    Default G3 Battery Life experience. Whats yours?

    Was a loyal samsung user and always had a problem w batt life. Switched to HTC M8 and had excellent battery life. It would last me the whole day and more.

    My first half day with G3 and the rate it is consuming batt seems like i am back to the samsung days. I was hoping for better battery life considering G2 was excellent batt life from reviews. Display is set at 25% and ive turned off location and all other usual tips and tricks.

    Im hoping batt life improves after a few cycles. Care to share your battery experiences?

    If it reassures you at all the battery life on my Lumia 1020 seemed so bad at first that I thought I might have a duff battery. After a few days however all was well. I know this is not G3, but I think that apparent battery problems in the first few days of a new phone are a common experience.

    That's less than my G2 loses in the same time, so it's probably OK.

    I see the G2 getting more screen on time because mostly because the G3 has to work with a higher resolution and overall bigger display.

    What do you use for screen on time figures? Ive notice gsam giving phantom screen usage. I did not useit for a full hour and there were minutes added on to it. Which might give others to think they have long screen times. The stock battery app gave me accurate readings for screen usage. Im seeing higher android system % too. Higher than the screen time. It doesnt seem right.

    Seems a bit high, but early days perhaps? Overnight my Lumia 1020 and Nexus 5 normally lose no more than about 5% and often less than. Like you I've got various things switched off.

    On the basis of my current usage patterns, I would not be comfortable with merely half the screen time that I currently get on my G Flex. In comparison it cannot be underestimated just how much I want to know more about the rumored Flex 2.

    On the plus side, 8 hoursof standby time while i was asleep and it only consumed 2%. Its the actual usage o have to figure outhm how to lower consumption

    2% loss overnight is good. Usage is usage, but don't you get a spare battery with the G3 which would help in that respect?

    Dropping back to 10 to 11 hours total usage with 3 hours screen time. Really weird and frustrating. Any one else care to share?

    That's an excellent time to drain ratio. My S4 loses 60-70% unplugged overnight.

    This is worrying. I beg your pardon for suggesting it, but is it possible that your methods of measuring might be rather rough-and-ready, and that you are in fact getting much the same battery life now as earlier? Otherwise, it's worrying.

    I just use the battery settings stats. Was bad at first if you are following my thread. It improved after a few cycles. However, it has now gone back to really short battery life. Two things of note, I just started using the circle case and also the wireless charger.

    If your use of case and wireless charging are coincident with reduced battery life it looks like there's a connection...though often life tricks us in these ways. But assume there is. It's unlikely to be the circle case. So it's the w.c. It's hard to believe that w.c. puts a sort of inferior quality of electricity through, but perhaps not impossible to believe that the battery behaves differently when charged this way...has a reduced capacity, say. This is where we need people who actually KNOW what they're talking about and I'm afraid that counts me out. I hope you solve it. Have you tried a normal mains charge to see if it's better?

    I will run a test this week logging all stats each day and trying out circle case, no case, wireless charging, mains charging, etc. Will give regular updates. .

    I hoped it would perform as well as the g2 but I don't think it will. What I do know is that that will outperform my M 7 as far as battery goes
