    Do you tend to play games a lot? How long since you bought it? We need more info than that I'm afraid.

    Battery life is on par with IOS 7. I have all background off and system location services disabled. I use maps a lot and find that drains the battery more than anything else.

    I bought it over an year ago right after it was introduced. Cheap Android phones are giving better battery life what gives?

    I haven't noticed much change in battery life since updating.

    As others have said, the battery life will vary a lot depending on what you do on your phone. I have a couple of games that will drain the battery in 2 1/2 hours. Yet, I can also get 10 hours using other local apps and switching the cellular radio off.
