Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus battery life stats

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have displays that are larger, brighter, and with better quality than anything we've seen from Apple so far. They also have a 25% faster CPU, and 50% faster graphics. All that jazz must take a heavy toll on the battery, right? Wrong - due to the 20nm production method for the A8 chipset, and the new, more efficient chip packaging, the alleged 2915 mAh battery of the 6 Plus, and the 1810 mAh juicer of the iPhone 6 can last a long time. As you can see, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are both crossing the 10-hour of screen-on time while watching videos or browsing, which is an excellent achievement, but we will run our own test to compare those to what the current flagships can muster.

They're company numbers, so hard lies really. If you look at the more important metrics like the browsing numbers you will notice that there is maybe a 10% change in the OFFICIAL numbers. So the new iPhone is likely going to last either equal to or less than current gen iPhones, which were horrible battery wise to begin with.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahha! I can't stop laughing, I'm keeping my 5s. I hope other iPhone owners do the same. We the consumers need to teach apple a serious lesson so next year they'll give us something worth our hard end monies.

LTE = 4G. But 10 hours web browsing on 4G seems like a huge lie to me, how on earth did they get 4G almost as efficient as 3G?

No, LTE is a type of 4G (or maybe its the other way around).

honestly answer what the other hardware do that the iphone cannot do that is such a big deal. its a closed source, it do not need a snapdragon to get the same benchmark numbers

Anybody notice their specs include 4G (LTE) browsing verus 3G browsing... What about 3G talk verus 4G talk? It only display 3G talk... LOL what a joke! Another thing people need to understand is that the specs are given without providing detail of those test. Under what condition was the phone in. Some people use GPS and talk while driving. Got to be fair - love the design and software. Engineering wise... when you increase screen size, along with more features, and "faster" processor, the phone will need more juice to power all of this. If Apple failed to listen to consumers about battery life since iPhone 4 then I am afraid these new models will be no different. What good does a phone full of features can do when the phone is dead.
