One minute it'll show a certain percentage (usually low) and then 5 minutes later it'll show a different number?
Anyone else having this issue.
And ofcourse my battery life is horrible and I've followed every tip to gain life with no positive result.

Your only recourse is to either
1)go into settings, general, reset and erase and restore all settings or
2)restore the phone as new- back up your data and photos first
3)take it in to Apple and have them test it and possibly exchange it.

Things I have noticed is that Location Services, Notifications, Push, and WiFi ask to connect are the biggest battery hogs on the phone. Of course that takes away from some of the phone's usability, but it can give you between 30 minutes and 2 hours more usage, depending on how you use that phone normally.
