    This is crazy compared to my 5S. I'd be at 3 hours on my 5S and it'd be at 40%. Apple did a diagnostic and the battery was normal too

    6 Plus:

    Nevermind! Lol.

    Nice battery life, I'm pretty pleased with my 6 too! Last for me was 5 hours of usage and 10 hours of standby with 13% left.

    That's about what I get with 5S, hope the plus is better.

    I was at the gym and using Pandora the whole time with low signal. That probably had an impact (roughly an hour and a half)

    Uh, I'm not trying to bash on you here or anything but is that really that good? I often see 7-8 hours usage on my almost 2 year old iP5 with mainly safari use. I was hoping battery life would be 10+ hours with just web browsing, like they said.

    Nah dude don't worry about it, I mean, compared to my 5S it's good. This is only my first cycle. Maybe it'll get better. Like I said before, my 5S would be used for 3 hours and be at 40% battery.

    It's what you did in those hours. I mean I could have been reading a static page for 10 hours. Versus someone streaming music for 10 hours. Big difference. But that metric alone won't tell the difference. There's another section in Settings that breaks down app usage.

    Here ya go. I'm still tweaking some setting and messing with iOS8.
    This is after the first full charge, which I did with the battery doctor app.
    Usage was moderate today heavy at times.

    You don't set brightness to 5% do you?
