    I bought iPhone XS last month. And the only thing that I feel bad about it is the battery life.
    Here is my XS battery graph. It seems the lowest than every phone I ever had.
    The brightness is set around 40% with cellular off (Bluetooth and wifi always on) and background app refresh is all off. Is it normal to have around 4-5 hours per cycle(100%)?

    PS. the game I played was not consumed battery in my old device. and my phone did not hot while I was playing it.

    I think I’m getting better SOT but the battery is pretty awful on the XS.

    My XS battery actually lasts all day and it is the first phone to be able to do that.

    Seems pretty bad, my five year old iPhone 6 usually still has 60% left after a full day (from approx. 06:30 am to 08:00 pm).

    Maybe you could try the Geekbench battery benchmark to see how your iPhone XS compares to others?

    LOL, I was used as a bedroom lamp.


    I did test it last month, it seems ok though. But I'm still not satisfied with the battery life anyway. :(

    What's your average SOT per cycle?
