    I have to charge at least twice a day
    The screen on time is just over 3 hours
    Any tips on how to make the battery life longer?

    Me too. I just disabled a bunch of bloat and anything else I won't be using. Hopefully that will help. But I'm not impressed.

    I'd take them back, that's worse than the samsung and that phone is pretty bad.

    Most of the people here that have their phones have pretty good battery life. Many are getting more than they expected so it may be better to simply say your life is not as good as you expected.

    Have you looked at the battery consumption and checked to see if there is something unusual such as one program pulling way more power than it should? Have you rebooted the phone to see if that has a positive effect?

    I guess there is always a chance of obtaining a bad battery and if you cannot identify anything that is pulling more juice than it should, I would consider exchanging the phone for a new one because you seem to be an exception at the moment.

    It would be helpful to know what carriers you're using the phone on. That could make a difference also.

    Would you be able to post a screenshot of your stats? This will help us with troubleshooting.

    Did you have the game optimizer in the battery settings turned on? Does it make any difference?

    Also, what level is the brightness at?

    Hmm. That's a bit disappointing. Not terrible, but thats pretty average.

    I think i averaged 30mins more on my G3, but my optimus G only got 2 hours of straight gaming so its a huge improvement.

    Is there any way to turn off the chime that sounds when the battery is fully charged? I've been able to tweak all the other sound settings to my liking, but I can't seem to find this one.

    Thanks in advance.

    That's because all these reviewers have been reviewing the over seas variant for the most part in which the LTE doesn't even work in North America. So they're getting better battery life, because as everyone knows, LTE is much more of a battery hog!

    The battery full sounds is something put in by the manufacture. You would have to be rooted in order to disable it.

    That's so annoying. About an hour after I go to bed it vibrates and wakes me up.

    Have had the phone since day one, and all of a sudden, my GPS won't turn off. Just startes earlier this morning. Appears the Tmo My Account App is forcing the GPS to stay on and killing the battery. Didn't do anything wrong or different types with my phone. Can't disable or Uninstall the app either. Anyone else having this issue?

    I see my GPS on for no reason sometimes.. I wonder if this is why.. hmm

    How did you find that out?

    Clicked on Location to see what apps were using it, and the Tmo My Account showed up. Went to it and forced stopped it, and the location icon stopped. But minutes later, doing it again. I looked under settings, general, battery, usage, Android system, and GPS is like non stop.

    Not on T-Mobile but i noticed my GPS icon coming on a lot more often than it did on my G3. I used Access Lock to the away location from just about every app i could.

    Check out page 3 of this thread for Access Lock.

    Mine does this too and I can't figure out how to get the app disabled for good. It will restart on its own

    I don't like that app honestly. Don't see a need for it.
