I can only dream of that usage on my 5s; I am tethered to a plug for most of the day. I was hoping to swap out with a "free" upgrade to the 6 this year but a battery that potentially allows me to leave all the cool features of the OS on (instead of turning everything off bar the basics), and might last a full days usage without a top up is very tempting to me, as purported from the Android side of the pond (namely galaxy 5s, m one-8 and z3). But I agree we have no idea what the tester did with the iPhone 6 in this video to run it down so much in apparently a short amount of time. I'm hoping the general consensus on the 6's battery life is good as I would prefer to keep everything apple for now.
