    Based upon others feedback, my experience seems to be more common than his.

    Thanks for sharing. That was the impression I had from the few people I know who had the device.

    To the point about idle drain, the T2 is definitely the best phone I've ever had in that department. I think the question is how it fairs with the screen on and a lot of activity. Here's what I'm getting today, which I'm very happy with. Been on email a lot today and that has always drained my previous phones.

    I know its only been a few days but my battery life is horrible. I turned off Bluetooth and this afternoon I cleared the cache for apps and when into the recovery mode and cleared them there as well. Hoping that will help otherwise I will try a factory reset. Just can't figure out what is draining it so fast.

    I don't mean to post so much just trying to figure out why my phone is getting such bad battery life. Those that are getting good battery results are you using moto assist or any of the features? I turned moto assist on because it was part of the reason I got the phone and they talked about how it uses less processer power or something. So was curous those who are getting good sot what moto features do you have turned on? Thanks!

    You're certainly not the only one, I just restarted my phone and lost 6%!!! Not going to get even 18 hours out of mine today. Frustrating.

    My Note 3 always lost quite a bit on restart I hated that! All I know is if I can't get this phone to go more than 12hrs without needing a charge when I am not a heavy user its going back before my 2 weeks are up. I am very disapointed right now.

    Look at your awake time in post #52...your phone is awake nearly all the time. It's not as bad as mine was before my factory reset, but still pretty bad. Something (I'm guessing a rogue app) is keeping your phone awake and your battery is suffering. Your network signal is also a bit sketchy for a fair amount of the day.

    Can't do anything about the signal live in an area with low signal. I cleared my app cache I also reset the cache in recovery mode. I think it helped. Otherwise I will do a factory reset. Ugh..

    Here is how it looks after clearing the cache and charging it to 100%. I used it for almost a hour to see how the battery did. It does not seem to be dropping as fast. I also have the app doze on it to help with background apps but not sure how well its working. I really did not expect this much trouble. I swear every Motorola phone I have had gives me issues. My note 3 was pretty good to me. O well.

    I feel bad for anyone who's not getting good battery life. I'm honestly at a loss. If any of you who are not satisfied have only had it for a couple days, I'd implore you to give it a few more. Honestly I've been giving a lot of props of late to the Droid Maxx for having the best battery life I've ever experienced, but I'm starting to waiver on that given the battery life I've been getting here. I think this is the first phone I've legitimately felt torn about whether or not I should charge it overnight. I've been going to bed just under 50% after a full day of use with nearly 3 hours SOT. I just don't use my phone for 6 hours in a given day, but after 2 weeks with this phone, I feel like it's improving every day.

    You have to give the battery at least 4-5 cycles to get a good idea where you are at. Usually once they are broken in you should see a 20-40% increase, so don't pass judgement too quick. If its still bad you either have a bad signal or a rogue app. I think this phone should get 36 hours of moderate use legit. I'm getting all day use from 9am to 11pm, then into the next day around 5-6pm I need to charge it again but thats 32 without really tweaking it down yet.

    As others have said, you definitely have a badly behaving app (or apps) combined with poor cell signal. Your phone is awake most of the time, which is a sure sign of a bad app. What does GSam show as your top app as far as batt usage? You need to root out which app(s) is causing wakelocks on your phone. If you can't figure which apps are sucking the juice, I would do a FR and then carefully reinstall apps one by one, watching for batt usage.

    Gunner is correct; it will get better. I've tested lots of devices and the first few days are always worse.

    I was getting around 36 - 40 hrs batt life over the long holiday weekend (on wifi most of the time). This past week, I've been using the phone more heavily, and I'm down to about 19 - 20 hrs batt life. Hoping that gets back up over 24 hrs with 6.0.

    Your phone is awake all the time, even when your screen is off. That is a big battery killer. There's an app or two running in the background that's preventing your phone from sleeping and saving battery. Also, your phone was in a relatively poor service area, that is a battery killer also, so hopefully you aren't always in poor service area because you'll never get great numbers.

    Poor signal is my life I live in UP of Michigan. This phone is doing better with signal then my note 3. I am aware the phone is awake. If android had not gotten all jerky about wake lock permissions I would have figured this out already. The only other thing is I do have Moto assist on. But I would think it would not be keeping it on that much. I'll figure it out at some point. I'm more frustrated that I can't just see what is awake with out root.

    My initial thought was the same, but GSAM is only showing 2% battery use from "held awake", so I'm not sure it's just a wakelock issue. Unfortunately, Android doesn't give you enough information to pin down which apps are causing the wakelocks (without rooting the phone). I kind of understand it, but I still think it's too bad they took that away with KitKat.

    [edit] By the way, I think it goes without saying that the phone is awake during phone calls, even with the display off. The same goes if you are listening to media with the display off. So, if those periods of awake with the screen off on weatherlover1's battery graph coincide with phone calls or with periods of listening to music with the display off, then everything is normal.

    I don't believe the phone has a 3g antenna I know the turbo 1 doesn't
    The Turbo 2 has 3G, just like all Verizon phones.

    Does anyone have an idea about how this Doze feature in M is going to affect the Moto features? Wouldn't Doze negate all of the wake screen notifications that Moto offers? I guess if it also sets other apps to "sleep" then it would help though.

    I don't, but I heard that we'll lose moto assist in the upgrade.

    That makes sense given that Assist mainly is tied with "sleeping", which I have read is the purpose of Doze.

    Yeah, UP is sparse. Have you disabled all the bloat? Uninstall apps you don't need or use. Set longer refresh periods for apps like weather etc. Turn off notifications you don't need. And dim the screen. I have screen on lowest setting for a good chunk of the day. It's still plenty bright for most occasions other than outside.

    Where did you hear that? Moto assist is a big feature. I don't see it disappearing. I am pretty sure they can work with the software to not turn assist off. But I have been wrong many times. 😁

    Its doing better today. I'm at 70% after using my phone a fair bit while out and about. Yes I uninstalled none needed apps or disabled them. Messed with my sync on most apps though I may double check them again.

    I don't expect 48hr life I just want to take it off the charger at 6am and not need to give it juice until 10p. I use my phone enough I don't expect magic with battery but u was expecting better then my note 3 and so far it's not. I'll give it a few days.

    Yes I keep my screen at minimum setting unless outside. Thus screen is way brighter than my note 3!
