    Hello everyone.

    First of all congrats with your new Iphone SE purchase! I preordered mine but it won't be arriving until April 18. So I am using this time to gather more info about this phone in particular the battery life. I don't like big phones and my s6 battery sucks so I'm really looking forward to getting SE. For those who already got the phone and had a chance to play with it please reply with your battery usage in this thread. It would be greately appreciated! Thank you!

    Hopefully this kind of battery life will continue. Definitely the best phone I have used in terms of battery life.

    I unplugged at 6:45am this morning, used it as normal throughout the day and am sitting at 52% now at 5:50pm.

    I was using Tapatalk a lot today and checking in here so that was the biggest drain. I know it takes a week or so for the battery to settle in, so we'll see.

    Do you need to pay any charge to unlock your phone?

    No you don't need to pay for that. It is a sim free phone not tied to any carrier you can use it pretty much anywhere in any country.
    Basically you pay a full price for the phone without carrier subsidy.

    8 hours of usage, if not "cheated " by music listening, are a very good result. Indeed.

    After two full days of using the device I'm loving the battery life. It's been off charge since 8am, it's now 11pm. Battery is at 9% with 7hrs of screen time. (This also included 2 hours of music, constant WhatsApp all day due to work, 40 mins of Netflix and regular Twitter/Discord checks)

    Loving it so far!

    Exactly what I was hoping would prove true with the SE. Can't wait to get my Space Gray unlocked 64gb in. Wish they offered 128 but oh well.

    Looks like this is a real winner, regarding battery life.
    Just wondering, if it's achieved by staying connected to a stable wifi network or a reliable 4G/LTE network?
    My 5S does an excellent job when on wifi (web browsing/reading/a little bit of foruming/using Instagram/few phone calls), and screen on time is ranging between 6 to 7 and half hours of use (not constant usage).
    On 4G, screen on time gets reduced.

    Enjoy your new devices, everyone.

    My stats for day 3 were achieved using a stable wifi connection. But on day 1/2 I achieved a similar usage using a stable 4G/LTE connection for approx 9 hours with the rest using wifi.

    From what I can tell, using LTE has little affect on battery compared to wifi.

    All in all, this phone wins using both
