    Well, a bunch of us will be getting one soon, hopefully by the end of next week. So, don't give up on the idea just yet. Let's see what the group generally experiences. There may be a downloaded app on any particular person's phone that is causing the problem. Even if it is the result of a native app or setting, it may be easy to set it to prevent waking and battery drain.

    So let's see what the whole group, including the people who already have it in this thread, experience and whether we can help find a solution. Too early to tell if there is a battery drain problem or not, but thanks to the early adopters who are posting their experiences here. There should be at least 15 more people posting about it this time next week (depending on shipping). So just hold on a bit longer.

    I'm going to use this for a few more days then I may be looking for a different phone. Battery isn't impressing me so far. I got way better battery life on my old OPO. Another thing that irks me is screen brightness, it isn't very good in direct sunlight and with summer coming, that'll be a pain.

    I see an option there that says "detect battery draining apps." Does that show you any info?

    Also, have either of you tried GSAM battery monitor to see if you can get any more insight?

    I believe that option adds an option to each app in the battery menu to allow that app to wake up or keep it awake.

    Something is draining the battery. What is your screen brightness set to? Do you do a fresh boot every day with 100% battery?

    I have not rebooted the phone and I shouldn't have to. I've seen that other people with this version are also having battery drain issues. There's not a whole lot I can do at this point without root and checking wakelocks.

    Maybe you should not have to but it can help you trouble shoot. If your battery life varies between days after a reboot it could be a app.

    I start turn my phone off after charging to 100% just about every night so start with a fresh boot and seem to have trouble free devices. But if course I do not a ZF2 yet. Should have it next week.

    I'm with bloodrunscold on this. There's actually no obvious wakelock issue for me... I'm not seeing unusual activity during standby. It just looks like overall high power usage. I'm going to keep using it for a few more days, and see if the situation improves.

    Settings->power management->usage table. Better than gsam. Good news...I have no wakelocks. Bad news... this memory/processor combo is a battery hog.

    I just unplugged it from the charger. It's dropped 2% in 5 minutes while catching up on what's been posted here over night. My brightness is turned all the way down since it's still dark. I'll have to monitor what power management days later on today. It does seem like this thing just sucks power once you start using it. I'll reboot but I doubt that'll do anything.

    Definitely sounds like it is not in the Oneplus One battery life area. Updates to the OPO also helped battery life dramatically. Hopefully ASUS is aware or soon will be as the ZF2 launches. Luckily, issues like that can be fixed with updates.

    the problem is that the battery life on the zenfone 5 is very bad... I hope zenfone 2 does better though as I am really interested in the specs

    Well this is interesting. I may try a master reset and see what happens.

    I hope it gets fixed. Just bought this phone, and in Canada its not super cheap either. Battery was kind of my main problem so I hope that its at least better than the nexus 5 because I found it had really poor battery life. On paper this thing should kill the nexus 5 for battery life because of the bigger battery and its powering 720p screen instead of 1080. I know though that doesn't matter sometimes.

    I've got the 4GB 1080p with the z3580 2.3Ghz version. From what I've read, the lower spec version doesn't suffer from the issue.

    That doesn't look good. Contact sync shouldn't be using that much power. It's not showing on mine.

    Oh ok sorry I didn't realize you guys were talking about that version, thanks for letting me know though. At the same time it sucks you are having problems and I hope it gets figured out

    was about to ask if this bad battery drain is only on 4Gb ram version
