    I have 5s 64gb and I downloaded iOS 8 OTA...

    Here is my battery usage...

    34% remaining

    Standby: 15 hours 49 minutes
    Usage: 4 hours 45 minutes

    This is just as good as what I was getting on iOS 7.1.2...

    What battery usage are you all getting?

    Thanks

    5s 16GB.

    All depends on what apps I use as some will consume more. Battery life on ios 8 similar to ios 7.

    Here's what I have right now:

    75% remaining
    Usage: 2 hr 16 mins
    Standby : 7 hrs, 4 mins

    With news about battery drain appearing on front page of Macrumors couple of days ago, I thought this thread would be flooded with battery usage numbers....

    I wonder is the problem as serious as has been made out....

    My Iphone 4s (16gb) gets maybe 4 hours on full charge if i'm lucky. when i use it or if i just have it sitting on the home screen, i've calculated that it decreases by 3% every 1 minute 12 seconds. I hope when i upgrade to the Iphone 6 i see a major improvement.

    I have a 4s, which I use as a 'guinea pig' for testing iOS and trying different apps...

    My 4s is not doing so well with battery life, and on a full charge I will be lucky to get about 4 to 4.5 hours of usage....

    You'll see major improvement for sure. The hardware on your 4S is significantly slower and there is not enough graphical resources in your device to run iOS 8 smoothly.
