    It's pretty good, but the 8 plus is better if you want insane battery life.

    Now this is truth. Off charger when I got to work at 7:15am. By the time I leave at 4pm there 8 Plus was sometimes 89%. That was playing solitaire a few times during the day and moderate usage.

    I was hoping with the slightly bigger battery in the X it would be better

    I’ve been using my iPhone X a lot since Friday, and battery life is definitely a concern of the past...
    --- Post Merged, Nov 8, 2017 ---
    Off topic. Series 1 Apple Watch I put on 12 hours ago is at 82%.

    I set it up as new when I set the X up as new and saw a great improvement in battery life.

    Interesting, those kind of numbers are only slightly better than what I'm seeing with my iPhone 7 on iOS 11 (which is still slightly worse than what I was seeing with iOS 10).
    --- Post Merged, Nov 8, 2017 ---
    Now these numbers seem to be considerably better.

    I don’t believe @applewatch results without some topping off here and there. That usage is way too much for 48 percent left

    And the other one you quoted is good standby

    I’m sure my device would have good standby too I’ve just been glued to using it :D

    Those usage figures for that same one w 23h24 standby are
    In line with mine tho a bit better (usually had brightness on brighter side) if I left the phone in my pocket for a while

    Oh, I barely use it at work lol. I only heavily used it last night. Though I did charge it for like 30 seconds this afternoon, but I don't think that did anything.

    There's one also mentioned in a post below that seems to have pretty good numbers for usage too:

    As an ex plus user I’m disappointed.

    I have the V30, I easily exceed 10 hours. If I get another iPhone, it'll probably be the 8 Plus. I'm okay with my 7 Plus for now.

    Definitely feels like a stepback from the 7plus on 10.1 for me but

    Guys you gotta realize both the 8 plus and the X have different technologies. Each respective will drain differently. I have the 8 plus too and it’s a monster battery but for what it’s worth, the X can handle it’s own.

    10 hours of on screen usage? That’s pretty solid for v30/android!

    And I’m sure Face ID requires quite some juice for bionic face detection stuffs / Face ID
    --- Post Merged, Nov 8, 2017 ---
    150 nits is roughly 25 percent brightness just FYI

    My display is quite bright at low levels tho

    That coupled w a dark theme if x ever gets a jailnreak for OLED efficiency would DESTROY!!

    I'm an ex 7+ user and I'm blown away by the X's battery. Normally I'm right around 55-60% come 2 pm when I go to lunch, same usage everyday during the work week for me. With the X, I'm regularly at 80-85% come lunch time and that is just astounding and my phone usage habits have not changed one bit either. The battery is leagues better than the 7+ for me at least.

    Yet the plus has a smaller battery and supposedly a less power-efficient and slightly larger display.

    My 8Plus right now is sitting at 76% with 4hr 24minutes of usage and 11hr 29 minutes of standby. I easily get 8-10hours of usage a day, 18+ hours of standby, and that includes at least 1 hour of Pokemon Go.
