    Default How's battery life treating you?

    Just curious, gonna buy a 7 Plus as soon as I can. I've always heard great things about the Plus models having great battery life. I'm looking forward to not having to charge mid day anymore.

    Battery life has been good to me on my iPhone 7 Plus 256GB. I played a little Smurf's Village and Asphalt8, ran 90 minutes with Runtastic on the background. Took a lot of photos, been on iMessage non-stop, almost non-stop on the forums. Also downloaded 400 songs for offline use.

    I'd say this is real good.

    I wish I had the 256gb but the 32gb is going to have to do.

    I had both a 6 plus and a 6s plus that I use now as a iPod mainly. I get a day easily and I used to work in an area of really bad signal. I have always gotten about 10 to 12 hours of USE out of it. Best battery I've ever used

    I've never seen battery life like I'm seeing on my 7. At 19% now...pretty crazy. Click image for larger version.

    On my iPhone 5, running GPS with the CycleMeter app, battery would die after 2-3 hours, so I
    taped a battery pack to the frame of my bicycle, just so I could finish my ride.

    Yesterday with my 7+, went for a 4 hour ride.
    Battery was at 100% when I left.
    92% when I got home.
    YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!

    4 hours of GPS only drained 8% of my battery.
    I am very, very happy with battery life.

    The battery life is incredible. If you have to top off mid day then you used it for pretty much the whole day with the screen on the whole time. I get 2 days routinely and typically have a little bit extra on day two on the weekends. I get anywhere from 10-12 hours of usage per charge cycle with probably 8 hours of that, or more, with the screen on. I got down to 48% yesterday and woke up this morning at 44%, topped it to 65% before I got to work and am currently at 54% after 2.5 hours of listening to music on Google Play Music with my Apple Watch and bluetooth headphones connected the whole time. Sent a ton of texts, have done some forum browsing during a 15 minute break and have generally been using it non stop since unplugged.
