Like many here, I bought the app to check the state of the iPhone & iPAD batteries to see if they should be replaced (due to a drastic drop in performance after an IOS update) . In my case I got a battery score of 1157 for an iPhone 6.

The problem is there is no easy way to determine if it is under performing. Can you....
1. Add a tab to the IOS Benchmarks page for battery ?
2. Make the browser sorted by model rather than uploaded time (which is useless) and then by runtime and score?
3. Display the expected benchmark results of a device when new?

    Good idea, my iphone 6 battery score is 1312 so not the worst but again unsure what it should be. My report shows work spiking between 80% and 100% from a battery level of about 75% to 55% before flat-lining at 80% until the battery is completely flat. Again I'm unsure if this is normal or a problem.
    cheers, Les

    My iPhone SE returned 1770 while maintaining 100% or 99.X% work for the entire test (2:46:40)

    On the results page there's a battery tab with a battery comparison but it doesnt make much sense. a 5s is supposed to be 370. My battery can't be 4x+ better.

    They should introduce a bell curve so you can see where your phone sits in the pack and then let you filter for battery age ie if your battery is brand new, is there varience in those batteries? How does my compare?

    2:46:40 is exactly what my SE chart says.....but my test took exactly 3hrs.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reaching out to us, and I'm sorry for the confusion caused by this. We will be rolling out more features on the Geekbench Browser soon to facilitate comparisons for battery results. We also intend to release more documentation about the battery test which may clear up some confusion, and we are planning to release an update which clarifies some benchmark functionality in the app itself. There is currently an issue causing some battery benchmark scores in the comparison page to be inaccurate, which will be corrected in an upcoming update as well. I'll let you know as soon as I can once we release these updates.

    All the best,

    Hi again,

    You can now search for Geekbench 4 battery results on the Geekbench Browser here, which may help provide some more context for your battery benchmark scores.

    All the best,
