    I love the battery life on the 6s. It's amazing to me how well Apple is able to utilize a battery that small for as long as it does.

    Without mid-day charging, I'm usually dead by dinner time or shortly after that.

    As much as I am impressed with what they get out of the battery in the 6s, I picked up the Smart Battery Case. Now I give battery life no thought whatsoever. I'm off charger for about 18 hours and my phone's battery is at about 80% at bedtime.

    Well, I opted to buy an iPhone 6S and have my iPhone 6 Plus as a backup. I will probably pick it up tomorrow at a nearby Verizon store and then set it up as new. I don't expect the battery life to be as great as my current iPhone 6 Plus, but I don't expect it to be abysmal either. I've always gotten great battery life with my previous iPhones and I expect to get the same with the iPhone 6S. We'll see...

    I currently have a 6+ and a 6S+. I ordered a 6S and I will have it in the morning. I'm anxious to see how the battery will be.

    I also have an old 5S which still works. I wanted to get another phone to use at my job just bigger then the 5S and smaller then the 6+/S+.

    What's your screen brightness set at? I have needed my brightness to set above halfway and on my iPhone, I have it set well below halfway. You can probably squeeze out an extra hour or so by adjusting the brightness.

    I got my 6S delivered late last night so I haven't had much chance to see how the battery will do yet. Today will be my first full day and I have to work a very short Christmas Eve shift tonight.

    I do have a 6+ and a 6S+ and I know the battery life will not be the same.

    Switching from a 3 year old Droid, the difference has been night and day. My 6s lasts twice as long and charges in half the time. I can get away with charging every 2 days, maybe 3 with light use. Even battery-eating navigation apps don't seem to phase it.

    Try turning that off for a day or two and set the brightness below halfway and see what you get.

    I picked up my iPhone 6S last night but began setting it up this morning. I've only been using it for a few hours, and although the battery life seems pretty good for day one usage, I can tell that it won't match that of my iPhone 6 Plus. I'll give it a few days to settle in.

    Standby time seems pretty amazing so far in my first day of usage. I took my phone off the charger at about 2PM Thursday. I went to work at five. Got home at 8 and fell asleep. I have a little usage in all that time and now it's 6AM with 90%. I'll finally actually be able to use the phone today.

    15 hrs, 55 minutes standby, 1 hr, 34 minutes usage.

    I am loving my 6S. I took it off the charger on Christmas Eve at about 2PM and I am still on that same charge. It has the TSMC chip if that matters.

    Not to brag about my 6S battery but check this out. I last put my 6S on the charger Saturday and took it off at about 2PM. My 6S is STILL on that same charge. This phone does have the TSMC chip in it. Notic that it does not say that the phone has been plugged in since last charge at the bottom. I don't play games or anything like that on any of my phones or use it to watch movies or Netflix, never have.

    I no longer have an iPhone 6S, but the battery life of my iPhone 6S Plus is probably the same as with my iPhone 6 Plus (backup device) - Excellent...

    The 6s has been continuing to impress me, so much so that I returned my Smart Battery Case. I simply don't need it. I'm getting between 9 and 9.5 hours usage every day. I have not been able to kill it yet in the course of my waking day.

    I have been greatly surprised by the length of time that I get from the 6S. Having come from a Samsung Galaxy S5 this device is light years ahead in the battery, as well as many other functions.

    I'm pleased with the battery life of the 6S. This is with the Samsung chip on a device that's only 2 days old due to a warranty issue. Didn't put it in low power mode either.

    Normally plug the phone in at night, but this being a Saturday I decided to let it die. Usually have 30 to 40% at night when I plug in. So, yeah, I'm happy with this.

    My first battery charge (1st out of box) lasted 9 hours. After that the average this being 6 hours.

    What settings do you disabled or changed to achieve this duration?

    The only thing I keep off is WiFi. I keep it on LTE every minute of the day. The only other setting I changed is brightness down to a bit below halfway with auto brightness off. Email is on push. I don't watch videos or play any games.
