    I can blow thru an iPhone 7+ battery by the afternoon, I can blow thru an iPhone 7 with Smart Battery case by 5pm and i'm charging the iPhone X right now after it reached 30%.

    Waiting for the iPhone XL with the double thick battery...

    I will post a screen shot in just a few.

    Next time stop and think before you try and call someone a liar.

    Obviously you put in the time and effort to photoshop that. ;)

    There was a question/request in there somewhere (vs. an implication that someone basically lied)?

    You said. "--sorry but no way you are getting 16 hrs! lol." You didn't ask for data. You called me a liar.

    If you log in to your iCloud after setting the phone as new, you should get all your iCloud related info accessible. Again, it depends on if you have iCloud back-ups.

    As I said, any iPhone has incredible standby time. That doesn't mean anything if you actually pick the device up to send an email and it drops 5% LOLOL

    Oh yes I have iCloud and when I first setup the phone in the Apple store I chose to have it setup from iCloud backup. So that’s not the same as setting it up as new and then logging in to iCloud and then having your information?

    Do not choose to setup from iCloud backup if you want a "new" phone. I meant, once your new phone is setup, sign in to your iCloud and from there you can access your other iCloud stuff.

    He's doing 16 hours of audio playback not actual use.

    Show the top part of the apps though. 16 hours of audio playback not actual use.

    I still don't understand your logic of use. I'm speaking for others here who are confused by you.

    Also, you don't have the X...buy it before you chime in here.

    I had it, and returned it because it was dead half way through the day with less use than my Plus. I don't understand your logic of use. Is use sitting on a desk, never turning on the screen and playing music? If that's the case my Plus will last 2 weeks.

    Read my post again. It was mixed use. SiriusXM, surfing web, app updates, texts, phone call, and minimal use of some other apps. To state I only used audio is inaccurate.

    So 1 hour of actually using the phone and 15 hours of music playback. Oh boy.

    Guaranteed that some music playback app is at the top of the list using all the battery.

    Then do not try to prove everyone else's X is defective like the one you had. My logic of use is in line with what the iPhone statistics are showing me so bug off and stop convincing us that your logic of use is the standard!

    Are you being a pest on purpose? Once again, it was more than an hour. If you want to keep suggesting I am lying, I am not wasting my time with you.

    I wasn’t being deceptive. I spoke the truth.

    Man, let's stop wasting our effort on this guy. He is clearly set to conclude the iPhone X's battery is not any better.

    So you're getting double the time than Apple quotes the phone to get? Sure thing.
    --- Post Merged, Nov 9, 2017 ---
    You're right, everyone gets double the usage time than what Apple quotes the phone can do! /s

    So what if he's getting double or triple? He is stating what he is experiencing, leave it at that!!!

    What's your problem dude?

    Cause it's not actual use, it's audio playback. A different stat which Apple claims the phone will do 60+ hours of.

    I didn't say anything about double. Of that 16 plus hours, half was Sirius XM, the other was about 6 hours of web surfing, some texting, a phone call, and app updates.

    These people tested their battery in heavy, real world usage, and got just over 12 hrs. My usage was not as heavy and I was able to do more.

    I am done wasting my time with you.
