    Just curious as to what everyone was getting for battery life. I know that since it’s a new phone people tend to be on their phones more.

    After 4.5 hours of use today I am at 68%.

    I’ve been on my phone off and on for the last 12 hours and I still have 75% battery left. Yesterday was my first full day with the new phone and I think it was down to about 50% at the end of the day.

    I'll keep track of it tomorrow -- I've used it a bunch today and had to charge after some iCloud issues. Yours seems good though, I think!

    First day yesterday was close to 20 hours and I still had 51% battery left last night when I went to bed. I have a series 0 Apple Watch and have never gotten better battery life than with my iPhone X. Last night it was still at 65% after almost 15 hours.

    I don’t have any exact answers, but at least 2x as good as my 7 Plus was getting.

    I’ll be able to give a better indication tomorrow. Today, I’ve had it plugged-in in my car for CarPlay purposes.

    My 4.5 hours at 68% is on screen time. My phone has been off the charger for about 11 hours and I was streaming music for about 3 hours.

    It’s decent.
    I feel like the 8 Plus battery life is still better.

    I'd put it at least on par with my 7+ after a year of use on it if not as good as when it was new. Other than the bit of drain messing with it on Friday (setting up etc) I charged it to full then didn't plug it in again until tonight at 20% and that's been a mix of playing with it and normal use about 50/50 split. So yes, I had it unplugged for about 40-42 hours straight.

    Yesterday was my 1st full day at work with X. From 930-430 with moderate to heavy use I was at 54%. From 430-930 when I got home I was using it light to moderately and was at 27%. I didn’t charge all day and was off WiFi. Solid battery life but I would feel less anxious if I had an Apple Smart Battery Case for it

    My battery drain is huge. I was using a beta since day 1 on my 7 plus. Had crappy battery.

    Now on my IPhone X I get terrible battery life compared to you guys.

    I’m at 12% with moderate use.

    Any suggestions? No background app refresh is on. I have two push emails. It says highest use is Facebook and safari.

    Also I use the mophie wireless charger, could that be it? X battery life-8ede1192-7d54-4cdd-b10d-567fb067005a.pngClick image for larger version.

    Same here.
    Knowing that my iPhone can last more than one day with heavy use is nice.
    Maybe next year Apple will release one.

    Same standby and usage time? Is the phone being kept awake by some app running in the background? Try switching off Background app refresh for better stand by.

    I’m not really sure I haven’t really set this phone up like I had my 7 plus. I am also running the developers beta.

    Facebook is a major battery drain. I don't use FB very often, but when I do I use it through Safari instead of the app. I refuse to download that awful app.

    I don't see that as bad battery life anyway. Almost 11 hrs standby with almost 7 hours usage doesn't sound bad to me.
