    Sometimes the battery on my 6+ drop 2% instead of 1%. Like now where my battery went from 16% to 14% while I where using safari. Is this normal? Is it the same behavior on your 6/6+?

    I tried a suggestion from somebody to turn off battery percentage and go on with life... I did, it felt liberating. But, it's back on currently. I'm strange.

    Turn the percentage indicator off and just enjoy your device. The numbers you are seeing are just a rough estimate anyway. When the battery icon turns red, plug it in. ;)

    Doesn't matter, when that happens the amount the usage time between the 2% is the same as the amount of time as two 1%. I've used stop watch to measure before.

    I turned off my battery percentage and no longer have to worry or freak out when % drops each time I use it.

    I also suggest you just turn off the percentage, someone else on here suggested it, and I did, and haven't been worried about my battery life since.

    It amazes me how many people stress over that. Yes the battery indicator is not accurate and yes doesn't go down 1% at a time always.
    There's nothing wrong with your phone, no need to panic and go to apple.
    Live your life and stop watching that number every few minutes if it goes down, when or by how much.
