    I got 7 hours of screen time yesterday with 40% left to go before ending the day. I was on it all day, downloading a few gigs of music from Google Play, posting here, FB, installing apps and tweaking the phone, texting. I can honestly say I have never been as happy with a purchase as I am with this device so far
    That is insane battery life. I am happy to see it is living up to manufacturers claims for once! I'm more than likely going to grab a Force with the Best Buy deal but if it doesnt work out the Play is definitely on my list of phones.

    So far pretty at 75% with pretty heavy usage including Spotify.

    I ran across the street to Verizon and got a USB to USB C converter to keep at work but trying to avoid using it.

    For those who have one how is the phones speaker? Is it loud (good enough to watch videos and hear Google maps while driving)? Also how is the headphone output?

    I'm interested into knowing also. How does the phone speaker compare to the turbo2

    Maybe the Turbo 2 has marginally better speakers. I just picked this up. Charging the battery. It will play as is but with the battery charged it says it is good for 10 hours. Works and sounds awesome. You can also charge both phone and speaker when attached to the phone if you were wondering.

    Speaker is significantly better than the 5x (I know that's not what you asked but that's what I have on my desk).

    You're right- online only waived activation fee
    Wow the free upgrade fee online didn't last long. I was on the fence about the play decided to get it today. The promotion is over. Oh well the story of my life.

    I'm leaning more and more to picking one of these up. I'm not a Verizon customer so I have to have a friend go get it for me. I've looked into it and it supports the AT&T bands used in my area (2,4, and awkwardly 5) using the LTE discovery app. I saw the preorder price for the unlocked version ($450) and the Z Play Droid seems like a better choice, plus I don't have to wait a month. The battery life alone makes this a cut above phones in the same price range and higher, because I absolutely hate having to worry about charging my phone while in a busy airport or if I'm just out in town.

    Only reason why I'm on the fence is I'm using the 2 GBR/16 GBS G4 Plus as a place holder since my laggy G5 is uninsured and broken, but man is this G4 Plus awesome, the only things that would've made it the perfect phone would have been NFC and USB-C, but at $250 I won't complain since it runs my and games (Marvel Future Fight, Fallout Shelter, and Hitman Sniper) pretty smoothly to me and gets me through my work day without having to charge.

    Alright guys, I want the Z play instead of my current Z. Should I sell my z droid and buy a z play? I really value battery life and I really do not like the back of the moto z.

    Aren't they the same backs? Are you within your return period or not? You could probably sell it on swappa.

    If you value battery life, then the Z Play is your best bet. Take a look at some of the usage I'm getting. It's incredible! So pleasantly surprised.

    Do you use your phone? I'm seeing 15 hours of battery use and only 10% of that is app use. Screen on time of 1 1/2 hours. You used the actual phone (call/talk) for 20 seconds.

    I barely ever talk on the phone, but I use my phone a lot. Did you see the previous screenshot I posted where I had 8:20 SOT with 37% remaining?

    As for the screenshot where I'd only used my phone for 1.5 hours in a 15 hour day - it's a weekend and I have a life. I was out and about.

    You have only 10% app use. Do you disable a lot of apps from running in the background?

    Not really. I only disable the Verizon bloat. I let everything else run. Most of my usage is Reddit, Android Central and other forums, Twitter, texting, web browsing, and a little bit of camera.

    I keep brightness at 50 percent adaptive brightness.

    I don't really do any gaming, so maybe that's part of it.
