    Default What's your Screen-On time?

    After a few weeks of ownership, I'm somewhat disappointed with battery life. It's good, but not what I expected from 2600mah (coming from an EVO 4G LTE). I'm getting about 4.5 hours of screen on time on average (screen shots coming soon, been busy lately to let it fully discharge). Power saver CPU switched on (no additional lag, and I seemed to be on my way to 6 hours screen on, but haven't been able to replicate that since. Now it seems to make little difference), no Google Now/sync, Auto brightness, haptic feedback off, using lightflow...

    What's your best Screen-On time result? I've heard of the Octa version breaking six. I don't think I've ever seen a S600 variant get much more than a few minutes over 5 hours. What's disappointing is that the One can break 6 hours too (still going back and forth on which handset to keep).

    Keep in mind, the screen on the One drains less battery than the one on the S4, also the lack of bloatware sucking 1% battery for each app (times about 10-11) is apparent. If you can get 4.5-5 hours of screen time on a single charge, you're grooving.

    Ive got all bloatware disabled, and according to GSAM my app usage is pretty much under control. I swear I was matching that screen on figure last year with my evo, and even the GSIII. Guess my expectations were a little high. I'm still holding out hope that a software update can help in the future

    4.5 hours of screen time sounds awesome. I usually only get 2.5 to 3 hours screen time on a 12 to 14 hour battery usage. I'm ok with this during Monday to Fridays since I'm at work most of the day anyways and my phone isn't used as much but on weekends this is where I wish it could get better.

    4.5 hours of screen time is disappointing???
    Many of us are lucky to get even 3 hrs...The most I have gotten was 4 hrs and that was only once..I don't even know how I did it
    Average for me is 3.25 hrs...I must be doing something wrong if other Octa holders are getting 6
    I constantly listen to music on my phone though, so that could be part of the cause
    I'll go a day without listening to music and test it to see

    I also have haptic feedback on, Power Saving mode off...I NEED haptic feedback, but Ill try power saving mode and see how long I can get

    HI guys, I just wanted to share my screen times with you. I got these results with lowest brightness, using wifi, data off, blue tooth off and all the other cool features off as well.

    Are these decent battery times?
    I must add that I started using the screen non-stop when the battery level was at 95%

    I only get 3 hours screen time. None of them screen features on no GPS. Battery stinks.

    Default Re: What's your Screen-On time?

    Brightness : 100% whole time
    Wifi : Turned ON Majority of the time
    Location : ON When needed
    Accounts : FB , twitter , Samsung , Facebook enabled Apps for Sync , Whatsapp , GMail.
    Haptic Feedback Enabled/No Battery Savers Enabled/Google Now enabled/Photo auto-upload disabled/Bluetooth sometimes ON

    (I took screenshot at 5% because 100% brightness can't be enabled once it reaches 5%)

    I can extend battery life for one more hour If I change my wallpaper to a darker color (AMOLED screen) instead of brighter one + Putting brightness at 80%

    On medium brightness/Auto brightness , I get around 6 hours on-screen time very easily.

    yes , this is Exynos Version.

    Not bad , they are decent but at lowest brightness ? That's somewhat disappointing because I got 4h screen time with 100% brightness whole time (i.e slider to the right) and I think your phone is a victim of wakelocks.

    Once run wakelock detector app and post stats , You can sort it out.

    Did you enable any battery saver app ? If no , then no need to worry otherwise ask for battery replacement.

    Charging time on One is f****** slow , it takes too long (because HTC unsurprisingly disabled fast charge mechanism).Samsung phones charge so fast , its so useful.

    I prefer to have my battery charged from 0% to 95% in 90 minutes rather than waiting 150-180 minutes to charge.Yes , you can use fast charger (non-HTC charger) but it will mess with battery longevity on One and it has non-removable battery.

    if you use black themes in apps and change to darker wallpapers , it will drain lot less.

    I am not following any strict guidelines regarding wallpapers/themes because battery life what I am getting currently is decent and phone gets charged so fast if battery is necessary.

    Here are results for my normal usage :
    Wifi : Around 6-8 hours turned ON
    Brightness : Random (sometimes full , sometimes low , sometimes medium but mostly low-to-medium brightness)
    Location : when needed

    Remaining all same pretty much (as in previous comment) :
