    If you're using tapatalk you can just attach a pic by hitting your menu button on your reply and choose attach picture.

    Rockin my LG G2
    In your room
    Where time stands still
    Or moves at your will
    Will you let the morning come soon
    Or will you leave me lying here?

    Really? This phone has one of the best batteries that I have used, it just kills my iPhone 5 in useage. how do you use it and how many apps are running in the background will affect the life. My LG isai with is the same as the G2 shows 48% and it was last charged 3 days ago.

    I would say that you have a lot of apps running in the background that you do not need.

    your screen is using 28% of the power, what brightness level is it set to? Mine is set to around 28%, the display will use more power than anything else on the phone

    Are you really complaining of 3 hours of screen time? Of course that's going to drain your battery, especially if your brightness is high.

    I don't know if you have a problem honestly. You say 2 hours wouldn't count but 4 hours of on screen time is not bad. It's not stellar but on a good day you would get 5 to 6 I would guess.

    I get around 6-7hrs screen on time. Definitely the best battery life I've had on any phone.
    If your battery life is underwhelming, try installing wakelock detector. Let it run throughout one of your days (off charger) and it'll tell you if any apps are keeping your display awake or your cpu awake.
    Cpu wakelock is a killer of many batteries because rogue applications will keep the Cpu awake when it should be sleeping.

    Edit:
    Also some people have issues with battery when they port over their music. Sometimes songs get corrupted and cause the media server to keep trying to scan. I wouldn't think that's the case so with how small the percentage of the battery your media has used but I figure it's worth noting anyway.

    Yes. Google+ is your problem... How in the hell it's keeping the phone awake like that baffles me, but definitely do something about g+. 9hrs is ridiculous.
    Uninstall updates and reinstall them, or just disable it completely if you don't use it. You could always use the mobile Web page too though.

    Yes Google+ is definitely your problem. I wish Google would resolve this. I had an issue were Google+ ate up half of my data allowance in like a half hour. I bet it has to do with auto backing you photos. I would go into the setting for photo auto back up and make sure it is set to only backup when on the charger and only back up when on wifi. That way you still get your photos backed up and it doesn't eat up your data or your battery. Also I went into my data manager and restricted google+ to use background data only on wifi to be sure. Make those changes and you will get the stellar battery life you were hoping for ;-)

    Statistics over two minutes won't give much info. It's much easier to gauge when you leave the phone off the charger for a few hours. Gives the apps time to engage *** mode. Haha
