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

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:
