    Agreed. I'm curious about the Z Play camera too? I also own a T2 and while its camera is pretty good under good lighting, it falls apart in the dark. There's no OIS and manual mode (or Hasselblad mod) to help either.

    But back to battery. I can eke out 4.5-5 hrs of SOT in a day's use, but judging from this forum this Z Play seems to be able to double that and then some which is really impressive
    You are correct on all counts. Camera is meh, but gsam has me averaging over 13 hours SOT these first 2.5 weeks I've had the phone. Obviously I never get close to seeing if that's actually true since I charge while I sleep.

    Agreed, double digits off a full charge is no problem. Under good lighting conditions, the camera performance is respectable but will suffer in low light as the T2 did.

    I hope Moto follows this forum. It's amazing that no manufacturer has combined a processor like this, a more than adequate display and a top notch camera for about $500. It would be my ideal phone and a big hit.

    I just got it a few days ago and put in Airplane mode, sleep mode, Wifi on and overnight uses 4%. Says Google services used most of it. Shouldn't the Google services go to sleep? Any setting to disable/sleep Google services?

    Sure would be nice but had Moto put at least the Force camera in the Play, no one would buy the Force much less the Z.

    What do you have syncing for Google services? Is your phone using Doze?

    At this point, it's hard to fathom that Moto is going to sell many phones at the same price point as the Samsung Galaxy, Iphone, and Google if the New Pixel is indeed priced at the premium which is the rumor.

    a 5 or 5.2" phone (yes smaller than the X Play, , perhaps the size of the original Droid Turbo), with a 625 processor, a little thicker to accommodate a bigger battery, and a DECENT CAMERA, perhaps not flagship caliber), with SD card memory expansion for about $500 would be a MONSTER SELLER. Survey after survey says the think folks want the most is battery life and camera.

    Yet manufacturers are always bringing out Quad Pixel displays, with high end processors to support 3d modeling which hardly anyone does on a phone, and phones that are too big to put an average size mans (or womans) pocket.

    The 4.7" Iphone is a monster seller. The best selling Droid that Verizon came out was probably the original Droid Turbo (way better ratings than the DT2 and CHEAPER even at release).

    Hello??? Anyone listening (meaning manufacturers)

    how does this phone compare with the droid turbo (xt1254) with battery life?

    the droid turbo has a bigger battery (3900 MAH vs 3510 MAH).

    SIGNIFICANTLY better battery life than the original Droid Turbo.

    Yes and no. Screen, software, cell signal and processor are all significant factors as well.

    I don't even bother plugging mine in at night. Use Android Auto in the car and it charges enough during commuting and other driving to keep it charged enough for me.

    Got my Z Play today at 11AM and have been playing with it all day. I'm still at 58% and have 4hrs 45min screen on time. My old Turbo 2 would be screaming for a charger after this much use. Absolutely insane. This thing's battery life is all it's cracked up to be!

    Agreed. I've had the phone for 3 weeks. Check out these averages (never once used a battery mod with this phone). The battery life is insane.

    Yep, absolute monster battery. Too bad folks are caught up in the latest flagships. Never paying attention to true winner phones like these and buying slightly upgraded iPhones each year. Even reviewers go in on the hype of flagships.

    Just got the phone yesterday and today is the first day of me using it, and all I can say is wow.

    Never have I ever had a phone come this close to this battery life. I'm at 4 hours of screen on time and still have 60% of my battery left.

    Good god man, 4 games of Hearthstone on wifi and it barely uses 2-3%. This thing is impossible to kill. I have the battery mod and I will never have to worry about forgetting to bring a charger. Never again.

    Think of battery capacity like the fuel tank in a car. With the same fuel tank size, a car getting 50mpg is going to get significantly better battery life than a 30mpg car. Even if the 30mpg car had a 10% larger fuel tank, then significantly lower fuel economy would still make it last less than the 50mpg car

    With the battery mod on I have been intentionally using the phone all day intensively, it's just disgusting how long it lasts, right now it might as well be staring me in the eyes and laugh at me for trying to drain it.

    I feel that way even without the battery mod. My Z Play without the battery mod gets the same battery life as my Z Force (work phone) with the battery mod. Just incredible.

    Yeah, it is a testament to how incredibly efficient the SoC is.
