As the Title says, Fellow Men.. Please let me know how do you find the battery life on your iPhone 8.

I had a 7 and it would last till 2pm since 7 am full-charge.. horrendous

The battery you had in the 7 might not have been good. Usage and/or other factors could have been affecting battery life with the 7 as well.

I recently switch from a 7 to a 8. At the end of the day I was below 20% on the 7 (Battery health at 85%). My 8 I am above 50% at the end of the day.

Light user, but I do run the gps for 1.5hrs every day.

Switched from a 7 to an 8, 8 battery is much better, i could go a full day and not have to charge, the 7 had to be charged daily even when new

At the same time that's likely at last somewhat if not largely due to the 8 being a new phone with a new battery while the 7 was already had at least a somewhat used/worn battery.

What does this mean? 7hours of use? That’s reasonable

Can’t u post your screen on time? Or battery usage screenshot and health

Check battery health on your phone. What % does it list? I ask because Apple will put in a new battery until the end of the year for $29. Before you go buying a new phone check your battery health percentage in ios settings.
