I used my phone pretty heavy yesterday at work. I had a family issue that I was discussing with my wife. Most of the messages were sent thru my Apple Watch, so that counts as usage since it goes thru my phone to send them. I have read for years about how iPhone battery life is so great when the phone is new, but people always warn “it’ll go to **** in 5-6 months like every other iPhone.” I’m here to tell you it’s still solid as ever. Can you imagine if the 8 plus had an Android sized battery of 3300-3500mah? It would literally last a light user an entire week. I’ve had this iPhone since December and it is still impressing me. I’m curious to see how iOS 12 affects things. If you need a new phone today, you can do a lot worse than an 8 plus.
