Third day since I’ve had the phone, battery life is looking real good, improving every day, today has been a mix of 4G and WiFi, during the day 4G screen brightness cranked up to high, no dark mode, now at night on dark mode and WiFi.

Today I’ve been using safari, YouTube, camera for taking photos and videos and sending messages.

52% battery life left, approaching 5 hours usage, seems like battery life is getting better every day, can’t seem to kill this battery in a single day.

How are you guys finding battery life?

This is promising. Haven’t had the phone for 24 hours yet but will report back once I have.

Too early to make observations about battery life ;)

Let’s settle after a week and get a better sense of how long can this monster stay awake!

Here you go. Started 100% at 8am and had 17% by 10pm. Not bad. It’s all heavy use to with you tube streaming and lte usage.

Battery life is great.

Note, I’m using dark mode (previously just at night but now all the time) so that probably helps significantly.

Battery life is great but not used it heavy i ended the day on 5 hours, 8 mins screen time with about 40% left. Not sure how people can get 8-9 or more on their phones. Can’t imagine sitting on a phone that long
Nah I usually have it playing something more akin to background noise. Not in front of my phone. I was actually out and about.

I charged mine to 100% on Saturday morning and it’s Sunday afternoon and I still have 44% as I’m writing this.

It’s a beast. For my regular use which is by no means heavy use compared to other users here, it’s amazing so far. Could easily get through 2 days.

Edit: forgot to mention that it has also been doing iCloud photo uploads in the background so no complaints!

I fully charged my Pro Max when UPS delivered it on Friday @ 5:51pm. It's now 10:15am on Sunday and I'm at 48%. That's with only 2 hours 10 minutes screen time though. I don't live on my phone like most people do. But still, I'm pretty happy with my Pro Max's battery life so far. Looks like it'd be very hard for me to drain the battery in one day.

Charged it to 98% on Friday. Its Sunday Morning looks like it will make it to 48 hours. I listened to a lot of podcasts, tried Netflix, and My Dish Network App, Enabled health Monitoring combined with My Apple watch.

Decent onscreen time (usually just playing stuff on YouTube and leaving the screen on with max backlighting) not even hitting 50%. This battery is a beast ... for now.

How the hell do you guys do 6, 8, 10 or even more hours of screen time before charges? Good Lord, I think I must be the only person on this forum that doesn't live on his iPhone.
About 5 hours is usual for me. I had a Sunday of different groups of friends wanting to video call / play crappy mobile games. Not usual for me 😂
