    I haven't had any battery life issues until today. I had full charge when I woke up this morning. Then watched 6 episodes of a show on Netflix and was down to 20 percent after just a couple of hours.
    What did you expect it to be at after all that streaming?

    The battery life on my 6 Plus has always been great. I took my phone off the charger this morning around 9:00 and it just dropped to 20%.

    Been using it pretty heavily. I also used navigation for a couple hours without plugging it in & I still had no problems getting through the day. If your battery life is still bad, maybe make a trip to the Apple Store, they can run a battery diagnostic & let you know for sure.

    Ok, after charging to full and a reset, battery much improved today. I used it less than usual but not tons less. Hopefully, it stays like this moving forward.

    eyecrispy, I didn't know the streaming killed that much of it that quickly.

    You must have that good unlimited data

    I'd definitely say reboot your device. My battery life is pretty good with everything turned on

    Is there a way to trade your iPhone 6 in for the Plus?

    Are you within your return window? If so, then yes. Otherwise, you can post something in craigslist to see if folks want to trade.

    Very true! I've never gotten scammed but I know it happens. I have a two fold verification method in requirement of the ESN to check before hand and determine if it's even worth meeting in addition to requiring we meet at Verizon for activation

    Haha. That was it. Lol

    1. I need to ESN to do a pre-check

    2. We meet at verizon to have this do a check at the point of transaction

    If check the ESN inside the phone against what I've already checked after we meet. Not a great deal you can do until you meet and have the device in hand. Been transacting this way for years now

    What do you expect? Videos with the screen constantly on will put a nice dent in the battery

    Only thing now with payment plans, it can be "clean" when you buy it, then a Month or two later they decide to stop paying and you have a paperweight.

    Hmmm. Not the impression I got from the CS rep when I was in the process of getting my 6. They had me thinking that an Edge user could so whatever they wanted with the device but if they opted to edge up, they had to turn in the device that they originally got on the edge program

    Food for my thought though

    They can do whatever. But if they stop paying and don't have the device, it gets blacklisted

    I mean most you won't have issues with. But that's one reason I'll pay more and get one brand new to have no worries.

    This is what I'm getting with mine. I've had this 6 plus since launch day and it's been pretty consistent.

    Valid point there! Wasn't always so complicated to transact via Craigslist.

    Agree. I used to do lots of deals via there. Too many crazy people and scammers these days.

    Try a reboot. My iPhone 6 Plus will easily go all day and night with moderate to heavy use. On my heaviest day of use with it thus far, I went to bed with 55% remaining charge after using it almost constantly for a minimum of 12 hours. Also, if you haven't already, it wouldn't hurt to install a fresh copy of iOS 8.1.2 and then set up the device as new.
    Not knowing how much you use the 6 plus, but I use mine fairly heavily day to day (mostly browsing the web, and occasionally playing games).

    I woke up at 9am today, and it's now 2:42pm and I've only got 45% left. I'd say it's way better than the iPhone 5s but still questioning how much battery I SHOULD as people have boasted.
