Download and Run Coconut Battery on your Mac. It has an iOS option so you can go in and check the actual condition of your iPhone or iPad battery instead of just guessing.

It all depends on how much you use the phone, as well as other symptoms the phone is displaying. First of all, does the phone charge all the way to 100% when left plugged in? If so, look into how much you're using the phone. If you're browsing the internet and doing a lot of data heavy stuff, expect more drain. Also, if you're in a location with poor cell reception, your phone will use more battery searching for a signal. Try leaving the phone on Airplane mode for a day if you can (maybe turn it off once an hour) and see how the battery life holds up. If it's still bad you may want to look into replacing the battery.

Also for Windows users you can use 3UTools to check battery condition of iPhone and iPad batteries.

I'd say charging your phone two times a day or morning / night is normal. If the phone drains in like 4 hours of use then the battery is probably bad. Check battery condition first before considering replacing.

Update (05/22/2017)

Just check your battery health via computer using 3utools on windows or coconut battery on Mac.

If you have battery issues with the iPhone 5S, I highly recommend to try disabling the Parallax effect that was introduced in iOS 7.0

Make this change and test it for a couple days, it definitely helped me.

Settings > General > Accessibility and tap Reduce Motion to "on."

Its actually number 3 on the list of how to Stop iOS 7 From Killing Your iPhone Battery: http://mashable.com/2013/10/11/ios-7-bat...

Good Luck!

Danny.

PS Don't forget that the LCD screen being on is the biggest battery drain of all. If you are constantly with the screen lit, you should expect the battery to drain quicker than others are likely to experience.

Depending on your usage habits (ie watching Netflix all day) it could be normal, but if you just use your phone for calls/texts and occasional apps then it is most likely a battery issue.
