iPhone 6 Plus vs. iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 5s vs. iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 4S: Battery life compared

Battery life

One of the biggest gripes about Apple’s iPhone has been its battery life. So it didn’t come as a surprise to find that battery life was one of the top features that readers were most excited about.

Thankfully the bigger iPhones seem to have allowed Apple to include a bigger battery, as Apple claims that iPhone 6 Plus offer longer battery life.

While we have compared the tech specs of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5, we thought we should just do a battery life comparison to give a clearer picture.

iPhone 6 Plus offers up to 20% improvement when it comes to internet use (LTE) over the previous generation iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and also the 6th generation iPhone 5. If you consider internet use over 3G, then the improvements are a lot more, and you could get improvements of as much much as 50% over the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5, and 100% over the iPhone 4S.

When it comes to the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, the battery life improvements are marginal.

So it’s quite clear from the comparison table above that if battery life is your biggest concern then you should get the iPhone 6 Plus, assuming you can rock the bigger screen.
