How can I tell if its a Samsung Chip or TSMC chip? Or is the 6s TSMC and 6s Plus Samsung Chip? Im confused about this new update.

Geekbench tests designed to push devices to their limits revealed as high as a 22% difference in battery life between devices using the two chips, real-world impacts may be much smaller depending on the mix of activities. In these specific usage patterns shown above, battery life differences between the two processors ranged from 6% to 11%.

22% is different than 11%. Let's say for the sake or argument that you have a 6 hour battery a 10% difference could be 36minutes...if you can run your phone all day, turn it on, turn it off, music, video, random data downloading, brightness differences...if you can can set both phones up side by side and run the exact test over and over again then you have too much times on your hands. In ever day use I bet you can't tell the difference, which is why I used the word "Negligible".

If you need one that bad maybe you can find a used one?

What is the 6 to 11% figure based on? Do you have an actual site/report that proves that?

You can try looking in the logs -- see my signature -- but a new phone likely hasn't run the battery down to a warning, yet.

You just have to install a free system app that can detect what type it is. I use the "Status" App and it tells me what type it is.
My phone is perfect and I don't care wither way, but I'm curious. Which "status" app do you speak of? I don't see any free apps in the app store called "Status". I do see one that's called "System Status" and it costs $2.99.

Good question.

It actually does matter if your looking for a far better battery life..
No, it doesn't. BTW, watch your aluminum foil hat as you walk in, too; it may hit the doorframe.

This has nothing to do with you or I or how we will ever use our phones.
