    Hi guys my first post loll so a newbie

    My Moto G 2nd Gen battery life is soo poor on a average it only lasts 4-6 hours a day. After looking at battery settings it states 30% used in screen :/ so confusing my brightness is always on 20-30( don't like bright screen) it also states 20% in Exchange Services(Email sign)

    P.S it wasn't as bad prior to the Lollipop update.

    Any advise and assistance would be much appreciated.

    Have a lovely day.

    1. How old is it?

    2. How low do you let the battery get before you charge it?

    3. Did you do a factory reset (after backing everything up - see Backing up an Android Device) after the update?

    (Constantly getting the last ounce of power out of the battery can kill it in 6 months. And a lot of Lollipop updates don't "settle down" without a factory reset.)

    Hi Rukbat thanks for the assistants

    1. Its 3/4 months old, fairly new.

    2.it all depends sometimes 5%, 10% on numerous occasions I just stick the charge in even though battery is healthy.

    3. I havent factory reset this device since lollipop update, would you suggest this.

    P.s only couple of times my phone has switched off due to empty battery, usually I get it charged before that.

    I would suggest a reset. This allows the framework of the OS to rebuild. Part of your poor battery life may be conflicting data that the reset would eliminate.
