    It doesn't look like you started on full. Did you unplug your device before it reached 100 percent? That may be why you didn't get much screen time on this charge. Of course, there may be other reasons such as apps, sync and the like. How long have you had the M8?

    Not to be crass, but I don't see the problem with your battery life. It looks like you are receiving amazing results. If you can, try recharging your phone every night.

    I usually get about 18 hours on mine with moderate to heavy usage throughout the day with a mediocre 4G signal.

    Yeah, the standby time is great the real indicator that the battery life is great,its the on screen time. Others can get like 5 hrs of on screen time and still getting 14hrs of usage. I just dont know why my phone is like this. I have an old screen shot here

    Do you think that your custom ROM may have something to do with it?

    I have gotten about 7 hours of onscreen time with my M8 before, but all I was doing was watching back to back episodes of Lost on Netflix while connected to my WiFi at home. I was impressed with it, but I really did just play 7 episodes of Lost without messing with other apps and then recharged my phone.

    I agree; the custom ROM may be the source of your battery life issues. iB4STiD and scrosler are both known to make ROMs with great battery life. You may want to try Skyfall/Goldeneye (iB4STiD) or CleanROM (scrosler) out. Of course, this depends on which carrier version your M8 is.

    Yes, it was only Netflix. The phone had been off the charger for about an hour before I started using Netflix, but I barely touched the phone at all before using Netflix. I suspect that Netflix on WiFi without doing anything else on the phone is what allowed me to get that much time out of the battery.
