    Very nice! Isn't it so liberating to know that no matter what you do, ever, you'll never run out of juice before bedtime?
    Absolutely! I considered a battery mod but it's not needed.

    That's where I'm at with my Z Force. I rarely have to plug it in before the end of the day (the extra life of the Z Play would probably have prevented needing it at all). I'll be watching for a deal on a battery mod for use while travelling, though I already have a "normal" battery pack that I could use.

    After waking up this morning. First day of use, wifi, bluetooth and full GPS on the whole time. I'm impressed.

    I would love to see a back cover that is a wireless charging adapter. They could stuff that in the back of one of the cover plates. I would buy that. I don't need the extra battery and bulk.

    If someone knew which pins in back would charge the battery, one of these might be able to adapt a cover.

    Incipio makes an extended battery mod that includes wireless charging. Covers both Qi & PMA. Unfortunately, it's not available.

    I just ordered the unlocked version from BB. I'm looking for the possibly several day battery life I'm reading about. Very much tired of my 2014 Moto X that goes through battery very quickly.

    While a stand alone wireless charging back would be nice, I'm finding the battery pack / wireless charging combo much more appealing. I want days to a full week on one charge while still using the phone, not letting it sit idle at more screen brightness.

    I don't think you will be disappointed in the battery life.

    The Quad HD screen on the Force (535ppi) vs. the 1080p on the Play (403ppi) makes a huge difference. Not to mention the 625 processor vs. 820. The 820 is power hungry and needs to be to push all those pixels. I'm not sure what Qualcom did with the 625 but it's incredibly power efficient. At the end of the day it's a trade of but for me, I'll sacrifice less pixels and camera performance for battery life.

    This is a significant improvement over the 617 which is octa a53 28nm

    Couldn't agree more. Today was a very light usage day, but this is just silly. The battery doesn't drain at all on standby. Incredible.

    Used the phone a lot more tonight. Only Twitter, Reddit and Android Central, and the whole time on WiFi, but still pretty amazing.

    You have 4 hours of screen time and 80% left? Do you have the battery mod attached?
    If not, then with battery mod, battery could last a week with at least 6 hrs screen time.

    I'm as surprised as you. No battery mod and I don't do any gaming, but it's still pretty amazing.

    Do you have location services on? Do you have location services set on the highest, most accurate setting?

    Do you use Google Now/Moto Voice?

    Not sure who you're asking, but I have everything turned on. High accuracy location, brightness at 75%, wifi and bluetooth on 24/7, moto voice always listening, etc etc.

    On 'bad' days I trend to 8 hours of SOT. On good days its over 10. (I say "trend" because I've never been able to run the phone below 40% in a single day no matter what, so I'm extrapolating from the data when I finally plug my phone in at the end of the day).

    I don't even plug my phone in when I'm navigating in the car anymore. I've done a few ~30-45 min trips with Google Maps navigating. I extrapolated out the battery loss with the screen on with Google Maps navigating from those trips and you could navigate for over 8 hours on a single charge with the screen never dimming or turning off. It's absolutely insane!

    I'm flying to NYC later today for work. If I left my charger at home I wouldn't even bother looking for a store to buy a usb c charger. I am absolutely confident I would still have plenty of battery when I get home at midnight tomorrow.

    Just goes to show what a power drain the top-of-the-line Qualcomm chips are as well as the Quad HD screen.

    1080 dpi is PLENTY resolution for a small screen. I just can't get folks fascination with "pixel" count on phones. The Apple guys got it right as they don't get all hung up on "spec wars" as they understand that overall battery life is they key combined with GREAT cameras.

    If only the Apple guys weren't so hung up on "thinness" and put bigger batteries in their phones...

    I wish more Android phones would come out with slightly lower processors, lower dpi screens, combined with BETTER CAMERAS.

    I think I read somewhere that the new Pixel phones may have slightly less resolution...Looking forward to seeing what they are doing.

    I have a Droid Turbo 2 currently. How does the Z Play camera in REAL WORLD USAGE compare to the Droid Turbo 2????

    Just thought I'd post my battery story. Bought the phone last Wed. It came with 97% battery. Day 1 was heavy use setting it up then I'm more of a light user. The battery lasted me until SUNDAY 5PM - 101 hours! Strangely, I charged it full after it went completely dead and here I am 18 hours later and its quickly down to 82% already. I did accidentally leave my Sunday TIcket app on in the background with location turned on (which I never do).

    I'd say that losing 18% battery over 18 hours of idling is still pretty darn good! One percent per hour is pretty typical of any phone, usually it's more in my experience.

    So how about it Play owners? What is your battery loss in percent per hour when the phone is idling?

    When idling nearly nothing went to bed with 99 and woke up after a long sleep with 98 ℅

    Start to think i won't need the battery Pack, going for the JBL soundboost mod instead. This phone is charging so fast also.
