Apple iPhone SE hidden ace: better battery life than iPhone 5s and 6s

The Apple iPhone SE is here and it has a hidden ace up its sleeve: battery life.

While there is no official info just yet about the actual capacity of the 4-inch iPhone's battery, Apple has provided the official battery life numbers and the iPhone SE beats not only the iPhone 5s that it succeeds, but also the more expensive iPhone 6s.

The biggest gains of up to 30% you'd see come in battery life while browsing and watching video, while for audio and 3G talk time the numbers between the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s are identical.

We have put together a table to show you the difference between the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 5s battery life (in hours) right below:

Isn't the screen smaller then the 6 and 6s so that it has less work to do then those two phone? This should be a no brainier that it would out last the other two models

You forget that the phone is smaller and thus there is less space for a big battery.

You forgot it's thicker, and has no 3D touch to take up space.

who do these comparisons? seriously they don't use common sense, it's not that the battery is better than the 6s, it's just that the damn thing is a miniature so it will use less battery than the big one duh!

Anyone know what this phone will cost on contract? My Android is too big and I miss my old small iPhone (3.5 inch screen)

Im guessing $50 or less with a contract if the unlocked price is starting at $399

Hmm this would take a fight to the Plus one !
Considering it's size it's amazing, compared to anything.
Will there be am smart battery case for this ??
And hope this sets a trend for the iPhone 7... A flagship will be better than this.

Battery life for the 5SE seems in between the 6S Plus and the 6S, which means it should be pretty good for the most part... it should charge up pretty dang quick since it has a small battery too

If the iPhone 6 and up support quick charge, this one could possibly too...

It takes longer to charge the iPhone 6 (1810 mAh, 147 min), 6 Plus (2915 mAh, 171 min), 6s (1715 mAh, 150 min), and 6s Plus (2750 mAh, 165 min) despite them having smaller batteries than my OnePlus One (3100 mAh, 120 min)

And PhoneArena already debunked that myth that charging with an iPad charger is much faster:

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Can-you-really-charge-an-iPhone-faster-with-a-more-powerful-charger-We-investigate_id79100

So, they definitely don't support quick charge, at least not here on earth...
