    For those using the Moto Z Play for 8 months or more would like to receive their feed-back on current battery life. Is is still the same or do you feel that battery is deteriorating with use? I am thinking about to buy one, special now that Z2 Play is available so Z Play price is dropping and I do not feel so much differences between both (apart from better camera and smaller battery on Z2 Play).

    Thank you.

    I have original Z Play. I don't feel battery life has decreased at all. If so it's not noticeable. Still go 2 days without any issues.

    I used to go 10 hours sot last fall. Now it tops out at around 7-7.5 hours sot.

    My battery life has decreased noticeably, although it's still an endurance champ and is impossible for me to kill in a day. Not sure if it's because the battery is aging or because I upgraded to nougat and didn't factory reset...

    I'm still able to get 10-11 hours of screen time after months with the phone.

    No issues here. Same as before. Can easily get over 10hrs SOT with high accuracy on.

    I see a noticeable drop in battery life- maybe because of the number of apps I've accumulated since I've gotten the phone but the SOT is generally the same but the battery life has dropped by a third I would say.

    I came from an S7 Edge that has the same battery that needed charging a couple times a day.. The Play lasts a lot longer, possibly due the processor..

    My battery life dropped slightly when I upgraded to Nougat, but it's still incredible.

    I felt like I noticed a drop when I first upgraded or may have a rare random day where it isn't as high for whatever reason, but have since been pretty much seeing what I was getting before.

    I just purchased this phone and am super impressed with the battery life.

    I get 7.5 hours screen on time with very heavy use (lots of gaming and camera usage).

    Picked up for $AUD380, easily the best value option around.

    Since i upgraded to 7.1.1 i feel Like the battery took a hit. Standby time is still great i can get through 2 days without charging but i think that the screen on time doesnt get as high as it used to. Now i dont know if this is because of the long Standby time or if the Update generally reduced battery Life.

    Not much SOT because I haven't used it a lot.

    Interesting. Look at your screen time to power ratio vs. mine. I run my brightness on auto.

    This is my battery life from today. Well yesterday to just a few minutes ago. Most of the screen time was streaming YouTube.

    Hi guys, I have recently purchased this phone about a month ago after hearing about its battery life. So far I keep getting between 7-11 hours of screen on time per charge, which is really fantastic. I originally intended this as a second phone to my G6 but I have been using this phone more than the LG instead now.

    11 hours SOT...nice. I use the Z Play mostly for WhatsApp and streaming Netflix with the occasional YouTube and browsing.
