    Just sorted out some history got the conclusion we are gonna get some noticeable improvement in battery life for the first time for a long time.

    iPhone 6: 10-20% increase
    iPhone 6 Plus: 30-50% increase

    My choice is iPhone 6 Plus Space Grey 64G, the battery increase is definitely a major aspect.

    Interesting. IMO this is the main reason people are opting for the plus, it has significant battery life upgrade over 5s, whereas the 6 doesn't really. Even if they are slightly worried about the vast jump in size, the battery has long been an issue and 50% more is welcome!!

    Charging every two nights is not a dream anymore!

    To be fair I get by with the life on the 5s, as I charge in the 40 minute car journey to/from work! But the increase will be great for weekends

    ----------

    It will also be interesting to see how long it takes to charge the new bigger battery in the plus. Hope it's not 4 hours or something!

    need to take all those #s and divide by 2.

    to be fair ipad and macbooks numbers are very accurate and sometimes exceed.

    Yes it is. You get two hours of LTE browsing, not 6.

    Looks like we can pretty much all agree that the 4S had the worst iPhone battery life.

    Only a little less standby time.
    It's on par with iPhone 4 and 5

    I think the 3G takes the crown for that.
