Apple says iPhone 6 will let you browse over WiFi for 11 hours and over 4G LTE for 10 hours. The iPhone 5S has been found to last for 10 hours over 4G LTE and WiFi. Though, iPhone 6 is just an hour improvement to iPhone 5S. It will be interesting to note user’s response to it.
Matter of Personal Choice
iPhone 6’s battery life may be just good for some of you. For high users it may get irritably bad. When you take your phone out for a hectic day at work and use it for browsing, texting, making calls and much more. You may end up disappointed with iPhone 6.
On the contrary, having the same battery life as its predecessors can actually be good news for iPhone 6 battery makers. Since, they do not have to make room for added features.
Matter of factly, Apple could have been more sensitive to the battery life of its coolest new iPhone. Instead of offering a bigger size phone with larger screens, they could have worked upon improvisations on battery life for a – more productive experience.
With Apple offering iWallet and other amazing health apps, it makes more sense to have an additional battery life. You obviously, don’t want to get stuck in the middle of the road with your dead phone’s GPS or in the gym with your health tracking app.

If you are seriously looking out for a long-lasting and sustainable battery life, then iPhone 6 has nothing to offer you. Though, iPhone 6 is considered as a major improvement.
Samsung Galaxy S5 offers the same stand-by of 10 days as iPhone 5S. When comparing to iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung’s stand-by falls short by six days.
