    I've never experienced such amazing battery usage on any mobile device. (Coming from a iPhone 6)

    This is insane!

    Plus battery is great. Exactly what I need from a mobile device.

    Coming from a note 4... 6s+ is not as good out of the box. I shut off half the crap in icloud and they seem about even now

    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.

    I agree. Battery life with my 6 was OK but not spectacular. Compared to that, my 6s Plus is amazing. I'm super happy with it.

    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.

    How long does your generally last? Mines 1.5 days or so.

    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

    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.

    I had a 5s. With the 6s+ it feels like I died and went to Battery Depot Heaven :)

    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.

    It's so good, I'm not even sure when I charge it. Like it's _dangerously_ good because 50% charge is a day, or days.

    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. ;)

    I remember being so impressed with the battery life on my 6 Plus, I was worried it would become sentient and start trying to hunt down John Connor.
