    Stoked, love it. It's fantastic and sexy. Couldn't be happier

    I am posting from my phone so I did not see a search feature so please forgive me if this has been a redundant question.

    I think* I remember reading somewhere that when you get a brand new iPhone the battery drains fast the first couple of uses? Is this normal? When I got home (set up the phone and iTunes in store) I had 31% (45 minutes ago?) it's now at 21% and I really haven't done that much. I talked to my wife for like 3 minutes, texted a few people and sent a couple of Facebook messages while checking out Facebook.

    This has me worried? Or should it not?

    Thanks y'all!

    It's not the device... it's you using it more because it's new... once your usage normalizes... battery life will be more stable too.

    Hmm I don't think so. It didn't have a full charge out of the box. When I got home it at 31% and it dropped 10% in less than an hour. I really didn't use it that much in 45 minutes. As I said, I sent a few texts had a 3 minute voice call, checked Facebook and sent about 3 Facebook messenger messages....

    Charge it overnight uninterrupted, then use it tomorrow and report back.

    Yeah I own a 16 gb iPhone 6, it's enough storage for me but my next purchase I'll be getting a 64 gb, I'd like to know that I'll have the extra space!
