    I see folks posting regarding T-Mobile, but this is the Verizon forum and we don't have the "collect diagnostics" in our Backup and Reset settings (at least mine doesn't).

    You need to go to your own forum. You're giving information that is irrelevant to those of use on Verizon.

    My phone was off the charger at 4:30am and lasted until 9pm; with intermittent airplane mode, streaming data and screen time. I am fine with that.

    I'd suggest looking at these apps for optimizing battery use:

    1. BetterBatteryStats: Look at what percentage of the time that your phone is in deep sleep state (not awake, it should be very high when your phone is idle). Then see what's keeping it awake (using battery when idle) so you can intelligently improve your battery usage.

    2. Greenify: If your phone is rooted or not, you can have apps hibernate instead of running in the background for those apps where that makes sense. If your phone is rooted you can do more, but this app is still very useful if your phone is not rooted. This can save a lot of battery if used intelligently:

    Other apps that can help identify the cause of rapid battery drain are:

    SystemPanel


    Wakelock Detector


    Watchdog Task Manager

    Mine is always dying fast. I carry extra batteries, but when 2 wont get me through an entire day, something is wrong.
    I just purchased a Hyperion 7000 mh battery this morning on ebay. Hopefully it will get me through a day without any worries.

    WOW, I purchased this battery, and got 5 DAYS out of it. IM IMPRESSED.

    My update is about 30+ hours old. No issues yet with my Battery Life... At least nothing that I have yet noticed, and I am one of those weenies that really pays attention to it. I'll repost in a few days after playing with it more but so far, so good. knock knock...
