    Default how fast does your battery run down when your g2 is in use?

    I recently just got my AT&T Lg G2 on Tuesday and read about people's issues with battery and how they fixed it. I went into the settings and with light use I can say I get great battery life. Now depending on what I am doing, when using it sometimes the battery loses a percent within a minute or two. Mostly with games but that's expected. I'm not saying that's a problem but how fast does your battery go? I would like to compare.

    I did a test and at 9:38 PM I was at 62% and at 10:06 PM I am now at 55%. Only played a game for about 3-5 minutes.

    I will also provide a screenshot of the battery manager when my g2 was in light use earlier today.

    I've had a lot of phones but the LG G2 is by far the best battery I've ever came across. Mines holds charge so well.

    I see that myself! I watched many reviews on YouTube before purchasing mine and the battery was one of the strong points. I love it

    The standby battery life on any g2 or nexus 5 is unparalleled. There is some amazing Idle action going on or something to get this great battery life. Heavy usage on this phone makes the battery act kind of normal. But if the phone is just resting, it uses next to nothing from the battery.

    Exactly. Every phone should be like this - if it's idle it uses nothing at all. I charge mines every night, and in the morning I unplug it and take it to work. After a few hours it's still in the high 90's

    I'm due an upgrade in Oct and I'm heavily leaning towards a G3. I got my G2 second hand so haven't had the fun of keeping the LG phone in pristine condition

    Nice! I would definitely go for that. I could have got one but at&t new plans wold have charged me arm and a leg lol so I upgraded to the g2 since its cheaper

    Btw here's another question. How long does the battery manager take to update? Mine is still on" collecting battery info". It was working fine yesterday though.

    Thought about the G3, but I honestly don't really see it as an upgrade. The resolution difference will be unnoticeable and the drop in brightness of the G3 screen kills it for me.

    I'm on the Verizon version but this thing sips battery! Whenever you take a look at the battery chart it's always a steady downward slope!

    I just got rid of an HTC One. I would take it off the charger at 100% at 8am and leave for work. The screen would be off, no phone calls, but bluetooth would be on, wifi is on, etc. I'd be at 30% by noon. I got my G2 yesterday. Today under the same conditions, i was at 58% at 10pm, with usage after 7pm. By far the best battery on an android i've ever had. Of course I'll revisit this in a few days, but i'm impressed so far.
