    Hi there. I just saw people mentioning that they have been on LTE and their battery percentage goes to 60. I have used my phone for 4 hours today, only WiFi , no 3G. NFC , gestures , etc, turned off and I'm down to 20 percent. Does that look unusual?

    That's crazy for me. My battery is crazy amazing. Some days I have to wait to charge until the next afternoon. I am in love with my abbtery on the S5.

    I am just getting used to my new S5, the T-Mobile variant. I am coming from a S2, so I am still learning. my battery life seems ok so far, but working nights limits my FB time, texts and such, so after a 10 hour shift, I am still over 50%. But that's because it sits in my lunch box or on my desk at the moment. Waiting till the weekend to get my case, so my usage is limited.

    Phone lasted 2 days 14 hours on a single charge (I don't do this often and I only fully drain it every 2 months).

    I would also like to point out that I am currently out of the country and to avoid any roaming costs, I have put my phone in airplane mode and only use wi-fi when it's available. When I don't use WI-fi or there is no wi-fi in the area, I just turn it off. At night, when sleeping, it just stays in airplane mode. Even without using UPSM, I only lose 1% overnight, so I find it that I don't ever need to use UPSM.

    I think getting 4 hours of screen on time is average and I can't really complain about that.

    I can't complain, too. But I was preparing myself for an interesting battery power, as the reviews said. But I got depressed when I tried it by my own. I have come from an iPhone and it had a great battery power with heavy use(playing Infinity blade) .

    2-1/2 days working like that isn't too bad. I used to do the same, but I used Lama to help me manage it instead of constantly going through settings. My phone is just shy of 2 weeks, I've gotten it to last 3 days and a couple minutes. But of course I'm not a big social network user so if you're big on FB, Twitter, IG, etc, you'll likely not like doing this.
    On average I get about a day and a half with "normal" more expected use.

    I came from iPhone 5S and I am a heavy user. My iPhone would never make it as long as my S5 does. You have to tweak your settings. Taking OFF auto screen brightness was the best thing I did. I noticed my biggest change there. I manually adjust it but most days it stays around this:

    I have already tweaked my device, the usage is average, tho. My iPhone 5 lasted for about 6 hours playing Infinity blade.

    Not really, light usage. Texting, Facebook, games, few calls..................... So far seems to be doing well.

    I average 1 day 17ish+ hours with around 15-13% battery left when I plug it in at night. Avg screen time is around 4 hours. I would be big time disappointed with that battery life I don't have auto screen checked.
