    You can always take it to the Apple store and they can run a diagnostic on it. You can make an appointment online and it will offer to send a diagnostic test to the phone so that the store will have the results when you get there.

    I have excellent reception on T-Mobile everywhere I go here in Denver/Broomfield Colorado.
    I will definitely have to do that. Maybe they can give me some clarity. Thanks for your help.

    Signal reception is very important with battery life. So is brightness. My Verizon signal is not that great. 2 or 3 dots most of the time. I keep brightness at about 30%. I don't use auto brightness. My best runs about 12 hours usage. I'm a heavy user. I seem to do better on WiFi. Cellular seems to eat more, especially when using the camera.

    So...help me out here, is the TSMC chip (which I have) in the 6s...supposed to give me better reception/battery-life? Should I feel "lucky"?

    That's what many tech writers thought at first. Got everyone stirred up. It doesn't appear to make any difference.

    And last, here is the battery stats for my 6S+. All of these were taken off the charger last on Saturday afternoon.

    I have the Samsung chip in mine and to tell the truth it's no big deal. The 6s I have gets me through the day just like the 6, 5 4 and 3GS I had before itI still have 10-30% every night when I go to bed. Next year I will get the 7 and as long as it gets me through the day Apple won't hear a word out of me.

    I was just going to comment on how ridiculous I thought all this "chipgate" deal was.

    Haters gonna hate, I guess.

    I don't prefer it. I never even think about it. All those unfactual articles written early on really got some folks upset over nothing. LOL You don't hear much about it now, do you? Those writers have shut up after realizing the truth. There's not a dimes difference in the chips. If you think so, prove It!
    For me it's still the point that Apple said there is a 2-3% difference in an official statement yet we both would pay the same price, not a 2-3% discount on the lesser model

    That's not enough of a difference to matter. And it varies from phone to phone. They're not all the same. I see both chips get good battery life and bad. It's a non issue.

    2-3% would be within the margin of error...

    You might never want to buy an iPhone again. As far as I know, iPhones have always contained parts made from Samsung and will continue to do so in future iPhones. They use more parts other then the chip that this thread is talking about.

    Put your iPhone in the microwave and set it for 30 seconds. If it charges 10% it is a Samsung chip if it charges anything more than 10% it is tsmc......

    Lol. But it's the chip that was of concern to me. And I def dont need a negative difference in battery life. That's something that actually makes a difference. The other stuff is negligible.

    The question is how much difference. I can't tell a difference.

    I for one cannot afford to lose even one percent battery life than necessary. So yeah that matters to me. If there is even a question of the battery life in one chip vs the other (which it has been established there was), then I will stick with the Apple chip and call it a day.
