IPhone 6 battery life

IPhone 6 battery life, weaker than Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3 

The specialists from Consumer Reports tested the new iPhone 6 battery and concluded that even is the best battery made for any Apple smatphone, does not exceed the competitors.
Apple strongly said that the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 battery life, is improved compared with iPhone previous versions. Consumer Reports have tested this and indeed it is better than their predecessors but are weaker if are compared with Sony Xperia Z3, HTC ONE M8 or Samsung Galaxy S5.
In preliminary tests, iPhone 6 Plus with its large screen offered less than 17 hours talk time after a single charge. The smaller version, iPhone 6, lasted less than 10 hours. That is far from the figures that Apple claimed (24 hours for iPhone 6 Plus and 14 hours for iPhone 6). But in general, this figures refer to ideal conditions.

It is a step forward from iPhone 5S, offering around 8 hours of talk time. But the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 battery life are far from LG and Samsung S5 that offer 19 or 20 hours of talk time.

Above is iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 battery life when we talk on the phone. But how long it takes to drain iPhone 6 battery life when playing games, watching movies or making other stuff on our smartphones? Well, four days after iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were released, first battery life test was made for the two phones, and in the picture below you can see the results.

According to this test, iPhone 6 battery life is 5 hours and 22 minutes, while the iPhone 6 Plus battery life is 6 hours and 32 minutes. With these battery test results, gain their places among the smartphones with the best battery life .
The test was done using a web script that runs various tasks that are designed to mimic the daily use of the phones, but the method is, in my point of view, wrong and far from providing results during normal use.

In the picture above you have the first test for iPhone 6 Plus battery life,made by iDevice.ro, and the result is completely different from that obtained from a web script that automatically runs some tasks. The phone was used most of the time, for web browsing on 3G, I used it for web browsing on Wi-Fi, for playing games, for recording pictures and video, for Personal HotSpot and got the autonomy above.  

Although maybe some will say that it is insufficient, but doing the same tasks on iPhone 5S, i would have to charge it two times. In the end I can be very satisfied with what is now offering iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 battery life after the first charge.
