    I know iphone 6(regular) is supposed to be better or at least on par with iphone 5/5s, but would like to check if that is the case from you guys!
    If so, how much better in your normal avg usage?

    I feel like I have been using my 6 a lot more than my 5s because its new and I am just playing around with it, but I am getting much better battery life than my 5s. I was getting 7-8 hours of moderate to heavy use on my 5s (which I was extremely happy with) and I am now getting 10+ hours easily on my 6.

    The battery last a day without charging.

    It is clearly by far superior than the one in the iphone 5, iphone 5s and iphone 4S

    To me it feel 25-40% better, lasts more than full day, and usually dont have to charge till noon next day, very happy with battery.

    It definitely lasts longer, I usually take my phone off the charger at around 815 every morning and with my 5S I would have to charge it around 430 to make sure it lasted into the night, with my 6, I use it the same and it lasts all the way until 1030-11 with it either dying or having 10% left, that's with more YouTube watching and playing some games, so for sure it's an improvement, it's definitely as good as the iPhone 4 was when it first came out with iOS 4 and 5, it was a beast with battery life then, always knew Id never have to charge it during the day

    Yep, used to come home with 30-40% on my 5S. My 6 is returning home with 60-70% when I put it on the charger.

    I've been using it the same as my 5 and I can get 1.5-2 days out of it.
