    It's so much better than the V10, I am satisfied.
    So much better. I think Android Nougat and the more efficient processor are the main reasons since it only has a 200mAh batter increase over the V10.

    My battery life with screen off is amazing. Phone rarely drops a percent but with screen on and phone in use very comparable to my Note 3. Nothing to scream about. Streaming Netflix for an hour ate 25 percent of what was left in battery. Watching a 1 hour show previously downloaded from Comcast also about 25 percent of battery.

    I'm going to test out battery life with Facebook and Instagram now installed on my phone and see if I still hit my numbers. I have only ran out of juice or got close to the red maybe once since picking up the V20 in November. Let's see how these two apps play into that.

    Best day of battery life I've had since I got this phone last week.
    I have a ton of apps on my phone including FB, location on and weak LTE in my area.

    Approx how many apps do you have? More than 100?

    Took the phone off the charger before 3AM and now at 5PM I just hit 15%. I have been using the Chrome browser off and on. Hopping in and out of Android Central and Windows Central. A few YouTube videos throughout the day. Of course the Tapatalk app at least a couple times an hour. And now checking notifications in Facebook and Instagram which I previously did not have installed on my phone. Not sure if its just my phone but the battery life continues to impress me and this is with the second screen always on. Absolutely no complaints from me. And I keep my screen at 35% brightness.
    If I decide to get a spare battery, I will never have to even worry about battery life again.

    Having very good battery life after installing the latest update. Also, manually setting screen brightness helps and switching WiFi to standby when phone is idle is a plus.

    No luck for me today as phone idle has burned up just about as much battery as the screen being on. Not sure why but probably one of those fluke days.

    UPDATE: I've been getting 4 - 6 hour SOT now (probably due to apps and features I've installed). Still amazing and a very reliable battery performance.

    Found the culprit. Turns out I left GPS on by accident.

    I leave mine on high accuracy (been testing it out for a last week or so) and mine is still decent. Maybe that's why I don't constantly get 6 hours of SOT like you. Haha

    Yeah it definitely drains the battery quicker. I couldn't figure out why I was having those spikes where the battery would just nosedive in standby mode. The GPS seems to be the top candidate for why that happened. You should turn yours off and see what a difference it makes.

    I tend not to have those nose dives.. But I also turned off WiFi scan and Bluetooth scan.. I'm on 20h with 4h30m SOT time and 26 percent left.

    My V20: I charge my phone to 100% before I go to sleep and unplug it. When I wake up 7-8 hours later, it is still at 100%. I have the battery saver running and all my apps including Facebook running. For all previous phones, this would result in a phone with 70-80% and I would have to charge it in the car on my way to work. My V20 doesn't need to be charge until around 3-4PM with minimal use except during lunch when I'm using it more. The phone NEVER gets hot and I think this is one of the reasons why the battery lasts forever. BTW I bought the extra battery and the battery charger cradle for it so I can go to a long concert with no worries. I have a power bank but I don't think I will ever need it. The extra battery will be sufficient.

    yeah, I'm not mad at this battery.. LOL we both came from the V10. Have you tried to turn off the wifi and BT scanning on GPS? Also, turn off location history on Google? GPS rarely uses any of my juice, it's weird. Waze only used 7% of my battery also. and a game I played for 1h20 used 6% - only 252mah.. WEIRD

    For an hour and 20 minutes only used 6%? Wow. But I've never tried any other battery saving methods. Besides not downloading Facebook amd Instagram previously I just used the phone and am pleased. I can't even imagine how much more I could squeeze out of the battery if I turned the second screen off completely which I never have tried.

    All I did was turn on the data saver.. last time I tried this, it didn't make any difference, this time around it seems like it is.. especially with that game.. I just have voxer, slack, two email accounts, allo and hotspot not affected by the data saver and it seems to have worked well. I turned it on yesterday and I was surprised..

    Turning the second screen off doesn't really do anything in my experience.. maybe save a percent or so.

    But what helped me was Lux. I like auto brightness but the screen can get very bright, a little too bright for evenings, so I have Lux and set it never to go over a certain percentage and use it in smart mode to change with the location of the sun. I did that maybe a month ago and it does well for me.

    Clearing the cache helps. I went from 4 hours SOT to 5.5 hours SOT.

    My battery life has far exceeded expectations with the exception of two days where I had sudden steep drain (which, according to other users' reports appears to have been due to an FB update). I bought a 2nd battery but have only needed it once.

    For whatever reason my battery life was atrocious today. First time I didn't make it home without having to power the phone off just so the battery wouldn't completely die. Looking at the stats Android system, Android OS, and Phone Idle really seemed to do a number as I was at 11% with less than 3 hours SOT! Crazy thing is the phone never overheated once in that time otherwise I would have probably restarted the device to see if that would've helped.

    Com.qualcomm.atfwd under Android system is Qualcomm's Wi-Fi display service. Almost guaranteed it ran rogue for some reason and caused your issues today.

    I wonder why then. I always turn Wi-Fi off as soon as I leave the house in the morning.
