Is 10 hour usage time normal for the plus? I was hoping for a bit more. I'm talking actual usage not standby.
I was getting around 11-12 hours usage with 30 hours standby the first 2 cycles. The last cycle i only got 9 hour usage with 18 hours standby... i didnt change my setup or usage habits. It could be a faulty battery, genius appt on Tuesday.Is 10 hour usage time normal for the plus? I was hoping for a bit more. I'm talking actual usage not standby.
The thing is i had auto brightness on and pretty much every default, out of box settings and i was getting pheonomenal usage. When i noticed less usage on one of the cycles i did turn off a few things afterwards to see if the usage increased (background app refresh OFF, most system services OFF, auto brightness OFF, and since TMobile offers WiFi Calling i decided to put my phone on Airplane Mode with WiFi ON to save that extra battery) and that amazing battery life i got on the first couple cycles is nowhere near good. Looking like how my fresh, new 5 battery used to get.same here i seemed to get best usage after first charge but not as good since, do you all have auto brightness on, I've had mine on full brightness as love bright screens but presume this will take massive hit on battery???
Some people are expecting significantly increased screen on time, which just isn't happening. It's got only about 15% more screen on time (wifi/lte browsing) than the iPhone 6, which is itself mostly on par with the 5S.I'm only on my second cycle right now. Neither of the cycles were amazing as reviews made them out to be.
You're right. I find that cell signal strength has a humongous impact on battery life. A weak cell signal will just kill the battery.10 hours doing what?
At what screen brightness?
Bluetooth? Wifi? What is your cell signal strength?
You realize how making these comparisons is a bit on the pointless side without any controlled testing.
