    After reading all the rave reviews about the battery, I was expecting more - I took my 6 Plus off charge this morning at 6:15, 100%. I did a few minor things (checked email, Facebook, etc) between 6:30 and 6:45. By 9am it had lost 8% charge.

    Yesterday it was down to 38% by 1:30pm, again from 100% at 6:15am, although admittedly I had it unlocked and screen on a fair bit.

    I had previously restored from my 5S backup (which in turn was restored months ago from my iPhone 5 backup) so today I've bitten the bullet, restored my 6 Plus and set it up as a new phone to see if that helps.

    Anyone else not as impressed by the battery life as they expected?

    You sure you have a plus? I got bad battery life so tried. Fresh instal. Middle brightness. No auto brightness and location on all day. Bluetooth earbuds at the gym for two hrs today and still can't get this thing to drain much.

    I'm at 20 % with 8 hrs 50 minutes usage. And 19 hrs 40 minutes standby. Took it off the charger last night prior.
