    Many comments have mentioned smart actions at night; is there a downside to just turning the phone off? I'm guessing there must be because that would seem to be the easy way to save battery?

    I would turn off at night but I use my phone as one of my many alarm clocks. The one and only thing I miss from my BlackBerry was being able to schedule to have it turn itself on and off (well that and the keyboard, I don't think I will ever like touchscreen).

    System panel is a good app in the play store to monitor what is using resources. i also have it monitoring to help snuff out hoggish apps.

    Is there an app that i can use to turn on and off background syncing? Also,, is anyone familiar with ZDbox? Ive been playing around with ZDbox, GSam Battery Mon Pro, Juice Defender and Go Battery. Does anyone else have Good/Bad experience using these?

    Power Toggles is a great and versatile app. You can place and modify a toggle bar on the homescreen or in the notification pulldown, and one of those toggles is Data Sync. Very responsive dev, and it continues to be free, with no ads.

    Juice defender to me is one of the best. I different care for ZD box. Give juice defender plus a try. Pair it with SD Maid Pro and I think you will be quite impressed.

    I seem to be having a problem with my battery stats. Once I pull it off the charger, it will drain about 10% and then just flatline, no matter how long it is off the charger or how heavy I use it. Anyone else experiencing anything like this?

    I had that problem when going from an ICS rom to an AOKP rom last week. Had to charge to 100%, then leave on the charger for another hour. Then go into recovery and reset my battery stats. Give that a shot, worked for me.

    I'm not running a custom ROM. Staying on stock until I have a for-sure way to get back after a potential flash. So, I can't reset the battery stats either. I did try leaving it on the charger already, to no avail, but I'm honestly beginning to think that this is just about the battery life I can expect?

    those are good numbers in my book. run her down all the way and charge back up and see what she does then. you just got the phone or haven't had it long right?

    It will be a week on Friday. Been gaming a bit and racked up the brightness, at a little under 5o% right now. Going to let it hit bottom and recharge. Thanks for the help.

    with such a large battery, let it drain and charge up a couple times (2-3 times) and that will let the battery "settle in" and you will see better more smooth life.

    Really good link to help with battery performance. You'll need root to manage this, but it made a significant difference in the battery performance of my phone.

    Looks like I cannot either. Odd. I'll see if I can dig something up tomorrow.

    This is from when I was in London for about 7 weeks on business.

    I had my company phone with me so no need to activate this on Vodaphone pay as you go. Used this when I was in the office and in the hotel on Wifi only. This battery took me for another 2 days. The best battery I got while I was there was over 7 days on Wifi only.

    I know this is no 4G test but really loved having my phone with me to get my personal emails, facebook, twitter, and camera. The battery life was great.

    Mine is about the same. I am at 83 percent with 54m1s of screen time and 4h 45m 19s on battery. I used to be able to leave work with 80 percent after smart actions being on during work and also on wifi. My phone does better without juice defender. My X used to be out of battery by 11 or 12 pm so it's definitely a huge improvement but I guess I just got spoiled by how good it was in the beginning.

    Compare to not cutting the screen on at all.

    As you can see there is nothing hogging the resources.

    Then it comes down to network signal and wifi. I've been on 4G since coming off the charger. Try reduce your apps syncing to more spaced out times.

    BradenFontaine - - how did you find out the Widget that was using your cpu while you were sleeping? Where does it tell you which widget it was? I'm not very smart when it comes to understanding all the battery graphs, etc.

    that battery graph with the cpu usage is from System Panel Pro. you can systematically break down which app is using how much CPU.
