    Hi im very close to getting a 6 or 6 plus,im coming from a htc one m7.
    Just wanted to ask how long battery life do you get on your devices?
    Im quite a power user and can use the web browser for hours on end.
    On gsm arena is actually says the 6 beats the 6 plus for web browsing hours is this true?

    Quite torn between the 6 and 6+ as i think the 6 will be more comfortable but better for videos etc on the plus.
    Any advice appreciated.
    How long you can use web browser could be key for me :)

    Here's a quick comparison between the two:
    • Audio: 50h vs. 80h
    • Video: 11h vs. 14h
    • Browsing: 11h vs. 12h
    • 3G talk: 14h vs. 24h
    • Standby: 10d vs. 16d

    I've used both. The 6+ will be much better than your M7. The 6 after my day would be about 30% left and the 6+ 60%

    If you want the battery go with the 6+ and know it's the longest lasting iPhone available.

    Thanks for your opinion and how do you think the 6 would compare to the m7?
    On a work day when i use the browser a lot on the m7 i get around 5-6 hours under pretty much constant use?

    In the middle of several books.
    With mixed use and varying signal strength, I get about 8hrs + on my iPhone 6.

    That's about what I get when away from home on wifi. I office out of my house so I use my phone heavily during the day and I get through a day with no issue.

    I just squeeze 10 hours on my 6+ with mixed use & 2-3 dots of signal - web browsing, iMessage, Whatsapp and a few calls.

    I own both 6 and 6+.

    When I use my 6 I will end up with 30-40% remaining at the end of an average day.

    When I use my 6+ I will have no less than 50-65% some times even 70%. Same amount of use and tested multiple days.
