    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.
    Did you change anything in Privacy Location / System Services? Would you mind to send me a screen shot of this settings?

    Here is the screen cap. I'm not doing anything special at all with this phone. It's basically setup with everything as default as it comes out of the box except with auto brightness off and brightness set as a bit under halfway.

    Thanks a lot.

    Did you turn off Background Activity?

    Do you use Facebook app or access by Safari?

    If an app uses runs in the background, I let it. I also use the FaceBook app, twitter, Tweetbot and Safari. None of these show using more then a few % of the battery.

    I sure am. Last night I went to charge my iPhone 6s before going to bed and it was at 57%. During the day I walked for 106 minutes listening to podcasts on my bluetooth headphones. I also have an apple watch using bluetooth and used the iPhone to send a bunch of messages, check email, play games, did some banking etc. Captain Obvious says: if people are complaining about battery life they must be using their iPhone all the time and people shouldn't be surprised that it they're using up a lot of battery

    I am quite impressed with the 6s' battery life. Cellstandby is also excellent.

    I just came from a nexus 6p (I've had literally every single flagship android for years) and I cannot believe how good the battery life is on my iPhone 6s. I even ordered that smart battery case when I got my phone but I'm going to end up returning it because I just don't need it!

    Can't say I am surprised but reading all the crap about 6s life I thought it would be much worse.

    Turn off:
    - Hand Off and Suggested Apps
    - Fitness Tracking (into Motion & Fitness)
    - System Services (Cell Network Search, Compass Calibration, HomeKit, Location-Based Alerts, Location-Based iAds, Setting Time Zone, Wi-Fi Networking, Motion Calibration & Distance)
    - System Services / Product Improvement (Disabled all)
    - Mail -> Disabled Push

    All those options disabled do not impact my use.

    They don't and shouldn't for anyone leaving them on.

    Being at home I don't use my phone that much. However, comparing my Android battery life to the iPhones battery life.... the iPhone beats the snot outta the S4 by more than 24 hours. Doug has to charge his by the end of the day, and mine is going on 44 hours without a charge. We both use our phones about the same amount of time (he doesn't have an iPhone... yet.) Color me impressed.

    Aye, but it's rooted with a custom rom with overclocked settings, so runs extremely well. I've always rooted my Android phones, even though I consistently get them unlocked from Google. Androids with the right custom rom will generally have a much improved battery life over stock. Most certainly can't beat the battery life on the 6S though!!

    Which battery are you referring to? A 6s battery can't possibly be more than about 4 months old.

    Besides turning things off like push e-mail, location services, not having a bright screen and other battery saving tips which I use, I think all of those things only add to the battery life on my 6s.

    I have several backup batteries for the S4. The last one I purchased from Samsung is roughly 4 months old.
