    Default LG G2: Battery life is good but not what it used to be.

    Heavy user but it seems like it's dropping off the first 10% quicker than it did when it was brand new.

    My T-Mobile version too actually. It doesn't seem to drastically affect the overall life for the day but that first 10% seems to vanish.

    I've had mine since October, and a heavy user. I haven't noticed any decline in my battery. My phone is constantly on, heavy use of Facebook, Twitter, email and internet use is high. I stream a lot of videos. I can usually get about 3 days use before I hit 30%'. I've noticed after about 3.5 hours of use, I hit about the 90% level. I stay mostly on mobile data, and stay in an average 4G coverage area. I usually have to charge about every 3 days. I charged my phone last on Tuesday morning, and still showing 80% now.

    I am a pretty heavy user and have to charge at the 27 hour mark at most. Generally I have approx 20%-25% life left at that point. I know I could not make the 48 hour mark let alone 72 hours.....what's your secret? I rarely Facebook on the device and I do not tweet....

    Not sure what it is. Just luck I guess. I haven't done anything special, and not rooted. All I did was when I received the phone, for three days, let the battery completely discharge. Then recharge. I repeated it three days. After that o noticed the extended battery life. Luck of the draw I'm guessing.

    With the latest update for the G2 battery life seems to have improved. I didn't think it could get any better but I was wrong. I am already past 30 hours with over 56% life left. Simply amazing.....

    I'm sending about 200 texts a day lately...I'm assuming that's killing my battery.

    I've noticed that as well. That it's still good, but certainly not what is was the first month I had it.

    The secret is exaggeration.

    Heavy users should not expect to get crazy battery life (>30 hrs). After rooting and removing bloat and disabling carrier IQ, I get around 28-30 hrs (screen on 8-10 hrs) with heavy use. I have been able to get >40 hrs with moderate use. Those that claim to get 72 hrs must have very low daily screen on time.

    I don't have exact stats, but when I first got my G2, the battery would stay at 100% for up to 4 hours after unplugging - with the screen on quite a bit. I happily surprised by this. End of the work day it would be 50-60%, and end of the day it might get to 30%.

    But, about a month ago that has changed. It doesn't stay at 100% for very long, even if I don't turn it on. I'm lucky if I'm at 40% at the end of the work day, and it is frequently in the single digits by the end of the day.

    Of course, I release it may be due to certain apps or I might be using it differently, but I don't think that is it. But the significant difference has been quite startling to me. I'm still happy enough with the battery life as it still can get me through a whole day...but I am starting to get worried what the battery life will be like in 3-6 months.

    Funny I just found this thread because I am having the exact same issue with my LG G2.

    When I first got it back in November I could easily go 2 days without charging and now I have to charge pretty much every night. As people have already mentioned, the battery is dropping at a faster rate than when it was brand new. Kind of disappointing since the phone is still so new. In my experience with past phones, usually after 10 month to 1 year than I would see a drop in the battery life.

    I uninstalled some apps, looking for apps that I suspected could be an issue - especially that may have been installed or updated In the past month. So far, battery life had been noticeably better and easily got me through a normal day (though I'm still not sure if it's a as good as when the phone was new).

    I'm planning on adding back apps one at a time to see if I can fund the culprit. But LG is off the hook (for now).

    Got mine in December and the battery was amazing. I'd go a whole day and have around 50-60% left for the next day without charging while using LTE pretty heavy. Not to mention i left my sync functions for email and other apps on! But a few days ago the battery suddenly began to overheat and the battery started draining ridiculously fast, like 10% in around 10-15 minutes of use on the LTE. I erased all the the possible offending app and disabled all syncing, but sadly to no avail. Since the first incident, I have taken about 15-25 screenshots showing the comparison over time of numerous depleting battery levels (can't post because phone is charging)....today, is march 4, and I DID NOT MAKE A FULL DAY! Of charger at 6:50 a.m. and DEAD by 7:45 p.m!!! Going to big red in the morning with the pictures to prove it....also, camera is terrible in low light. Image on screen looks like the phone is drunk and images super blurry on almost every setting.
