Yep, that looks good. That's about what I get.
Very nice.. so you're taking a pretty big bite on the battery as well to stick with iOS7? I am at 1 percent now with 4 hours and 52 minutes of usage. But it's a beta... and has a few more to go. I got around 6 and a half to 7 hours with heavier internet and internet intensive app usages on 6.1.4, is that normal for this beta? Also my battery is new and got my phone replaced recently, so I find it odd that it's cut THAT short, even for a beta.

I think that's good, but they frequently seem to have battery fix updates on the early versions of new firmware. My daily driver is an iPhone 5 that's jailbroken on 6.1. I think I usually get less than 5 hours with heavy Internet usage on it, but I top my phone off throughout the day and I don't pay close attention to it like a lot of people do. I have the beta on a 4S for testing. The battery life seems about the same as 6.x to me.
