Our iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus battery life tests are done, both trail the competition

For most Apple fans, the iPhone, irrespective of the generation, is above
reproach. And in our experience, this is justified for a very big part.
But the latest iPhones, including the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus,
have a very specific and undeniable weakness when compared with what
competitors offer, and that weakness is battery life.

As usual, we
put the two aforementioned iPhones though our custom battery life test,
which attempts to estimate how long the average person will be able to
use a given device if he doesn’t put it down at all. With that in mind,
the iPhone 6 battery life score of 5 hours and 22 minutes is
underwhelming, especially if you consider competitors from the Android
camp — the Samsung Galaxy S5, for example, clocks in at 7 hours and 38
minutes, while the new Sony Xperia Z3 managed the whopping 9 hours 29
minutes. Both of these have larger-capacity batteries, but aren’t as
thin as the iPhone 6 — though that’s one trade-off that not all would
agree with.
Looking at the iPhone 6 Plus battery life results,
things are better — it scored 6 hours and 32 minutes, which is
actually better than competing 5.5-inchers like the LG G3 (6 hours 14
minutes) and Oppo Find 7a (6 hours 6 minutes), but still trails a number
of flagship Android devices from the last year or so. Still, the
significantly larger physical footprint of the iPhone 6 Plus has
obviously allowed for a more generous battery, and this shows. Check out
the results below.
