    Default Amazed by the battery...

    To start I would post a screenshot, but AC app does not allow it, boo....

    I am amazed by the battery on the M8. Full day of use after unplugging at 8am today, 3:30 of screen on time per GSam, and still at 38% at 11:15pm. My Nexus 4 would have died hours ago.....

    Might just be my favorite thing about the phone.

    from the AC App on my M8

    I agree, battery life is greater than expected and it's about the same as my old evo 4g lte

    The battery life of this phone is so good, I often wonder if it's reading correctly. I unplug mine at 8 am, use it all day long, and around midnight I still have around 40% of my battery. Outstanding.

    Mine too, I really am amazed at the battery life on the M8, I had totally given up on HTC after owning a Vivid a couple of years ago that phone was dead by noon everyday. This phone is just amazing, was worried I was going to have buyers remorse after the Galaxy S5 came out, but after playing with one and realizing it's really not much different than the S3 or S4 I'm happy with my decision on the M8.

    My old One X was always on the charger and if I was out and about, I'd be very lucky to get 6 hours. With the M8, I've never even gotten in the low region. Night comes before the battery gets low.

    Yes!!! Currently on my 17th hour using the phone hard like every other phone and at 35%. Totally unexpected the s5 was garbage.

    i'd like to know how everyone is getting great battery life. I just ripped thru 11% in 55 minutes off a fresh overnight charge. All from just surfing the web on my dolphin browser. Very disappointed so far. Especially knowing i can't just pop in a new battery. Hate being attached to a wall socket.

    Yeah, my battery life is better then my M7, but nowhere near what people are saying in this thread... unless they aren't touching their phones at all?

    Well I turned off gps when I'm not using it, or at least placed it to battery saving mode.

    I also turned off wifi when I'm connected to a mobile network and turned off mobile phone network when I'm connected to wifi. This is done via the quick settings toggles in the notification drawer

    Turned off NFC completely. Brightness set to auto and I run the standard power saving mode. I get almost 8-12 hours of juice with out doing a quick charge. This is with moderate use.

    I'm blown away by the battery life so far, especially compared to the N5 where I was lucky to get 3.5h of screen time (using custom kernel, undervoltage, turning things off) and here's a screenshot of the M8 from last night with Google Now, High Accuracy location and push emails for three accounts. I do use Greenify to hibernate offending apps like Facebook, FB Messenger, Twitter and others. It's also rooted with Xposed Framework+Gravity installed but still running stock ROM and kernel.

    My battery life is reasonable, not amazing but then I can't be bothered to shut anything off when not using it so to be expected.
    It goes very slowly generally when it's asleep but when I start using it I certainly warm it up a little

    No battery saving used (the icon is there because it automatically turns on at 15%). I keep my screen brightness as low as possible and was on Wi-Fi the entire time. I think this is pretty good, and I wasn't even really trying either

    Mine on Verizon tends to drain kind of fast. Maybe it's not calibrated but idk haha. How are people getting that amazing 8 hours of screen D:

    It's not about calibration, it's about optimization. I turn my screen brightness down as low as I can, which is usually at 0 or the 1st level (via quick toggles). I also use Wi-Fi at all possible times and turn sync COMPLETELY off. To me, sync settings tend to be the number one battery killer, besides of course the display. These are just a few things that helped me, there are a ton of other settings to help with battery life. Wi-Fi optimization, power saving mode, and location settings off can also contribute significantly.

    Battery life for me is almost on par with my Note 3, which was nothing short of impressive.

    Yup, it's definitely possible. Here's a screenshot from a couple of days ago. I didn't have power saving mode on, but I have things like sync and location settings turned off.
