    Default LG G2 Battery life too short

    I recently bought this device and i see people report 8+ hours of screen time while i get hardly 4 hrs. is it normal? ive attached a picture of gsm battery app but it does not look like something specific that causes this.

    48.1% is apps?

    Time to download CleanMaster app and clean things up, then reboot. Also time to see what apps are "Running" and clean those out if you can. Also, keep screen around 50%..that's where I keep things and can go almost 2 day without a charge.

    This screenshot doesn't tell us much actually, but your numbers loom very normal for 22 hours use... 2.6% battery use per hour is very respectable with 3 hours screen time.

    Nothing is holding it awake, obvious from only 1:37 time, your app % is not high for that amount of runtime.

    I think you are fine actually, if you want more details we would need screenshots of the screen, radio, and app sucker screens.

    Yep, I couldn't agree more with ace. 22 hours and you've got 43% battery left #G2Problems. :P

    Many people would kill for 22 hours and 1% left. You are perfectly fine and normal on your battery usage.

    Your usage is normal... There is nothing to worry about.

    The phone has a big battery, its not magic... Your fine.

    Simple. Charge your phone to 100%, leave it sit on a table, come back in three days, turn screen on, take screen shot showing 3 days on battery with 5% battery left.

    The other way is not to charge you phone to 100%, then the battery screen doesn't reset it's "time on battery" number.

    I don't believe anyone who says they get 3 days with 8 hours screen on time without doing something fishy.

    Most people can get about a day with 4-6 hours screen on time.

    Airplane mode and screen brightness <10%... Seriously, if you disable all radios and turn down screen brightness down it will run a phenomenal length of time.

    If you are disabling all radios, why even have a phone?

    I'm not... read my quote, you asked HOW people are getting such phenomenal battery life, this is often how it is done, to show just how good the phone is or how good/lucky the poster is. People who do this are pretty much wasting their phones, it's like owning an Alienware laptop and doing nothing but playing Minesweeper.

    Personally I get anywhere from 2-4 hours of screen time in a day with all radios active, and have anywhere from 25%-60% remaining at the end of the day, and I have never had to charge it during the day unless I for some reason I forget to plug it in overnight (even then it usually makes it through day 2, although barely). I am happy with my G2 as is.
