    Impressive. What power saving measures are you taking?

    Just some basic tricks to turn off bluetooth, turn off background refreshing, etc.

    There is an article online describing this. You can adjust with your own need.

    Normal usage with screen brightness around 40%.

    Well, your battery percentage says it's charged to 99% - so it's charged at least one time?

    So you technically changed the time ahead? Nice Photoshop.

    Here is mine on iOS 8.1 (Still buggy IMO)

    Of course after the 10% mark I plugged it in. No need to go 1%.

    I'm surprised and impressed at the numbers here - I rarely get more than 5 or 6 hours. I think it is because I spend a lot of time in weak coverage areas, so my radio is doing a lot more work, but it is frustrating to carry around my powerstation everywhere. (No worse than my 5 was, however.)

    Any idea why standby and usage is the same. Noticed more battery drain as well
    Mine has done this as well the past two days (my first two with the device). Was hoping it's just everything settling in and would work properly soon.

    Love everything about the iP6plus except the following:
    I have had my phone (after waiting 48 days from AT&T) since Friday afternoon. Have not been impressed with battery life. Really no better than my former iP5?
    Why does Home & Lock screen take up so much battery?

    2 days on 1%? Or 25 hours active usage on only 1%? That can't be right.

    That's really strange. How are your settings? Are you using parallax? Background refresh? I think it can also depend on the brightness of the screen. Do you have automatic screen brightness set on or off? I suggest to switch it on... And so on.
    Just tell your settings and try to optimize it maybe it'll help.
    But one question: does your phone heat up?

    Thanks for the quick response.
    Parallax-No
    Background set On- yes, on almost every app. I turned them all Off
    Does phone heat up- sometimes when charging and using GPS
    WILL monitor for the next few days
    Automatic screen brightness-Yes

    Well, it's interesting to see. Maybe the background app refresh was it...
    I don't now, we'll figure it out for sure

    It is just charged one time. I used it for 2 days and charged it and found out there is a SW bug that prevents iOS to clear up the old battery history. That was the time I took the snapshot.

    So the total usage time is 1 day. And it is normal since I listen to music during my work time so that also counts to the usage time but it consumes little battery.

    24 hour usage time on 100%.

    I noticed that you have the Location Service (The small arrow on top right) on when you took the snapshot. You can see that for most of the snapshots that are posted on the website, this arrow is not there.

    The Location Service is battery-hungry thing and I image you have some of those apps that require this service installed but they do not use it properly. (At least when it becomes the background service, they do not turn off the Location Service)

    Try to figure out what service is doing that and kill that service when it is not in use. And you can disable the location service for that app in the settings

    There is a good article about extending the battery life here: 22 Tips to Extend iPhone Battery Life (iOS 8 Updated).

    It may be only improve a bit for those people who already have their battery life to be longer than 12 hours, but it would be helpful for those who has issues.

    The most useful tips in the article in my view: 1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 17, 18
