How favorable have Logos users with large libraries found the 128gb version of the iPhone 6S Plus. Particularly, how well does the battery support extended use of the Logos app?

Randy, I confess a couple things: first, I only have the 64 GB.  Second, not sure what your concern is exactly.  I use Logos all the time for reading.  I don't notice battery drainage using it.  Battery is drained more by how many apps I have using location services or other things running "when app are not in use." I'm just weighing in because I am not sure that that many people will have the 128 GB AND read logos forums.  I wonder how many have the 64 GB, as well.

Are there particular uses or variations you are thinking of?

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

It is not recommended to download large portions of your library, and with an iPhone, presumably you would nearly always have the ability to access online or download the resources you need at any given moment.

Battery drain question arises from horrible experience my wife had with iPhone battery charge longevity, don't remember if iPhone 4 or 5. And I suppose for question really doesn't matter if usrr has 32, 64, or 128gb built in storage. I am considering 128gb so I specified that, suspecting a lot of users of the Logos iPhone app would want the larger volume edition.

I told myself a few years ago I would never buy an Apple phone or tablet again, being a very happy Samsung Android user (mainly the Note line of tablets and phones). But Samsung has declined tremendously in features (low-end crap!) and quality/reliability in the last 2 years or so. ASUS now has my tablet business, but the phone track is undecided. And Apple is an option again.

In that case I don't see any problems you should be concerned about.

I'm with Bama.  I most often use my iPhone for Logos, mostly reading.  Sometimes I use search or passage guide.  I never, never have worried about battery use for that usage.  And I have not downloaded any resources.  Or very few, if I have.  Good luck!

I came to ios from android solely because of battery and got the 64gb 6s plus. In the past I went with replacable battery phones but Samsung ditched that idea and so I was left with a lg g4 on Verizon. Great phone but 5hr max battery life of screen on time with me constantly fiddling with turning off things to conserve the battery. On a 6s plus though I can get ten hours of screen on time before it dies. So I can't replace the battery but even in two years if the battery loses 80% I'm still at 8 hours. Plus I spent the $99 for the 2 year warranty through apple which covers accidents with a $49 deductible and also battery replacement if within 2yrs it loses more than 20% of its capacity.

Other perks is I have found the ios logos app far more developed than the android one (as of 4 months ago). Plus I dont have to turn features off in order to achieve my ten hours. Also, I don't know the right word to use but the apple phone just displays more content on the same screen. Maybe it's a difference between safari and say chrome on Android. It's not just a resolution issue imho.

Will I choose apple next time? Hard to say. I got my 6s plus for free and got my ipad 2 64gb for around $150 new. I don't know if I could stomach paying retail for either. Maybe in two years if t-mobile or other networks have larger and better coverage I'll drop verizon and get say an huawaii ( or however you spell it) phone. They have a 6" one that costs 249 and gets insane battery life. Doest work on Verizon though.

Man I'm getting sidetracked but check into ringplus. They offer free cell and tablet service. Absoluy free. I have a backup gym phone (android htc 816) that gets 2k minutes, 2k data, 2k messages each month absolutely free. Not boasting, just telling you of the good deals out there.

So to answer your r question, yes the 6s plus will get you insane battery life using logos regardless of which memory verizon you choose. The standard 6s does not fare so well.
