    For me, it's impressive. Better than my Lumia 1020, and my Nexus 5 on Kitkat. I've just been updated to Lollipop on the Nexus yesterday so can't compare with that yet.

    Way better than my Galaxy S3 (but of course, I would hope so!).
    I tested it out, unplugged it yesterday morning at 6:30 am and left it unplugged all day and through the night. When I woke up this morning at 5:30, it was still at 54%. I brought it to work and around 10:30 am it still had about 37%. I plugged it in then because I was anticipating being out at lunch time and using the GPS. I'm pretty sure I could have made it home before needing to charge it from single digits (maybe around 6 or 6:30 pm).

    This isn't heavy use, but it involved frequent on/off, checking emails, texting, a handful of calls, Android Central, some Google Now action, some web browsing, Facebook and a few rounds of Words With Friends...basically an average day for me. I did turn off wifi and GPS at work, which I'm sure helped.

    My LG G3 was born yesterday. Took it off the charger around 3 am today. I have had the GPS on the whole time. (But I haven't used Waze or Maps). Been fooling with the phone more than I normally do with my HTC One all day. Battery is still at 70%!!! My HTC One (M7) would have been down to 40% or less by now with GPS off. As expected, the highest user is the screen-on time. No YouTube, no music streaming, no radio, just texts, emails, weather camera and other apps. Long time user of HTC phones, newbie to LG, but I feel confident the battery is adequate.

    Mine has been on for almost 14 hrs. Moderate usage I would say. At 49% right now. I have zero complaints. Battery life has been great for me. I have had the phone since the beginning of August.

    My experience: it's good. Not great but still good. I get about 4 hours and 30 minutes of screen on time which is plenty for me.

    I've had the LG G3 for about 3+ months now, and for me the battery is good. I leave home with 100% and after a day's full of work it's down to 25-30%. I have my wifi and bluetooth always on, auto brightness set at 35%, I stream music to my car while driving to/from work for about an hour. Then I watch shows for a good 45mins-1.5hrs using 4G/LTE, then throw in the usual email, surf, txts and calls. I say that's pretty good but of course YMMV since each usage is different for every person.

    For the first charge, I was very dismayed to see the phone have such poor performance. Subsequent charges have been a night and day improvement. With reasonable use I have gotten at least 20 hours, if not more.

    What is the maximum brightness I should use if I want good battery?

    Four months. I'm not aware of any difference.

    It depends on what you mean by 'good'. Rather than aiming at the best battery life, I just aim at enjoying the experience of using the G3. With texts, a low brightness setting is enough....with images such as YouTube clips, you'd want to use a higher brightness setting, or your enjoyment is marred.

    You keep on saying good, define a good battery for your own use, cause my full day of usage for me is good. I told you what my brightness settings are on my previous post.

    This is my 2nd week with g3 and I'm easily getting 17-24 hours, 3-5 hrs screen on time, streaming on WiFi and lte, email, etc, 85% baseline screen brightness. That's more than good enough for me.

    Screen shots from my first full charge.

    No complaints. I can't say it's amazed me, but it certainly hasn't been frustrating (i've had the S3, S4, iphone)

    I've had mine 5 days. A first I thought the battery was poor (I was playing with it a lot) I switched to ART and seems better now but yesterday it was running down at a rate of about 2% every 5 mins. I charged it last night and restarted it and seems way better today. Must have been a rogue app.

    I'm hoping it settles down as my nexus 4 had poor battery and that really frustrated me.

    How much of screen on time do you get? I'm think that 4-6 hours is good.

    This is regular for me. Last night when I plugged my phone in I was at 15%. When I checked my settings, I was on 20hrs 27 mins on battery, with just about 5 hrs screen time.

    I only average between 4-5hrs, I haven't reached 6hrs yet.. due to when I stream Youtube/Netflix or other streaming apps, I maximize my brightness to either 75% or 100%

    Today i've beem using my phone for 23 and a half hours, it's light to moderate use and that include : checking facebook, instagram, email, a little bit of fb messenger, a few phone calls, a few texts, few sessions of clash of clans, and checking the phone, i've been on mobile data for about 11 h and 7 h on wi-fi, no signal for about 2h and 30 min aprox (from my calculation), i have live wallpaper (i don't think it's eating too much battery...) with a "wooping" 3h sot, it's not much but regarding the connections and no signal time i think it's ok, not brilliant but ok. I usualy get 4 h sot with heavy usage and 5h moderate to heavy usage.
