iPhone 6 gets slimmer and lighter that its forebears, but how does its battery perform? Does it outrun its competitors? Here we are going to find it out.
iPhone 6: Battery Life
The slimness of a phone can give an indicator of its own stamina. If we judged the iPhone 6's battery life like that we'd be stressed.
The iPhone 6 is powered by a 1,810mAh non-removable battery, which is a little larger than the one on the iPhone 5S, but then it it to furnish the bigger and brighter screen. Compare that to the power packs in the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S5 (2,800mAh) or the LG G3 (3,000mAh) and the battery on the iPhone 6 appears titchy.
But Apple does things differently and the iPhone 6 performs on par with all of the competition. In addition, it manages to continue a few hours more compared to the iPhone 5 S before it.
Our brutal test, before the phone expires where SD video loop, continued ten hours, an hour one less than the Galaxy S5 manages although more than the 5 that was iPhone S.
In real world testing we found the iPhone 6's battery lasted 35 hours of low miscellaneous use (including standby) and 14 hours of heavy usage, with the brightness set to 50%.
All this means which you can eek two days of life from it in the event you are really careful, but you will head home after work -60% of your battery left depending on how much you utilize it.
One major positive about the battery is the fact that it charges very quickly. You get 31 and it charges fully in two hours precisely.
You may see that the iPhone 6's battery life is excellent. But do we really need the extra slimness of several millimeters in sacrifice of 1 hour use?
