    Hi. For those who have had both the iPhone 6s and 6, which do you find to last longer? Considering getting a 6s, but if the battery life is only decent, I'll wait to just see if the 7 fares better. Thanks.

    I have found that battery life depends a lot on how the phone is used. I have owned the 4s, 5, 5s, and the 6s and my iPhones typically need charging every other day. My current 6s is used for daily running and I have two gps-heavy apps in use for a couple hours each day. I don't do gaming or videos, but I do engage in web surfing, email, book reading and office document work.

    Note: Plus models are irrelevant to me.

    Going based off of same usage of 6 and 6s is more of the question.

    if the plus models are pretty much the same then its safe to say the 4.7" model should be about the same as well.

    I'm asking for practical, non-theoretical results

    I've used both for almost a year now, 6s is about 5% worse I'd say, whilst doing the same things.
