    Holy cow. I'm absolutely loving my new 7 Plus. Coming from a 6s that had the battery malfunction, this is just so hard to believe. I am coming up on almost 2 days without charging. Definitely pleased with this purchase!

    Great, I have also found my battery life has improved over my 6s plus and I couldn't be happier. Enjoy.

    I did not have 6s Plus, just regular 6s

    Do you have "Background App Refresh" on?
    If so, it might explains that battery consumption.

    If you stayed out of Facebook you might get a week before charges.

    Facebook is one of the only apps I ever force close. Try that and see if the usage for Facebook comes down.

    Haha, I get battery life like that out of my iPhone 6s as well. I'm not a SUPER heavy user. Actually, I got even better battery life out of my Windows Phones before the 6s. I think the record was something like 50 hours.

    I have location services for Nearby Friends disabled. That's the culprit. My Facebook app doesn't use that much of battery this way.

    I very rarely use the Facebook app on my phone. Almost exclusively use it on my tablet. It's just always being rogue and running in the background

    I've found with Facebook, if I keep location services off and keep auto video play disabled in the App, it does much better with battery use. I also keep Background App Refresh on for Facebook so it runs in the background more efficiently. But I find myself using the Facebook client app, Friendly +, more and more. I really like the dark theme it offers.

    My 6S+ battery was amazing and I have to say that I am a little disappointed in my 7+.. I think that I need to tweak it a little more. What bothers me is that it seems to vary quite a bit. Some days I dies half way through the day and other times I still have 60% at bedtime. I do plug it in everynight
