Is it just me or everyone's 6 plus consumes power much quickly?

    My 6 plus has terrible battery.
    I charged fully on 10am. Now it's 12:25pm and I only have 71%...
    Just regular use. Music and text.

    It's just not calibrated properly. It's displaying 71% but in reality you have a lot more. What you are going to notice is when you get to 1% battery your phone will last there for quite a long time before it dies.

    Use your phone like normal for the rest of the day and let the battery die, then recharge it to full. This will re-calibrate your battery.

    Mine is getting 10-12 hours of screen time, so something isn't right.

    There is no way to know screen on time. Yours is usage time. Ballpark screen on time is to divide usage time by half or 2/3.

    Seems low to me. Did you turn off Background App Refresh?

    I am moderate user and will see 2 days and around 10-11 hours usage.

    I can test better when I get an extra charger for work and car.

    It's just you. My 6 Plus's battery lasts for hours among hours of heavy use and just when I think I should plug it in to charge it, it's still hovering around 60% battery left. Check your settings.

    Mine lasts forever. You may have a defective device. I would suggest an exchange.
