. What's your problem here?

    That's a big number of apps :eek:
    If you leave them on at the same time, it will drain your battery.

    If you leave an App that is constantly using data, it will drain your battery.
    I use a message app that uses wifi/data and it drains my battery a lot more when I'm on data.

    There are many apps that are data hungry and will drain your battery.

    But again, I don't think your battery is bad. 7 hours of stand by, that's going to drain your battery any way, no matter what you do.

    I always kill all the apps in the background and when I go to sleep I turn off the WIFI but the phone is still connected to the carrier, I don't use airplane mode

    Turn airplane mode on, it stops all background activity, therefore saving a bit of battery.

    If you're home, you should leave Wi-Fi on. Wi-Fi uses far less power than cellular data.

    I just turn On wifi and leave it on, unless I'm put of the house in places without wifi. It turns off automatically a when the phone goes into standby afaik. I don't have to worry about tuning off 3G when wifi is connected or stleast I never have
