    Hi,

    My iphone 6s plus uses 10% battery per hour usage on youtube and whatsapp on screen brightness at 50% is that normal?

    Thanks

    Perfectly normal. Those are high-drain tasks and your screen is quite bright too.

    Thank you for your input i really appreciate it, as my OCD was kicking in high gear when i see people iphones 6s plus last more that one day or exceeds the 10 hour mark, i use mine at least 5 hours a day checking mail texting on whatsapp and after work watching youtube at the end of the day i will have about 25 % of battery left so it wont last more than a day which is good but i just want to make sure that is normal.

    Thanks again :)

    Anything over 11 hours of use just isn't possible unless you use low-drain apps, have the screen brightness set very low, or you listen to music with the screen off. The most I've ever got with a 6S+ is 12hrs 20 mins but that was on 9.0.1 which drains the battery less than 9.1 in my experience, and I was browsing over WiFi with auto-brightness on.
    I usually get around 10.5 hours of usage time. If I were to use GPS apps, play games, watch a ton of You Tube or have my screen up bright then I'd be looking at 7-8 hours of usage max.
