    So after a few weeks, I've found that I pretty much always average 9:30 to 10:15. I also have noticed that from 100 to 90% I can get 1:30 to 2 hours, yet from 40 to 30 it's usually just 30 minutes to one hour. I guess the battery or meter is not calibrated correctly or something
    Same as me. Is your battery jumping from 61% to 59% and from 55% to 53%?

    Seems like a few are experiencing this issue. It's definitely a iOS 8 issue. Fingers crossed it's fixed Monday when iOS 8.1 is released.

    Hmm, this evening I went from 100% to 90% in 2 hours, 90% to 80% in 45 minutes , and 80 to 70 in only 30 minutes !.....Doing the same types of tasks. I had recalibrated my battery a couple days ago full cycle, so it's not that. Very strange. Update : by the time I got down to 20%, I was just over 7 hours usage. So, from awesome to start to below average lol. No change in the usage either really

    I am still experimenting with my iPhone 6 Plus but find the descriptions of its battery life to be filled with hyperbole. In my view, it is good but not extraordinary. Today I started using my iPhone 6 Plus at 5:33 AM with 100% battery (Usage: 0 Minutes, Standby: 0 Minutes) and at 6:32 AM the battery went down to 90% (Usage: 1 Hour, 0 minutes | Standby: 1 Hour, 0 Minutes). During that time I read e-mails and web browsed to read news with Bluetooth on (not connected) and Wi-Fi on (connected). According to Costea Lestoc of The Fuse Joplin one can browse with the iPhone 6 Plus for 9 hours. See: http://thefusejoplin.com/2014/10/iph...t-expectations. It seems that my iPhone 6 Plus is performing as expected, but I still find a 10% drop in battery life for an hour of web browsing to be considerable. Have you had a similar experience?

    What's completely normal. It's not supposed to be very accurate or there would be ppl complaining that there battery dropped blah blah percent after they had it unplug from the charger for 10 minutes.

    If u had a 10% from in one hour u can bet on getting at least 9 hours out of it... That's pretty good. Remember that standby time for iPhone are very good.

    I left mine on charge overnight and it was only at 75%. Not sure yet why it won't fully charge. My battery is already at 28% and it's been off charge since 6:15 am with light use

    12 Hours of Usage within 72 Hours of Standby is phenomenal! I see that you do not use Safari, which seems to be battery hog, and have Bluetooth off. What settings do you use to maximize battery life?

    You should contact Apple Support. They will send you an iOS diagnostics hyperlink to test your iPhone. In my case, the Apple Support person detected that background apps that are part of the iOS Springboard (Home/Lock screen) and WebKit (Safari process) were running out of memory. I reinstalled iOS 8.1 and saw an improvement in battery life. A few days ago, an hour of reading e-mails and web browsing with Bluetooth on (not connected) and Wi-Fi on (connected) resulted in the battery dropping from 100% to 90% --which I found to be considerable. After reinstalling iOS 8.1, the battery only dropped from 100% to 95% after an 1 Hour, 2 Minutes of Usage and Standby and it went down to 90% after 1 Hour, 40 Minutes of Usage and 2 Hours, 28 Minutes of Standby. Still, I am not finding the battery life of my iPhone 6 Plus to be as good as many report.

    It. Is. Awesome.

    I've been using it for about 5 hours straight and I still have just over 50%.
    34% of that has been gaming on Inferno 2.

    According to Scotty Loveless, "it's because push email is keeping the phone from sleeping properly." See The Ultimate Guide to Solving iOS Battery Drain.

    I would not know. But, for reference, the maximum battery life that I have achieved on my iPhone 6 Plus has been approximately 10 hours of Usage and 15 hours of Standby --paltry when compared to some of the screenshots posted here.
