I have played the TTA app in an iPhone and an iPad.

The app is a great fun and runs very well. The drawback that I am experiencing is on my iPhone 6+: it drains the battery very quickly, making it impossible to have a complete solo session without a recharge. I did not feel the same when running at my iPad Air.

Does anybody else have the same issue?

Same, but pretty much what I expected. Same happens with any game I run that does a lot of "thinking" like the Terra Mystica app.

Yeah it has to do a lot of calculations to figure out what to do. I play with my phone plugged in to the charger (I have a 12 foot cable). If you want to play on a road trip / flight / etc you'll have to bring one of those power bank devices along with you: https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Cell-Phones-Accessories-...

Funny that friends of mine stated that did not have the same issue with Android smartphones...

I thought it was more related to graphics utilization, but probably it is more a combination of both CPU and GPU intensive use.

Been playing on my Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet which is a bit older (still Android 4) and am having no trouble getting several games in on one charge.

Yeah, I mentioned in another thread my Note 5 seems okay, so maybe it really is an Android vs. iOS thing. That's probably a good thing though, meaning it might be a bug/optimization issue that can still be addressed with a patch.
