I can only compare to my iPhone 6 which the battery does last 40% longer if not more.

I'm comparing my wife's 5 to my 6+
Charging them full in the evening, in the morning the 5 is down to about 80%, the 6+ is still 100%.
Can't see what's eating that much, there's no listing which apps were using the battery.
Common problem with the iPhones.
Is your 7+ listing which apps are using the power?

There's been much improvements since the 5, the hardware now reduces what is neeeded to run when in standby from what I understand.

Yes it shows the consumption of each app. :)

I am running the iOS 10.1 Beta 3 if I recall from the last update but I think the power consumption details were there before with iOS 10.0

Battery size difference
5 - 1440 mHa
6+ - 2915 mHa

no surprise your battery last longer.. it's got a much larger reserve.
And yes, there is a listing of what is using the battery (at least in the latter IOS)
Settings -> Battery -> Battery Usage (listed at the bottom of the battery page). You can see last 24 hours or last 7 days of history. It even tells you which app is using background activity.

Both phones are on iOS 10, should show the consumption but they don't.
Battery information will be available after using the iPhone for a few minutes.
Seems only a factory reset then an upgrade to iOS 10 would make them show it.
Risky. Even with a good backup little to gain, a lot to lose.

I've never had an issue with doing it. Simply do a full backup, put the phone into DFU mode and plug it in.
In fact, I usually do this at least once a year just for the heck of it. I've also been known to do it when a new version of IOS comes out to get a totally clean install.
