    I have just hit 20% and I figured I'd show today's usage.

    I unfortunately can't test the battery today....with this nor'easter coming through today and later possibly the effects from Joaquin, I'm keeping all my phones plugged in just in case we have outages. I learned during the summer derecho of '12 that keeping the phones charges was a very very very good idea!!!!
    Be safe Lil🏾

    Good Lord for the people with 8+ hours, what brightness setting is that lol. I'm at 75% brightness and will be lucky to even hit pass 8hours of usage.

    My 6S+ brightness was pretty high when I first started using the phone (whatever the default was). I was still getting more battery than my 6+ with the brightness on low. In fact, I was saying "dang this 6S+ looks so much better than my 6+" to only find out most of it had to do with the brightness.

    I actually take my phone off the charge before I go to bed. I took it off around 1130/12 yesterday and had 40% battery around 815pm when I was doing closing duties at work. This thing is beast! At least for now.

    Oh if the brightness were that high it would hurt.
    Mine is low because sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and I start thinking about ports and firewalls and I can't turn my brain off so I start reading the forums. If the brightness is too high it hurts.

    Thank you! I actually didn't plug in like I was planning. Just the Lumia, the Note 4, and the Quasimodo. It's not as bad here as they'd said. But I'm way away from the coast. I've got friends in New Kent, in the MD Eastern Shore, and they've been getting battered.

    It's raining steadily here. But she's got to deal with the rain, wind, and onshore flooding. During Sandy she had a tree smash the corner of her house. She lives in an old farmhouse from the 1850s. Expensive to repair to keep the look of the place but the insurance covered. Now she's got a new bathroom upstairs!!!!

    Then I'll keep her in my thoughts. Getting a new roof or maybe some new furniture is one thing. Getting a whole new house, that's not fun. Especially if you're displaced temporarily after losing everything you love. I only ever experienced a small part of Charlie when I lived in Florida a few years back. It wasn't bad, just a little wind damage on singles.

    So how's that battery? I'm running a Geekbench 3 battery test on my 6s. Over at MR, they're finding people with TSMC chips are getting better battery life than the ones with Samsung chips. ^.^

    I've got the TSMC chip. Phone runs smooth like butter. Glad I didn't exchange it after all. That freezing was probably just syncing in the background. After about 8 hours or so, the phone was doing great.

    How are getting eight hours of usage with no screen time for those apps? Are there a grip of apps that aren't shown?

    My 6s battery lasts just a little under my 6plus, very close but does fall behind. I also noticed that I receive a weaker signal reading on my 6s plus that may have something to do with it.
    I have noticed weaker signal a lot with my 6S Plus well at least with the reading on the phone. In some cases old phone got full bars where I get one now. Battery life is less by at least 20%.

    There's no way you can know that about that battery yet - you will have to give it a few weeks. Apart from the initial spotlight indexing which will use battery, you will also be using the phone a lot more given that it's new.

    I setup 6s+ phone as new with no restore of any backups. Battery life was not nearly as good as 6+. Waited a week. It didn't improve. I had to charge late afternoon every day. I did all of the tips to maximize battery.

    Backed up, restored as new. Restored backup. Second day and battery life seems as good as 6+.

    Some apps didn't restore so had to simply reinstall. All app data was retained in backup. Small inconvenience to get back great battery life.

    Better than my 6 Plus but I also switched carriers and get a much better signal than I used to. I'm sure that plays a part.
