    Yeah so 3 hours on screen time. Seems like it's about 4 hours screen time and 16 standby or 3 hours screen time and 20 hours standby is about the norm for the X

    No WiFi, Bluetooth off GPS on, active notifications on, touchless control on. 2 email accounts and 1 Facebook syncing. Not very good.
    You did have 31 mintues of screen on time and all on a cellular signal. I don't think what you showing is bad.

    Yeah. It's acceptable. Maybe a smidge more than I got with the GS4. The phone is a lot better overall to me though.

    If you drain only 10% for every 30 mins of on screen time your on track to get 5 hours on screen time. What's your complaining for lol? If I got even 3 or 3 and half, I'd be more then happy

    I posted screen shots last night showing just shy of 5 hours screen time and 12.5 hours total with 30% battery remaining. This was using 100% LTE and no Wifi.

    Right. And i haven't complained anywhere. Just sharing my experience. But that is also with less than 7 hours standby which is not good

    That's good. I think it just comes down to using GPS, notifications, Google now how much your syncing stuff, how many emails you get and such. I could probably disable all of that and get 6 hours screen

    I cant wait to hear more reasons from you on why I'm not able to go 6-8 hours of screen time with my Moto X. Oh and just for you here is my set up once again......Everything from Google now to assist is on. Auto Brightness enabled. Touch less enabled. I use Llama to turn off my WiFi when I'm away from home and it puts my phone into quiet when I get to work. Bluetooth is disabled. This is my out of the box Moto X and my numbers have been almost identical for 5 straight days. I did factory reset out of the box but I do that with everything that I buy. Please give me more excuses on why this is all wrong.
    Post it, it's that easy. If you don't post it, it flat out did not happen. It's not even hard to post, and is super easy to prove. I am calling you a liar until you actually post the screen shot.

    We don't need fanbois exaggerating facts. Let the phone sell it self. There is no way this thing gets 6-8 hours of screen time with this battery.

    It is a very nice phone, and I really enjoy it, my favorite phone so far, I just refuse to even entertain bull****. 6-8 hours, put up those screen shots, or stop lying.

    Getting better every day. Getting 6-8 hours screen time since day one but now the total uptime hours are going up.
    I realize I was a bit harsh, but come one man, 6-8 hours? It's a 2200 mAh battery. Realistically, 3-4 hours will be tops.

    It is a pretty nice phone too I am really enjoying it.

    Not a problem but honestly I am just having fun with this great phone. This thing is really just a perfect phone. The battery times that I am getting are nothing different than moto is advertising for the moto x. I love this phone.

    If I were you, I'd check into that Android Central app that's sucking 3.6% of your battery.

    I get the secret to more than 3 hours of screen time with this phone. Grant pointed it out. His shows 1.8% of the time is cell radio. In otherwords, do not use the cell radio. Use the wifi. If yo use the cell radio or LTE, you get pretty pedestrian battery time.

    Grant, you are correct then. 6 hours is possible. The Anatech reviewer did the same thing you did, used it and played video for 5.5 straight hours, before the battery died.

    Do not sync, do not use the LTE or cell radio at all, and you get fantastic battery life. I got it. Now, how about that 6-8 hour of screen time pic next.

    EDIT: I am taking mine back this weekend, if I continue to get 2.5 hours of screen time, and 12 total hours. I bought this phone because it was little, the screen was nice, and the battery was supposed to last. The battery is not better than any other phone out there. The rest is pretty damn nice though.

    His screenshot CLEARLY shows that the cell radio was active for 9 hours and 4 minutes, with WiFi only active for 1 hour 1 minute.

    Were on the same boat. Just a little over 2 and half hours of on screen time usually browse and instagram on 4g and about 10-11 hours total battery with most features turned off, have no idea how people have everything syncing and turned on and still get 6 hours screen time though. this pho definetely worth the $36 restock fee to exchange it before I completely replace it with a HTC one

    Screen time of close to 5hrs total uptime (~14hrs), was on LTE for 4hrs in the day, with around 30 mins of streaming music over LTE/Bluetooth. Facebook, 2 email syncs ..quite a bit of youtube streaming (over wifi) and youtube control with connected smart TV hub, automatic brightness set, one hour voice calls, bluetooth and wifi turned on throughout the day and also took few pictures during the day.
    Im quite satisfied with the battery life with my usage patterns, Im usually getting screen times between 4:30 to 5:30 hrs from past few days. And I never really made any effort to turn things off to save battery life.. I always have bluetooth/wifi/google now/touchless control/active display/assist/chrome connect all turned on always..

    yes, on the regular one. It's 9 hours, 52%........ 1.8% of the battery was cell radio. 1.8%. ( hours of phone radio, 3 minutes of phone calls. 3 minutes. Yes, if it used like a portable video player, with some occasional (3 minutes) then you get great battery life. he used plenty of apps, that required no real data, look at the less than 2% for the apps that use data.

    Look dudes, face it. If you use the phone, the battery life is pretty damn regular. If you use it for vidoes, then it's stellar. We knew that, the reviewers already said it. Sure, don't use antanaes and get great screen time, it's a useless metric.

    Use it for data, phone calls, mapping, gps, ya know, like a smart phone, then it is regular battery life.

    This is fine. The small form factory with the big phone battery life is great. 8 hours of screen time, no. Using the radios, and other functions besides just lighting the screen up, it's just regular.

    Moto said 24 hour battery life, well, that's 24 hours, -8 for sleep, and 8 for standby at work. 8 hours for actual use.

    The best screen time I've gotten in 4 days.

    WiFi, Bluetooth, location services, syncing, power saver all off, touchless control and active noti. On.

    Yes but how do you reason with that guy after presenting screen shots showing that I was clearly on LTE. Gents, sometimes you just can't reason with ******'s. If I actually spelled that out I would be banned
