    61% since 6:30 this morning. My old 7+ would be at 45% by now

    I needed a smart battery case to make it through a day on my 7- for a stock phone the X battery is mildly a step above the 7 (based on my usage patterns).


    Stop being lazy Apple, make a battery case.

    For me I barely got 8 hours use out of it. My Plus can go 10-12+ hours

    With the X you'll get 7-8 hours.

    And how much of that 12 hours is audio playback which drives up usage time without actually using the phone.

    My battery isn’t great. I miss my 7+ and 8+ based on battery alone. I️ expected a down tick and have it.

    11 hours standby and 4 hours 15 mins usage and i am at 55%. I️ need a battery case!!

    Mine is off charge for around 15 hours a day, end up with low 40 percent left. I’m very happy with it.

    8 hours, 2 min of usage, 16 hours standby and at 57%. Usage was mostly web browsing, podcasts, and Spotify.

    If it lasts longer than my 7 Plus I'll be happy, which isn't saying a lot to begin with.

    It’s been about 14 hours with my normal use and it’s at 38%. Only charging once a day (vs my iPhone 6 - theee charges a day)

    I'd be interested to know what "normal" is for you? I play games and watch a lot of YouTube and it just eats through my 7+'s battery.

    Probably not the same as you. On and off access email and social media apps. My battery says 11 hours of usage but it would not equate to YouTube!

    got a few minutes over 10 hours today before it was out of juice. Mixed usage of phone, text, safari, reddit, etc.

    I think the test that makes the difference, is time. It's not unknown that only a year later, the 7+'s battery has deteriarated at a ridiculous rate. So while the X might not be the ultimate heavy weight in terms of battery life at this moment, I think checking in on the X and 8+ in 6 months will be a more reasonable assessment.

    What on Earth makes you think that the 8+ has double the battery life of the X?

    If he's getting 6 hours on an X he will get 12 hours on a Plus.
