    My Galaxy S4 has been letting me down lately and I'm thinking of getting an iphone 6 or 6 plus. If anybody made the transition can you tell me how the battery life is? Thank you

    I recently switched from an (SKT) Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A to an iPhone 6 Plus. Prior to the S4 LTE-A, I used an iPhone 4S. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED my S4 LTE-A, the LTE was super fast, and battery life was great until after a year of use. Then, it just didn't hold a charge that long. I LOVE my current iPhone 6 Plus as well. The battery life is unlike any other device I have ever used. I can get through a full day of heavy use and still have 10-20% of battery left. There are some things that I miss from the S4; however, the iPhone 6 Plus is a welcome change. If you are thinking about changing it up and going to iOS, I say go for it. I am glad that I did. I have been using Apple products for years, Macs, iPads, iPods, and iPhones. I welcomed the change to Android, it was a great experience. I think that going to iOS is a nice way to keep things fresh. I would have enjoyed a Galaxy Note 4, however, I think it wouldn't have been too much of a change to excite me since the interface of the S4 and Note 4 is very similar.

    If you are debating between an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, get the Plus. One reason is better battery life. The other is the screen. Right before I went to the 6 Plus, I used a 5S for 2 months. It was VERY difficult to go from a 5 in S4 to a 4in 5S. Yes the 6 is a bigger 4.7 inches, but it is very difficult to revert to a smaller screen. Get the 5.5 in 6 Plus.

    I didn't really make a transition rather, I own a S4 as well as an iPhone 6. Two evident changes I noticed are

    1) Battery life on my S4 is longer than my iPhone 6
    2) It takes way less time to charge the S4 as compared to iPhone 6

    Having said that, I have a few justifications in favour of iPhone 6's battery. While it is indeed true that the 6's battery discharges faster than the S4, it doesn't die on me mid-day. An above moderate use may take the levels from 100% at 7:00 in the morning to 30% by 7:30 in the evening (as compared to 100% to 65% for S4 on a typical day), but I have always had enough battery left till the end of the day which is more than okay for me because I would (and I must) anyway plug-in my device before going to sleep - whether its at 65% or 30% to have an uninterrupted use the next weekday/weekend.

    If battery life is your concern & if you are used-to/don't mind using a larger screen then the iPhone 6 Plus won't disappoint you (or even S5 users in that matter) at all.
