    Default Obligatory battery life thread

    Alright, how was everyone's first day? I have a few wakelock issues I need to deal with, but got 6 hours screen on time on day one. This was over 9 hours or so. Excited to see how this thing does once the battery is broken in, and wakelock issue is over.

    So far so good. Right now I am sitting at 10hr 36min off charger and 1hr 24min of on screen time and have 79% battery left. My S3 sure wasnt this good. Not saying its battery life was bad but it wasnt as good either. On it I would be under 75% by now with less standby lol.

    Mine's been worse than I expected. Don't put too much into that statement though because (1) it's only been 1 full charge cycle for me so far (2) I have been wailing on it practically non-stop since I received it Wednesday (3) I'm not much of a power conservation guy - screen cranked up, BT, wi-fi and GPS stay on all the time, etc. In other words, I treat it like I did my iPhone. If the battery life isn't good enough then I'll go swap for a Maxx HD. Officially I got 8 hours out of the first charge then topped off in the afternoon followed by Skype and a movie later that evening.

    Im not quite as far into my day as you are. As is currently sits...
    2hrs 27m off charger
    29 mins screen on
    90%
    Gnex would be about 50% about now.

    Yesterday, I streamed Google music during my drive home (about 45-50 mins) I only lost 3%.

    With nonstop use, screen at full brightness and with bluetooth, GPS and wifi on the whole time 8 hrs is already good. You'll get more mileage when the honeymoon phase is over I guess. I usually get around 10-12 hours on one charge but that's because I can't put down my phone and the screen is basically awake the entire time. At work when I cant fiddle with my phone as much it usually lasts 17hrs which with data and portable hotspot turned on and some music streaming from 8tracks I already consider remarkable.

    Any tips specific to this phone to minimize battery drain? I've turned off the motion features, using wifi at work and have the screen in auto. Not using stand alone gps and making sure apps close. Battery has been decent but not spectacular. I'm at 88% with "normal" usage abiut 5 hrs into the day.

    Turn off S pen detection that may help. Set apps that have the option(like tapatalk) to dark mode. Use black wallpaper.

    coming from the gs3 which was pretty good, this thing rocks, with the nonstop use the battery was great. when things calm down and settle in it will be even better. i'm thinking about getting a folding portable keyboard and leave my tablet at home

    I am at 12h, 44m on battery, 3h, 44m of on screen time with 41% left. This is with all radios on, including 4G, brightness above half. I've rarely put the phone down since I got it.

    Unbelievable battery life for me so far: battery went from 100% to 20% after a little over nine and a half hours of EXTREMELY heavy use; the vast majority of that was on screen time, with large amounts of Internet browsing, tons of texts and emails, and probably an hour and a half of calls. Absolutely incredible. That said, 4G was turned off for much of the time, as was the GPS, with most browsing done via WiFi. Screen brightness was at 75% from start to finish. Extremely pleased overall.

    Right now I am at 41% with 3hrs 23min on screen time and its been off the charger for 18 hours. Theoretically should be able to get 6 hours of screen time before hitting 0 lol.

    I should have taken a screen shot last night before plugging in. But yesterday I Unplugged at 4:00AM and Plugged in at 11:00PM (19 hours) with ~6 hours (it was over 6 I just don't remember the minutes) of screen on time and had 30% battery left.

    I was connected to WiFi for most of the day and my activities included texting, emails, a few phone calls, web browsing, a youtube video or two of how to do something on the Note II, and some other time spent in various apps. No gaming or netflix/hulu/comcast usage yesterday.

    Unplugged yesterday at 6:40am and plugged it back in at 2am with about 8% left.

    That's 19 hours and change. I think I had around 6 hours of screen on time, with about 50/50 wifi/4G.

    Lot of netflix, uTorrent, and radio streaming.

    I just plugged mine in. It was off the charger for 19hrs and 23min. I had 4 hours and 16min of on screen time. WiFi on most of the time. I have my screen brightness set to about 65-75% too. I would definitely say its pretty sweet. I could have made it to at least 5hrs before hitting 0% if not more. Much better than the S3.

    After a couple of days this is more like it. 15 hours off charger with my normal moderate use. Looking very good.

    I"m getting about 5 hours of screen on time by the time it hits 20%, always on LTE (at which time I swap out for a fresh battery from the Samsung spare battery charger). So depending on how much I use the phone, I can go at least 24 hours between charges. Once I settle into a normal usage pattern though (1-2 hours screen on time), it'll most likely be once every 2-3 days. Awesome!

    I had almost 14 hours of use and 4.5 hours of screen time and still had about 20% battery life left. Freaking AWESOME phone. Met beyond my expectations.

    Even with my GN2 sitting idle it uses far less battery life than any other 4G phone I have had in the past including the POS iP5 that I sold after a month. Sure its got a huge battery but also a huge screen. It does quite well.

    On most work days, I work 12 to 14 hours. I generally unplug my phone around 6:00am and do not get home until about 10pm in the evening. With this phone, it usually doesn't run out of charge until about 8:30pm or 9:00pm and that is with regular use through out the use, as well as being in some areas with very little to no signal.

    Yesterday, Sunday, the phone was unplugged for about 13 hours with almost 4 hours of screen time and I was at about 30% when I plugged it in last night. Today, it's been off charge for 14.5 hours, but only about 1 hour and 10 minutes of screen time (busy day at work) and I'm sitting at 72%...

    This "seems" comparable to the iPhone 5 I had previously, which did a good job with battery management.

    I'm very happy to this point.

    I am averaging over 6 hours of screen time and 20 or hours on one charge. This thing is a beast!
