    I think I can push my X1C6 to 7 hours under these conditions. That's while actively using Firefox, even (which is not exactly known for conserving CPU time). Full idle under these conditions is 10 hours.
    Just in case "Under these conditions" include specifically LTE, not WiFi.
    Just in case 15 hours is not idle too (idle is 24 hours). It include activities such as watching a couple of webinars 1.5 hours each via LTE, like I did last time. Try it and see how much battery will left on your X1C6 after that.

    Anyway, 7 hours is still two times less hours for two times more USD (8GB RAM C630 cost 660 USD, 8GB RAM X1C6 cost 1400 USD, prices for on sale models from lenovo.com; it's even if we put aside the fact that there is no LTE version X1C6 on sale on lenovo.com right now, that usually 150-200 USD on top of regular price).

    So where you can push your X1C6 from 7 to 10, I can push my C630 from 15 to 24. So what's your point? x86 battery life is still not even in the same league.

      Sure.

      We both know full well that video playback in web browsers in modern GNU/Linux is all kinds of fucked. Replacing webinars with Youtube via mpv (again via LTE) it'll be 8W avg / 7 hours, again.

      My point was to disprove your claim as stated.
