I mean you have to leave that thing on the charger all the time or it's useless, OR else turn off everything that makes it an IPhone in the first place. What's the point of that?
Personally I wish I had gone for the Samsung. I don't see an IPhone 6 being in my future as it is today. Apple dropped the ball with this big time and as of the latest iOS version it still performs the same way.
My wife has the 5 and I don't hear her complaining about the battery life. Your mileage will always vary, but if battery life with this product was that much of an issue with the general population, you'd be hearing a lot more about it on the news sites and tech blogs. Apple tends to attract that kind of attention.
I carry the 4 and my battery life is beginning to be a problem...but the phone is three years old so I'd expect it by now.
