    Do you have any automatic updates in the background? You made sure Maps doesn't search right?

    Yeah I have been on Wi-Fi mostly as well. I haven't tweaked any other settings so I don't really have any advice.

    You can check your Sync settings in the Setting menu. Only sync the things you want. For example, in Gmail, I only sync email and contacts. I disabled the rest.

    Then check apps like twitter one by one.

    This thing is nuts! 10 hours off the battery. Browsed the Web for 30 minutes first thing. Went to the gym, came home, showered, then had a 45 minute conference call on the way to the office (was connected to my cars Bluetooth) and have just used it like normal today...maybe very slightly less than normal. I'm on WiFi while at home and at work. Check out the screenshot...10 hours in and I'm at 84%!!!

    That's what I'm saying. My maps had over 1000 wakes before I disabled updating my location. That might have something to do with wakelock. I'll know more tomorrow since I just disabled it tonight.
    I took the same action (and switched from Global to LTE/CDMA). I think that may have done the trick. I'm currently at 7 hours, 32 minuets and have only consumed 25% of my power. Not phenenomal like others have posted, but a heck of a lot better than before and better than on any other phone I have owned. To be honest though this was with using WiFi for a majority of the day. I will try tomorrow with out WiFi.

    You should check the other apps that sync also. For example I use scoremobile for sports and it was syncing every 2 min, I changed it to never. My k9 mail settings for sync were also more often on some accounts I don't need to sync a lot, my error when I set them up, but I noticed k9 was using a lot of battery and went back and found I hadn't changed a couple of sync intervals. I use gsam battery to keep track of battery usage. It's free.

    What do you think of these stats? they seem off in my mind
    10h 26m 47%
    voice calls 72% (4hr 9m)
    screen 14% (1h 16m)
    phone idle 6% (9h 10m)
    android system 3% (13m)
    cell standby 2% (10h 26m)

    NO wifi, NO GPS, and NO bluetooth used at all. Location services disabled as well. In a 4g area 98% of my day. I'm disappointed in this battery life so far.
    boasts 31 hrs of talk...i would get 8 maybe... I almost forgot to mention, on 2 separate occasions (different days) I restarted my phone and BOTH times the battery life dropped 10-11% (Friday went from 32% to 22% on restart and yesterday from 36% to 25%)
    Please let me know your thoughts.
    Thanks!

    4hours of talk time is a lot and you are only at 50% after 10+ hours. I would jump for joy.

    I am not gonna lie, but for some reason I was expecting 40 hours easy haha. But at this rate I still can get about 30. Not bad. Better than the 8-10 I was getting on my s3.

    I'm at 53% after 7 hours. Huge amount of usage. 58% screen usage. Is that bad?

    16% battery remaining
    34 hours 29 minutes on battery
    3 hours 32minutes screen time
    14 hours 34 minutes wifi
    9 minutes voice.
    Also there was an unexpected mass update of all my apps an hour ago -- any idea how I prevent this?
    I am pretty happy

    Oh I already did. The shortest sync interval I have set, for those apps where I can control it, is every 4 hours. For every app out there I have made it as long as possible. The one app I cannot control the sync interval on is Facebook. I may wind up just installing Facebook Contacts Sync and turning off Facebook sync for this reason. Speaking of which, I went through it and found a ton of sync items in FB that were turned on such as location services. So I've disabled them. So tomorrows stats ought to be interesting.

    WOW! Ok so what are your settings? What apps do you have installed? What intervals are their sync settings?


    Don't get me wrong, on any other phone I would have had to recharge by now so I'm happy. However I want to reach the reported life like folks like Dctobin are getting
