    How do you do that? I have just checked and I only have two options in Setup, "Auto" or 2G. I know there is 3G available as I had a Moto G and it worked fine on the local 3G.

    I read a few of the toggle apps in the Play store and they seem to all just take the place of navigating to the place in Settings to turn stuff on or off. Since I seem to have only two options, they probably are not worth installing.
    I use this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...dirc.lteonfoff

    Not a true toggle but still pretty quick.

    What is your secret? Did you opt for the MAXX battery option on Motomaker?

    A week or so ago, my battery all of a sudden sucked. I hardly use my phone at work so it just sits undisturbed on my desk most of the day, signal is good though, a few bars of 4G.

    I noticed that I started getting low battery warnings at the end of the work day, maybe 8-9 hours off the charger, but down to 15% with almost zero use. Terrible. Used the Gsam battery app and after a few iterations, found out that the Chive app was apparently destroying the battery. I think it was searching for location all day long or something, they must have had an update that started it. Deleted it and everything is back to normal.

    Yesterday I had 11 hours off the charger, light use for net searching and texting and was at 69%. Back to loving the phone again haha.

    There is a bug after updating to 4.4. Let the battery drain completely and then put it on the charger and don't touch it for 3-4 hours. I had the same issue and after the battery drain it lasts as long as it should now. I get full days once again.

    Thanks, have used that for information more than a toggle.

    I like to keep the app count to a minimum and LTE On/Off is one I keep in my Notepad list and install if/when I need it, much like wifi analyzer etc.

    I had a similar problem when I first got the X battery was great on 4.2 (24 hours), when i updated to 4.4 it dropped to 18 hours even though I did a factory reset, yesterday I wiped the cache partition and I am back up to about 22 hours much improved so far

    I haven't done anything special, everything and all the radios are turned on with default settings (wifi/gps/bluetooth). About the only thing I changed from default was to stop active notification of email and only check every hour, its mostly spam anyway. I dont talk a lot, or text much, mostly check gmail, weather checks, and txt the wife and daughters a few times a day. The biggest change I see on this phone from my old Samsung is I can leave things like Wifi, bluetooth and gps on and they dont draw any power if there isnt an app using them. The old Samy would drain the battery dry just looking too hard at the toggles for those three.

    I average 13 to 14 hrs of use with 3.5 hours of screen time. 70 percent usage is while using wi-fi .
