    Well it's good to hear I'm not off the mark. I'm not interested in tuning off features to get the most out of the device. My setting are like most everyone else's. Been playing with AOD and find I am fester off without it.

    Yea, I don't believe in depriving one's self of features in order to preserve battery so I use it however I like.
    AOD just doesn't appeal to me, that's the only reason I don't use it.

    I'm with you. If I have to turn off or disable features, then what's the point of the device.

    I'm with you, I'm not a fan of AOD but I LOVE that LG threw in an LED flasher... This is how I prefer to be notified of new messages.

    Same here, still get great battery life without turning off any features (what's the point in making it dumb phone). Easily get around 5 hr screen time without doing much. Auto brightness on, everything left on default setting and no crappy apps which manage doze or other stuff like that since most of the cases they are the ones causing the issue

    the only thing I've done is turn my screen resolution to medium.

    This thread made me decide to look at my SOT when I hit 20% battery yesterday and I was at 6 hours. I continued to use it for another half hour until I hit 15%.

    I've had mine for a month. I average 4 hours of SOT usually with 16 hours of usage

    Gotta say the battery life has been fine for what I need it to do. It gets me through the day easily but the SoT I am seeing here seem like a pipe dream for me at least. I havent hit 3 hours on SoT in about two weeks or more. I am averaging about 12-15 hours and 1.5-2 hours SoT. Its gotta be the auto brightness, but I work outside so I cant keep it low. But I dont even take my phone out and look at it outside a lot either though. Could it getting warm in my pocket in sunlight make it drain fast?

    I work outside also. your experience is about the same as mine. sometimes I get 15-17 hours usage with only an hour SOT. and my phone's about dead. I wonder if heat does have an impact. that's a good question

    Interesting. I think much of it has to do with connecting to (even just syncing to) LTE, which is a battery hog. I work at home, connected to wifi all day, and easily get 24hrs between charges and about 5hrs SOT.

    Also, if your SOT is in full sun, the screen is going to be extremely bright compared to indoor SOT and thus drain the battery much faster.

    My g6 doesn't get the best Sot because sprints signal where I am is weak and I always keep my brightness up. But when I'm outside in the heat my battery does get hot and drain

    just a quick update, I am off work today, so I'm inside most of the day to relax. I turned my brightness to auto, and now I'm over 7 hours of usage with 5 hours of SOT

    It's gotta be the brightness. It's not really a deal breaker anyways because I'm not constantly on my phone. It was mainly a curiosity.
