    In my battery usage Home & Lock Screen is always #1 for me. Why is that?

    Yeah I've noticed the same. I am not sure what it is...but I am guessing that it is counting push notifications, notification center, today widgets, and the multitasking view. I think it is just the coverall for system tasks, but that is just my guess.

    I am more wondering why they called it "Home & Lockscreen" and not "System" or something along those lines.

    Make sure to turn off the Parallax effect.... if it's on...your phone is utilizing the motion sensors to adjust the background.....

    Do you spend time moving apps around? Looking at notifications? Stuff like that?

    Safari is always number one for me, followed by home screen.

    Not really, but the notifications usually do light the screen.
    Most of them are Gmail.

    I believe home screen and lock refer to idle status.

    So push notifications, any updates going on, email fetch, etc.

    I notice mine is pretty high on the list too.

    I guess I just feel like my battery life isn't as good as my iPhone 5 was.
    It doesn't seem alarmingly bad but just not as good.

    That's probably it then. Those count as "lock screen."
