    I have been using 5s for 2 years now and it took around 100 minutes to charge completely.I recently bought 6s and it takes around 2.5 hours from 0-100.Also i noticed it takes a lot of time between 90%-100%.Is it normal, does it take so long on the newer devices?
    PS-I am using genuine apple charger and wire i received with the phone.

    My iPhone 6 charges in about one hour and 20-30 mins max. But I don't usually let my phone's battery go below 35%.

    2 hours is about right.

    On a normal charge on my 6 w/ 64gb from 0-5 to full charge maybe an hour and that is it.

    If possible, use your iPad charger instead. It shortens charge time by about 25%.

    Maybe it will take much time to charge completely for the first time.
    I never count charging time.

    Bigger battery = Longer charge time. The iPhone 6s can draw 2amp of current so if you buy a 2amp charger it will charge much faster.

    I thought the battery in the 6S was smaller than the 6. I too feel like it takes forever to charge my 6S up.

    You are correct but the OP is comparing his charge time to the iPhone 5s which has a smaller battery than both the 6 and 6s.

    Put your phone in airplane mode and it will charge faster.

    You should try charging a 6(s) Plus. It's painfully slow. It also drains really slow, so I accept the shortcoming. An iPhone with fast charging would be incredible.
