    Everyone’s usage is different. I’ve gotten over 14 hours use with 50 hours standby on my 8+. Why would people lie?

    Too early to say. Today, I used it for an hour or two and it went to 80%. For now it seems like the battery is better than my 7 plus.

    61% left. 3:22 usage with 5 hrs standby. Not as impressive as my iPhone 8 plus. With 8+ I’d have at least 75% left for this kind of usage.

    Mine went down to 64% after an entire day of work. Used for quite a while while at work.

    Play music all day. If it’s locally stored I’m betting you could get 20+ hours on one charge. That’s allowing other alerts and such to come through.

    I have been whining all day about the battery having come from a plus. I did a iTunes backup and plan to do a clean install tonight and see how tomorrow is.

    I’m surprised I didn’t see other battery threads so maybe my phone Is acting up.

    It’ll probably need a few more days before battery settles down. Our phones are syncing and indexing and we’re playing with them nonstop so real usage won’t be known till next week.

    Not that good coming from an iPhone 7 Plus... granted I did a fresh install so I probably don’t have all the settings turned off I should but here are some screenshots of battery life since this morning... I’ve only been awake for a couple hours and I’m at 53%...

    Finally. I was getting tired of saying this 100x 48 hrs after every iPhone launch.

    We’re playing and fiddling with them more than our prior phones. They’re updating and indexing. We’re downloading new apps. Testing the speed and trying out the new cameras.

    I give it 5 days before I even pay attention to my battery life. Right now it’s awful and always plugged in since I’m on it and using it nonstop....and arguing with ppl on MacRumors.

    Yes because 4% is a lot over a 5 hour period?

    You’re right of course 9 minutes of playing with Snapchat is an obscene amount.

    Give me a break. SMH.

    Wouldn't the updating and indexing count as "usage" and increase that number?

    Curious, but which carrier model do you have? I have a theory that the Verizon iPhone X gets noticeably better battery life than the GSM model due to the Qualcomm modem being twice as small as the intel one (14nm vs. 28nm) and is over 30% more power efficient.

    I've got an unlocked GSM model and I'm getting decent battery life, but I've seen four other Verizon X owners reporting much better battery life than I'm seeing even with only moderate usage.
