    One of my major problems with my iPhone is the battery. On a regular day I have to charge it at least twice and sometimes even 3 times if I'm using it a lot. I normally get about 3-4 hours usage and about 7-9 hours standby.
    Heres my results from iBackupBot

    CycleCount: 378
    Design Capacity: 1430
    FullChargeCapacity: 1250
    Status: Success

    BatteryCurrentCapacity: 89
    BatteryIsCharging: true
    ExternalChargeCapable: true
    ExternalConnected: true
    FullyCharged: false
    GasGaugeCapability: true

    Is this good or bad? I feel like my battery is quit bad and was thinking of getting it replaced but I'm not sure whether it would improve etc.

    Even a new battery will go to only the 1300 range but that would give you some additional time. Sounds like you are using your phone a lot to have to charge that often.

    Are you saying that you need to charge it twice to get 3-4 hours of usage? That is not right. What are doing for those 3-4 hours.

    That sounds like pretty normal battery life for a heavy user.

    Spend the money on a second tank battery case.

    If phone feels warm all the time, some background tast is burning through the batt.
