i have bought a refurbished Iphone 5s with IOS11 and i want to know if the battery health is good
my battery score is : 906
time elapsed : 1h40min
here is the link of my results :

1) So what can we say about this battery ? It has almost 900 charge cycles (with ibackupbot)
2) Why work is 100% and other Iphone 5s are about 50-70% ?

    Thanks for reaching out to us about this. Geekbench battery scores are best understood in relation to scores on other devices, and it appears that a score of 906 is within the expected range for an iPhone 5s. See these results for comparison:

    A higher work percentage over the length of the battery test may indicate that a device is able to perform more work in the same time period than another device. Small variations can occur due to background processes and other factors. I haven't seen any iPhone 5s devices that have a sustained work percentage under 70%; above that seems to be more typical.

    All the best,

    Ok, thx for these informations Colin!
    One last question : can we compare geekbench 3 and geekbench 4 battery results for the same device ?

    Have a nice day

    No problem, and please excuse the slow response. Geekbench 4 battery benchmark scores are not designed to be compared to Geekbench 3 battery benchmark scores.

    When will the Geekbench 4 battery results become available in the online browser for comparison then?

    We're working to roll out battery benchmark comparisons in the Geekbench Browser as soon as possible. I'm afraid that we don't have a release date set at the moment, but I'll let you know as soon as I can when the update is prepared.

    All the best,

    Do you know what a 5s with a brand new battery would have as a battery score?

    Mine ranges between 905 and 957. I'm wondering whether it is worthwhile to replace the battery.
