    I only wish I could get these results on my lg g4. I may just switch full-time to my moto g! 2 h 56 min SOT and at 63%!

    You did charge a bit there. Probably would have been closer to 50% remaining . Still solid battery life. About 6 hours SoT over 20+ hours is great

    My apologies! I forgot I plugged it into my car to sync my contacts! Thanks for pointing that out.

    No problem. How is the camera on it by the way? My first gen Moto G's was pretty terrible in anything other than direct light

    Here are some shots I took yesterday at the golf course by my house. Just left the settings as is. Not too shabby.

    I wish I knew how everyone is getting such amazing battery life. I was getting about 3 hrs of on screen time and 24 hours off the charger, on average. I didn't hit 4 hrs SOT once, and I don't game or use social media apps, so I can't explain it.

    It's a nice device and everyone else seems to have great battery life, but mine is being shipped back to Moto today.

    How is your cellular reception? If your signal is not good, that will often use a lot of battery (in general) trying to pull in or hold the signal.

    Sync settings? WiFi? Signal strength? Varying factors could play into this or you could have the luck I usually have and have gotten a dud.

    Signal strength is solid and consistent. I live in a populated metro suburb, and am consistently running at about ~75dbm

    Sync settings are nothing crazy. Two Gmails, one of which is about every four hours or so. The other one is as they arrive. No huge Play Services consumption in battery stats. I have no idea.

    It's packed up right now, but I'm debating what to do. I have the label printed so I have a little bit of time before sending it back. My OnePlus One is about to get thrown in the garbage thanks to it's horrific GPS that NEVER works without multiple reboots, and this Zenfone 2 I'm currently rocking weighs as much as I do and isn't the stock type of device I prefer. I'm in the process of getting the One RMA'd, but after all the hoops I'm having to jump through with a near guarantee of "your device has some scratches on the rim, so you're gonna have to pay for repair", I'm just not in the mood for that process.

    Sounds like you and I have a lot in common, my friend. I have YET to find a phone that I can be happy with for longer than about 2 weeks. It seem's like each and every phone has at least 1 fatal flaw that keeps it from being a phone I can hang on to. I don't know that I would keep the moto g given the battery life that it is giving you. Had the unit I purchased done that, it'd be back in heartbeat. I feel for you, I really do. I used to think I was just a tech junkie, but more so, i think i have yet to find a unit that I can be content with. I'm hoping this is it for me for a while.

    Yeah, I agree. Decent camera, solid-enough performance, great battery life, and a good-display-for-the-size-that-I-can-see-outside that isn't a giant phone would be great. Thanks.

    I don't need 8gb of RAM and a RAID setup for my phone. I don't need it to be everything and cost nothing AND make me lunch. I just want it to work well for a reasonable price.

    I'd exchange it. Sounds like you got a dud. Every review I've seen has way better battery life than that.

    It's getting dropped off at UPS for return today. I think I'm gonna stick with the Zenfone 2 (which doesn't have good battery life either) for now.

    I probably did get a dud, but oh well. Maybe I'll pick up another one in the future. Enjoy yours, everyone!

    My battery life is less than stellar after 4 days with this phone. Day 1 I got around 6 hours SoT but the last 3 days I'm averaging about 4 hours.

    Great phone otherwise!

    Well the max SOT I've got is around 7 hours 45 mins.... This includes 30 mins of GT racing, whatsapp, syncing of 2 gmail accounts, Facebook, calls, and lots of reading through an app as next day I had my exam and I was studying through the E-book installed on my moto g3.... So considering all this, I think It's pretty good.

    I was worried about the battery when looking at it on paper. I am more than happy with my day to day use. This phone has great battery life

    I'm looking right now at my Moto G 3rd Gen 2015 (basic model 1 GB RAM bought on Amazon Spain daily flash sale for 119 bucks) and with 6 hours and 10 minutes of screen time it's been up and running now for 23 hours 52 minutes and still 32% battery left, I've had a lot of messaging going on WhatsApp + Facebook Messenger, 1 hour 30 minutes of phone call (3G), a lot of Facebook and camera (video / photos). WiFi on 90% of the time (had 4G data for an hour while I was in the car) so it's just really good battery life all things considered that I still have juice for some calls, more photos and messaging / browsing and stuff before charging it again, really worth the price specially on sale considering the 2 GB model is 210+ bucks here regular price, also it's very smooth and since I don't game or use other apps I find the 1 GB to be perfectly adequate and it's never refreshing my 3-4 most used apps when I need to pull them to the front (unless I push it to the limit and try Facebook + YouTube + Google Music + Maps + Chrome + Play Store.... but I've seen my cousin' 2 GB refreshing apps too in this scenario), so really great memory management, great phone.
