    Normal standby for me is about 18hrs
    With or without usage? Is it 18 hours of screen off? Or 18 hours with your usage? :-)

    i want to buy a lg g4, but i am reading some reviews saying that the lg g4 battery is bad and the s6 has a better battery life, any g4 user can help me with his battery life experience ?
    I had the Samsung S6 and now own the LG G4. YMMV. But for me, comparing the S6 to the LG4, the S6 has worse battery life. The standby on the S6 was bad. I would leave my S6 overnight at 100% and would wake up to 70%. In comparison, I can leave the LG G4 at 100% overnight and wake up at the lowest at 96%. My S6 wouldn't make it by five pm with power. I can easily get twelve hours with the G4 during the day.

    My battery life on my Verizon G4 has been oddly mixed. For instance, last night I managed an hour and a half of SOT only using 20% battery. That seemed pretty darn good to me. But then, leaving the phone overnight, I lost like 15% overnight. Very odd. Why would a phone lose so much power overnight?

    After my first week of usage, I'm averaging around 5.5hrs of SOT, under many different kinds of usage patterns (i.e. moderate to heavy, robust use of video or web browsing, etc.). That figures to about 12-14hrs before returning to the charger daily. Overall, I have been using it a lot more heavily than I will once I settle into a routine, so I wouldn't be surprised to see battery life improve more yet.

    It's killer on mine, off the charger I lose maybe 3% overnight.
    LOL...I took the phone off the charger last night at 100%, woke up to 100% this morning!! Obviously it takes a bit to move it off of the 100% but still, not bad!

    This was yesterday into today's usage. almost exactly 4hrs SOT at that point, including the previous 2 hours before capturing the screenshot this afternoon. overnight it used 1%/hr.
    Lg g4 battery life ?-uploadfromtaptalk1436132077438.jpg


    if this usage continues I'll be happy considering the removable battery coming from lg and the quick charge charger I ordered from Amazon. These figures are no where near the 50 hours/3hrs sot I routinely got on my g2 when new and running JB and without hardly doing any battery management, but I won't be complaining.

    it's rare I get 4 hrs sot. weekdays it's closer to 2 than it is to even 3 hrs, but then I also pair my pebble for 10 hours. with the quick charge dc charger I also ordered I expect the phone to be over 60% just from the car ride home every day. haven't experienced quick charge yet, but if it's as good as ppl claim my 45 minute commute home with gps, music, 2 or even 3 bt devices, and full screen brightness should net me more than the +5-10% I've been getting on the g4.

    What is your brightness setting on the screen?? I find that the battery stays on 100% for nearly an hour depending on usage and yes standby time is fab. But since Marshmallow it is worse when your using it I find it drains faster than Lollipop for sure. I miss those days of the LG G2 battery. If this phone had a 1080p screen the battery life would be insanely good. Most I get is 3 hours of SOT. I am not sure if it's just me or not but I think image quality looks a little more noisy and grainy since MM update

    You dug up a 7 month old thread to post that?

    If you want help post screen shots of battery usage. Clearly something is running rogue.

    I think you need to tweak this phone (like any other) to get the most out of it. I disabled a lot of apps that came from VZ, and also Google which were sucking my battery dry (Hangouts, Chrome).

    Last night I went to bed with 15% remaining, 4.5 hours of screen time, 1:45 talk time and some of that in bad areas with poor coverage. The first few days I didn't even make it past 6:00pm before it ran out of battery.

    I'm not a power user though, no games, no social stuff (Facebook, Twitter), mostly surfing/text/weather/phone/email/calculator/calendar.
    What kind of tweaking? Do you need any particular apps? I just got one today. So far, I'm not impressed. I don't even have it activated yet.

    I use Greenify which even though I have extended battery helps with making sure stuff doesn't sync/turn on unless I use it physically

    Since I move around frequently built-in Doze doesn't really work for me

    G4 battery usually lasts from 3.75 to 4.5 hrs marshmallow for me on WiFi. On 3g its almost always around 3.25 hours SoT.
    Battery is decent and it's better than the s6, however you'll have to uninstall or disable some pre installed apps and turn off auto sync, NFC , bluetooth, location etc.

    I made that post back in July. It's March the following year and MM has destroyed any joy I had with this phone. I don't care about it anymore and hope it dies so I can justify a new one.

    Follow the link below that has some suggestions on tweaking the battery (and other fixes) and you might get the phone working better. To be honest I don't remember exactly what I did last summer, however until MM this phone's battery life was outstanding.

    Very nice. I've been using the Mugen 6200 mah battery. I absolutely love the battery life, but the phone is so bulky and heavy with the battery attached. I wish someone made a 4500 mah battery that was bigger and heavier than the stock battery, but not a complete brick.

    I just got my Lg G4 a couple of weeks ago. Switched over from iPhone 6. I have to say I like a lot of things about the G4, but the battery is awful!!
    I get about 2 to 3 hours of battery when using it very little. By very little I mean check email 4 or 5 times, send 2 or 3 files to Evernote, check the weather 2 times and make 1 phone call and answer 1 phone call and do 3 or 4 text messages.... that's it!! It is pretty much useless as a mobile device. I literally have to do a full charge it 3 times a day minimum. I have deleted all but stock apps. I have turned off all running apps. I even went so far as to do a factory restore but it didn't help at all. I even tried using the gps and I had it on for 45 minutes and the battery died. If I have it plugged into a car charger while using the gps it discharges faster than it charges. However, with it plugged in I can go for 2 hours with the gps before it reaches 5% battery. All I can say is it's good that I can swap out the battery. I need to carry a dozen fresh ones with me for a days work.
    Compare this to my iPhone 6 that gets used almost constantly all day ... countless phone calls, text messages, playing games, reading ebook, checking weather, doing calculations on calculator app, do web searches, a few internet downloads ... the screen is on a lot and by the end of the day i'm still at 48% battery.
    Do I regret switching from iPhone 6 to Lg G4? You bet I do. This G4 is going into the drawer and I'm using the iPhone again. Waste of money.
