The anticipated iPhone 6s has been here for more than a week now, so a breakdown on the battery life of the Apple flagship is in order.
The performance of the smartphone is a mixed bag. To summarize, it supports a fierce A9 chip that outruns all competition; a memory of 2GB RAM, double compared with that of the iPhone 6; a camera that is decent but unremarkable; and an innovative 3D Touchscreen. The battery is smaller than the one on its predecessor, but does that make a real difference?
Nine hours and 41 minutes: that is the result of the initial test that estimates the 3G talk time endurance of the iPhone 6s. In comparison, Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro scored 33 hours and 20 minutes while the BlackBerry Curve 9380 came out last with 6 hours and 52 minutes. These numbers place the latest Apple handset in the mid-to-low range of battery life when compared to other producers' flagships.
Even if the talk time score is average, the web browsing time made a good impression. The battery depleted after 12 hours and 27 minutes of perusing the Internet on the updated Safari. Video watching was on for 10 hours and 46 minutes until the battery blinked at 10 percent. The impressive score was achieved at 50 percent brightness on the proprietary Video app.
A single charge of the iPhone 6s allows users to have 10 hours of video experience or 3G talking, and even more Wi-Fi skimming of webpages. If, somehow, your iPhone 6s is left idle, it can run up to eight days on a single charge.
The endurance of iPhone 6s is 62 hours, one hour more than the previous version. What this means is that users can charge their iPhone 6s once every two and a half days, provided they only use it for an hour of web browsing, talking and video playback each day.
Apple fans have stated that they are unsatisfied with the trade-off between phone slimness and battery size. This is a good sign for the company, as it proves that owners of the iPhone 6s see value in using the device at all times.
The iPhone 6s features a non-removable Li-Po 1715 mAh battery (6.9 Wh).
