    Yes I could. Or, apple could fix their buggy new os so I can at least get what I was getting with iOS 7 on my old iPhone 5.

    I had an iPhone 5 that was jailbroken and my 6 absolutely blows it away. You might have a bad Apple.
    Did you restore from a previous backup?

    Coming from an iPhone 5 that had god awful battery life the iPhone 6 has been amazing for me. Instead if charging it 5 times in one day I only need to charge it at night after a FULL day of not having to charge it

    My iPhone is more of a mixed bag, but sadly its unable to match my Pre3 and Lumia 822 in battery life. Even after heavy usage I would end the day on 85%

    I don't care my phone lasts a hella long time regardless LOL.
    A hard reset should fix that. Hold the top power/sleep button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release. If that doesn't work, then try "reset all settings". Go to Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings

    When I say iOS 8 is very buggy, it's not a lie. So many things will suddenly drain the battery unexpectedly.

    Example 1: I used the camera app to take TWO pictures. I pressed the home button and turned off phone. Five minutes later I felt the phone getting real hot in my pocket, I didn't understand at first. Then I checked the battery and boom, 20% of it was utilized by the camera within the 5-10 mins.

    Example 2: yesterday when I was posting the very post on this thread, again, I put my phone down on the table. 10 mins later when I picked it up, it was very hot. Checked battery tab and guess what: safari used 17% in just 10 freaking minutes just to post a message.

    Surely these problems are definite bugs with this crappy iOS 8 which in my opinion is the worst OS apple ever released. I've had so many apps crash as well. Many of them are apps that are preloaded onto the phone - APPLE'S OWN APPS! 8.0.2 or whatever didn't fix much of that. If this is the path apple is headed under its new leader, it doesn't bode well for the future of the brand. Now I can't tell android trolls that my OS is very stable and my apps don't crash cause that's just not true any more.

    It was actually just a system service that was constantly using my location.

    Since the update I've had even better battery life. Really impressed and hope it lasts!
    Before I would be on 20% by this time.

    Two things that I have noticed about the battery life on my 6:

    When I first pull it off of the charger in the morning, it will drain 3-4% on my 10 minute drive to work. Bluetooth on to connect with my Sync system for hands free calling (at 4:00 in the morning, you never know when you will need it). The battery continues to drain while just sitting on my desk. I have turned LTE off due to very weak LTE signal in my office. 4G signal very strong.

    Then once I plug it in to charge to 100%, the battery life is phenomenal. Light use and I'll have 95% when I get home...generally about 6 hours after the full charge.

    Well it says low signal for vibar. Idk what vibar is but signal quality is directly related to battery life.

    I went from the HTC One to the iPhone6 and can't believe how great the battery life is. With the HTC I would be down below 10% after an 8 hour work day. With my iPhone 6 I am still over 40%.....4 hours after leaving work. Love it.

    Did you have your brightness cranked? Those numbers seem low compared to what I have been getting.
    No I even had auto brightness turned off and stopped all of my pushed notifications. My screen is very dim.



    This was better



    Right now

    Did anyone find an improvement in battery life (or anything else) setting their phone up a new vs. using a restore from an old iPhone?

    I generally set up my phone as new. Might be placebo...but I feel like in doing so, I bypass a lot of potential issues that can arise.
