    Is this normal? I bought the 6S new from best buy around late July this year.

    It just seems like its losing too much too soon.

    Right now its 1600/1715

    Try a restore as new if you haven't already and see if the battery improves.

    Those apps aren't entirely accurate. I wouldn't rely on them entirely. The one I prefer is coconutBattery (http://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutbattery/) but it requires a Mac (then connecting your phone to the Mac).

    Even that can have a little bit of a variance especially if the phone isn't 100% charged. I only record % from design capacity when the phone is 100% charged and I see a 1-2% variance.

    For example, when my phone was 60% --- the design capacity once showed a 6% difference. That 6% difference went away when the phone was charged to 100%.

    Test it tomorrow or when you wake up with a full charge and see what it says.

    We need to know your cycle count to know if it's normal
