    I'm just trying to get an idea of how my battery usage compares to other 8 Plus users...just out of interest really.

    I started with 100% charge and put it back on charge at 20%, this is what I got (iOS 11.2.6);

    Usage - 8 hours, 22 minutes
    Standby - 42 hours, 35 minutes

    Took my 8 Plus off the wireless charger this morning at 6. Now it’s at 74 percent with 3 hours and 24 minutes of usage. On 11.3 beta 4...seriously battery life is amazing on this thing!

    How do you have 9.0.2 on an 8 Plus? It shipped with iOS 11. Downgrades aren’t possible. You must be using a 6S Plus.

    Do you mean it's amazing on the 8 Plus or Beta 4 (specifically)?

    The 8 Plus has amazing battery life, on a 10hr day with about 3hr SOT, without bluetooth, with decent cell reception, I manage to get home with about 60% battery life left. This pales in comparison to when I first had my iPhone 4 where it would leave me with about 19% left by the time I was done my 8hr work day.

    The 8 has OK battery life, not great. On the smaller 8, with poor cell service, bluetooth off, I'll get home with 83% left, with roughly 30 minute SOT. A heavy user will be disappointed with the smaller 8's battery life and most likely won't last a full working day.

    My usage drops to just over 5 hours when on 4G (in a strong signal area). It's amazing how much less power WiFi uses.

    In general I'm very happy with my iPhone 8 (not plus) battery life. The only time I've really needed to do a mid-day charge was recently on vacation with heavy picture and video taking usage.

    Today is a little unusual in the opposite direction since I'm WFH, which changes my usage profile a lot without a commute.

    Current status: 77%
    Usage: 1hr, 56 min
    Standby: 9 hr

    11.2.6

    None of this information is useful. There's so many different ways of using the phone that impacts the battery differently. Using a phone /apps one way can trash the battery before happy hour yet use the phone & different apps differently and the same phone & batt could squeeze out 2 days.
