I've already got 3 days battery life out of beta 2 it's pure awesome!
lol I can tell just because when I was at 100% I used to be down to 90% within 20 minutes. I've only lost 3 percent for about 20 minutes now

Battery is much improved. Appears to be back to 9.2.1/9.3Beta. At 3 hours of usage and 4 hours of standby with 73% remaining. Yesterday with same usage I was at 50%. Maybe lower.

Same exact conditions, locations, usage, etc. as yesterday?

Yes. My usage doesn't vary much.
I ask because for example from day to day my usage vs. battery usage can vary somewhat noticeably at times, even though I might do the same things in basically the same places for similar amounts of times, but if I do more browsing in one room of my house than another one where the signal differs by a dot or two, or similarly at work where signal can differ from one room to another, the same usage can result in different battery usage (even though I'm doing the same things in the same places, as most would call it).

I'm pretty good about having indetical usage day to day. But even if it was slightly different, it wouldn't account for a 23%+ battery life increase. Most of my 3 hours has been screen on Real Racing which is very intensive.

I can push 4 days with beta 2 if I stand in a south west direction with the moon just above my left shoulder.
That's nothing!
I got 10 days with beta 2 by saying "Steve Jobs" three times in front of a mirror at 3am.

Also, a new brand app has appeared on my homescreen.
It's called "iPentagram"

...too soon?

No real meaningful information could be obtained just yet, and at the every least certainly not around the time of thread's creation.

Do you mean those getting 3 - 5 days on a build released yesterday are being sarcastic? Anyhow, not scientific but from my observation today so far, the battery life is basically the same. Music seems to be a bit more frugal as does Safari, but we’re talking maybe 3% better and again this is subjective. iPhone 6S+ 70% Wifi use 30% cell.

That sounds promising. I think I've almost been having a heart-attack switching from the Sony Z3. I would go 8 days without charging... down to 3 days on the SE. An improvement here would be awesome. Thanks

What device is that?
Sorry, forgot to include in original post. Its a 6s. And thats with a battery with 100 cycles on it, so its not longer 'optimum capacity'. Before this update, I was lucky to see 5 hours at 1% remaining. But the stutters I'm getting are pretty awful.

Would you take the stutters and have better battery life or do you prefer smoothness?
