    Ok so I have just upgraded to IPhone 7 32GB Silver o2

    I have an iPhone 6 64GB Silver iOS 9 Downgraded from IOS 10 & fully restored

    Battery Statistics iOS 9
    Usage 28 Mins
    Standby 9 Hours 30 mins

    Battery Statistics iOS 10
    Usage 17 Mins
    Standby 7 Hours 30 Mins

    Is that normal?? Had iPhone 6 for nearly 2 years

    Dose the batter need replacing??

    Should I fix the phone & sell it or sell it for less with faulty battery??

    At least get the Apple store to diagnose what is wrong with it. The other people might be jerking on your leg!

    I went to the Istore about a week ago, they did basic Digonostic test on it & said my phone is fullly working & nothing is wrong with it (I think it's a joke) so gonna take it to another repair shop & hopefully they can fix it.

    I don't have apple care. I want it fixed/repaired for less than £70 so I can sell it or trade it in as I now have iPhone 7 32GB & no need for iPhone 6 anymore

    I would trust Apple over any third part repair shop. They can be sleazy and install used parts at best or knock-off worst.

    If Apple say it is good, sell it.

    If Apple says there is nothing worng with your phone you should be able to sell it. It would be nice if they gave you some type of written paperwork stating that it meets specs. I would rather buy your phone that one you took to some kiosk at a mall and had the open it. The serial and IMEI would no longer match if they put another circuit board in it. The board would be used and from who's old phone you may never know.

    Apple has no reason to mis-lead you. If you have no warranty, that is more money for them.

    Maybe do a clean install with no backup and see how the battery does.

    What's the issue there again? Are these on different phones? Are these usages from different times? What's the battery percentage with those usages?

    That's on my iPhone 6

    That was recorded at 1% battery on iOS 9/10 when those usages where taken...

    How soon after upgrading or downgrading were these stats taken? This is the same phone with the same exact settings simply sitting in the same exact place?

    Same settings on iOS 9/10 I downgraded to see if it was iOS 10 but it wasn't

    Phone was in the same places just left there till the battery died..

    Those stats where taken once iphone was fully charged after downgrading to iOS 9

    Don't have battery app & phone is rest ready to sell it once fixed

    I tested the phone 3-4 times & got sand stats

    Yeah just sell it as is if Apple found nothing wrong with it.

    You could try a DFU restore and then set it up as new before selling it too, that might improve things battery wise if something gone a bit dicky firmware wise somehow.

    But didn't you say 'Apple' found nothing wrong with it?

    I would try a DFU restore before selling it as faulty .. you'll get more money for it if that fixes it

    Didn't work...

    Apple did 2nd check and told It's the Power Management IC Chip that has gone same as 2nd repair shop..

    Rung apple they quoted me £200/2-4 weeks to be fixed

    I Went to every iTechnician Repair shop in my area except for one (Send them message)

    1st place £115 takes 7 days to 2 weeks (Needs to be send off)
    2nd place £39.99/£60 2-5 weeks (Needs to be send off)
    3rd place £55 2-3 days but as very specialist job iPhone might die/not work after..

    is there anywhere that get it fixed in under a week?? Or is my phone beyond repair???

    Tried eBay 2 times didn't reach reserve price

    what best thing to do with this phone??

    I want it fixed or sell it for no less than £180
