    Mine is way better than my 5s was. I use to have to charge my 5s at work most days. I'm quite satisfied with the battery life on my 6.

    I have statistics from a few days, would someone mind telling me if they are average or pretty crap?

    At 2 hours and 14 minute usage, and 4 hours 14 minute standby, I was at 40%.

    At 3 hours usage and 8 hours 9 minutes standby, I was at 29%.

    Haha yeah I guess so. Have you tried turning off Background App Refresh? This has saved me a lot of battery by turning things off I don't need.

    I also use about 40-50% brightness all the time and keep Bluetooth off most of the time as well.

    I also have that much brightness and I have the app refresh on, but only for things I actually use, such as 3 or 4 applications.

    That's a little odd. I only have about 5 apps selected in Background App Refresh as well.

    Yeah, I figured so. My phone also keeps getting hot after 5-10 minutes of use. I'm taking it to the genius bar next weekend. Hopefully they can figure something out!

    Haha, thanks! And btw, when you go into camera, do you have several blurry strange/weird lines at the start that disappear after a minute or two? This happens sometimes only.

    No, that hasn't happened to me. That's definitely Genius Bar material though.

    Looking pretty good today. The battery life seems pretty decent so far, but nothing impressive.

    I'm actually quite pleased with the battery life on my iPhone 6. The day I got it I had to travel to an area with very poor connection so it got toasted, and eventually a chose to put it on airplane mode when I wasn't using it but otherwise, in areas with normal connection, it's pretty good.
    I did tweak my settings a bit, with respect to brightness and location services on certain apps, and my wifi is off unless I need it, but I do not need to charge it everyday.

    I am absolutely impressed with the battery on the 6. Normally unplug at 6 am and by 3:00 pm I'm sitting at 50% with normal/high use (all over wifi). My 5S would die by 12:00pm, so yeah I'm stoked!!!!

    Using intense safari for 15 minutes on the Iphone 6
    How many per cent the battery% drops?

    My Iphone 5s consumed 1% every 3 to 4 minutes

    You nailed it!
    I've used all platforms, found Apple to be Solid no matter what happens!
    Funny everyone comes to bash them, then try to substantiate why they bought the platform they are using.

    Apple works and works well! When it works for you, why go elsewhere.
    Found customer service to be top notch whenever I have had any issues.

    Just my two cents

    For some like myself that restored from iCloud back up at time of purchase and aren't totally satisfied with battery life - reset settings. Yes it can be that simple.

    With my usage I've been satisfied. 100% charge in the morning and 11 hours later with moderate/kinda heavy usage my phone usually is showing 55-65% charge.

    After owning a 6 Plus briefly, my first impression of the iPhone 6 battery was that it wasn't the terrible battery I was expecting.

    It's definitely better than my Galaxy S3, but that's not saying all that much. It's actually not much worse than the Note 4 I also had briefly.

    It gets me through my work day without an issue.

    Here is my usage for today, and in still at 71%. I was in some low to no signal areas today for 3-4 hours as well.

    I closed all applications.
    I rebooted the machine
    Again made sure that did not have any open app
    I turned off the key to the background app in configurations.
    I turned the screen and let the phone for hours at all stanby with wifi and 3G connected

    I realized that the use of time marked a few minutes even the screen being turned off and no background app


    I did some tests using the phone lasts 1 hour constantly with brightness by 20% Navigation safari and social networks
    In one hour of use consumed 15% battery
    Again performed the test by about 5 times and the average was 14% to 16% for 1 hour of constant use

    Right at the very least with my type of use ....
    100/16 = 6.25 of screen time


    However the use of time BUG with the screen turned off and no running in the background app is a reality for me.
