    this the 1st time i exchange my htc one m8 to a new one because the last one has a loose volume button and I don't like the battery life

    only get 15 hrs of phone use and about 3-4 hours of On screen time with (GPS battery save mode, wifi On all the time, brightness on Auto, and Google account sync) Only played this phone for about 5 days.

    This new HTC one m8 has the same result. Should I settle it more, I mean should i use it a couple of days more to see a good optimise battery?

    Folks gotta give the battery atleast a week before freaking out. Mine took 5 days before it dug it's heels in. And turn off your auto brightness. I keep the slider button between the l and e below the word "level" unless i need more. And always return it to that position when i don't need more.

    Google sync has absolutely killed my battery life before, I would watch out for that one.

    My personal experience with Android devices is to give the battery a few days to settle down. Google Services do their thing initially and cause considerable battery drain. Hope this helps.

    OP, that does seem a little low. Not terrible, but lower than I have experienced, even out of the box. Like the others have said, I'd give it a week and play with, get everything set up correctly, get in a routine, and see what happens.

    The battery life reports from this phone have been stellar, so I hope you get there too.

    It sounds about where my phone was when i first got it. I was envious that others were claiming 24 hours plus, but i gave it a chance. Now i am getting 24 hours plus on moderate to heavy use. Yesterday i really put the hurt to it. Three hours of videotaping and taking pictures at my daughters softball game. Then atleast another hour plus of reviewing said videos and photos. Plus texting, perusing this board as well as others, and hitting youtube to scout NFL rookies to prepare for my FF draft and still had 22% left when i put it on the charger after 20 hours off.

    There is just no way you can expect super battery life by using every feature a cell phone has to offer. That's just the way it is. The only thing i have auto syncing is my weather(every hour). Everything else i do it manually as i need it. I don't use BlinkFeed, Google now, or any of the other stuff right now, but eventually i intend to dabble with it.

    I wouldn't even call it a final try, it should be the first thing anyone does after getting a new Android phone. The minute a new phone is delivered or I pick one up in the store, the first thing I do is a factory data reset.

    In my experience, 48 hours of routine use is pretty easy. Its not like I am bored of the phone already yet either.
    Auto brightness IS THE WAY TO GO.
    But if you have the option, go to Settings, Mobile Data, Network Mode, and select GSM / WCDMA auto instead of GSM / WCDMA / LTE auto.

    In other words, don't sit on LTE unless you need it, because it takes considerably more battery than HSPA.
