    Here they are. Typically when I first open Gsam, my mA are 1200+. Pics I've seen here are much lower. Don't know if it is significant or not.

    The android system is using most of the battery, which could be location settings, the moto active display, the wifi settings. all of that. So far what have you disabled? as far as settings

    Holy smoke! How tbe heck are you getting times like that?! I've had it since 10/31. Haven't done any full power cycles - I'm on call a lot so I'm a little afraid of needing it suddenly. Lowest I've gotten is like 14%

    What else do I need to disable? Only thing I'd like to keep active are the screen sensors - which is probably the biggest offender.

    yeah eventhough you shouldn't have to comprise to get good battery. I've disabled location services, changed some of the wifi settings, disabled the account syncing, and the moto always listening and always on features. I've also done 3 or 4 full charging cycles. meaning using the phone as normal letting it die then fully charging it back to 100 without using it. I know there's been articles online about how not to let it discharge fully and some that says it doesn't affect it in a bad way, but I based it off prior knowledge and did the discharge and it actually helped. At first my battery was terrible too getting around 16hrs with 5 hours of screen on time and idle time was bad too

    Thanks. I cant do without account syncing either unfortunaltely. I haven't seen any suggestions on altering the Wi-Fi settings. What did you do?

    I can understand turning off features if you don't like them, but having to do that to save on battery kind of defeats the purpose of having a phone with them in the first place.
    I wish that I could keep every feature on and get the battery life expected with this phone, but it appears that isn't possible. None of the features I personally disabled outweigh the benefits of the improved battery life. I love the moto suite of apps and have most of them enabled, but I can certainly live without swiping my hand over the phone to stop my alarm or shutdown an incoming call. I do like the the active display turning on when I bring my hand towards the phone, but if it's affecting battery life to the point that I can't get a full day using my phone the way I need to without charging it, then I'll happily forgo it.

    I am on a 32 hour battery pace and I'm pretty happy with that. I have 32 apps disabled. Also turned off the infrared sensors. That helped but I might go back to it.

    Edit: it seems like the battery keeps getting better. On a 40 hr pace now.

    I realize that people run different apps than I do that might consume more battery and various screen on time, but I haven't turned off anything. I don't use Command Center. I have read that it's a battery hog. That's not why I don't use it. I just don't like it. Anyway, with everything turned on, I have never had less than 32 hours off a full charge to less than 10%. Highest was 42. Currently, 26 hours unplugged with 55% battery left. Don't understand why many of you get so much less.

    Here's my latest. I won't complain. Watched amazon video during train ride friday, played some games, used google maps for a trip saturday. Other than that general internet use, news and such. I'm pretty happy with it. I don't need apps syncing in the background and that saves a ton of battery. I use tasker to regulate it. I started with auromateit but switched. These settings are not for everybody.

    I disabled command center, which I could care less about, in conjunction with a few other things, so although my battery life has improved significantly, I can't be sure what exactly to attribute it to. Is it a combination of everything, or is it one thing in particular, namely the command center widget? I guess, now that I'm done with the command center, I'll start turning other things back on to see if the battery remains as good as it is now. And if I turn them back on one at a time, then I'll be able to potentially pinpoint what's causing problems. The only things I disabled is: location (cause I can turn back on easily if I need it), the wave to silence, and approach to turn on moto display. I do like the approach to turn on the moto display feature, I'm not going to lie.

    Turning off the "Approach" Moto Action as well as the attentive display seems to have made all of the difference in the world for me. Also disable the always listening voice commands. Still have Moto Display activated for the notifications, and all seems good now. I'm getting 36-40 hours pretty consistently.

    Thanks and no problem. The first is the display state triggers. The second is what happens when the display shuts off. Then I have it also set up to reverse the first set of actions and connect when the screen is activated. I just dont like the background stuff running if I am not using it. Post yours so I can compare please. I am actually new to Tasker and have a lot to learn I am sure.

    I just have it set up when not on wi-fi, screen off and on same mobile data triggers as you. As well as when connected to wifi, always mobile data off. Any reason why my held awake time is so high? I turned a ton of settings off, no syncing, apps dont auto update etc. turned wifi off in deep sleep. location services off. Attentive Display as well.

    Lower left side of the Gsam screen. Looks like a vacuum, app sucker. Check there and see. Maybe theres an app running when you dont know that it is. There is also a thread in here somewhere that lists apps that can be disabled. That helps alot too. Hope this helps a bit.

    Battery life has completely settled in. I'm ready to say that the battery on this phone is superior to the Maxx.

    My wakelocks look the same except the third one down which is related to your wireless signal. I dont use wireless very much really. Charge to 100 tonight then unplug and leave it alone. Then check the wakelocks in the am and see what it is then.
