    Hey guys,

    Let me throw in a question here: The iPhone 6s has a 2915 mAh battery and the OPT has a 3300 mAh battery. Apple is claiming that their new iphone can be in standby up to 16 FREAKING DAYS or a TalkTime on 3G of up to 24 hours.

    I know that such claims are mostly overestimations and/or only happening in perfect non recreatable conditions, but even if it holds up half the time they claim my question is the following: How can they archive such Usage times when im hearing that you can use the OPT for about a day without doing much and then needing to recharge again. In the best intepretation that would mean 24 hours standby time (FREAKING 6.25% of claimed iPhone-Time) with a BIGGER battery then the new iPhone 6s.

    How is this even remotly possible?

    disclaimer: i usually hate apple and love OP, but this point really caught my attention :)

    iOS is WAY better optimized than Android, let alone OxygenOS. That's one reason.

    And no I don't own an iPhone, I never have and never will.

    Oh ok, so in theory it should be possible with the OPT to get even better results if you would only write a better optimized OS ? ;)

    Software, my friend, software. IOS is the most skillfully balanced operating system in the world. Bigger is not always better. :)

    Although it's always hard (impossible?) to compare iPhones and Android phones, it's just a matter of software optimization...

    Yeah, there are people out here who know how to do that ;) People at XDA too... just wait for OPT to be more widely distributed.

    Great, it seems that after i get my invite sometime in the future i will have something new to wait for: a battery optimized OS from the XDA devs :D Thanks for all your answers btw. ;)

    just got my OPT and i'm thinking of that old rule of thumb that it's a could idea to fully charge, let it go completely empty, 3 times with a new phone - is that still appropriate with this generation of phone/battery?

    I am pretty sure my OPO can do that no problem.
    But that's mainly because I did a little optimizations to the OS myself:
    Hint: by doing just the same as Apple does; limiting apps and the OS from refreshing anything, except the call and messages receiver.

    OPT owner here, and former iPhone 6 Plus owner. From my experience, my OPT lasts me through about a day and a half with no charge and moderate use. The 6 Plus is around 2 days. Now, from what I have experienced, the standby time is pretty terrible on the OPT and on most android phones (I think). Whereas the 6 Plus is freaking amazing.
    So yeah, although OPT has bigger battery, software will still play a major part in determining battery life.

    No. Your battery is gonna suck, even of you have an iPhone 7 or OP3.

    Software can be optimized to suit your needs.
    In Android,
    If you want more battery life, then you should make your phone consume less battery by disabling unwanted things that you dont need. You basically have a lot of Freedom over the phone on how to make the os work according to you.
    In iphone,
    Its optimized the most to give the best battery life. You cant make it go lower or higher, because apple limits you from doing anything like that. Its good for those people who want to keep their phone simple. And for most people, they wont realize the big difference between ios and android.

    But the advantage of an Android phone can act as pc in your pocket, but the iphone can only be the best phone that it is. So since android uses more energy to do more things, therefore the considerably less battery life. But since you have the freedom to limit its capabilities, if you mod the software to limit its battery consumption, then it might give the same Battery life as an iphone.
