    What about battery life of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6? How long does it last especially when using 3G?

    There's no specific time because it depends on your usage as well as your signal strength. All I can tell you is that when I go to bed, I am typically hovering around the 50% mark on my iPhone 6 Plus, depending on that day's usage.

    Mine gets me through a full day, I've never had it die on me yet. I split usage between that and my Air 2, so my iPhone is almost always above 50% on any given day.

    I use my iphone 6 continously for 5 hours on wifi and my battery still remain 20-25% from full charge. But if i use 3g then battery drains very fast like within 2 hours it comes down to approx 30-40% from full charge on continous use.

    Hey guys, I am considering switching my iPhone 6 plus to iPhone 6 but I am worried about battery life. I am heavy smartphone user and by the end of day my iPhone 6 plus has 20% battery left over. Is the battery worst than iPhone 6 plus?

    I tend to think the battery life of the regular 6 is acceptable but no, you are not going to experience battery life similar to your 6 plus. Nor should you expect to given the disparity in battery capacity.

    They're definitely getting better and the screen on the latest 2 are huge in comparison. Unless you're hammering it it will get you through the day easily

    The 6+ users can regularly hit 1.5-2 days in a charge. With my usage patterns on my 6, I can usually make it through a day and a half (medium usage) but I always charge it at the end of every day. I usually don't game on my phone, but I do use news and forums apps, along with browsing the web and watching YouTube videos for roughly 2-2.5 hrs per day. I end the day with about 55-60% on average.

    Oddly enough I find battery on my iPhone 6 to be better than my previous iPhone 6 Plus. With the bigger battery in the Plus, I found that I quickly burned through it much faster than my 6. With that said, I still do tote around a battery pack with me and I am contemplating the Lifeproof Fre Power case. My job, although awesome, leaves me with a lot of down time in between calls (Medic), so my usage is probably much higher than the average person. I pull my iPhone off the charger at 4 am and it lasts me up until about 2 pm before I hit the 10 percent message.

    I have a 6+. I have email set to fetch every 15 mins for my work exchange and manual for my personal.

    I don't use notifications at all.

    I leave the parallax on.

    I have brightness up 80%

    I'm on my phone significantly from 7a - 10p.

    By 10p my phone is at 23%.

    I generally have a 10% drop in battery for each 1 hour of usage (not standby) on my iPhone 6. This is in good LTE and wifi coverage. I've found that a weak signal is the biggest battery drainer.

    As for me, it could last for about 10 hrs. (In order to prolong the batter life, I have turn off wifi, location service and other notifications).

    Sometimes it depends on the apps you use. Some apps are battery-savers but some are not. My 6 usually remains 20% at the end of the day.

    My battery life is way less since upgrading to IOS 8.4, I always make sure there aren't any apps running and still my battery keeps draining. I have the iPhone 6 64gb. Wasn't having this before upgrading, wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same.
