Wow... this phone just keeps surprising me. Battery life is incredible!
In an effort to help time pass as I waited for my Moto X to be delivered I decided to read and watch as many Moto X reviews as I could. Review after review, they all said the Moto X was great, but the one thing that stood out to me was that the majority of reviewers only managed to get about 3 hours of screen-on time with most reviewers saying battery life was simply good, decent, moderate, or solid. However, I've noticed the exact opposite.
I'm a heavy user and usually I can kill a good battery within a school day (7am - 7pm, or 9 am -7pm depending on the day) with the iPhone 5s and Galaxy S4, as two examples. With the iPhone I made it till about 3pm before it needed a recharge and with the S4 I made it till around 2pm till I needed a charge. With the Moto X, however, I'm completely blown away. I've used the phone nearly nonstop today and yet I still haven't even plugged it in. GPS, wifi, Google Now, LTE, one exchange email, and one gmail have all been going on all day. Wifi has been spotty at best (college dorm, wifi sucks here) and my cell signal is also not the greatest, so that probably took a toll on the battery. I've sent hundreds of texts, used Facebook, Twitter, Google+ (it's actually not as bad as I thought), and was even on the phone for a bit as well. Through all this, the phone just won't die. This is also unrooted so nothing is frozen, just a few disabled apps.
So, all I can say is battery life is absolutely amazing. And to think this only has a 2200mAh battery. This is rivaling battery life I got with my G2 that has a massive 3000mAh battery. Just look at the screenshots, they speak for themselves (I was able to take one screenshot of the screen-on time 10 seconds before the phone died, the others were taken about 5 minutes or so before it died . Anyone else seeing crazy battery life as well?
