Please, for the love of God and the immortal souls of innocent children don't buy another iPhone. My company forced one on me, it is literately Satan in electro-mechanical form.

Every Android I've had has been a POS. Battery life of 8 hours if I was lucky. On my third iPhone and wouldn't buy another Android if you paid me big money.

Problem is you're grouping all manufacturers into one pot... Android is not a phone it's an operating system. I get a day out of any samsung I've had and the last one (J7) would go 2 days usually unless really using it alot.
With some tweaking (shutting down backround apps mainly) battery draw is minimal. Now an LG i had would drain the battery in half an hr inside a store trying to get a location lock. It would be almost too hot to touch by then, total POS. Another issue with battery drain regardless of manufacturer is cell reception strength and if you're between towers it'll keep switching and battery life goes down I have found.
When looking for a phone the larger the battery the longer the life and some are available with larger addon batteries even. The cheap phone have small batteries and don't last long.

I had two Samsung's both the battery would last tops of 8 hours. I shut down every background app and they would die in 8 hours. My iPhone 11 I use heavily for work and charge every two to three days. I average around 5 hours of screen time a day between calls, text messages and looking things up. I get most of my admin notifications on the phone and do most of the approvals and such from my phone. I log in to office and get my emails and appointments as well.
The battery life is great on the 11, I had about the same results with the iPhoneX as well.

turns out that our wifi is too slow to support the transfer of info from old phone to new phone, so i have to hike down to ATT or Starbucks and use their faster public wifi to finish setting up the new phone. sigh.

that would have been good to know yesterday before I spent 9 hours fussing with that. one call this morning and the nice lady tells me that my wifi is too slow to do this, so go find a faster public connection to finish things. double sigh.

It cost $59.99 including tax at a regular corner phone repair shop to install a brand new, supposedly Apple 6S equivalent battery, yesterday. Iíve not had to charge my iphone 6S for 18 hrs. so far and still going as if back to when it was new in 2015

My ancient LG flip is still on its OE battery and I charge once a week, sometimes longer. I sincerely hope I never need a "smart phone" because from what you people all have to say about the use and care thereof I'd probably use the sumbitch as a rifle target a week or 2 into ownership.
