I have had a decrease in battery life over a day. Can't point to any one specific thing.
End of work day, I'm now down to around 30% these days instead of the 45% I was.
Seeing the same basic loss for my iPad Mini 4 LTE too.

For me, on my 6S+ running the latest 10 beta, battery life is phenomenal. For instance, today. I've been home with fair to good cell coverage, and on wireless all day. I unplugged at 4:30AM, and have been using my phone for emails, some slight texting and playing words with friends. Spent a couple hours total on Facebook. As I type this at 7:00PM, the battery is at 85%.

Now, when at work is a completely different matter. I fly in helicopters during the day, and therefore the signal is always hopping from tower to tower. I use the heck out of my phone at work, it's almost never out of my hand. On top of this, I use it to listen to Sirius to and from work, about a 30 minute drive each way. After a 12 hour shift, it's usually at 30 to 35%. Sometimes less.

Personally, I think this is great! Hope it helps.

How?? Lol. Do you use the actual facebook app or the web version? I find that snapchat and facebook are the biggest battery drainers. No matter how hard I try, I can't get battery life like that.

I use the Facebook app on my iPhone and the web on iPad Pro.
