    Can't get over how great the battery life is on the 6! I never got stats like this on previous iPhones. Easily lasts me a day with heavy usage, light usage I can go two days! Lovin' it!

    I never had an complaints about the battery life on my 5s, but the battery life on my 6 is very impressive.

    Yup. Battery life good for me as well. My only requirement is for my device to easily get through a work day with moderate usage. Honestly, I haven't had a device in a long time that couldn't do that and trust me I've had them all. I mean it's good if your phone can last for days but seriously most people charge at night so I don't require a phone to run 24 hours on a single charge.

    I too have been very impressed with battery life. I feel like the 6's battery life was greatly undersold because of the hype surrounding the 6 Plus' battery.

    I am very pleased with battery life as well. Granted, we are not going to see the battery life of the 6+. When iFixit tore that thing apart...it is all battery in there lol. Which is great. But the fact that so many are seeing impressive results with the 6 is exciting since like Jake mentioned, it was never touted as a positive attribute.

    Battery life on my 5 has gone south. It's been draining very fast. I have removed all but the weather widget. I know they eat battery. But this drainage is like I've never seen before. If it's iOS 8, I hope Apple does something to fix it.

    Did you have your brightness cranked? Those numbers seem low compared to what I have been getting.

    2 hours 14 minutes use, 4 hours 14 minutes standby and at 40%.
    3 hours use and 8 hours 9 minutes standby, and at 29%
    3 hours 11 minutes use and 7 hours 12 minutes standby and at 9%
    3 hours 48 minutes usage and 10 hours 29 minutes standby at 31%
    5 hours 10 minutes usage and 11 hours 51 minutes standby at 20%.
    (These are all with 40% brightness and only 1 or 2 open background apps)

    I feel my battery is not as good as it should be. When I'm using apps, such as camera, safari, games, my phone heats up within 10 minutes of use most of the time. I've never had a problem like this on my iPad Mini. I've left games, many apps in the background for 2 weeks and the battery was still at 48%. Should I go to a genius bar for this problem?

    I had pretty good battery life on my iPhone 5, but upgrading to iOS 8 destroyed that. I got the 6 and the battery life is amazing, it trumps my 5. I was not expecting it to be this good.

    Maybe I have gotten 5 IPhones in a row that the battery has to be charged 2-3 times per day. From Heavy Use

    I think the Iphone is a great Phone the only real Problem the battery is absolutely horrible. Worst in the Industry

    So what is the consensus of battery life between the 5s and the 6? According to Apple, they're fairly the same. But I'm hearing it's considerably better?

    Antecdotally I think the battery is way better on the 6 than the 5s. At the end of the day there is way more batter left. I have not been monitoring it rigorously, but it seems to last much longer.

    Does home & lock screen include notification center widgets or just time while you are on those?

    For each individual app that has a widget, it should count battery percentage use against those apps and not the Home and Lock Screen.

    Much...much better than I thought it would be.
    I was getting a lot of low signal on day one then when the patch came out it seems to have gone away for the most part.

    Your phone is buggy. Obviously standby and usage can never be the same. It's clearly showing you the standby time for usage as well.

    Personally, battery life on the iPhone 6 has been disappointing. I could easily get 10 hours of usage on my old iPhone 5 (before I installed that garbage iOS 8) with 4g turned off. Doing the exact same on the iPhone 6, I can only squeeze it to 8.5 hours. That's less than what I'm used to. Shame!!!!
