    yes, it really is quite good. The best my phone has done is over 8 hours of SOT with 10% battery left.

    That is still great battery. Tip. I do have mine set to LTE and below as there is absolutely NO 5G near me.

    Agreed! Battery is awesome on my needs including 5 other family members all on 4a 5Gs. All bought on the same day (bought 5 for myself -me, wife, two boys and mother-in-law and brother-in-law bought 1 for himself)

    No complaints in any way whatsoever !!!

    Weird but today my battery life started draining. Dunno what caused it. The only app I installed was Day One Journal but it isn't showing on the battery stats. Earlier it used over 40% with just over 3 hours screen on time and in 6 hours. This is half of what it was doing yesterday. I doubt I will get a day's battery at this rate let alone what I have been getting. Dunno why this happens to me with every device I own. The battery goes from great to dire with no warning.

    So weird. I will keep an eye on it. Maybe delete Day One Journal and see if that makes a marked difference.

    That battery life reminds me of the moto Z series with the battery mod. Charging.. what's that? lol. Also I'm sorry to hear your battery life took a nosedive, that's one of the big reasons I don't like third party apps, especially free ones, they never seem to be that well developed and bring too many weird problems with them

    I'm constantly being impressed by my Pixel 4a battery life. Notice what time I took this screenshot. I have almost another 12 hours to go. I have location, wifi, wifi calling, NFC, Bluetooth, Sharing, all on, with several hours of work and personal phone calls.

    Yeah, Google finally nailed it with the battery on the 4a series and the P5. That was arguably the biggest weakness on their previous models.

    Yep I always run my phones with everything I might use left on.... I'm not a power user for the most part, and have never had an issue with running out of battery prematurely. But I've had phones that I knew could strand me if I decided to power use for the day, so it's nice to see Google finally covering that problem. It's VERY nice to know you're covered no matter what happens in your day

    I use the small 4A as my daily driver. I work from home and I'm in no way a power user or social media user. I mainly use for calls, text, and emails and the occasionally web / youtube browsing. Mostly I leave the WIFI on and enable bluetooth only when I need to use my Jabra earbuds. Long story short, from full charge at the beginning of the day I end up with above 85% at end of day and I do not charge it at night. Standby time is incredible! I usually wake up with still well over 80%. All this to say I usually can get two days of use out of it. Though since I'm not a power user I could possibly have this same experience on any other device. Haha.

    The only thing that bugs me is...why did the Pixel 5, that has the same size, get a larger battery? I guess they stuck a lower one on the Pixel 4A to keep cost down? I can just imagine how much longer it would last if it had the same battery capacity as the 5.

    In the end, I love this little phone!!!
