Mobile carriers force phone manufacturers — even Apple — to “tweak” the battery meter and radio reception bars to indicate that you have more juice/signal than you actually do, especially when the juice/signal is weak. This is because users are far less likely to attempt to make a call when the battery is low or if the signal is weak. So they'll tell you you have 20% battery left when you only have, really, 10%. This is why, as you may have noticed, if you have 5% battery life left on your iPhone, it usually means you have maybe a minute or two left of phone time.
