    I rarely dip under 50%. And this is with nearly 7 hours of usage.

    How does it compare to the S8+?
    If it helps my note 8 gets on avg 9 hours SOT with 14 hours usage so I'd say the 8+ is about the same. My dad's 8+ is draining like hot booty.

    My 8+ is getting tremendous battery life. I have a screen shot posted a few above this. I never dip under 50% after a full day with good usage time during that time.

    My dad's 8+ was super glitchy setting up too so it might just be the firmware

    Maybe. Or an app issue eating the battery away. I average about 6.5 to 7 hours of usage a day on my phone. Standby around 17 hours. On my 7 plus, I’d be at 20% at end of the day. My 8 plus I’m usually mid to upper 50’s in battery. I’ve once only dipped under 50% and I’ve had this phone 10 days now.

    Well that’s highly unlikely then. Lol. Maybe just a restore is needed.

    Battery life is phenomenal.
    Spent all day yesterday at the sheepdog nationals finals in Belle Grove VA. Full charge at 7 am when I left the car. Taking several videos, texting, and posting results to FB in dodgy areas in terms of signal and yet got back in the car at 6:30 with 38% left.
    VERY impressed with the battery life of this phone.

    I've drank the Kool aid and got myself one...
    It's comparable to the S8+ at the moment

    OK I'm new here and just baffled. I've been on Android from day 1 and slowly hated it especially now with my LG V10. According to Verizon my battery and phone is OK. I've even ran in safe mode and got replacement phone.

    My usage entails
    Phone idle 11 hrs
    Screen on 35min

    My battery is 40% 😩😡

    No apps running and killing battery, it's just that bad. I'm switching from this to iPhone 8 plus as soon as this is paid off hopefully around xmas. Can't wait after hearing these results.

    I was literally on my phone for 8+ hours LOL


    Back on topic, I reflashed iOS 11 on my dad's 8+ and he's down 9% but he has nothing on his phone but audible so it's good for him

    Sounds like apps were actually running, apps will run in the background hidden but 60% in 11 hours isn't bad though. Remember SOT is NOT comparable to usage from iPhone.

    Yup. For instance my iPhone 8+ says usage is over 13 hours today. But I'd say probably only 2-3 hours on screen time. Usage includes streaming music and stuff too.

    Not even using the phone but basically 30 mins and phone at 40% is crap. The standby or idle time is like 5 days for this phone . My phone sits in my pocket for the most of the day

    I don't believe that claim, most phones (excluding my note 5, I was able to get it 6 days of standby with 60% left) last 1-2 days on standby/idle. I don't think your battery life is that bad but if you do then get rid of it asap.

    Yeah mine says usage of battery is 13 hrs but the screen time on is 44 mins now with 31% battery usage. No apps using battery dramatically

    Seeing the battery usage posted in this thread i see ppl with 4 hrs usage and 9 hrs of standby with 92% battery. Or 7 hrs usage and 50% battery. I am lucky if I get to use my phone for over a hour before it's dead

    For those with bad battery life, are you on spotty network?
    Also if you haven’t done it yet, turn off WiFi assist.

    That's the least of their worries, iOS 11 as a whole is hot booty. That's what people's battery life suck with the 8/8+

    I am absolutely stunned by the battery. Had a Note 8 for two weeks and loved it besides the battery which was pretty crap for me. My iPhone 8+ is incredible - so much better than the Note 8 and my old iPhone 7+. Did not think that it should be this amazing
