    Just got this phone. 3 days in, I'm averaging 27hrs with 10hrs SOT. Regardless of processors, screen resolution and sheer battery capacity, I didn't think these kind of figures were actually achievable.

    My experience with version upgrades is to do a factory reset afterwards. Start clean again and go from there. In-place upgrades have been quirky for me and hit the battery. What makes this painless is using Nova Launcher afterwards so it all looks the same afterwards.

    Mine falls about 6% at night. I'm still getting 8 to 10 hours SoT. Still very much in love with the phone.

    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.

    Hi, how did you get the "show battery percentage" option on your Moto Z Play? I don't see that on mine.

    Looks like this phone is shaping up to be a really good contender!

    Settings, battery, there is a check that says show battery percentage on status bar.

    Hi,
    I've gone to that place in my settings, but I don't see that check box option.
    Does anyone else see that?

    I have the unlocked Moto Z Play version purchased directly from Best Buy. I'm using it on AT&T currently but will be switching to Metro PCS later this week. Not sure if any of that matters.

    Thanks,

    Hi all,
    yesterday was my first day with this phone and I got 10 hours of SOT! Wow! That is without the battery mod as well. Impressive.

    However, today Google Services seems to be draining my battery faster than anything else and my battery life isn't lasting as long.
    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks.

    Give it about a week to settle down and then see what it's like

    Long press settings icon (10seconds) to get into the (hidden) advanced settings.

    You can do it from there, too then.

    System UI Tuner is the name of the hidden settings. And there you go:

    Do you have animations off in the Developer Options? If so, select 1x or 0.5x for the three of them and then try again.

    That's amazing battery life. I think in the coming weeks if they would throw in a free mod (jbl speaker or a battery) than this phones price point would be perfect.
    I got mine in black Friday through a sales rep over the phone and I got him to knock off $100 from the final price and give me the speaker, inductive charging, and regular battery mods for just the price of the speaker. If you act like your on the fence about buying it and even mention that you're leaning against it they'll throw in free stuff to seal the deal.

    What is the battery life like on LTE? I would be happy with 5.5 to 6h Screen on time on LTE.

    I logged into forum after years. I no longer own Samsung Fit. Don't know how to change my user name :/
