    Battery life is about 2-hours more based on normal usage over the 6S / 6S+ (roughly)

    Some get better life, some get worse life. All depends on your day-2-day usage.

    I've only had mine a few days but I'm getting great battery life. My last charge I used it two full days and still had over 50% charge left.

    No, absolutely no reason to do that. Has no effect on the charge, or life of the battery. Charge when you want and/or needed.

    hello

    the first two days the battery life is aweful. the reason is for all downloading and playing around with it. making pictures and try this.... after a week you get a solid little pocket mac that last all day and more. however if you the person and check all the time you may find yourself on the charger around 5pm.

    The battery life I was getting with the iPhone 7 exceeded my expectations and was slightly better than my iPhone 6S Plus. I'm hoping my iPhone 7 Plus exceeds my expectations as well. I'll know in a few days, especially after I set it up as new.

    This is very nice to hear. Better battery life is something we all want more of. Waiting for the day when Apple says the phones lasts 2 days.

    I must use my phone a lot more than most .. i have never been able to go more than a day without having to charge. Like everyone, I use social media apps, news, and occasional YouTube .. no games.. also only use middle of the road brightness. But my wife does complain I'm on my phone a lot.

    These screenshots look pretty promising.


    Are you guys doing clean installs, or restoring from backups?
