    After a light work day and average use on my iPhone 5c.

    Can't wait for that big battery on the 6+

    This is the number one reason I'm purchasing an iPhone 6+. It will be great not to have to carry a charger with me every where I go.

    I wouldn't get to excited about battery life. We still haven't seen any real world reviews of battery life.

    If the battery is ANY better than my 5 then I'll be happy, because my 5's battery? It sucks.

    100% agree. So excited to see how well it does. :D

    Same, Macworld claim it does have 2gb of ram now also. Time will tell. Battery on my 5S is horrid.

    Apple has always been pretty conservative with their estimates, I'm sure it's better than any iPhone to date.

    Lol I don't even get a full day of battery life on my 5 right now. I have to charge around 3pm or so

    Is it eligible for free battery replacement under the recall?

    truly?
    I get morning to evening with my 5S and mostly have 35% - 50% battery left by then.
    turning off auto refresh for all apps makes quite a difference, though I still allow Mail to do its thing, as per default settings.
    I'm presuming you are constantly using your phone during the day?
    watching video clips, making lots of calls, and such?

    Yeah I make a few calls and a lot of browsing and texting. I miss my note 3 to be honest but hoping the 6 Plus fixes the problem for me.

    Same here. Can't wait for all day music streaming to my new bluetooth Sony stereo earbuds I just ordered.

    My 5S used to run all day and so will my 6. The Plus has an amazing battery, but you pay for that by carrying around a brick.

    yeah, on opposite day.

    They always give numbers considering you being on top of a cell phone tower in the clear blue sky. The numbers they give seem to be overinflated most of the time.... I can achieve those numbers if I turn cellular data off!!

    ----------

    This will probably be the case though... There was a point in time where the iPhone 4 typically got a better battery life than the 4s in my small sample size of family and friends. But other than that, it's gotten marginally better, generation after generation.

    Some of that bigger battery will get cancelled out by a bigger screen and thus bigger backlight. If you are constantly draining your phones by the afternoon I don't think you're safe to suddenly leave your charger at home until this battery proves itself in real world use.

    Battery usage is different for everybody. I use my 5S a lot too but rarely plug it in at night with less than 25% remaining. Only a few times a month do I have to charge during the day to top up the battery and its only during a slow day at work where my phone struggles to get a decent 3G signal.

    Now if only Apple started filling the space gained in engineering with larger batteries instead of making thinner phones...

    I've ordered the 6 plus and while I'm expecting better battery life than my current 5, isn't the larger battery just going to be cancelled out by the larger screen etc?

    No. Screen increase is around 89% from the 5s. Although the screen is typically the number 1 power drain, on an Android phone you can see exactly how much. Typically it used 25-35% of the phones battery (OS, wifi, bluetooth, cellular data, apps, gps follow behind). So with an 89% increase in screen size, we are looking at a 26.7% (.3*89) increase in screen energy consumption, assuming everything is linear (which it isn't and will likely be less).

    Now the 6 Plus has around 86% increase in battery capacity. There will definitely be a noticeable difference in battery life.

    Also take into account the CPU is more energy efficient as well.

    I just got in the SoundBlaster Roar (small bluetooth speaker). It's incredible for the price. Highly recommend it.

    In addition to what appledes7 said, you have to consider that activities not involving the screen (background push/sync/updates, listening to music, talking on the phone by your ear, etc.) will have a lot more juice to work with, so the screen doesn't even come into play.

    That's why on Apple's spec sheet for the 6 Plus, you see great battery life increases in 3G talk and music playback.

    Yep, we should see a considerable increase in battery life when the phone's screen is used sparingly. Stand-by time will be awesome, talk time very good, basically anything that doesn't involve the screen should see substantial increases. With the screen on, battery life will probably be nearly the same as previous generations, however simply because the phone has more pixels to push and a larger area of backlight to illuminate. That's just physics.

    All in all, it should be a great upgrade in battery life. Just don't expect to play games all day and have it last considerably longer.
