    It sure has been my experience with just about every phone I owned from BlackBerry's to Droids. It seems to take about 2 weeks to start seeing consistent battery life. My Droid Turbo wouldn't hardly get past one day but after a week or two it lasted all day with 40% left by bed time. I also am on Verizon and shut off WiFi when I leave the house.
    Good to know.

    What I don't understand is why do you need more than 4 hours of screen on time?
    Because I sometimes use my phone and its screen for well over 4 hours per day, using Waze, taking notes, sending messages, using email, researching, playing games, reading Reddit and tech blogs, and even talking on the phone. With my current phone (OPO), I can get over 6 hours SOT, or well over 4 hours SOT plus 6 hours tethering (the Note tablet I use at work, syncing to Evernote), 3 hours bluetooth streaming, and a lot of calls. This is either on SlimKat or on SlimSaber LP built with CAF. I have no doubt that the MPE will soon have some great roms that will have way better battery life, and google will finally solve the MRA bug, so the Moto X will also get 6 hours SOT. I will wait until then. The main reason I want the MPE is storage. I am way cramped with 64GB on the OPO. But battery life is even more important than storage to me. Having an unlockable bootloader is the most important of all, otherwise I would have a Note 4 to also get the replaceable battery.

    Note 4 rocks! If it had 64GB and (good) front stereo speakers, I would not even be trying the Pure. Well, Samsung's nixing the sd slot also is a reason. This in part was a "matter of principle" purchase. I want to support companies that have the features I value. Word.

    But, noooooo. You are supposed to embrace the cloud and "pin" your selections, and hope for data or wifi access. That or carry an OTG adapter around that poorly integrates with media- "really" handy when listening to music!

    My second day with it, so have been on it a lot. I have been at home on WiFi the whole time. I have been attempting to download music all day as well.

    BTW, anyone else having troubles downloading music via Google Play Music? I keep getting a WiFi error.

    I do keep some media on my phone- audiobooks and music. I keep a couple of backups of my favorite roms. I take a good amount of pictures and video. The majority is offline GPS data - Sygic and MapsWithMe use a little, but Gaia (hiking GPS) uses a lot. I don't like to be lost when I am in the woods without cell service, or run out of battery, especially with a phone that I cannot replace it.

    Unfortunately for me its a bust, I take the phone off the charger at 8 or 9 am in the morning top it off at 12 before I go into work at 1pm, working till 10-30 I have no access to charging so it has to last. On wifi at work all night but by 10.30 its usually less than 8% if I try not t use it to much,
    would post screen shot but its show little less than 2 hours screen on, once 3 hours thats it. Will go back to Nexus and hope the Huawei nex or g4 pro comes out with better battery life. To be honest its like a smaller nexus 6 with worse battery life to me.

    If you're relying on your phone for navigation in the wilderness, you're doing it wrong. That's why stand-alone GPS exists.......or, you know, a topographic map and a compass. They never run out of battery. There isn't a snowball's chance in hell I'm relying on a cell phone when getting lost could potentially cost me my life.

    If I don't use Chrome much, I get fantastic battery life. Currently at 61% with 2 hours and 22 minutes SOT. At this rate, I'll get over 6 hours before my phone dies. If the majority of my use is Chrome, I'll get a little over 3 hours.

    So a few days in, I am finding that the phone has decent (but not extraordinary) battery life - i.e. it lasts through a full day perfectly fine 95% of the time without having to go on a charger before bedtime. This is with bluetooth on and paired with my Moto 360, as well as wifi on. Idle time usage is quite good though, hardly a budge in percentage, which is a good thing!

    That isn't great is it! It is strange that you are getting not a great deal of sot yet others seem to be getting a fair bit more, the battery life on this phone is a bit hit and miss and I am still unsure about getting one as knowing my luck I will have poor battery life!

    I also disabled Moto and Ambient display which helped my battery a bit and stopped the phone from turning on and texting people in my pocket, which drained my battery a lot.

    There is a definite battery life improvement disabling the sensor and notification features. No harm no foul for me, since also turned it all off on Note 4.

    How did this compare to the two Samsung phones with the same size battery? I have the note edge but I hate the battery life. This will probably be my next phone

    Depending on your needs you may be better off, battery wise, disabling LTE. I've had mine on old fashioned 3G only all day today in a test run. Speeds seem just fine for most tasks (as in, web pages still load *very* quickly), audio streaming seems good too. For video you'd want to switch back to LTE obviously, but that takes a mere second or two, so...no worries.

    Personally, I'd rather have the ambient display and some of Moto's other tricks engaged and save battery with LTE radios off. This also may have the side benefit of giving the phone an even better signal in sketchy areas as 3G was the norm for many years and had plenty of tower build out. Just My .02

    P.S., Verizon user here. If you're on a GSM network, this approach is even more attractive because you can use H+/4G when you turn off LTE. They're plenty fast enough for audio and video.

    I use it most whenbim driving for uber and Lyft. Screen on time is about 4-5 hours give or take. I like that I canturbo charge it at home or in the office but I wish they had something like that for the car.

    Wow - first full day with normal usage and its really bad. Like something must be wrong bad. Off charger at 7am and now its 4pm, and I'm at 30%. Would definitely need to charge to make it to this evening. Can't keep this phone if I can't get a full day of normal usage and today wasnt that heavy a usage.

    Looks like Screen On Time is only 1 hour so far. So that is really bad. That is at 30% brightness.

    I think the biggest drain I saw all day has something to do with the Driving Feature enabled. This AM on commute, I had that feature turn on, which let me answer texts etc using voice commands. Seemed like a nice idea - but on a 1 hour commute, with Bluetooth streaming while it was on, burned through 30% battery. Seemed like it was constantly searching for cloud Moto signal or something?

    Google Services seems to be big hog as well as Android OS. Hoping that is a first day thing or something.

    So I'm hoping its just a matter of turning off some features like that one. Maybe the motion sensors as well. But stinks to get a new phone with new features and be struggling to turn stuff off to make it through a day. Had been hoping to at least be able to leave bluetooth and GPS on all day, and hopefully the active notifications from Moto. Will try that AM tomorrow.
