    Just curious what % battery drop do people get after 1 hour of constant moderate use?
    (phone screen always on during the hour)

    Moderate in my case being
    60+ chat messages sent or received (whatsapp/imessage/etc..)
    reading rss feeds
    Safari surfing the web
    a few minutes quick playing of games (clash of clans etc...)

    For me I have most things that people turned off to save battery and i get..

    iPhone 5s/iOS 8.1 15-20% battery drop.

    It could be your battery is aging, at 1 year old, perhaps its starting to show its age.

    During the night it drops 10-15% , while on wifi , bluetooth off.

    This is on 8.0.2 .... And battery drain more than on 7.1.2 , without mentioning the freezing ios8 and resprings.

    I'm thinking that's probably about right. If you are constantly doing things the cpu never has a chance to throttle down and go to a idle mode therefore it will always be using maximum power. That's about the drop I get with my 5 with a new battery. These people who are getting 7 8 or 9 hours of usage are doing things that are keeping their cpu relatively inactive or at a low power mode.
