    Hello guys! I would like to know if this new feature works well and if there's someone who got his battery life improved thanks to it :)

    iOS 8 is out there since June, I think it's time to sum it up XD

    During beta it came in handy to track down an app that needed to be force closed or it would drain the battery by about 20% in hour.

    I think it works quite well but I really wish apple would include a screen on time measurement like android.

    Yes but Apps haven't updated yet either. Who knows how accurate that information is. Or if there are any bugs in the app, the data may not be accurate either. Give apps time to update themselves and then see where it stands

    Not even sure how well it works for even built-in Apple apps or OS features. For example using the flashlight even for a bit seems to register as a rather large percentage of battery usage, which doesn't seem all that right.

    Mail for me has 11%. That seems absurdly high. WTF is it doing? I don't even have push on right now, only Fetch.

    That's the issue. It's constantly checking for new mail when there is none. It doesn't have to do tis with push.
