    I am just wondering if my battery life is bad on the 7 plus, i normally just get 5-6 hours of usage out of the phone before the batty dies. ive seen people getting 10-15 hours of usage. i am running iOS 11 GM, but had a similar battery life at iOS 10.3.3

    Here is a screenshot:

    The battery does good when in standby, normally loosing 1-2% at night, but when using the phone i think its not that good...

    I am just wondering. How can people get 10-15 hours of usage? how is that even possible?

    Music does not use much battery, I would bet the people that get 10-15 hours have the screen off playing music for 8+ of those hours

    also depends what apps your using Twitter and Facebook are battery hogs

    the only way to compare if you can get the same as someone else is match their settings, have the same apps installed and use them the same length of time as them.
