    Default Max vs. min. battery % per hour (how high/low can you go?)

    If you are surfing, watching video at full screen brightness, what percentage of battery/hour might you expect?

    Overnight, how low can you go from a battery percent/hour?

    Thanks!

    That's such a loaded question because everyone sets their phone up different. Me for instance have nothing pushing and all email accounts are set to manual. That would make a big difference compared to someone who has push notifications on for fb and other apps and has their emails constantly popping up when ever they come in. If I forget to put on my dock at night I lose maybe a total of 12 percent. 2 percent a hour sounds about right for me. When I am at gym on a machine, screen full brightness watching a movie,, streaming, in a hour I lose maybe 7 to 10 percent.

    At max brightness on streaming video, probably around 1/3 battery.

    Overnight drain depends. With all the syncs, s-voice set to always listening and 4GLTE running probably 1.5% per hour

    It depends on the color of the Web, if it's full brightness and mostly white, it may go as high as 25%/hr. If it's mostly black, it could be 10% /hr.

    Overnight, with background sync and data off, it can go as low as 0.1 to 0.2%/hr.

    I achieved 0.6%/hour over night.

    With 3 hours of screen time in the last 20 hours, and 40 minutes speaking on the phone, I used 48% of my battery.

    That's pretty good! (Including the overnight, that's an over-all average of 2.8 % / hour. )

    My screen was 40% brightest, and 40% darkest.
