    I have the 7. I don't think I'm seeing a better battery with this compared to my 6S. I've barely used it today and I'm at 55%.
    Usage: 2 hrs 14 minutes.
    Standby. 10 hrs.
    Does this look normal?
    What are you experiencing?

    I see a huge difference, recently my 6S has been failing to reach me till 2pm under normal usage (my day starts at 6am).

    My 7 now gets me till 5-6pm which is sufficient for me.

    You've got a brand new phone and you've barely used it...sorry, don't believe that. Maybe you've had that sucker on much longer than you think.

    I picked up a 7+ around noon today. I've been putting it under some heavy usage and its still at 78%.

    Launch day 7+. This was today. So far similar to my 6S+ when it was new. I'm hoping it'll get a little better as time goes on.

    Anyone use the apple battery case? Bulky? Heavy.
    HA ha. Used it a lot yesterday. But today worked outside most of the day, so it sat inside.
    I thought I'd at notice an improvement, but doesn't feel like. Maybe I'll try the battery case.

    My 7plus battery is a HUGE improvement over my 6plus. Which was brand new 6 months ago to replace my broken 6 plus from 2 years ago. And the 6plus had a great battery.

    Yes, yes, and yes. Used it from Dec 15-Aug 16. It was pretty bulky and added heft to the device. But the battery life was just amazing with it, so it was worth it to me. Another thing I didn't like about it was that it was silicone, so it stuck like mad to the inside of your pants pocket.
