    I am going to have to plug my phone in.. Here is today's usage. Thank you to everyone who has offered advice I'm getting close to trying a factory reset to see if that will help. Sigh..

    Yeah your awake time is nuts. Clearly something is waking the phone constantly. Here's where I'm at today...

    I suppose it could be.

    I can't remember if you've mentioned it - Have you tried a wipe of the cache partition yet?

    Pretty happy with mine so far after a week . This is my light usage over the weekend. I usually have to charge every night during the week to keep from having to charge during the day.

    I experimented last night. The one time I didn't charge overnight, I lost 4-5% while sleeping. I setup a tasker profile to turn off auto sync over night - BAM, less than 1% lost.

    Figured I'd test this without charging overnight. It was about 30% when I went to sleep. I'd normally charge if this were the case, but I wanted to test the battery a little. I'm very content with these #'s. I was on whatsapp a ridiculous amount yesterday and this is usually a battery killer, so 5hr plus screen time considering that is impressive my opinion.

    Well my battery is doing better. I believe my go launcher was the problem. I deleted it and went with nova. I still am not getting as good of sot as I would like but my phone has been off the charger since 6am and its 11pm and I'm at 39% so much better. If people are getting crappy battery its an app. Your stats may not tell you much it becomes a bit if a guessing game to find the power sucking culprit but it can be done.

    Keep working at it...it should get much better than that. You still have a wake issue. I plugged my phone in last night after 61 or 62 hours of use with similar SOT as yours (~2 hours/day). The first 10 hours of that, I was hunting and virtually no cell signal, so it drained quite precipitously during that time.

    Thanks! Yeah i know something is still keeping it awake not sure what. Maybe Google fit. I'm just happy to get a day out if it. It does also seem to be getting better each day.

    The sad part is that it looks like the moto x play gets better average battery life. Common reports of 5-6 SOT in a day. Some up to 7-8 hours.

    That would kind of make sense given the lower resolution screen on the x play. And a lot of people seem to feel the screen is what hits the Turbo2 especially hard. It does seem like that sometimes, but by the end of my cycle, when I check my stats before bed, they just end up pretty good. Do a lot of the people who are experiencing bad SOT play a lot of games? I don't play any games really. Games always seem to crush battery, so wondering if that could be part of the issue.

    I don't play any games. I use it for facebook email etc. Today is better I'm at 59% and have been off charger sense 6a but very little screen time really. Something is still keeping it awake I can't believe its facebook but maybe. I am using a screen dimmer app and my battery still seems to go down pretty fast. But it's much better then a week ago when I got it. I feel like I trust it to get me through a day now but I would be happier if u can get over 3hrs sot. I don't think I can yet but have not had time to test it. I have only had 38 minutes of screen time but my phone has been awake for over 3.

    From my experience on the first DT, screen brightness is a huge factor in how long the battery lasts. Personally, if I have the brightness set at higher than 50%, I have problems lasting through the day. If I keep it around 25%, I can get through the day and into the next day, assuming I'm not on the phone with the screen on. I always have the adaptive brightness on. When I watch video, I turn the brightness way up to about 75%. I didn't get a phone with this nice of a screen to have it dimmed way down so I can't enjoy it. On the other hand, I don't need the brightness turned up for doing everyday stuff like messaging, fb, and web browsing wasting the battery.

    I'm the exact same way, but keep my screen at about 40%.

    I personally feel like there are software configuration issues going on with the Turbo 2 and that it should get numbers similar to the X Play. The biggest factor, hardware-wise, isn't the screen. It's the SoC. SD810 vs SD615 is a huge difference in power draw. The resolution isn't going to affect it too much in normal usage, honestly.

    So after more investigation I think I have my battery issues fixed. It's 3:15 pm and I have 73% battery life left. My advice to those who are still not getting great stats. Disable Verizon bloat. I disabled Verizon cloud and security and that seemed to really help I had gotten rid of the other stuff earlier. I also have google fit for syncing data from my polar watch. I kept google fit but turned off the tracking. I might try turning it back on to test after a few days. I agree with the above poster I think there are some software issues between Verizon's crap and moto. I still need to see how much sot I can get. My battery would be even better today but I was in a restaurant for lunch and it had bad signal and my phone worked hard for an hour, but that happens. I am happier and happier with this phone. I just don't think Verizon's and moto's software is playing nicely together.

    The Verizon bloatware issue is a crime. They charge high end dollars for this phone and they still have to get subsidies from the bloatware makers? Ridiculous.

    So my Turbo is getting eh battery life. I took it off the charger at 730am this morning and it's 130pm and I am at 75%. I don't think it's that great, but what apps can I disable that is bloat that would help me?

    Start with Verizon apps. I deleted all games and then disabled the cloud and security and whatever else I don't use. I also disabled Dt light or I think that was the name. My phone was off charger at 6:15 this morning at at 1:30 its at 81%. I have not used it a ton though. I am not impressed with sot so far but I have not tested it completely. I would also check the update times of any apps such as weather or Twitter. The more often they update the more your phone is awake.

    DT Ignite. It's a backdoor for Verizon to install apps without your permission, and will reinstall them if you remove them while not disableing DT Ignite.

    Ignite! I knew I was close. Yes I looked it up when I saw it in my app use list I was happy to disable it.
