I hope other party will do more research/confirmation on this , as I do not think it is a fair tactic.

Drop performance , that is sad. I have my iphone 7 for a year and i'm chargeing it somewhere between 2-4 days. Aproximatly 150 cicles for the hole year. Now my phone is 2/3 in performance and i dont think my battery has degraded so much. Maybe 3-5% at most. Thats just unfair.

I find it amazing that both battery tests were done at exactly 10:45 with exactly 80% battery. So... they what? They tested the old battery then shut down the phone, took it apart, replaced the battery, put it back together, rebooted it, then tested it again in less that 1 minute AND the battery levels happened to read the exact same? Result are a scam.

Where is the screenshot you mentioned?

First screenshot is grabbed from history, second one from bechmarks, Sherlock.

And the second screenshot’s date on the bottoms is about 1.5 hours later than the first screenshot.

I've got a huge performance improvement after I've replaced the almost dead battery with a new one on my iPhone 6.

You always get half when the low power mode is on. Try putting any iPhone in low power mode and run benchmark and you’ll see the performance drop.

Update: Geekbench can also be used for the ones of us on iOS 10 or lower. No problem ;)

One of my iPhones which is older (iPhone 6), and definitely has a worn out battery is on iOS 10.2, unable to download the app - requires iOS 11. Some other options for testing, @iClarified?

The app in the screenshot and the app in the link is not the same?
