    That's a pretty significant change, I'd consider another exchange.
    I think it's getting better now, today it's having a good day, maybe it was one of those things where it has to go for a few cycles before it gets it together. It's not what i had before, but it's not bad.43% left i'm on my 10th total hour + 40 mins all together, and 3 hours, 8 mins screen time. Phew! I really did not want to have to go through exchange drama. : )

    Got the X yesterday in a trade. Have to say I'm impressed with the battery life. I powered it on and it was at 97%. Set it up downloaded some apps and have been on it a decent amount. I have been on WiFi though for most of the time.

    Anyone know why the AndroidOS is using so much more battery than the screen? It does the same on my X, but I've seen others on here where the screen consumes more.

    Mediaserver has been showing up high on my list. Double the amount of the Android OS over a 15 hour time frame.

    EDIT: On further inspection, it looks like my primary Google account on the phone was doing a lot of syncing I'd prefer it not to do (Google Music, Google+, etc.). I unchecked those and hope that the Mediaserver behaves a little better going forward.

    I checked the LG G2 forum earlier to see what battery life owners were getting. The X with a smaller battery seems to be equal to G2.

    I'm getting around 2% per hour of idle drain overnight. My partial wakelocks seems to be fine but I think my kernel wakelocks are the source of it.

    Anyone know what these "qcom_rx_wakelock" and "main" wakelocks are all about?

    hmmm... i'm on day 1 with my moto x after its first full charge last night. came off the charger at 6:45am, 5 hours later i'm down to 60% battery left with about 30 minutes of on screen time.

    does it take some time for the battery to settle in the first few days?

    You will have to look at what is using the battery. 5 hours off charger and only 30 minutes screen time should not equate to 40% drain in most situations.

    i would post my screen shot, but i don't know how to post a picture.

    android os 33%
    screen 31%
    wifi 10%
    phone idle 5%

    bluetooth on, wifi on, touchless control off.

    i sent back my last phone (z10) cause the battery sucked. i primarily bought this phone because of the battery, and it sucks as well! really not happy right now.

    Power and Volume down at the same time will take a screen shot.


    There are a number of factors that can run down the battery. Have you disabled any of the boatware that came with the phone? Is GPS on? Is "Location Reporting" in Google setttings on or off? Apps that refresh in the background can kill a battery pretty quick if you have enough of them. Under accounts in settings, pull up Google and see what's setup for syncing. Most likely, everything will be so disable what you don't need.

    Download something like SystemPanelLite and see what's running and Wakelock Detector to see what's keeping your phone from sleeping. Once you get these things ironed out, the battery will be a non issue.

    really appreciate your help. i'm a bit lost after using ios for so long.

    i deleted the bloatware. not sure if gps is on, but i would assume so. location reporting is off. i turned off a few google sync settings, but i do use drive, calendar, gmail.

    i downloaded those 2 apps, but i'm not sure how to use them or what to look for.

    i'm using wakelock detector as you recommended now, and it seems like the 3 biggest culprits are skype (16m56s), microsoft exchnage (6m17s) and facebook (3m46s). i'm not sure what any of this stuff means. these apps are closed and i turned off all notifications that i know of for skype and facebook.

    does this look like an issue?

    First day, so far I'm just shy of 9 hours off charger, just under 3 hours screen on and at 50%. This. Is. Amazing.

    hmm, weird. i have been having below average battery performance compared to most of you. i've been fiddling around with settings the past few days and at the moment things have stabilized a bit. after about an hour off the charger and 10 minutes of screen time, i was down to 98%. then about an hour later, i checked my battery and it was back to 100%. weird.

    I just sold my One.... I was getting the worst battery life ever .. after charing it all night I would loose about 10% in the first hour of light use.

    On Friday I picked up the Moto X and I'm getting up to 24 hours in a single charge, also it seems to charge faster.

    I am somewhat disappointed by my battery life, yesterday down to 18% with 2.5 hrs screen time, wifi on and bluetooth on
    Today as of now 3.5 hours - 78%
    Screen time on 38m at less than 50% brightness-43%
    Chrome -15%
    Android OS 11 %
    Phone Idle- 6%
    Wifi- 6%
    Andorid system- 4%
    Voice calls - 4%
    Cell standby- 4%
    Bluetooth- 4%
    I have turned wifi off, also the only items syncing in Google are App data, Contacts and G mail, also have GPS turned off, does this get better or is this phone battery defective ?
    Also yesterday after 20 minutes of internet the phone was hot ( screen time on ) Should I exchange as I am still within the 14 day window?

    those with poor battery... are you guys using microsoft exchange for your emails and calendar? i deleted my corporate exchange account in setting and instead started routing everything through the gmail app and it seems like the difference in battery is night and day.
