My 6 Plus battery has been nothing short of horrible since its second charge. I've noticed that the battery percentage drops by 2% at a time instead of 1% sometimes but not always. I'm thinking there has to be some sort of defect with my battery. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Mines the complete opposite - outstanding battery life

Taking my phone off the charger at 100% it takes forever to even get to 99%

Call Applecare and get a remote diagnostic done - thats the only way Apple will replace your device for a faulty battery

Mine does that too. I have good battery life - usually 7-8 hours of usage, but it does randomly drop 2% instead of 1% at a time. It does take forever to go from 100 to 99 though.

I have called AppleCare, and they're currently investigating and said they're probably going to issue a replacement. I'm just trying to see if there's anything I can do on my end to improve the battery, and it's very frustrating to see no results.

Same experience with mine. Also, 1% lasts so long it's comical.

my battery on the 6 does this aswell usually around the 30 40 50 percent marks
also on wifi and everything else turned of it seems to drop percentage like every 3 to 4 minutes using safari with auto brightness on. gaming is even worse i played dead trigger 2 for approx 15mins and it drained 7 percent i dont think this can be right
