    First off, I love the phone and I have read great things about the battery life but so far I haven't had the most consistent results. I haven't had an android for awhile so I was just looking for some help to see if it is me or the phone or some combination.

    I don't have any crazy apps, no widgets running. Location off, bluetooth off, and I work in a school which gets no reception so I have airplane mode on most of my day and just use wifi.
    This was my second day at work and unfortunately I did not get a screen shot of the 'screen time', the first day's battery was similar but I did not screen shot that either. I mostly use the phone to briefly check email and browse the web.

    So I went home and did some research and disabled a bunch of bloatware apps. I changed 'Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep' to 'only when plugged in' and unchecked 'Always allow local scanning.' This was a big improvement from the previous day.

    So, any help is greatly appreciated. I am still within my grace period to return and exchange it, hopefully that is not necessary. Thanks ahead of time for your help.

    Same exact thing happened to me and I can't figure out why either :/

    Let me know if you come up with a fix, or if you try an exchange. I really want the battery life I am seeing posted around by everyone.
