my fully charged phone only lasts for about 3 hours before the battery goes flat. What's wrong?

That replacement battery may not have the same capacity as a genuine battery. Many third party suppliers overstate the specifications of their products.

Do you have a Mac? If so, there is a free app you download from the web called Coconut Battery. When your iPhone is connected to your Mac and the app opened, it will show battery details including the actual capacity, manufacturer, age and charge cycles.

Can someone give me an idea how long a newly charged battery should last if the phone is turned on but unused, i.e. just sitting in your pocket?

I've solved the problem by deleting lots of apps including Safari. Now the battery only falls by 14% in 5 hours.

My iphone has been off a charge for about 23 hours, with minimal use, battery says 90%.
