As most of you know, earlier this week MacRumors posted that our iPhones 6s A9 chip sets were outsourced by two companies that being TSMC and Samsung and that there is or could be a possible discrepancy between the two chips in performance and/or battery life in the iPhone 6s Pluses. One user posted a geek bench battery life of 6hours and 5mins with a Samsung chipped phone and another of a TSMC Chipped phone of 7 hours and 50 mins. To me, that was a huge concern. For some of us who pay close to or over a thousand dollars for our devices, to have a difference of almost 2 hours of battery life and for some who really put a premium on battery life, thats something we can't ignore. Personally, 5-20 mins of battery life is probably normal between phones because of usage, testing, etc but when its getting into 1-2 hours that for me is a problem. For me, there was no way I was going to accept the fact that someone who has the same exact phone as me (I'm talking iPhone 6s Pluses only) spec for spec and them have almost 1-2 hours more of battery life than me. Of course, I immediately downloaded the Lirum App from the app store (before it was taken down but now its been put back up) and come to find out I had the Samsung chip in my phone. I charged my phone to 100 percent and ran the test down to 0 during the middle of the night where i don't normally get tons of email, text messages, etc. After my test was finished I arrived at 6 hours and 17 minutes. Clearly not the 7h and 50 mins that the reddit user posted on the Mac Rumor article. So next course of action was to get a hold of a TSMC phone which i knew was going to require a lot of luck because i could go to the Apple Store and do a exchange but that wasn't going to assure me of getting a TSMC built iPhone, but luckily for me I exchanged my Samsung chipped phone and got a TSMC. Saved me a lot of trouble (and probably Apple as well) because I was going to get a hold of one regardless. Anyway, I did a back up of my Samsung chipped iPhone on my Mac and loaded up this TSMC iPhone with the same exact apps, pictures, music, emails etc. to give it the most realistic apples to apples comparison that i could control. I ran the test in the middle of the night at almost the same time I did my first test to avoid text messages, email, etc and the result was exactly what i was expecting. This TSMC phone came in at 7 hours and 51 mins. Logically, Apple wants to claim only a 2-3 percent difference and maybe they're right but for me, I look at them saying something like that for damage control. They are trying to avoid people like me going into the store and exchanging their phone until they got a TSMC and honestly, why wouldn't we? Again, almost 2 hours of battery life is a huge deal. That is no where near the "2-3 percent."
