It's been pretty good for me coming from a 6. It's not as great as I was expecting (ending the day with 25-0% left), but that might be because I use it more :p

I regularly had to plug my 6 in at least 1 additional time a day after charging overnight.

I get a Note almost every year for my work phone. I have to turn off gps, Bluetooth , and turn down brightness just to get 8 hours a day. If I use google maps then I get 4-5 hours. On my 6s + and my previous 6 Plus. I can go without charging it overnight and make it through the next day.

I came from a note 3. I could barely make it past lunch without needing to grab a charger. With the 6s plus I have made it overnight and all the way to the following evening. Battery is incredible. Very surprised and impressed.

The battery life on this phone is absolutely amazing. I don't have to plug into a charger anymore throughout my day which is great.

I leave my day with more then 20% left and that day starts at 2:45 am every morning and ends around 9:30 in the evening

How long does your generally last? Mines 1.5 days or so.
Yesterday I took the phone off the charger around 2pm and TODAY at around 5pm the battery still had exactly 20% remaining. This is amazing considering how much I use my phone! On a good day with my 6 I'd have to charge twice a day.

You'll get use to this kind of battery pretty quick. It's a nice life lol ;)

Yeah the 6+ and now 6S+ are among the best battery ever experienced in a mobile phone. It pretty much makes worrying about battery life irrelevant. I'm using my phone almost all day and it makes it from 6-7AM to 11PM with around 30% remaining each day off a full charge. When I had the 5S it died around 5PM and the 6 lasted until about 8PM.

I'm going to exchange my 6s for a 6s+ mainly because of battery life. I do like the size of the 6s better though.
I thought I did too and I was afraid the Plus was going to be too big, but after the shock of the initial few days, it now feels perfectly normal, and my 6 feels tiny. I love everything about my Plus and I'm glad I made the leap.

I've had these phones in the past several years:
iPhone 5s
Galaxy s3
Nexus 5
HTC One M8
iPhone 6 Plus
Galaxy s6

And the iPhone 6s Plus BLOWS the others out of the water with its battery. I don't have to charge it until I go to bed.

The Sony phones have the best battery life, no contest and no debate. But of course, a smartphone is more than just battery life. ;)
