    Got a friend who's a real power user and is thinking about the 6 plus as I've told him my note 4 battery life has been dissapointing on android 5.0

    He only wants the bigger version.

    I get between 9 and 10 hours of usage time. That's mainly web browsing over WiFi, a couple of short phonecalls, several SMS and the odd Whatsapp convo. The 6+ has the longest lasting battery of any phone I've used but it isn't absolutely knockout. It will definitely see you through the day on one charge though, which can't be said for most phones if you're a heavy user.

    No homescreen widgets but plenty of apps allow Notification Centre widgets. You pull down the NC and there they are.

    My 6 Plus battery life is awesome.
    I can get away with charging it every other day with normal use.

    What's 'normal use'? Normal use for me results in having to charge my 6+ every single evening.

    I hear you, normal use varies by individual.
    I'd say some calling through the day, an hour or more of social messaging, about an hour of youtube, and plenty of safari browsing in between.

    terrible. i would say 4-6 hours nowadays. used to get solid 6-8 hours of super heavy usage (max bright and watching videos etc), but only get 4-6 hours now of mixed usage (calls, web browsing, 50% bightness). i have apple watch connected tho. i think it had an adverse effect.

    my battery still says it has 2800mah tho

    I doubt the watch is a major contributor to your battery use.

    You are correct - I don't have an Apple watch but I have an iPad so I use that a lot instead of my iPhone AND I'm at home a lot of the time (I don't work) so my first port of call is often my iPad

    it really ranges and depends on what kind of apps you're using. I average 6-10 hours. 6 if I use intense apps like youtube, safari with flash, thinkorswim trading platform, gps intensive apps. 10 if its just email, msging and casual browsing.

    I never really turn it off, up at 5:30 every working day. Connected to my Apple Watch permanantly also, so using bluetooth. Additionally I usually have it connected to my PowerBeats yet I probably plug it in at 11:30 in the evening with 40% at the very lowest. Usually I would say high 50s and low 60s.
