    Have you checked your background usage by clicking the clock icon under the battery usage tab? Maybe you've got an app doing too much in the background.

    iPhone X has a bigger battery than 8 plus, so it should last longer than or at least same as 8 plus given it’s larger display. So far I feel like it’s lasting about the same as the plus, but I’ve been using it all lot too. I wanna give it a good 2 weeks before I judge the battery life. And I’m sure future optimization via software updates will make it better, I feel like this phone is still in initial testing phase.

    Pretty much the same amount of use today currently at 48%

    Mine's down to 21% after 14 hours of use (off the charger at 6am and it's 8pm now). I wasn't hard core with it but I did use it a bunch to make some calls, send some texts, play a bit of Madden Mobile, check the social feeds. I'm happy! Just reset settings so can't post a screenshot of the stats though.
    Tomorrow will be a test as I'll tend to stream podcast in the car for the 1 hour each way commute. We'll see

    Battery life has been FANtastic in the few days I’ve been using the X.

    The battery life is okay, not great. Initially it seemed better but it has since settled into an "okay but not great" state. The OLED screen sucks huge amounts of power because everything in iOS is so white/light colored. In general I never find battery life to be that great on devices using OLED screens. I had the same complaint about my S8+ and my S7 Edge, and so on.

    For me, improved battery life may be the feature I appreciate most about the phone. I just can't believe how good it is. My phone gets charged overnight plus 2 20-minute commute times every day. When I plugged in last night I was at 72%.

    A little off topic but has anyone purchased the fast charger? and if so, how much faster is it then the charger apple gives out of the box? It actually disgusts me that they did not include the fast charger! There is no reasoning behind that other then greed

    It's something like a $70 setup to get it so that's probably why it's not included in the box vs the probably $10 setup they did put in. I do plan to probably eventually buy a fast charge setup but for now I'm actually looking more towards wireless especially now that the "fast" wireless charge is out. Usually I just use a 12W iPad charger though and it's been fast enough when I get home from work. I usually switch to using my iPad at that point anyway especially now that I can send not only iMessage but SMS as well from it while the phone is home with it.

    I really think that my battery life is probably similar to what I was getting on my 7+ after a year of use, if not a little better. I really have no complaints and I'm sure anyone coming from a non-plus model is probably actually really happy with it in most cases. I'll have to ask my wife what she's noticed there since she always used the regular 4.7" phones.

    That’s what I appreciate too, it’s definitely better than the 4.7” iPhone models and very comparable to the Plus variants.

    I bought the lightning to USB C cable. That's all I needed b/c I have a MBP power brick to use it with. The initial charging time is super fast if the battery is low, but it slows down as battery gets charged. For example, if my phone is at 20% when I plug it in it charges super fast in the beginning, but once it gets closer to 100% the charging slows down.

    Tell me about it. I charged mine for the first time and it went from 7% to 20 % in about 10 minutes i think. I was like hmmm this aint slow. Then 2 and a half hours later i was in disbelief that it still was not fully charged lol It was on like 98% and took another 20 minutes just to reach 100 lol

    I just saw an article somewhere the other day that compared all the charging options from the basic 5w block, the wireless options, all the way to the fast charge setups and yeah after 2 hours the fast charge setup was just barely more than using a 12w iPad block and lightning cable. Think I'm going to stick with that setup since we already have two of those, and use a 7.5w wireless for when I just want to toss it down and not deal with cables. Fast charge is great if you need to get some charge on a nearly dead phone quick but full charging just doesn't seem worth the $$$.

    Agree. As the phone fast charges, It slowly gets hotter and hotter so they pretty much slow things down to prevent over heating!

    Which I find odd as well because before I got a 6s+ a couple years ago I had the 2014 Moto X with a Motorola Quickcharge 2.0 charger and that could charge the phone from near dead in an hour with no issues and about 50% in 20 minutes or so.

    edit: that was a 2300mah battery too so it's not like the battery was small.

    Yeah but that's what I'm saying. They have a "fast charge" setup with the 29w brick and usb-c to lightning cable but it still takes almost 2 hours for a full charge, though you do get about 50% in 30 minutes. However the 12w iPad charger will do 40% in the same time and I already own that..........

    found the article I was talking about.......

    Oops looks like I was wrong and confused the time with some other posts I was reading here. The timeframe was 60 minutes, but I'd guess they both take similar time for a full charge between the 12w and the fast charge USB-C setup based on being nearly the same after 60 minutes.

    I generally found myself finishing the day with 20-30% battery life with the standard iPhone 7. I never go below 50% on my X and that’s with all of the same settings. So I’m extremely happy.

    Can anyone explain the difference between battery 'usage' on ios and screen on time on android? I thought they were the same thing but today my iphone x said my usage was almost 3 hours and i only lost like 14/15% so that cant be right lol
