I could quite easily achieve that uptime without charging and you could also easily smash the uptime by using UPSM, but whats the point, use the phone as its intended, which means the screen should be on for a long time.
    I didn't use UPSM. Just posting up my battery life to compare with others. According to the internet, max screen on time is a little under 8 hours. So I consider my battery life is above average per say.

    Almost 3.5 hours of screen on time and 50% battery left. At this rate it may be possible to get 6+ hours of screen on time if I ran it down to 0% or near it if I continued to use the phone the way I did today.

    I never said you did. In your last post you showed screen time of just over 5 hours, now its 8 hours? For the record i did 3 days uptime with heavy usage, over 6hrs of screentime PER DAY, using UPSM overnight. I wouldn't say your battery is any better than average to be honest.

    I've never gotten 8 hours of screen time, that's only according to the people that test the phone on the internet as I mentioned.

    You definitely got better battery life than I do if you are going 6 hours of screen time with heavy usage. I would like to see a screenshot if you don't mind.

    Yea I agree. I have the S5 setup just like the N3 and it's nowhere near the life I get on the N3.

    I just posted this in another thread that I started but I figure it might be helpful here. I had an issue with my phone constantly being awake and something trying to use wifi even though wifi was off:

    settings->wifi->advance->uncheck "Always allow scanning"

    This particular setting wasn't the actual issue but rather some app was using that setting to keep my phone awake and constantly hunting for wifi even with wifi turned off. I was looking at about 10-12 hours when I had it checked and 24-30 hours without it checked.

    I'm going roughly 2 days between charges.
    Power Saving Mode (Greyscale most of the time)
    Lama controlling Wifi and Data connections
    Screen brightness at 20% (1% after 9 when home)

    Roughly 2hrs of calls per day w/ texts throughout the day
    ~1hr of internet browsing
    1hr Bluetooth streaming music/calls

    From a low to moderate user, I'm pretty happy with battery life. I think it took me about a week to FULLY set up the phone to get to this stage.

    And yes I know I'm not using the phone to its full potential daily, BUT I do full take advantage of many of it's features Friday thru Sunday, the rest of the week I simply don't need it, so why use it?
