    I am not sure how long the battery should last for, but it seems to be draining quickly to me.

    How long should the battery generally last for if you have WI-FI on constantly?

    I've had mine for a couple months now, and the battery life has been fairly good, but not what I expected after reading what you all said. I don't pay a whole lot of games, Clash of Clans is the only one (which I know kills it so I try to charge while I'm playing it) that I play regularly. I browse Twitter and the internet a lot, never have Wi-Fi on but those both seem to run my battery down a good amount even when I'm just reading. I just started using chrome instead of opera in hope that it helps a bit as well.

    Anyways here are some screenshots, if anyone has any advice please share, I just don't know what to do.





    And for some reason today, in the battery section of my settings, it showed Bluetooth used 75% of my battery. It's never done that and I haven't had Bluetooth on at all today so I'm not sure what to make of that.

    I still get amazing battery life. By the time I get home from work at 5:30pm (unplug phone at 7am) I'm usually at 80%++. I could go 2 days if need be, but out of habit, I plug it in at night.

    I can usually go 48 hrs before having to charge again.

    so i formatted my phone and my battery life is still nowhere near what people are posting here. i had about 20% battery left w/ 2.5 hrs screen time, and 21 hrs off charge (including 8 hrs while i was sleeping where i used very little battery).

    basically the only thing i've been using the phone for is browsing the web using Chrome (since i've not yet reinstalled any other 3rd party apps). since it's not an app issue, can it be the brightness? i'm at 60%/automatic. what brightness do you guys run it to get such a good battery life?

    Battery life is highly dependent on cellular signal strength. If you're in a weak area, battery goes much faster than with strong signal.

    I was told it is good to charge your battery for an hour extra once it is supposedly charged, as it is only partially charged.

    Also, my phone signal keeps varying. Does it really have such an affect on the battery life?

    Yes, cellular signal has a very large effect on battery life.

    Ok. I will have to look into that then, as seem to be only getting one bar a lot of the time.

    One bar a majority of the time will kill your battery pretty darn fast for sure. Add to that ongoing apps and location services etc. you are not gonna see prime battery life.

    Thanks. I only have WiFi on, but I am going to have to speak to my network provider.

    In regards to my battery, it says my screen is taking 50% of my battery according to GSam. My screen brightness is only 30%, and my screen times out after 30 secs. That surely isn't right?

    If you are using the phone for basic stuff, like texting, e-mail, Web surfing, etc, then it is perfectly normal that screen is using the most battery by far.

    That's all I do. I guess that is normal then. The battery doesn't seem right to me though, as I am lucky if it lasts me two days with on and off usage.

    How much screen on time are you getting?

    GSam says 7h 25m, but also says 6h 39m max. Not sure which is the correct figure.

    Two days off and on usage with 6-7 hours screen time is excellent battery life!

    Either way nothing is wrong with your battery life. 6-8 hrs screen on time is normal for G2. You won't get 2+ days unless you reduce screen on time.

    I haven't got anything to judge it by from personally, so that is why I am unsure if the battery life is good or not.

    About the same as my lumia 1520. I have about 65% left after a full day of use.

    I just bought my VZW LG G2 yesterday used for $100.
    From 80% charge I got 15hrs with moderate use. I let the battery fully drain and fully charged it. I'm currently at 68% with 12hrs.

    I still get good battery life since my purchase of the G2 last year. However battery life at one time was excellent which was pre-KK. I'm a bit disappointed in that regard but again I still get 15 hours usage between charges which, I think keeps this device ahead of its competition.
