Welcome to the all-new iMore Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
It's because you restored. Most times that has a productive affect on battery life.
I think he's implying you wiped your phone, installed the OS cleanly, then restored your settings and apps. If so, then an "unproductive" effect would be to do an OTA update from 9.x to 10 without a wipe.didn't know that. what procedure should I follow to not have a productive affect on battery life? Right now, I only have my phone backed up on itunes locally on my computer.
Yeah... today I did well; took an hour before I got down to 99% -- at 98% about 3 hours later (I've barely used the phone... couple of texts, deleted an email, one quick 2 minute phone call).That's still not too bad... of course, I came from the Nexus 5 (not 5x), which had terrible battery life, so on the 6s I feel like it'll never run down!Yup -- my first day after install I still expected everything to be screwy (it kinda was)... and forget install day!
My battery life has been about the same if not slightly better

In theory, but not always in practice, an update can have detrimental effects on the device because of legacy components that stay in place.
My main reasons for doing a wipe/install/restore were:
1. I had the time.
2. Were I to run into issues later, I could dismiss a number of concerns because nothing had been updated/upgraded.
3. Updates typically take up more storage space than clean installs.
4. After 15 years managing Windows, macOS, Solaris, Red Hat, Android, and yes, iOS, I found that a full wipe leaves the system more stable, thus avoiding potential issues down the road.
Are you on T-Mobile? They had an issue where it would drop LTE and not get it back, although Carrier version 25.2 was supposed to take care of it (did not happen on my 6s, nor on my mom's 5s -- both on T-Mo).Thanks for clearing that up. I figured that's what the poster was referring to. I wiped my phone, installed 10.0.1 and restored my phone Sunday. It seems to be stable now, but I did have LTE shut off for a few hours yesterday. It may have been a carrier thing.
