What is your device and iOS version? Furthermore, and more importantly, it would be more helpful to see app usage breakdown.
More than 9 hours of usage time is quite excellent if you use apps like, say, Facebook, YouTube, games, etc. extensively. Brightness and other setting configurations (number of notifications, background app refresh, location settings, etc) affect battery life. If you have all the settings as iOS default (not changed anything since you got your phone), then the battery life you are getting is really good.
Newest beta on a 6S. I keep Low Power Mode on most of the day, but I constantly run apps like Facebook, Tinder, YouTube, and Periscope to name a few.
low power mode was intended to be used as a last ditch effort to get a couple of more hours out of your battery before you reached a charger. Using it on all the time:
Reduces CPU and GPU performance
Pauses discretionary and background activities, including networking
Reduces screen brightness
Reduces the timeout for auto-locking the device
Disables Mail fetch
Disables motion effects
Disables animated wallpapers
You're basically dumbing down your phone. If the extra battery is worth it for you then awesome. I'd rather have a full functioning full power phone with 10 hours of battery life.
Low Power Mode will certainly skew the numbers. Being plugged in will also affect them. How much battery was left when the screenshot was taken?
Low Power Mode on a 6s lowers the A9 CPU to roughly A8 levels.
so it clocks down to a previous generation effectively turning his iPhone 6S into an iPhone 6?
Perhaps in the sense of CPU (as it would still have 2 GB of RAM and any other hardware improvements that are part of the 6s line).
Yeah pretty much a 6 with 6s features.
Here are a couple screenshots for geekbench 3 for my iPhone 6. First screenshot are the results with Low Power Mode off. Second screenshot are the results with Low Power Mode on.
For a iPhone 6, it underclocks to below a 5s. Pretty much inbetween a 5 and 5s (5 usually scores around 700 single core and 5s usually scores around 1400 single core.)
I've seen screenshots of a 6s being roughly are 6 scores with Low Power Mode on.
