    How is battery life for most of you on your iPhone 7 Plus...really? Is anybody getting over a day with moderate to heavy use like some of the hype surrounding the Plus size phones would have you believe? Before I went to the bigger phone...I read about people getting 2-days plus! Heck, I'm not all that much better than I was on my 6/6s/7. I mean, a little bit better. It's at 40% at the end of a work day instead of 20% like my 7 was...but I guess I was expecting a more dramatic inprovement.

    Has battery live changed for you since "upgrading" to 10.1?

    I'm a power user. I run two businesses and constantly on my phone with emails and messaging. My downtime is in the evening with YouTube and browsing the net. I'm on phone calls about 45 min to 1hr a day (not a lot)

    Playing Mbius Final Fantasy with graphics and frame rate on high with sound I can get close to 6 hours sot.

    Barely get half that in my 6+. Same with my old LG G4. That's amazing battery life. I haven't tried without gaming but one day I will and I assume I can get 2 days because I'm not texting, talking, web browsing and on espn app that much lol

    A little better? 40% instead of 20%? That is 100% better. As for me, I am a relatively light user if the 7+, but have the phone on all the time and work in a place with virtually no cell reception in most areas. I make a few calls at night, but do my web surfing with my iPad. I am usually left with about 70-80% charge. On the weekends when I have better reception, I can go the entire weekend or even another day without charging.

    I am a lite to moderate user of my iPhone, and I get two days, easy. However, I don't have social media on my devices anymore, and after removing the likes of Instagram and Twitter a while back, battery life has been very good. In addition, I'm not sure if my Apple Watch helps, but, I seem to reach for my phone less and less...

    7-hours? Maybe not so bad...but not as worldshaking as maybe I'd come to expect.

    I do, however realize that big bright screens suck down battery life no matter what.

    Hands down the battery life on the iPhone is far far better than any other device, ahem Android. And that's not me just chirping, that's coming from someone who uses both regularly. However I do notice that the battery on the iPhone drains quicker while on phone calls, that's a battery strain for the device.

    I couldn't get past the BBM icon with 11% use. Didn't know people still used it on iOS. Are there ads in the app?

    Definitely not getting two days. I use my phone quite a bit. Streaming music, texts emails, checking news and sports and light phone calls. I comfortably get through a full day though and thats all I need. Never understood the need for multiple days. I charge my phone overnight every night.

    I'm a light to moderate user but usually get about 4 days.
    Although I did optimize some of the location settings. For instance I'm not using the track my locations feature.
    Also I've checked all my apps in the location setting seeing that only the ones that I really want have always acces to location. The others only when I use te app.
    Maybe that helps?

    I'm pretty happy with the results of the battery. PokemonGo did do the most with 39% usage but no biggie.

    I've never gotten two days out my phone. I have to charge every night. I'm a moderate user & I'm not impressed with the battery life on my 7+. My phone's battery is almost always low when I get home & must charge it. I set it up as a new iPhone when I received it in order to try & avoid any pre existing problems with my old 6+. So far, the battery life has been so-so.

    I'm a power user and too paranoid to not give my phone a charge when it gets below 60%. I could probably go all day but I end up plugging it in because I'm still used to the battery life from my 6. I guess I'll give it a try one day next week and not plug it in till the end of the day. Also, since the phone is new, I'm sure people are using it more than they did their last phones due to the new phone smell. LOL!

    It is definitely very good, compared to the old plus models but still pales in comparison to my backup Android phone, which is the only phone that can get me through a heavy day on one charge. By heavy, I am referring to 12-13 hours SOT. Granted iPhone didn't report SOT since last unplugged, so it is more of a guesstimate, but the iPhone definitely died much quicker and won't make it through my heavy day

    Well, my 7 Plus is getting over 7-hours of use time...which I guess is admirable considering other big-screen phones and their gluttony for battery life. Maybe I should just be happy, and I am. I guess I heard so much fanboy hype of 2-day-and-more battery life when the 6 Plus dropped that I thought it was to be expected.

    BBM is a known major battery drainer. Probably why 11% usage on battery

    I get about 8.5 hours usage on the 7. I get about 11-12 hours usage on the 7 plus.

    I end the day at 65 percent. I normally would end the day with my 6s at 25-30. Very happy.

    You get 11-12 hours on your Plus? Do you do any real-world mobile communication work like calls, emails, or texts during your day? Do you ever watch a video? Is your screen set on "dim"? Not saying you're wrong, but that's outrageous. How do you do it?

    2 days make sense if someone barely uses their phones, though.
    So it all depends on one's usage and settings.
