Re: How long is the 6s Plus battery life?
I'm going to help you here since logic seems to be evading you for whatever reason...

...notice how they are mirrors of each other in terms of battery life. Now using the powers of simple observation, and given the information we know about the new iPhone, Apple changed the specs of the battery on the new device by making it slightly smaller and giving it less storage capacity (in layman's terms). Now logic would tell us that this would lead to LESS battery life if all things remained the same, but the new iPhone COULD run more efficiently (and most likely does), therefore requiring less power to do the same activities, and yielding the same or better battery life.
Now reading your posts, I'm not sure if you have the ability to understand that not all users experience the same kinds of battery life averages...I thought this was a pretty elementary level piece of knowledge, but you know, you can never assume that around here...so to clarify, not every person is going to see the numbers listed on the spec sheet...in fact, the formula and method Apple uses to obtain those numbers is really not very relevant to most people's "real world" usage habits, so a more complete and legitimate battery life estimate comes AFTER release when people begin to report in what they're experiencing...from there you can better calculate how your own usages fall into the reports and how they compare and contrast, giving you a REAL WORLD consumption rate.
At the end of the day...the OP asked how long the 6S Plus battery lasts (that was his question in the thread title), and given everything that was just broken down clearly for you above, giving him/her an answer to this right now before the device is released is as good as answering someone who asks what the weather is going to be like this weekend...sure, we have a forecast to go by that has a pretty good possibility of being accurate, but anyone who has taken even a slight glance at historic battery life estimates from the manufacturer vs. real world results after release will know they can be very consistently different.
I mean if someone asks you how good the pictures are when taken with the 6S Plus, are you just going to report the megapixels and say "They are good, 12MP good." or are you going to wait until after the phone is released and people get a real world feel for how the camera performs?
The only person overreacting in here is you. You are making this huge dramatic event out of people suggesting the OP wait until after the release to see real world battery life estimates. You don't like it? That's your problem...you feel the tech spec sheet info suffices? Post a link and carry on. Your issue with the content of the relevant posts in here is totally irrelevant to me (and I doubt I'm alone on that)...you're trying to pick a fight against a group of people who gave a real world answer to OP's question. You're overreacting AND looking for trouble. Why do this? Is it your intention to try and make this personal? Because it seems like that given you're the first one in here who strayed into that arena...again, why?
