Recently, Apple admitted that they intentionally slow down old iPhones to increase the battery life. The old Lithium-ion batteries can unexpectedly die if they are put under a lot of burdens.

This one is an amazing app to find out the iPhone/iPad battery condition. It is available for free in the App Store.
After installing the app you can simply launch it. To check the battery life tap on Battery Raw Data. The next screen will show you the current battery level and capacity. Basically, Capacity is the one you should look out for here. For me, it was 94% which I think is pretty awesome. I have been using this iPhone for more than 2 years now.
