    This is what makes me excited to get the Pixel 2. On my current phone (Droid Turbo 2) I'll use it in the morning for ~20 minutes and I'm usually down to 92% before leaving the house. Usually below 90% when I get to my office chair. This battery just doesn't last anymore.
    Yep, the fatigued battery in my Droid Turbo 1 was behaving similarly to what you're seeing with your Turbo 2, which had me wanting a new phone. The $300 discount at Verizon (now also at Best Buy) finally prompted me to go for the 2 XL.

    Those of you with disappointing battery life--try turning down your screen brightness. I think running mine at 20% has a lot to do with my excellent results. Squeeze the sides of your phone and tell Google Assistant, "set screen brightness to 20%." If that isn't bright enough for you, adjust it upward by 5% steps until you find your sweet spot.

    Pixel 2, auto brightness set, 60 percent left, 2.5 hours screen time, 15 1/2 hours since full charge.

    Is this good bad or average?
    On a scale comprised of poor, fair, good, very good, excellent, I would say that is very good. You should easily get 5 hours screen time.
