    Pretty good. It will probably get a little better after the battery settles in.

    yes, the battery life does improve somewhat with use.

    It also gets better as we learn what consumes it the most and get rid of the bloatware (anything not needed)

    This screenshot shows my S5 taking a nice easy nap while I was watching TV mostly and using it lightly.

    Not too shabby at holding 100% for 2-1/2 hours, eh?

    When I first pre-ordered my S5, I almost ordered a spare battery and a charging station for it.

    I had such a setup with my previous Galaxy S which needed to be recharged 3 times a day with the way I used it. Long conversations with a BT headset. Two truckers who need to keep their eyes awake tend to talk and talk and talk for hundreds of miles

    Now, being semi-retired, life has a gentler pace and so does my favorite phone, the S5.

    I didn't take a screen shot but last night when I put my phone on charge, I was at 1 day, 17 hours and 10 or 11% battery life left. Usage was almost 4 hours. And that's with everything on...GPS/location, sync, wifi more than half that time, etc. I don't "dumb down" my phone just so I can get 4 or 5 days out of the battery Anyway, that's a typical phone scenario for me so I'm pleased with the battery life

    I got my GS5 a week ago and I am also very pleased with the battery life so far.

    You are the man!!! I think I need to get my eyes checked if I'm seeing what I think I'm seeing on that screen time.

    That has to be a bug. No way he used his phone for 18 hours on one charge.

    Give it a few weeks and the battery will die faster. This is my second month on the s5 and battery lasts about 13hours with avg 3 hour screen time....

    Today was another doctor visit day for the wife's cataract follow up.... I was relegated to the waiting room and looking for something to do.

    So, I called up my trucker buddy and we yammered on much about nothing for a few hundred miles. While doing that, I cruised the news on the local TV stations and found an article about our daughter had saved a man when an adjacent apartment to his, caught fire.

    http://www.newson6.com/story/2583282...nt-during-fire


    Nice to get her 15 minutes of fame. They gave her a Thank You card, a box of chocolates, and a $50 gift certificate to Chili's Restaurant. All well appreciated by her, and us.

    All that just to say that I used the phone a bunch today and the battery is still doing good.... it is early, but 5 hrs plus and 83% still left to go.

    Everything is turned ON, a screenshot for the battery and the ON stuff.

    Love the S5, it works like a desktop PC and so smooth..... (now that I know my way around it)

    No, I'm saying it because it's practically impossible. Not even tablets get battery life like that 😜

    Definitely love the battery on my S5 and after rooting the phone and getting rid it of bloatware I'm averaging 24 hours plus. I just laugh at my iPhone friends

    Not much of a widget user. I have the default weather/time widget and A Sticky Note.
