    I got my 6+ at 9:15am. I've used it about 70% of the time since then , brightness 75% . Battery was 74% when i opened it it's now at 29% and it's quite warm. No video. Only app downloads, send some pictures and text. Surf Internet. No games. Pretty disappointed so far. I hope it gets better some how

    You are putting more strain on it right now that you probably would under normal usage. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Give it a few DAYS to really know. Even though it has a bigger battery, it has a big screen and lots of pixels to populate and it will take a toll on the battery.

    It's doing spotlight indexing. It'll be fine tomorrow.

    The battery is also new and the system that monitors it isn't calibrated and it came off the line with a partial charge. Give it a few cycles!

    I hear you but from reviews I read I was highly optimistic. I don't know why Apple can't come up with a way to make a great battery. They have 10.9003&49398 billion dollars

    Holy smokes! A battery thread already? Geez.. Let it die and give it a real charge before you freak out.

    Maybe they did and your not listening to some posts on this thread???

    Give it a couple days and charge cycles ... it has to go through all the stuff you synced onto the phone and make quick references to all your data for spotlight ... That means it is working pretty hard right now ... after that is outta the way and you've charged it up ... should be far better under normal usage

    Yes and wait until you get into your normal usage habits. The first day you get the phone is not gonna be an accurate assessment because you're gonna have the phone on a lot more than you probably normally would.

    I don't think you're "hearing" anyone. The phone is still likely indexing which uses a lot of CPU time and thus battery. It also takes a few cycles for the battery indicator to provide an accurate reading.

    Clearly the OP didn't really want to hear what is going on. They just needed a reason to complain.

    Can't wait until they start using graphene for batteries and these battery threads just disappear.

    As others have mentioned, it may take a few charge cycles for the battery to really get into its groove. Also, since the phone is new it's probably doing or has done some processor heavy set up stuff.

    Plus, iOS 8 seems to be a little battery hungry. My iPhone 5 is seeing worse battery life than it has when it was jailbroken.

    That will drain your battery even faster!

    Shouldn't you drain it down the first day and then fully charge it? I've heard yes and no....

    Did you restore your phone from iCloud, as this will drain the battery?

    BTW You can now go into the usage section and see exactly what is draining your battery.

    Just because it lasts for over 2 days normal use doesn't mean you can just browse the internet having wifi and location services on nonstop at full brightness in an area of low cell coverage with bluetooth on and music playing at high volume and expect it to get anywhere close to that.

    iOS does indexing too.

    Doubt it has as much to index...doesn't take the Mac that long to complete in the first place.

    I got my phone at 11 am EST and charged it to 100% while my iCloud backup finished loading. I went to the mall and things with my mom for something to do til my friend gets off work and have probably used my phone more today than normal but since I just got it. So far, in about 4 hours I've inly used about 19% of my battery. I'm quite happy with the results so far.
