    Hi...
    I have my iphone 5s for a month I guess it's battery life is awful

    with 2% charge:
    usage: 6 hours, 30 minutes
    Standby: 15 hours, 42 minutes

    is that normal or not??

    If you have 2% left at that rate it seems to me you are doing fine. Also once a month let your phone die and shut off to condition your battery and you will be fine.

    Not too shabby. I'm a power user, mine doesn't last that long.

    I edited my post but that still is not bad at all. You are using all of your battery.

    Yes you are doing fine and remember what I mentioned about letting your phone turn off once a month to cycle your battery.

    That's pretty good usage. I only get on average 5 hours to a full charge. But I'm on my phone all the time

    I would love to get that battery life with my phone lol. I'm charging mine by the end of the workday, but with that said I am on it constantly for work.

    It's got an incredible idle time. I've been mostly using my 5c.
