    Seems low. Have you completely closed out of Safari? Or do you leave it running in the background throughout the day.

    I typically close everything after I'm done.

    Got my new battery installed. I opted to do that instead of buying a new phone. Look at the stats now.

    This is not right, you should get around 8 hours of light to regular use out of an iPhone 6 plus battery, can I ask how old is the iPhone?

    Yeah it was definitely a failing battery. Glad that it is all worked out!

    It was probably over 500 cycles as the replacement battery has gotten the OP 800X more battery life.

    What the heck?? That's better than mine and I have a 6s Plus without the Facebook app! And my iPhone is only a month old...

    What's on the top of your battery stats?

    Have you checked to see what apps are running, sometimes if you have apps running in the background this will decrease your battery last time.

    It's a launch day 6 plus. I received it in September of 2014. This is the kind of battery life I was getting back then. It's nice to have "my old phone back".

    It's like having a new phone. And the "Genius" at the Apple Store said I didn't need a new battery. She was wrong.

    Considering doing a replacement on my 6 plus as well. Where did you purchase your replacement OP? I am tempted to buy the iFixit kit.

    I paid the $80 and had Apple do it right in store. This is a repair i could have done myself but I was traveling to Hawaii for a month and just needed to get it done.

    I've got the iFixit replacement kit on its way to me, although it seems to be stuck in customs.

    80 isn't so bad if you are in a pinch as you were. I ended up ordering the iFixit kit to replace mine.

    I ordered the iFixit kit as well! Hopefully it is a good replacement solution for us both!

    I also know it's a bit risky to replace the battery and didn't want to have to replace the screen as well or have to buy a new phone. I'm saving for the new iPhone in September.

    Well I replaced the battery (had problems getting the old battery out due to the adhesive strips snapping when I tried to slide them around the battery, had to use a hair dryer and plastic card method). Phone started up OK and no obvious issues with screen etc. However after a few minutes on charge the phone rebooted, and this continued every few minutes until I unplugged the lightning cable. So I decided to run the battery down to empty and charge fully to recalibrate, however the phone has been sitting at 3-4% for a number of hours and hasn't powered down yet.
