    Anandtech has the new Moto X towards the bottom of the list on every battery test he did. He is usually spot on with reviews. Would like to hear some real world numbers from some people who have the phone.. http://www.anandtech.com/show/8523/t...-2014-review/4

    It seems like it doesn't do quite as well as the 2013 on WiFi but does significantly better on LTE (due to the updated SoC).

    Josh states, "Motorola is likely tracking closely to their estimated 24 hours of “mixed usage”. The use of Moto Display will also go a long way to reduce the time with the AP and display on."

    I won't know for another week or two, but everything that I've seen thus far indicates that if the 2013 was enough for you, the 2014 will be... and vice-versa.

    Yea the 2013 really wasn't. I still have my 2013 X but have moved to a G3 as my daily driver. I guess one good thing about a smaller battery is that it charges quicker..

    The 2013 easily lasts enough for me but I fall into the letting active notifications do a lot (and I have two phones, moto x for personal and another for work) so my usage case is pretty weird and allows it to work out. Turbo charger ftw? The one rule I have for devices is that if I have to change my habits in a negative way to accommodate the device, back in the box it goes. But I came from a Gnex to the Moto X 2013 and it's an upgrade in literally every way.

    I just discovered the push bullet app. It's saving a lot of battery. I barely need to look at my phone now. All my notifications show up on my computer. Loving it.

    That's an interesting point. I'm in the habit of putting mine on wifi the minute I come home, but I'm going to have to try not doing that for a day or two and see if the battery lasts a bit longer.

    Me too with the active notifications, which is probably why the 2013 always let me go nearly two days before having to charge. I also agree with your if you have to change your habits in a negative way rule. You have to wonder if when Motorola made the decision to put a smaller battery into this phone, they figured the turbo charger would ease the pain of shorter battery life. I got nearly two days out of my OG 2013 and will do just fine with the 2014, but for people who were having trouble with the 2013, a turbo charger isn't going to convince them to buy this phone - at least it wouldn't me.

    It's not about size, but how you use it. I easily get a day of use with this phone.

    And I am growing crusted enough with the battery life of the 2013 version that I just bought a Sony z3 compact.
