    Yep. Auto brightness is on with push notifications for everything. How bad is your battery life on your iPhone 6?


    I guess this could be normal.... but I was getting better life on my 5s and I had everything pushed, now I don't. It says low signal but with those 2 bars I get 19 up & around 8 down.

    Those are the same stats I would get on my iPhone 5s. Not too shabby but not great either. The 6+ is so good

    Anyone else a bit disappointed with the battery life of their 6 plus? So far I've used it for about 2 and a half hours today.....no videos, no games, just some casual web browsing and facebook a little bit. My battery life has gone from 87% before I went to sleep, to 83% when I woke up, to 47% now. I even have features turned off such as background updates, most notifications, location services, and parallax effects! Could this have anything at all to do with the fact that I restored it from iCloud backup from my old iPhone 5 and simply placed the SIM card from that one to this new phone ? I usually do start as new phone, but couldn't this time due to thousands of important photos

    Wow. I never get that. Do you play music on your device? I think it's cause i play music for 5 hours at worth through my earphones on my device I never get those stats.
    A little. It depends on my day. Obviously yesterday, I didn't have time as it would show up in my used apps. I do a lot of surfing and streaming of YT to the ATV.

    Commenting further on my previous post, I am convinced that there is a battery drain issue with safari

    My Opinion About Battery phones on 3G / 4G

    4 hours of screen = BAD
    5 hours of screen = Media
    6 hours of screen = GOOD
    7 + hours of screen = Great


    Iphone 6 Plus has a solid battery but Iphone has 6!

    Good phone battery has to be good in 3G / 4G. In wifi is easy to be good!

    I'm on a mission to figure out how to get 10 hours of battery life out of my 6 Plus while also retaining the settings I prefer day to day. So far I've flirted with 9...

    Initially I wasn't all that impressed with the battery life, but now that I'm seeing 8+ hours of lifespan almost EVERY cycle I've charged, I'm more than impressed. If I can figure out a balance of settings that work for me and 10 hours of battery life, I'll do a damn cartwheel!

    I don't think you'll be getting past 9 hours, I'm a pretty heavy user and I'm getting close to, but I don't think it's possible to get over 9 with this phone. Could be wrong tho.

    I have never seen battery Mike this before on any android device. Not even my 5S was like. Almost an hour and still no movement in battery. And i used GPS... Not for long mind but still it was in use. If this keeps up, Apple would've set a new bar for battery life.

    The percentage could be stuck, I had an android Tablet that wouldn't show the correct percentage after a charge until I rebooted it.

    Also, I was charging my 6+ the other day, say it hit 98%, came back in 20 minutes and it was still on 98, then I came back after s little while longer and it was at 100.

    Yeah it wasn't stuck... Because it started going shortly after that... When your phone reached 98% and stayed there for a while it's because your phone was trickle charging. And some phones deplete the battery and then charge it again... I guess it's to maintain battery health...

    I left mine on LTE all night after a full charge, it's at 93% now, took it off the charger after 1 am or so.

    Yea but I use cloud magic to sync my email, it usually takes up just 1 percent of my battery, I also have a bunch of apps send me notifications throughout the night like twitch tv and tapatalk.
