    Default My LG G3 Battery Doesn't Last All Day.

    Example - I woke up today, got ready, unplugged my phone and left my house at 7:30 am. I spent the day at the hospital visiting a family member and by 3:30 pm, my battery was at 27%. Granted I was on it fairly often using Facebook and Internet surfing, but if I waited until 6:30 pm to charge my G3, it would be dead. So. I need a better, more powerful power source, and this is where I was hoping you guys could advise me.

    Ultimately I'd like to have an extended life battery with at least 3,800mAh and isn't made using Chinese subpar standards. I want a good battery, even if it costs more. But, I have searched eBay and Amazon and have come up empty-handed. I don't want to buy a Mophie power pack, however I'd buy a Mophie case but, they don't make one. If a Mophie power pack is the only solution, so be it.

    So that's my dilemma. Advice, links, feedback based of experience, would all be appreciated. Thanks.

    It does mention the G3, BUT you'll have to wait for a bit.

    9,000mAh? Holy crap. I like the idea of having a bucket of mAh's, but that's gonna turn a sleek phone into a cinder block. Oh well, we'll see upon release. Thanks for the update.

    Huh I must have missed it. Darth Spock is touting a release date of 8/30. I suppose I can wait.

    Can't really tell thickness, but this is apparently what it looks like:

    Yeah, no thanks. I just went from a Spigen Ultra Hybrid to a Spigen Ultra Fit because I wanted a thinner profile... similar to my G2 with a Peotic Feather.

    I prefer a battery that is in stock dimension... but not holding my breath because I don't really see any offerings for the Galaxy S5 and you'd think a huge seller like that there would already be one over the G3.

    What is your brightness set to, OP?

    Another reason could be the hospital. Hospitals are notoriously bad for signal reception. If your phone had trouble keeping a signal it will drain the battery faster.

    You should download an app to see what is draining the battery.

    My battery last around 17h with 6h screen on.

    Try to look at your syncing apps like fb, email etc. I always set fb to Manuel since it's senseless to let it sync when I'm not on it and I still get my messages from the chat.

    You could also try to run the phone on ART instead of dalvik.

    Xocomoax - I'm set to auto brightness.

    Areyes - I have full 4G service. Literally as perfect as it can get.

    Mackie - ART froze my phone immediately. Any suggestions on what app to download to see what could be drawing?

    I looked at the apps draining my battery through the system and my screen was the #1 culprit, on at about 22%. Makes sense because I was on Facebook and the net quite a bit. No specific application I wasn't using showed up on my drain list.

    This could be a potential problem. Some devices do this well while most are constantly second guessing their position. I don't know if the G3 does well on auto-brightness, but it is a common drain on the G2.

    Would you suggest taking it off auto and just moving it to something like 10%?

    I'm on 40% and if I'm outside in the sun I just use the auto option.

    40% gets me enough juice for a day on heavy use.

    Btw if you are a lot on the internet (browsing) than it will drain as well duo to the high resolution screen.

    10% brightness is fearful dim but if you could live with it....
    Your 22% battery usage by the screen sounds low to me....I usually have my brightness at 30% indoors, auto setting off. Battery usage in my case would be much more than 22%....say double.
    Perhaps something else is eating your battery.

    Same for me. I find 40% an excellent compromise.

    Just saying you have auto brightness on isn't exactly enough. What % is it set to?

    I am not a big fan of making my phone bigger than it needs to be. I also think cases have come a long way over the years. I remember having to use an Otterbox on my Blackberry 7250. I thought that was big. Now cases offer ample protection without the girth.
    The battery life was better than expected for me. I am a heavy user, as I use mine for streaming music at the gym, business, and personal use. The battery lasts around 30% longer than my Note 3 did. However, it still doesn't make it through the day. So, these are what I have been using.

    With data toggling, I Can get by withought these cases, but living in a low signal area makes it more difficult. I like my morphine case as I can leave everything on full bore all day. Sometimes, the bulk isn't worth it, and I just bump charge when I can and toggle data when I don't need it.

    Default LG G3 Battery life

    Well coming from the Droid maxx and the Droid RAZR maxx I have had a good experience with amazing batteries.... This is the best I have gotten from this phone. Anyone else extended it this far?

    Google play services was killing my battery. Started doing it one day out if the blue. Can't remember what I did to fix it...cleared cache for sure. Other things that have helped my battery life tremendously were changing location settings, turning off Google now, and reducing brightness.
