    Lol...what a topic. So here's the thing: I have stayed away from iOS for years due to bad battery life on previous versions of the iPhone. I am so impressed with the 6 right now. I came off charger last evening and have been connected to wifi the entire time, lightly surfed the net, spent over an hour on the phone in 3 separate work related phone calls, responded to emails and texts and still have 71 % left. It says 2hrs and 47 minutes of actual usage and 20 hours and 9 minutes of standby time. For the same usage I had recharged my 4s 3 times in the same day while camping during the long weekend. I charged the 5s twice in the same time period as my usage is standard daily for what I use it for. Mind Blown

    They have very decent battery life. I have the 6 and am a fairly heavy user of my phone. I can get a solid 16-20 hours out of my 6. I am moving to the Plus for my next phone and look forward to seeing how a Plus will do.

    I'm pretty happy with my 6s+. It reserves power when idle very well. My Note 3 could easily burn through its entire charge before the end of my work night. I did eventually get some better battery management on it and manage to reserve the battery for my whole shift but then I was throttling the CPU and stuff. With my 6s+ I can play a game on my lunch break, use the phone throughout the night at work, and still have 55-60% charge in the morning. All without having to mess with settings or reduce options.

    my office mate has a Plus and for the first time dare I say that the it may be too big for my liking? I was into the galaxy note series at one point but kept dropping my phone. Due to already having an ipad mini 3 and a surface 3....for my own personal gadget nerd reasons, I can only justify having either by having a phone that isn't quite in the phablet status lol.....I'm a quirky kind of gal :P

    See...that's why I am always torn. It always comes down to battery life with me. The Plus has double the battery size.....but I fear I would drop it and obliterate the screen like I did with my Huawei Mate 2.....I think I sobbed on that one because I had loved that phone. I'm already accident prone.........good thing I'm an RN...I can bandage myself lol

    Age is getting the better of my eyes. Hence the Plus for next phone.

    My eyes are in bad shape. I have to put in prescription drops every day. The 6s Plus has been great for my eyes. The battery did great before I wore it down some. I'm a very heavy user from 5:00 am to midnight. I get about 8 hours usage per charge. I was getting 12 hours usage.
