    6s plus I'm assuming?

    Normally a die shrink = better power efficiency and more speed. Samsung = 14 nm and TSMC = 16 nm, so you would think it would be the other way, that the Samsung would be the one you want. Very strange.

    I have the Samsung chip. This is the first iPhone I've ever had coming from 5 years on Android. One thing I love is that this phone doesn't heat up while I'm using it. The only exception is using GPS for navigation, and even then it doesn't get nearly as warm as my Android phones. I get outstanding battery life. I can barely run it down past 40% even on days where I charged it the night before. No complaints here.

    TSMC here on both phones, 6S+ 128GB (grey/rose). Most 128GB 6s+ phones are TSMC according to what's being reported out there.
    I don't think it warrants any concern AT ALL. Now if one or the other had a hardware bug rendering it physically inferior that would be another thing altogether. I would not fret it UNLESS somehow it's determined that one is demonstrably inferior to the other. So in the meantime just use your phone and worry about other things that matter.

    Like jailbreak!

    Makes sense. If there is only a 2-3% difference then you should be getting great battery life +/- 2-3%.

    I will say that I've noticed that my 6s with TSMC chip is cooler than the one I returned with the Samsung chip. I haven't had it long enough to comment on battery life under normal use but it is cooler.

    It means that your chip is running more efficient = longer battery life.

    I'm a few years on Android too after being an original iPhone user up through the 4.

    I'm really surprised how easy the switch has been, really loving the 6S Plus. Battery life is mind blowing coming from a Nexus 6 and Note 5. So many things I'm finding I really like in this first week (damn I love TweetBot)...thought the switch might be harder, but I can't complain..

    128GB with a TSMC btw

    Nah.....I'm on my phone CONSTANTLY. and I'm consistently getting over 24 hrs on a full charge with around 9-14 hrs use. Samsung chip.

    The variance in my case has to do with signal strength. When I've got good signal or WiFi I'm in the 14 hr range. When I'm out and about in the back of beyond it's in the 9 hr range.

    Oh and I've got the Samsung chip.

    I was just teasing the guy. Actually, according to the reviewers who tested both phones, you can't really tell the difference between the two if both phones are not being used under heavy processor load. Meaning, playing intensive graphical games for a long period of time or benchmarking it which in real world, most people doesn't do. The difference is about 16 to 20% on the battery and on the temp is about 5 degrees cooler than Samsung. On a normal usage, only about 2-3% difference. So, in reality, you can't really tell difference.

    Oh no it's OK. That is really my point. I'm getting amazing battery life with the "bad" chip.

    6S Plus with TSMC... battery life is OK (I play too much SimCity to get decent batter life lol). This is the A1687 model running on AT&T. I may end up switching it for an A1634.... my borderline OCD'ness won't let me not have have band 30 lol. So it's a gamble as I may end up with a Sammy chip in that one. But it shouldn't be a problem.

    Forced? Hmm. There little to no difference in the chip other then size and process. Battery life is the exact same on my phone now and as my 6 plus. Tomorrow will be the real test but I've been on it for 2?hours and at 80% battery. That's about correct. And that without calibrating the screen to my brightness levels I like. Phones fast and I don't play games, that's what my pc is for.
