    Wow how is that? I don't have Facebook and Instagram installed so thst makes a dofference. Also the only day I had bad battery life is when there was something wrong with my internet connection which I had to go to T-Mobile about. Other than that I haven't had less that 4.5 and averaging close to 6 a day. What's your usage?
    Don't even have Facebook. Just my Gmail account. Normal usage. Few YouTube videos. Mostly web browsing this forums. News, text etc. Really disappointed.
    Have factory reset it 3 times already.

    Wow thats crazy. Dont know what else to tell you. The V20 lasts me from 3AM to 7-8PM with about 5-6 hours SOT consistently at least for the first week. I'll have to see how this week goes.

    I use Folio instead of Facebook and FB messenger. Better on battery life and RAM.

    Yeah I don't know how you guys are getting such great battery life, I even started a thread seeing if my battery life was abnormal or not. I barely crack the 3 hour Screen on time mark, and my battery lasts anywhere from 8-14 hours depending on how I use my 'screen on' time. I've even tried various different Facebook wrappers to seemingly no difference, but now I'm going to try out Folio.

    I'm going to try one more thing after my next full charge, and that's use the stock LG OS instead of Nova Prime. I'm wondering if maybe that's the culprit? My battery usage stats never seem to show anything out of the ordinary :/

    I feel like my battery life is terrible, I leave my house with 100% and by the time I get to work, a little under 1:30 later I'll be at around 65%-70% while streaming music and reading articles. Not all screen on time, but most of it. Maybe I have a lot of background processes running

    I've tried that too. Got rid of nova and used LG stock. Didn't make any difference. I'm just getting from 2 to 3 hours of sot.

    Mine has been a massive improvement over the V10. I don't even sweat Pokemon Go sessions anymore.

    I wonder why half of us get great battery life, and the other doesn't? We're smart people right? We should be able to figure this out!

    Somone should check their battery statue before they recharge. I've see android OS will keep the device awake for hours.

    Guys....turn that battery hogging GPS off! It makes the biggest difference. Turn it on Battery saving mode (networks only). Its all you need, until you need the navigation while driving. You can download a shortcut to go directly to toggle it on/off.

    All those apps like Facebook, Uber, Tinder, Google Play Services? ? are all running juice on that high accuracy GPS, which is constantly trying to locate you through walls, elevators, and buildings. The battery saving mode is all you need, and it still knows which stores i'm in (had to turn those coupon and alerts from Google off!).

    I also recommend never using more than 60% screen brightness unless you really need it (like in sunlight). This phone is super bright, especially with high contrast mode turned on. At night in a dark room, I use only 25% brightness.

    I don't turn on GPS until I'm using maps and my Bluetooth is never on until I'm playing music in my car. I have my screen set to auto-brightness, being at 50% or less most of the time.

    I don't have tinder or uber, just disabled Facebook and messenger and am using Folio instead.

    Switched from Nova Prime to the stock OS, and switched my second screen to off when the main screen is in use.

    I did all that and still only got about 12 hours of battery life and couldn't even get 2.5 hours screen on time going from 98% to 20% battery. I give up.

    You're a normal user like me. I'm convinced people who crow about a week of battery life without recharging are taking extreme measures to get their exceptional battery life. Every phone has threads claiming incredible battery life with a dozen folks trying to match it. Don't sweat it. Get a spare battery.

    Turning izat off oddly saves battery, contrary to what everything is saying.

    I agree, but 2.5hrs SOT is not normal unless there is really bad signal, or a rogue app or something.

    He reflects my sentiments exactly. One of the great weaknesses of Android is the analysis of battery use our phone shows us. So many things are listed under Kernel or Android system that it isn't possible to figure out exactly what is using our batteries. Like everyone says to go from gps to network location but I wonder how much screen on time that saves? 10 minutes? Not worth bothering. 30 minutes I would do it. My hunch is it is more like 3 minutes saved.
