My 8 plus is my first iPhone. I planned to wait for the X Plus, but i caved. I surprised my wife with an X and an apple watch. It seemed so much better than my S8 plus. I am thrilled with it. I have 2 questions that i cant get a definitive answer on. 1. Why did apple remove our ability to track charge cycles on the phone itself? Coconut battery doesn't help, since i dont own a pc. I read that ios 9 or 10 allowed you to view this important info. Why remove it? Will it return? 2. Does low power mode really make THAT much difference? I am curious for future reference. A co worker keeps it on 24/7. I tried it and seemed to get a bit better battery life, but sending pictures was noticeably slower with low power mode on. Wouldn't that defeat the purpose, since it takes longer and requires more power to send on low power? I keep all background app refresh off and about 40% brightness, so will low power mode even do much? I wont use it daily, but if i ever get down to 30% and won't be home for a while.
