    So my wife has a Rose Gold 128 GB iPhone 7 and I have a Matte Black 128 GB iPhone 7 Plus. I was curious of how the regular 7 compared to the 7 Plus so today we tested them. Below are the results at the time of plugging them in tonight.

    iPhone 7 Results:

    Usage - 8 hr 45 min
    Standby - 16 hr 34 min
    Battery Percent - 6%

    iPhone 7 Plus Results:

    Usage - 9 hr 9 min
    Standby - 16 hr 22 min
    Battery Percent - 15%

    I figure she could have got past 9 hours and I could have got past 10-11 hours. Her phone is running iOS 10.0.2 and I am running iOS 10.1 Beta. I suspect I MAY get a little bit better battery life when 10.1 is fully finished and released but we will see.

    NOTE: We are both heavy phone users and very active on social media, streaming, phone calls, etc.

    I'm really surprised with how good the battery on my iPhone 7 is. Better than my 6+ for sure but maybe that's because this is a new phone and my 6+ was 2 years old?

    Removing the 3.5 Jack may have been inconvenient for most, but it opened room for the improved battery life. At least two hours worth for both the 7 and 7 Plus. I have both models and I too have seen an increase.

    i really like this tópico and of course i had both iphone 7 with smart battery case and 7 plus.
    Eventi without using smart battery i esa feeling the 7 battery good as 7 plus, with the disconvenience of cant charge 7plus in mobilità (there isn't any smart battery for iphone 7plus).

    i really like bigger display and camera, but portability it's the priority for me
