IPhone 6 battery life - the first full day

Here's mine so far, with 24% left. (I blame getting started on Candy Crush on my wife)

My second cycle wasn't as solid as my first. 9:10 and 16:39 standby. Mostly Safari and some Instagram, App Store, Podcasts. Still, not bad. My first full cycle was over 10 hours.

Home & Lock Screen bug

I noticed my 6 Plus was running warm during casual usage. This is the day after I set it up (iTunes restore) so any data conversion/reindexing should have completed. Battery usage stats were similar to the above, with Home and Lock Screen in around 15%. I rebooted the phone and it stopped running warm and after a day, Home and Lock Screen is around 3%. Getting much better battery life, similar to what's reported in reviews.

So it looks like there's a bug in iOS 8 and the iPhone 6 Plus in some situations. Possibly other devices though I did not notice this on the iPhone 5S.
