    It’s very early in the product life cycle, but anecdotally, I have found the battery life to be very good. I plugged my new iPhone 6 Plus into my computer to do the sync/setup when I first got it. It had about 80% battery when I started, and was up to about 93% when I finished. I played with it all afternoon and evening, and I was still at about 48% when I put it on the charger at bed time.

    That is on wifi mostly, but I was out of the house for a bit, and was using LTE. With my iPhone 5S, the LTE signal in my neighborhood is on the fringe, so it chewed through that battery pretty quickly. The 6 Plus did not seem to be bothered by the weaker LTE signal.

    Too early. Expect solid performance.

    I'm really happy with the battery so far but it's hard for me to judge considering my iPhone 5 was one of the ones with faulty battery. I was used to going from 100% to zero in a couple of hours (even faster off of wifi) so the iPhone 6 battery is like a dream come true, haha.

    Please tell us whether it's 6 or a 6+. Battery life in a 6+ is going to be way better then a 6.

    So far I think battery life in my iPhone 6 is great. Given the performance of the phone compared to my note 3 is fantastic.

    If you're asking me, mine is a 6. Not 6+.

    Tweak your settings. Is everything push? Some of my accounts are push but the majority is fetch, frequency varying on importance of account.

    My brightness is around 30%. Plenty for me.


    Also how's your reception?

    Bring down the brightness and bold your font.

    Also see if there are less important accounts that can go fetch at less regular intervals.

    Seems good. But I'll probably get a mophie (when it comes out) or a portable charger soon. I use most of the time on LTE because I'm not home, so my 5S had a 120% mophie all the time. I don't know yet because school starts on Monday and I wont use it that much on LTE.

    Do you mean that it lasted 22 hours on standby without any other use? Or it lasted 22 hours on standby, which includes 8 hours of usage?
