    i usually keep my phone plugged in when I sleep and while I am at work at my desk. I decided not to do that and see how long my phone would last. I am very impressed. Here's what I have...

    Yes even though it's smaller than 6+ my side by side test reveals it gets almost 80% as much run time as my 6+. That's not bad for a smaller battery. If it could get as much as mine I would have bought one. My wife is enjoying her 6S+ because she is a light user and doesn't need a longer life.

    Nice to know that the iPhone battery is performing well on 6S plus (Y)

    The battery is noticeably better on the new 6S+.

    Do you know which Chip (Samsung / TSMC) it has?

    Just to kill the subject, Samsung 6s+ and equal or better battery than my 6+.

    I've only 1-2 bars where I live, 3 at best.

    Sorry my post did not match your requirements for adequate discussing.

    I was asking just out of interest. I have a TSMC and a Samsung chipped 6S+ here and am not sure which to keep. I would keep the Samsung if battery really is the same. I don't have time to test batteries in both before I need to return one. This is why I asked.

    I never said you can't talk about whatever you want... I was just pointing out that "here we go again". Most of the battery threads have ended up in the wasteland because people go off battling about what chip is better. Its been talked about to death. It would be great if people could just by an iPhone and enjoy it rather than overanalyzing it to death for fear someone got one that was slightly better than theres. Does the batter life meet your needs? That's really the most important question.

    I am very impressed with my 6s+, I've never gone below 75%, I do keep it topped off though. Much better than my 5 and 6 I still have and use as ipods.

    Don't know what chip don't care as I'm not like the bozo who says he's exchanged 6 phone and counting looking for a particular chip.

    I've been seeing this TSMC/Samsung chip thing around the forums. What exactly is the TSMC/Samsung chip thing about?

    Its about a lot of OCD people that can't deal with the fact that electronic components vary from one to the other. They figured out that Apple has two suppliers for the processor and given certain scenarios of testing they can get one to last longer than the other when comparing 2 phones. The same would be true with the same processor supplier as well. Any two electronic components will test differently. There are a lot of components in an iPhone. There have been some formal tests and as far as I'm concerned the results are inconclusive because some tests show one being better, and some show the other. Battery life is going to be more impacted by how you use your phone than which processor manufacturer you have. The crazy thing is there are people on here that have admitted to buying and returning perfectly good iPhones over and over... 10 times... to try and find the processor they want. Stuff like this is what causes companies to make their return policy less liberal.

    True, but many people who have done exchanges for faulty screens etc and ended up trying both chips report approx one hour longer usage time with the TSMC. I've had a TSMC and four Samsungs. Only one Samsung chip has equalled the TSMC, in fact slightly bettered it, the rest were significantly worse.

    An apples to apples battery test with typical usage for any particular person would be near impossible to pull off. The battery in any non-defective iPhone 6s's is so good that the marginal difference is irrelevant. Any of these self run tests are completely suspect because normal usage is not repeatable, and a lot of people are trying to exaggerate the situation. You are going to get variance with any two iPhones, regardless who made the chips.

    The silicon lottery means that no two chips are the same so we agree there. However, it is absolutely possible to have the same usage patterns most days. It depends who you are and what you do, but my usage is pretty regimented.

    At first I was not overly impressed by the 6S+ (Samsung CPU) battery life, but after a few settings tweaks, it's excellent now! I really like this phablet!!

    I have a highly customized "configurement" and would not know where to start. Most of it is not for the sole purpose of battery life, although it may still help. But I do have some of the usual stuff turned off including but not limited to Siri Suggestions in Spotlight, Background App Refresh, and Fitness Tracking in Motion & Fitness (I didn't need it tracking my steps).

    iPhone 6S+ battery life is almost as good as.my Galaxy Note 3. Might have to buy it.
