    under screen it says discharge while on is 3% and while off is 45%
    Im barely using this and it is not making me happy.
    Correct me if im wrong but it says I used the phone for 28:10 and used 27% of batt.. I unplugged at about 8 am and by about 5:00 its alerting me at 14% I love the phone but something is out of whack. Completely turned off wifi today to see if it helped, but no it didnt..
    I switched from sprint with the M7 because of terrible reception but loved the phone...
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Look at your Held Awake time...something is keeping your phone awake and not allowing it to deep sleep when you're not using it. Check your apps.

    Does the Held Awake not ensure that the data connection is kept on and therefore allow you to receive emails, keep streaming apps playing music etc?

    From the Gsam user guide

    [I]Held Awake: This is the amount of time that the phone appears to be sleeping (screen is off), but some application is preventing the phone from going into a deep sleep. This is one of the chief indicators of unneeded battery drain. This is similar to the 'Idle' value in the built-in battery usage, however we don't include the screen on time to help with clarity.
    Battery Saving Tip: Apps should not wake your phone up out of a deep sleep. If the Held Awake time seems high to you, go into the App Sucker task, and sort by 'Time Held Awake', and 'Num Times Waking Device'. This can help you identify a misbehaving app/I]

    I don't think data connection to receive emails would be reflected here, but if you were streaming music during that time then, yes it would be awake by virtue of the running app.

    I have been getting fantastic battery life. This was a little bit slower than normal day, but the fact that I can get almost two days out of it on a slow day means I'm not worried at all about a heavy day of use.

So the phone being on for 7 hours and the screen as well for those 7 hours without ever being plugged in doesn't really add up ....
    Here's your screenshot buddy. 7hrs screen on time. Very good battery life indeed

    Then I stand corrected not bad at all. Lots of wifi definitely helped that.. I thought you meant on mobile all day so that changes my perspective for sure. Which is my fault since I don't have wifi during the day so my mind defaults to mobile only.. My bad.

    No bad intentions meant.. All I asked was for proof on a claim you made .

    Honestly I would have doubted this claim as well. I have the M7 and get half the battery life. Nice to see HTC has made strides in the battery optimization department.

    That 801 doesn't hurt either

    No bad intentions taken! I would have questioned that claim too
