    Take a look? I've helped more people on this site than most of you in here. You're all coming into these threads ******** about battery because of a rough 48 hour claim. Yes, its not what you expected but unfortunately no estimates are ever as promised. We can help each other get the best battery possible for a given situation. If you're going to be away from a charger for ages than you gotta disable sync, lower brightness, etc. Or get a portable charger. I've gotten 6 hours of display time + 2 hours talk on one charge with about 10% to spare. The battery lasts as long as the Droid Maxx ever did for me.

    I get 6 hours of display time every day with a moto X with a considerably smaller battery. The turbo should get better battery life than that. It's a simple concept. Even with the higher resolution display and faster clock speed, it should be able to achieve a noticeably larger display time then that.

    I didnt say i don't like the droid turbo. But there's a problem where it's not getting the battery life it should given the specs. And pointing that out makes you very upset it appears
    I'm more upset that I spent 2 hours carrying my noobish friends in Destiny RAID and all I got was Shards when I need Raid legs, lol.

    The issue with message boards is you're taking it one way and I'm meaning it another. Vice versa on my end too. I'm making a firm point but in no way am I calling you out or trying to be an ***.

    6 hours? Wow, I have never seen someone get that. I think your phone some how got a Turbo battery, lol.

    In all seriousness I don't know why that would be. It shouldn't. Come on Lollipop!

    Oh I see, because you "help more than anyone else here" you've got a free pass to ***** at the people who are unsatisfied with the battery life claim.

    You mentioned how being on here would mean probably more than an average user. Being on here we nitpick EVERY last spec and detail down to the smallest minuta. Display resolution, processor speed, benchmarks. The details are why we discuss things here. But you're perfectly ok with being as vague with battery life as "getting through the day". Pick and choose what details you don't want to discuss.

    @Snareman If you have the "always scanning" checked the battery report will show wifi on all the time even if you've turned it off. Because it's always scanning. Unchecking that should solve the problem. In all likelihood your app is probably turning it off per your setup.

    Quite a few of us are getting 6hr SOT over 14-20 hour total up time. My moto x isn't near 11mm thick though

    I don't pick and choose a thing. If I throw 6 hours of display time on Auto brightness with Gmail sync on and Skype signed in than its lasted as much as we should expect it to. There's realistic expectations and unrealistic expectations. If you want to agree to disagree so be it. I'm leaving it there before we tear this thread apart even more.

    Haven't seen it, I've always seen complaints and that's it. I didn't go out of my way to read every thread but I did see them.

    Does that mean you're incorrect with your numbers? Yes... I mean no. (Just having some fun here). You got the numbers and for some reason the Droid is not matching up the way it should.

    I tried all of these but the Turbo keeps activating and that dang Turbo lag keeps it from unsubscribing.

    Okay, so some how I tried to incorporate turbo lag into my sentence. Fail

    That's fine. I'm not looking to tear the thread apart. It'd be much more useful to figure out why a 3900 mAh battery is underperforming. I don't think Motorola's claim of 48 hours with average use was unreasonable. ON PAPER that's what you could reasonably expect. However, the team on the field isn't performing like they do on paper. You could write it off and say "well it's good enough for me", or try to figure out if there's a way to fix it.

    I think we need to accept the short comings for now and reevaluate after Lollipop comes out. The only reason I'm saying this is I remember KitKat destroyed the Droid Maxx and people here complained that it dropped their battery life in half. I'm not sure if its still true but the past has told us that its a possibility the Turbo may too suffer from this.

    I never did care for Kit-Kats...

    All of both of your fine arguments and analogies and metaphors aside, Chris' original take on my issue is correct. I didn't buy the phone to 'get through the day'. I'm not expecting it to last 2 full days, certainly not 48h of screen time, but one of the big selling points of the phone was this big mongo battery and that feature just isn't coming to fruition for me.

    FWIW, directly from the Moto website:

    "All battery life claims are approximate and based on an average mixed use profile that includes both usage and standby time. Actual battery performance will vary and depends on many factors including signal strength, network configuration, age of battery, operating temperature, features selected, device settings, and voice, data, and other application usage patterns."

    Well after this all boils down to nothing, that's my point. We seemed to narrow down the moto x battery complaints to verizon users. Now given that the Turbo is only available on verizon there isn't a test market to compare it to. However I believe it's under performing. I'm not faulting marketing, saying anyone was lying. It SHOULD get insane battery numbers. Why isn't it? That's the question.

    Good question. And of course part of it is Verizon. My friend on Sprint gets nearly the same display time on his Note 4 that my Turbo gets. However, a Verizon Note 4 will die faster.

    I think its time for a new carrier. Battery issue solved.

    Fair enough. I mean kit kat is pretty much a hold over OS for a device built for more. But that excuse isn't going to tide over the majority of users that bought it with the pretense that it got 'insane' battery life. People get skeptical quick. Hell, you had people returning the turbo after a SINGLE day because battery life wasn't what they expected, before a single cycle and a remote chance of the battery being calibrated to the software, lol.

    Or possibly figure out WHY verizon devices are chewing through battery faster than any other carrier. I mean, sprint isn't a fair comparison. Their network doesn't allow you to use enough data to drain a battery in a day. Verizon is the largest carrier, there has to be a way to figure out what the problem is.

    Instant gratification. Thankfully I understand it or I would have been at the Acura dealer complaining that a 500 mile break in period was ridiculous.

    I'd miss out on so much if I was like that. Even if it didn't last 48 hours it still out performs every other Verizon phone. Or at least it should if everything is working properly. But hey, they went for a device that dies sooner.

    Unfortunately, there's no definite reason yet but look at this article. 3 hour disparity from a T-Mobile and Verizon S5? Ouch

    Ok, I have to call BS on this. I've been following this pretty closely, including following the long battery thread on the X'14 forum, and there simply are not "quite a few" people posting documented, routine 6hr SOT and/or 14-20 hour total time. And absolutely not both together. I welcome your screen shots to prove me wrong.

    ...adding, in no way do I mean to dis the X. In fact, most people are actually pleasantly surprised at what can be squeezed out of that phone. It can meet many people's needs - typically 2.5 to 4hrs SOT and power to get through a day. In fact, the moral in both cases - the X'14 and the Turbo -- is that battery specs alone do not tell the story.

    Lol you fell for that? You have to drive it on day one the way you're going to drive it regularly!
    But in all seriousness on my end my complaints aren't with the device itself or Motorola. It's just not matching up with it's numbers, and the network is more than likely the culprit. I'm not on verizon, but curiosity killed the cat, right?
