    In betas i could only get about 4,5-5 h max.

    Why is that not good for a smaller and older phone like a 5s? It might not be amazing or perhaps even great necessarily (although even that can be debated to some degree), but it's certainly mot "not good".

    Seriously? 6 hours of battery life is really good on a nearly 3 years old 5s.

    6 hours implies you need to charge it twice a day which is average or slightly below average.I consider 8 hour usage as good battery life

    Usage.Its very bad.Here is my latest battery life Image1458900710.705237.jpg


    Note this is without gaming otherwise it can be 4 hours


    This is false.On the contrary I just preordered a iPad Pro

    oh my ... 6 hours of usage, with a rather poor network signal strength, for a 3 years old device is a VERY GOOD battery life :rolleyes:

    indeed :rolleyes:

    6 hours means what ????
    Do you spend more than 6 straight hours using your phone every day ???

    are you able to analyze it ?
    Most of your apps reported LOW SIGNAL.
    You are using your smartphone in a very poor coverage area. you are lucky you are passing the 5 hours mark.


    So you can criticize something else about Apple :D

    The Galaxy S7 Edge and the Xperia Z5 manage 18 hours of usage almost.It really is hilarious you find 6 hours very good when even the Xperia Z3 manages a full day of use

    PS-The 5S is 2.6 years old

    even PhoneArena, well known Samsung's lover, reported a battery life not better than the iPhone 6S+

    Let me know if I can stop here...

    Really, every time you speak about Apple and Samsung, you seem to live in a parallel dimension :confused:

    Lol you do realise those tests are of heavy usage with max brightness enabled?I usually keep my phones at below 50% which would double the battery life given above.Conveniently you forgot to include the battery life of the iPhone 6 and the 5s in this test which last HALF as long as the Galaxy S7 and got a HORRIBLE rating in Phonesrena test

    If don't understand anything about those benchmarks why still try to lecture me :rolleyes: ?

    Do you know what 200 NITS means ? Actually is quite similar to the 50% you are speaking about... :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
    I quoted half a dozen of benchmarks from very popular and serious websites and you replied with "PhoneArena" .... :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    So not SOT that you mentioned. Got it.

    And you did see the part of almost 17 hours of standby in that screenshot (or even more than that in yours)--that means the phone would only need to be charged once during the day, generally at night, which is rather normal.

    If you are going to compare usage with some large phones, then compare the usage to the iPhone 6s Plus (if you actually want a realistic comparison and not just one that randomly throws out talking points without any actual connection to anything that is). But this thread isn't about that anyway.

    All of these benchmarks are using strenous PCMark and webgl tests which are highly demanding on the battery.With a mixture of moderate to high NORMAL usage you can asily double the time on the benchmark
    My usage time obviously is in the ballpark of my SOT as I idle time drain is minimal and I havent listened to music
    I stated the S7 Edge because it has the best battery life out of any smartphone out there

    First: that's simply NOT TRUE. Some tests are just web browsing... Nothing strenuous.
    Second: even if that was true (and it's NOT), that apply to EVERY other device.

    So your beloved S7 isn't so exceptional, and need a monstrous battery to compete with an iPhone.

    my links demonstrated it's not.
    Period.

    It's great that S7 Edge might have great battery life, but what does that have to do with a much smaller and much older iPhone 5s (or even still a smaller and older iPhone 6)? It's like saying that the latest 12 inch tablet has a much better battery life than an older and smaller 5" tablet--who would have ever expected that?

    And all that aside, the standby time shows that the device provided an all day use for someone. So, again, all the things that are being brought up are basically moot.

    Don't you know the last tendency on MR Forums ? Brought up Galaxy S7 Edge in basically every thread ... from the same users. :rolleyes:

    No?

    Unless you're saying the screen is, literally, the only thing thing power. Then I guess you'd be right.
