I've been trialing the above combination and have in general liked the OSMO Mobile, however, the real issue that I have encountered and tested further is the heavy drain on the iPhone battery that I experienced.  For example:
videoing with the DJI GO app (either 4K or 1080p) - 3 mins video drops the battery by ~12% from 100%
videoing with FILMIC Pro (either 4K or 1080p) - 3 mins video drops the battery by ~12% from 100%

whereas videoing with the native Apple camera app (blue tooth connected) - 3 mins ~1-2% battery drop

Also today I was out videoing (admitedly cold ~2degC) and after 5 mins videoing ~15 clips the iPhone shut down completely and only restarted with a battery connected but on restarting showed 40% battery remaining.  This happened repeatedly and the error logs show that it shut down due to low power (@42% 3478mV).

Any ideas why I would be seeing these issues?

Cheers.

There is a product recall/repair for iPhone 6s/6splus which fixes the battery shutdown error.

The cold has nothing to do with the Osmo.  The iPhone hates the cold.  I regularly go hunting with my iphone in a lifeproof case and if I haven't kept it by my side it will report 0% battery suddenly.  Takes a while to warm it up and then gradually the battery will skyrocket.  One thing you could do is get the iphone as warm as possible without making it hot before filming with it.  Also switch it to Airplane mode and enable just bluetooth when using it with the Osmo.  The other thing I do is switch the display to manual and turn it right down.
