    So there seem to be a difference when using Geekbench to test the difference between the chips. Apple claimed that the difference was negligible in real-world use. So in this thread we compare chips & real world usage. It shouldn't matter what apps you use as apple stated it was "real-world use", so if there is a real difference we should notice. Just use your phones as normal.

    The posts should look like this

    Iphone model: 6s/6s+
    Chip: Samsung/TMSC
    Screenshot of battery usage (a must.) No Geekbench ONLY SCREENSHOT OF USAGETIME!

    Please include the comments in the other thread, it would be easier for us to locate the difference between the chips in real-word usage.

    I believe it is so hard to make a fair database,

    I don't think it is, we are reflecting real-world use. If there is any difference, it should be seen in the usage time. That way no one can claim that it's an unrealistic scenario.

    And say brightness, wifi or not, LTE or not (even with wifi on), location...

    Too many variables for any of this info to be useful. Screen brightness, specific apps, cell reception, wether data used was wifi or cell, etc. etc.

    Anecdotal evidence is useless. To get real data you'd need thousands of phones in a controlled environment.

    US Eastern time zone
    6s Plus 128GB Space Grey
    TSMC Chip
    Typical use two days weekend, normal charge every night.
    40% AT&T LTE one to two bars
    60% WiFi AirPort Extreme 802.11ac Comcast cable 120 Mbps
    25% screen brightness manual, except when outside at 100%
    Hey Siri on all time, mail at 15 min, system services share location and find phone on others off, iCloud music, location on for apps if using except for weather on always, auto app update on for blocker apps others off, diagnostics usage on, advertising off, WiFi assist off, low power mode not used.

    Have run this several times since receiving phone on 9/25 with similar results. All running smoothly, no lag, no issues what so ever. It's a keeper.

    Not at all, since we are measuring real-world use. Apple is claiming 2-3% in real-world use aka "uncontrolled environment". All the different variables can be seen as noise, and with a moderately large sample there can easily be spotted a trend between the chips (If there is any!). This is as close as real-world as we get.

    The noise (variables) does not matter as a TMSC and samsung-person will use the phone the same way. If it's hard for us to spot a trend (as obvious as geekbench), then the difference is negligible.
