    guessing this is the +? That seems inline with previous versions.

    Actually that is probably about right. I have an SE and have 5h33min standby, 2h23min (useless stat) usage, and 83% left.

    On pace for 31 hours standby :O

    I saw that. Used to get 5 1/2 - 6 hrs on my 6 and slightly less on my 6S but had a ton of stuff turned off.

    The first two days were awful. But it's getting slowly better. I had it sitting on the counter yesterday while cooking dinner (the recipe app stays on always), and I forgot to turn it off. After about an hour, it was at 99%. I thought it was frozen or something, but it wasn't. Weirdest thing ever.

    Is this similar (also iPhone 7)? Not overly impressed with it but I'm used to using power packs with every iPhone I've had and I play a lot of Pokemon Go which just destroys the battery. Constantly connected to my Watch too with notifications always on.

    Looks decent to me. I'd prbably keep bluetooth off when not in use but that is still pretty close to my stats.

    7 to 6s seems like you get a good two hours more which is great to know,

    It's not that unusual to be at that usage with 45% remaining on a 6 for me, although usually not with as much standby time (probably closer to 8 hour range) typically. Although if I don't use it as much and leave it alone I can certainly be around there in standby time too. It's not to say it's always like that or necessarily often, but not that uncommon either.

    Not sure that shows more usage as a flashlight, just that it ended up using 2% of battery over the last 24 hours, which could easily mean it was used for just a short period of time and that's about it.

    I think OP charged his phone and walked away from it for a day.

    I know that how one uses their phone makes a big difference, but this doesn't look any better than what I get on my 6.

    iOS 10 seems to have improved the battery life on my 6s.

    Well every other app or type of usage was only half as much at 1%

    Well, it does have over 3 hours of usage. It seems that the apps that are displayed are just those that are at the lower end of the usage list, with higher usage apps being above that (just not on the screen basically).

    Anyone else notice the battery charging much slower than their previous device? I used to have a 6 and it seems to be charging around 2x slower. I guess this is because the increased capacity?

    Good catch....OP needs "Tayler" app so he can stitch several screens together. You just overlap and take several screen shots and it stitches them together into one long shot. Works great.
