    Real nice! It's such a free feeling knowing I'll never have to charge in the middle of the day no matter what I do.

    The novelty has worn off and now I just cruise around knowing I don't even have to THINK about charging for a couple of days. Love this phone. Pretty much ideal for my usage. Gotta find a screen protector for it, though.

    The Zagg is really good. I just wish it covered the top of the screen, but I guess that's tricky because of the sensors.

    I'm new to the Play, but not the forum. I had a Moto X (2014) prior. I received my new phone this past Friday evening (10/7). Opened to find the battery at 94%. Began setting up accounts and turning EVERYTHING on. Didn't plug it in because I wanted to start training the battery right away (I know some think that is a myth, but I do it anyhow ). My goal is to let it drain to ~10%, then fully charge for at least the first 3 cycles. Saturday was spent downloading and transferring files. Watching videos and surfing the web for phone-specific tips. I'm a huge customizer, so I spent a lot of time setting up my theme and gestures in Nova. Received a security patch too. I literally had to keep hammering this thing to finally get it to 10%. Now on my second day with almost 7 hours SOT with ~40% left.

    Yep, battery life on this thing is kind of nuts.

    Every 2-3 days, I'm reminded how amazing this battery is. Best so far, 50 hours, 9.5 hours Screen, 3 hours Bluetooth calling.
    That's with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS all on all the time.

    My stats for today. Also, check out the averages over the past month. Lenovo really killed it with the Z Play.

    I know this is Z Play forum but even my Moto E which is 2 yrs old at this point and has just 1980 mah battery on KitKat 4.4.4 gives just as good battery life as Z Play.


    So if Z Play had a 720p screen and smaller display, battery life would have been out of this world.

    So its basically down to low resolution screen and battery efficient kitkat OS. So imagine if Z Play had a 720p screen and kitkat, it would provide probably more than 15 hours of SOT. Amazing.
    You did this over 14 hours. With the Z Play, I'd get that much SOT over 3 days, so there is a pretty big difference.

    Yeah i agree. Over 2-3 days i get 5-6 hours. Z Play is much better i agree.

    I call BS. The Z Play can achieve that much SOT over 24 or more hours, while your E did it over 14 hours. I bet if you stretched it out over 2 days you wouldn't get anywhere near that amount of SOT.

    Why are you even here?
    Yeah you're right but no need to get angry. I was just comparing battery life between old Moto phones vs new Moto phones and that Moto phones are usually great in battery life due to minimal bloat+ stock Android although with 720p screen and smaller display but same battery capacity it would have broken all records probably.

    The MXPE unfortunately is weak in battery which led me to the Z Force, although I'd happily take the Z Play which I got for my wife.

    If you don't need financing (or if you do you can get it from Moto Direct) you can buy it cheaper from Verizon, it's unlocked, and has the all the bands for ATT & TMo and worldwide use. It's only $408 direct from Verizon.

    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????
    Except, just like with cars, they wouldn't be able to charge max profit. They put all of the best tech (especially the camera) in the highest end phones, with ridiculously oversized resolution (I notice little to no difference with the 1440P displays on my LG G4 and Moto Droid Turbo). The best and most notable jump in display quality was from 800x480 of my Droid Inc 2 to the 720P of Galaxy S3. Didn't see much difference in the jump from 720P to 1080P on the LG G2 and S4. And certainly don't see much difference from 1080P (of G2 and S4) to 1440P.

    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)
    I picked up the Turbo on clearance from Verizon for $199 full price and am still using it. Great Battery Life, OK camera. The 805 is a very good processor and no idea how long it will work but in no hurry to get a new one.
