    It's becoming quite frustrating just because it says it was released on the first for the turbo 2 and still nothing.

    I didn't think soak members were allowed to talk about it? Didnt you sign an NDA? I better report this to Lenovo/Motorola to be on the safe side...

    I can tell you this, I've never taken my phone off the charger at 630 and it now being 910 and the battery percentage still saying 100.

    Doze doing work! Have you used the phone at all during that time? My experience with the T2 is that its battery percentage drops quickly when being used. I am hoping a software update can optimize.

    I know, I am shocked that that people blatantly break rules ... From what I have heard, soak test members are not allowed to be talking about their experience. Motorola could shut future tests down for others, so I am looking out for Motorola soak testers.

    It's not like it's a secret. Much bigger things to worry about other than this.

    Still seeing typical battery drain unfortunately. Down to 82 without much use.

    If you are looking for a software update to help with battery life it typically won't.
    Most of us know this but I will state it again. 3 things majorly affect your battery life
    1. Bad cell reception
    2. Syncing date (whether foreground or in the background)
    3. Screen on time.
    For #1 if you are in going to be in a bad area for a while put your phone in airport mode until you are in a better area.
    For #2 check and regulate how often apps sync your information and set them for the minimum you can live with.
    For #3 adjust the brightness down, set your time out screen to the minimum you can live with, and when you are done looking at the screen press the power button to shut off screen (don't wait for it to time out.
    Things that have minimal effect on the battery are Bluetooth,WiFi, and GPS location. Turning them on and off will not give you any significant gain.
    JMHO

    Great post. Also, The Wirecutter in conjunction with the NY Times recently did a big study about how to best manage smartphone battery time, which reiterates all of these points, plus some others. The myths at the end are also important to read.

    Ok, the sync advice above makes sense but I'm having a tough time finding the sync settings! Under the individual app settings (like Outlook or Pushbullet), I can't find any sync settings!

    You can start with settings; accounts. That will give you some options. For mail go to the app, scroll down to settings. There will be some options in there for ya, or should be.

    Thanks I see that under the accounts settings there is a single option to turn off auto sync data for all apps. I remember my Galaxy S4 had the option for each individual app to either auto sync or manual sync and if auto was selected, how frequent.

    Yeah I'm coming for a note 4 and it seemed there were more options to select from as far as hours, sync or not sync at all BUT that could've been and probably was an android update thing.

    I just spoke with technical support and Michael out of the Alabama Support Center said that the marshmallow update will be released March 13th 2016. Apparently they had some problems with it.

    Not holding my breath on account of Michael's statement...but I'll probably stop punching the "check for updates" button over the coming week... thanks!

    Are you using Outlook for Exchange mail, or is the account POP3 or IMAP? Exchange by definition is push sync.

    Pushbullet is also by definition push, not scheduled sync. What are you using Pushbullet to do? Can you live without it?

    As I understand PB, it shouldn't consume a lot of battery, but it can in certain cases, and any app like this that is always running in the background is going to use battery. One case where it can use a lot of battery fast is if you have an app that keeps a persistent notification in the tray, but you can turn that app's notification sync off in PB settings, as I understand it. But, if you can live without PB, you may want to think about it. I'd think about uninstalling for a few days and see if you notice a significant battery difference. Unfortunately, because PB is almost always running in the background, it doesn't get reported as battery usage by the app but by Android OS or Android System - I can't remember which.

    Yeah they had to release system version 24.14.11 (previous 24.14.10). There were minor flaws such as some bluetooth connectivity issues, and speed of long press copy/paste to display. Doze mode is absolutely ridiculous. My phone drains single digit percents overnight or when not in use, and its baked into the OS automatically. You have the ability to optimize apps in battery settings. No more **** dials, when u press call you have to press again to confirm, the calling was a bit sensitive, I've had calls go through when putting my phone away too many times. Thats just a little spoiler. You have to wait until the final release to see the rest. Motorola, when they release Software, does it right. No other brand does private soak tests, so when it releases, it will be fully baked and more welcomed.

    Is there a expected release date for us that are not in the soak test?
    I dont mind waiting, just dont want to be told that its available when its really not

    Is this update expected to enable Wi-Fi calling? My workplace has poor cell reception and I need that feature.
