    Default Battery Testimonials

    Are the crazy battery numbers on 4G or 3G?


    Trying to decide on this and S3.

    I was curious if anybody is having issues with slightly increased battery drain after charging phone to 100% and then once I power it down and power back up the battery seems to drain like it normally does.

    I have the smart actions set that when my screen times out it shuts all connections down. It still allows calls and text messages. Juice defender also works. I easily get 50+ hours.
    Usually a mix of 3/4g and wifi. I would guess 3g 25%/4g 50%/and 25% wifi.

    Mostly 4G with a little Wi-Fi. 12 of the 17 hours on average are 4G

    This may sound like a dumb question but I am getting this phone this coming Saturday (17 Nov 12) and this is my first dealing with the smart actions and Motorola for that matter. I am coming from the Thunderbolt so could you be specific on what "all connections" you turned off on screen timeout so that you can still get calls and texts?

    Thanks

    No that's a great question actually.

    The smart actions app will allow you to set up several actions. I have triggers that when my screen times out and I am unplugged, it turns off all data connections. Background sync shuts off, brightness is set to smart, gps shuts off and mobil data shuts down.
    All calls and texts still come through. I don't see the point of a bunch of apps running in the background unless I choose them to. Plus 3 days of battery life is awesome. I attached a screenshot. I would guess I was connected 50% wifi, 40% 4g, and 10% 3g.
    I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions, glad to help.

    I must not understand why so many are against charging each night. I would rather leave data on and get a day.

    Why not get 3 days if you can. For me it was the whole reason to buy this phone. Battery life, build quality and screen size. These were the most important things in that order.

    My battery is always still over 70% when I get home from work around 6 PM. That's pretty cool. Having that overkill battery makes you not have to worry about it at all, which is nice.

    I agree with you on the top three things but I just want the battery to guarantee a whole day no matter how I use it. As long as I don't need to find a charger while I'm out it's okay. That's why I charge at night - so I never worry.

    Is anyone running several widgets simultaneously with automatic updates? Has anyone tried to push the boundary on just how much you can use the phone in a single day without a charge

    OMG!!!! I cannot WAIT to get this phone. the HTC DNA, while it has great specs, ruined it with the battery being so small. I work two jobs, so I do not have constant access to a charger all day long. not to mention, 4.7 is the largest screen I ever want to get on a smartphone. anything larger, it's gonna be a tablet. it's gonna be a long 7 months for me.....

    I got mine today and so far I LOVE IT!!!! Getting all of the updates and spending time getting stuff like I like it used some battery. I got the phone and it was around 40% out of the box and I danced around 25-30% all day messing with it I didn't fell nervous that I would run low on battery before I got home. It's a pretty awesome phone!

    Have had mine for about 2-3 weeks now and have been extremely impressed with the battery life. I just don't understand why other companies haven't started focusing on battery life way before. I am able to keep GPS on and use widgets and still get 1d 12hr with 8hrs screen time! My bionic was 10hrs with 2-3hrs screen time.. That was with GPS and a lot of power management.

    I'm totally careless about stuff that will unnecessarily drain the battery, have a bunch of widgets, and various things syncing automatically, and I still always have 60%+ and usually more when I get home from work. It's very nice for times when I have plans after work - I know I'll definitely have plenty of charge left to get in touch with people.

    That is the true beauty of this phone, and what I try to convey to others considering it. You can run all the stuff you want, not have to do all these power management battery saving things, and still get more than a full days use out of it!

    I think people often don't realize just how much having more-than-enough battery power affects the experience of using a phone throughout the day.

    That's exactly right, and the problem is that you can't realize it until you experience it. It's the true essence of freedom.

    My girlfriend's razr maxx hd was on wifi for 12 hours today with moderate use. 87% left. That's a heck of a thing.

    Thats my thing and exactly why I wanted the maxx. I even run auto brightness and generally never have to worry about battery - its a great feeling. Also I travel a lot for work so being away from a charger for 14+ hours is awesome.
