I think it's something to do with your bad network, or the unit is flawed. Disable your net connection and see if it still runs your battery fast? then you know that's not the problem.
in my opinion heavy usage one should not buy this phone.i am using this phone from last 3 months and believe me it's battery dies by 2pm. i am carrying battery backup kit all the time with me 😢. one who users very less only go for it.

-- turned low battery mode on
-- changed email "fetch" to "manual" for all the accounts
-- dissbled background refresh for all the apps
-- few more tweaks here and there
Having done all this, I still got a drop of 6% in 11 hours which is rather unimpressive given that so much was disabled.
I do not have wifi access in my room. And I have just switched back to 2G from 3G because of excessive data bill the past month. Im sure the phone is not looking for any other network while on standby since I have explicitly marker 2G as the only available network. Not sure whats going on.
ethereal, 17 Jan 2016That's astonishing!

With iPad i have 30 min fetch for Mail and standby time is still great.
Maybe you have bad connection and your phone try to find LTE all the time and that ruins your battery, or do you use wifi most of time? I use.

Also, if my unit is actually faulty what should I do about it? Visit the apple store and ask for a replacement? I am not sure whether they still have a policy (in India) to replace the faulty unit right away rather than repairing it. Just being on the safe side I already bought a separate replacement warranty to have the faulty unit replaced rather than repaired. So will that help?

Are you sure about that? Have you enabled/disabled any settings to achieve that sort of standby or getting that figure all out of the box?
ethereal, 17 Jan 2016Not sure how you are getting still 60% left at the end of the day with LTE on the whole day.

The stand by times are worse though. Mine dropped from 93% (at 1.00 am) to straight 79% (at 9.31 am) in just 8.30 hours while on stand by. Thats a 14% drop.
So far so good. First time Apple user here. Exceeds my expectation. I can even let my LTE on for the whole day and stil be at 60% with Spotify on
2.4Ghz Wifi = Decent
5Ghz = Decent if your close (Like in the house or right infront.) , beyond that
it either purposefully hides it from the list or it actually can't pick it up ; I do not know which.
Because , my router doesnt do 5Ghz so i cant truely confirm.
justforbusiness, 14 Jan 2016Phones now a days are disasters in terms or hardware quality.. good old Nokia, sigh.Best camera 6s
Kindly suggest iPhone 6S or 6S Plus in terms of battery usage. Currently using iPhone 5 and need to charge it 2-3 times a day. and max usage is 3G sync of data and calls.pls provide solution for it.
AnonD-1825, 16 Jan 2016Web browsing, facebook and lot of whatsapp
Usually my pure usage time is around 6-7 hours ... moreLots of whatspp - Not quite. Rather very occasional.
But I do a lot of surfing and looks like it is consuming 16% of my battery every one hour while browsing and screen is all time on with brightness set to about a quarter of max available.
This way it only translates to about 6.5 hours of continuous usage (surfing) on full charge before it finally dies in my case. Again this is about only a half of the endurance value that the gsma assessed for the browsing part. My question is do you also get similar numbers while browsing? Thanks
