    Current iPhone 6 Plus user here. Battery life has been woeful, even after configuring power savings via several methods in combination. Is the iPhone 7 (7+) any better?

    The new chip in the 7/7+ is more efficient so I'm sure it's probably a little better. But, I'm not one that keeps data on runtime to compare.

    I'm sure one of my compadres will have a more detailed analysis of their experience with the 7/7+ battery vs previous iPhones.

    Welcome to iMore by the way, @toxiccowboy! Glad to have you aboard and we look forward to seeing you around the forums!

    I have the iPhone 7 Plus and I get great battery life! Before I used a 6S and the Plus gives you that much more!! Complete phone with the 7 Plus. Doesn't lack much.. Battery usually can last up to two days for me! I'm just an average user.

    I don't know about compared to the 6 Plus, but compared to my 5S and my girlfriend's 6... yes. My 7 Plus outlasts them both by a significant margin.

    My 7 easily gets me through an entire day without issues. I very rarely have to charge during the day -- even when I have windows of free time like on Saturdays when I sit through 4 hours of rehearsals for my children and have nothing to do but play on my phone. It does well for me.

    Iphone 7 battery life has been great for me. On days I had to use Waze, about an hour, I could still get 20% by late evening. I'm an average user who don't play much games.
