    I always find the "gate" stories comical at best, regardless of which OEM or OS they are about. They are simply clickbait and nothing more, well except AntennaGate, that was an actual issue and really just a design flaw that wasn't accounted for.

    Still who cares who made your processor, battery, or screen. Apple sources so many ten's of millions of components per supplier and they have several things in common. Apple Quality Control, which dictates design, specs, minimum tolerance which is acceptable in any mass produced manufacturing process after all none two mass produced items is 100% identical.

    With each new phone comes a new story about how its slightest imperfection are now tantamount to corporate sloppiness, greed, and overall a big, well you know to the consumer.

    I have had well over 150 mobile devices (cellphones, tablets and smartphones) spanning 20 years from the motorola bag phone to my iphone 6S Plus and ASUS ZenFone 2. Nothing is perfect all have their pluses and minuses and each offers something different. Yet not one has left me stranded, in fear for my life or in such peril that without a 100% perfect device I would be at risk.

    Perhaps if "journalists" were still Journalists intent on a story that told the whole story and wasn't about managed content meant to scare, drive clicks, slight a company things would be different today.

    I got Samsung. I confess myself a little disappointed but I really don't think it's going to be a big deal.

    Ate you having problems? If not, what's to be disappointed about?

    True. But there's the nag there that I might have problems. Unlikely.

    Don't let it get to you too much. I doubt it will make a big difference in real world scenarios. But I get why it nags you.

    My benchmark is similar, but my battery tests are way higher. Was this test run on airplane mode with all apps closed and a reboot?

    Yes I closed all apps restarted and put in airplane mode. I did not however choose the "dim screen" option and left it on full.

    Samsung in 6S and TMSC in 6S+ . I have to say, compared to samsung version - TMSC gives me more battery life and cooler operation in general. As always, Samsung screwing things up for apple..

    How do you get a realistic test result if you skewer it by turning airplane mode on and closing all apps? If I go through the trouble of running this test, I want to know how my battery's performance stacks up, regardless of the actual score.

    Well the 6s+ has a bigger battery, so it might influence its life =P

    Not so on my 6s Plus with Samsung chip. Maybe your just using a lot more than normal. We tend to do that with new phones, OS, etc.

    That's good, considering the standby time. It doesn't show your big battery users. What were they?

    I think Samsung chip is not the culprit here. It's the Facebook App! LOL!

    samsung in 6s and tsmc in 6s plus (seems like a pattern from what I'm seeing). Can't say i notice a difference temp or performance-wise and both have great battery life tho I cannot compare the two for obvious reasons

    Another test was conducted. Even though it showed that TSMC outperformed Samsung but the difference is very minimal.

    Looks like geekbench is overestimating battery life by a much larger margin than the others...
