    I just can't do it. I get way too anxious about watching the percentage drops lol

    I do just for a heads up. My 6+ lasts me 2 days on 1 charge

    Once you turn it off and just use your phone the way you want you often find that the battery life is actually pretty good.

    My batter percentage has been stuck permanently on as a remnant from SBSettings through jailbreaking my original iphone, where I was using that option. I've never setup any of my phones as new since the 2g and now I can't turn it off - the switch has never worked for me. Anybody know of where the setting could be living in the restore?

    I keep mine on. From 100% to 99% it can take about good 30-50 minute of usage to lose 1% (everytime). Unlike my iPad Mini Retina, it takes about 5 minutes of usage before it drops to 99%. But nonetheless it does not bug me. I like to keep it on so I know where the battery level is.

    I do leave it on. Once my phone reaches 25-30% I try to not use it, and leave some percentage left in case of an emergency.

    I do, only because I am so used to it being on.

    Of course I have it on. As a heavy user I have better control when to take longer breaks or when to switch over to iPad for certain things.

    I definitely leave it on. It's just easier to read. I don't fret over it. Btw only down to 62% since 8am. Not bad.

    Yes, I'd like to know approx. when my phone is going to die.

    Red does nothing for me :)

    Always leave it on...have to know if it gets down too low. I can't imagine not having it on.

    Yep

    I like the percentage to be shown. Battery life is great, but it's still nice to get a quick glimpse to see how long until I need a charge.

    Never ever ever ever ever had it off and never ever ever ever ever want it off. I can see a number and not be OCD about it. And I like to know what I have left.

    Yeah. If for no other reason that there's nothing else in that space if I don't have it on, so no real downside to having more information.

    Nope, I leave it off. If I see the number there I find myself checking it all the time; when it's off I don't even think about battery life most of the time.

    I've been leaving it on since it was an option in vanilla iOS. Goes back to the 3GS days, I'm pretty sure. iOS 4 maybe?

    Can't imagine not being able to see it. I'm OCPD like that.

    How do you turn it on with the 6 Plus? I was looking and can't find it. My other iPhone was left on since my jailbreak SBS Settings. I would love to turn on percentages. Perhaps I will look again. thanks in advance.

    I'm with OP. Too OCD to keep the percentage on.

    Ditto. As long as you're not neurotic, I can't think of a good reason why you wouldn't want an accurate measure of how much juice is in your battery.

    Yep. I wish I could turn off the battery icon and just keep the percentage.
