    Iam just curious about this.
    Bought my 6plus at the start of january. Never updated iOS Till then. Used iOS 8.1... And reached 10-11hours of usage / 2days standby with 10% battery left. For now this usage time is reduced by about 2-3hours. I only reach about 8 hours till my phone is about to power off.

    I dont have changed my apps nor the intensity of using my apps. So there isnt really anything 'new' that could drain my battery.

    Would be strange if my battery would already be that low after 4 month of use..

    I just want an explanation for this, maybe some1 could help me out :)

    Have you ever calibrated the battery meter since you got it? As in drained the battery until the phone turns off on its own after going down to 1%, and then charging it all the way back up to 100% (full charge)?

    I do this once every couple of months, I find it really helps.

    Battery power

    Either check in the usage option so that you can know which app is sucking your battery, dim the brightness or buy a power bank.
