    Same restore just now. I used to calibrate my nexus how would you do this to iPhone?
    I've done ALoT of research in this. There's really no way. The battery's tats file on android is proof that android is crap.

    Yep. This is the best battery life I have every gotten on any device. My 5 would last a day with about 5 hour usage so I suppose I am one of the lucky ones.

    Since allowing my 5s battery to drain to 0% and allowing a full charge to 100%, my battery life is noticeably much better. I would say it's better than iOS 8.0.2 at this time. Thanks for the tip iMore members....SMILE

    Wow! That's an iPhone 6? How do you get such good life from it? Mine is a few posts above but no way it'd last over a day.
    What I do is set up my new iPhone as new. I do not set-up from back-up. I tried setting up from back up with my iPhone 6 this time around and got horrible battery life. I then did a restore and set up as new and got great battery life on 8.0.2.

    When 8.1 debut, I upgraded through iTunes. I never upgrade OTA. I would rather get the full update rather than a patch that is added to 8.0.2.

    I also go to privacy>location services>system services and turn off most of the junk that comes turned on on iOS. I leave find my iPhone on though for obvious reasons.

    Finally, I run my battery all the way down to the single digits and recharge to 100 a number of times and then I am good to go.

    Massive change and I have restarted and disabled everything I could. I dont know what is going on with my phone but 8.1 has sucked for my battery life. iPhone 6+ by the way.

    After doing more in depth analysis I think the battery drain has to do with the reactivation of iTunes sync. You have do enable it in iTunes then disable it immediately.
    I don't know why but it seems to fix the drain and heating issue

    Mine has declined too. I forgot to snap a screenshot before I plugged it in. It hasn't been really bad, but before I would get a day and a half of standby with about 7 hours usage and be at around 10%. Now I got one day of standby with 4 hours usage and it was almost completely dead.

    Got 3 days but after that 8 percent pic had another phone call and just let it idle so not really true 3 days but brilliant idle time for me. Just wanted to see if I could make it

    But you only use your phone about 4 hours out of the day. Most people here use theirs more per day. Still good usage though.
