    Wow I'm well pleased with the battery life I've got up till now I'm still on 48% and I charged it to around 90% on launch day (couldn't wait any longer) and I've been heavy user..

    Can you please elaborate what exactly does heavy user mean ? I mean What apps or games have you been playing and its duration and are you connected continously on wifi or LTE or celular data and how much is your brightness ?

    I haven't put this down since I got it yesterday, and the battery life is fantastic, I finally hooked it up to charge last night around midnight and it still had 13% left. So from 8:50am til midnight of continuous use, watching movies, playing games, wifi on and Bluetooth and just playing around with the phone, that pretty darn good to me!

    The battery on my 6 Plus is amazing. The biggest jump in performance I've had with any new hardware or software period.

    Not impressed at all. 100% at 7:30 this morning. 7% by 1pm. Worse than my 5S by far.

    I've read that restoring from a backup rather than just setting it up as a new phone can cause battery issues.

    I'm fairly pleased. The initial act of restoring from a backup actually drained a lot of battery. I got it down to 8% then charged it back up overnight. So far today: 2 hours 13 minutes of usage, 6 hours 21 minutes standby, 91% left.

    I think it would be helpful if the battery usage showed you which apps were draining batter since the last charge rather than just in the last 24 hours.

    I'm surprised at the different responses. I know I wouldn't be happy if I had issues, glad I don't.

    Did you go into battery usage to see what app(s) were eating up your battery?

    Heres a good tip: you shouldn't follow the method of a full charge and a full discharge. Avoid letting the phone run all the way down. lithium based batteries are designed to be charged early and often, and letting them get too low can damage the battery. doing shallow discharges and frequent charging prolongs battery life.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this. My pattern is to allow my phone to drain until about < 50% and then I charge it up to 100%. I got about 16 hours of standby time and 12 hours of usage on my 6. I personally don't recommend a full discharge but a partial discharge.

    WOW! That is amazing. That's nearing iPad mini retina status haha. I hope the 6 is decent, and hopefully I can trade mine in when I get it tomorrow for the Plus (when AT&T gets some in)

    That's better than 5 on the 5s! :) Turn down your brightness a little, and try turning gps off at times you're not using it.

    I was hoping for 8+ as I use GPS for work every day. Looks like I'll be buying a plus off contract when they're available and selling the 6 to recoup most of the cost.
