    Any tips on how to conserve more battery life or is this an iOS 8 problem?

    Turn off location services and Background app refresh.

    I do the following to maximize battery life:

    - Background App Refresh: I keep the list as short as possible. Currently have 4 apps with this on.

    - Location Services: I keep the list as short as possible. Currently have 12 apps as "Always" or "While Using".

    - Notifications: I keep the list as short as possible. Currently have 16 apps with notifications. I turn off all diagnostics (Product Improvement) in the System Services.

    - I close apps when not using.

    - Display brightness when I am inside is set at about 30% -- more than bright enough for me to see the screen.

    - Personal Hotspot off until I need it.

    - Mail set to fetch hourly (manual even better, but hourly works well for me).

    Other settings:
    - WiFi is always on.

    - Bluetooth is aways on as I am in / out of my car during the day.

    Here is how my stats looked after a full day:
