    I've also taken the update without issue.

    Some things I've done are as follows:

    Google settings - turn off both options listed in android device manager. Turn off location reporting and location history under Google location reporting. I leave mode set to high accuracy for other apps.

    Moto settings - I leave Moto display active but turn off Moto actions. I don't need motion and those sensors eat battery.

    Here's what my drain looks like right now.

    I am pulling my hair out with this phone. I am getting worse life with the DR than the DM. I mean seriously worse life. Prior to today I have done the following:
    • Disabled the bloatware, though I do use amazon, a lot
    • I always use wifi when I have a connection and turn it off when there isn't one
    • GPS is always turned off unless I need it
    • Yes BlueTooth is always on. I use my headset all the time
    • I have minimzed my twitter and FB notifications
    • I do have 4 gmail accounts and I get a fair number of emails and notifications a day
    • Location Reporting and history is off for the phone
    • Display was already set to auto and off after 30 seconds


    Today I have done the following additional steps based on what I have seen in this thread:
    • Moto settings - I leave Moto display active but turn off Moto actions. I don't need motion and those sensors eat battery.
    • Deactivated most of the display notifications opitons
    • Turned off Actions except for shake to take a picture
    • Disabled droid Zap
    • Disabled attentive display
    • Diabled apps such as auidbel, all verizon apps, softcard, slacker, google foreign keyboards, motorola flip case

    So I am hoping like crazy that this helps. Based on what I am seeing in Gsam I am having a ton of wake locks. Let's see how things go. In the mean time here are 3 days and a partial days worth of battery stats

    I've come to terms with the fact that the only way to get good battery life with the turbo is to handcuff your phone and turn off all fun features.

    I think moto screwed up somewhere with the software and there's something sucking the battery when it shouldn't.
    Yes. The phone is supposed to be 48h (I know its a marketing ploy) of USE. I shouldn't have to cripple my phone to get great battery life.

    I was always amazed at the battery on my Maxx and just had the idea to compare the battery stats to my Turbo. Turns out the Maxx was only 3h better. Not quite as much as I thought it would be, but it always felt like it a lot lasted longer.

    Maxx
    Battery Life: 1d 9h (10:54 active)
    Screen On: 3h 41m (4h 7m Max)

    Turbo
    Battery Life: 1d 6h (12h 41m active)
    Screen on: 3h 55m (2h 56m Max)

    Today was my best charge as far as screen on time goes. I could probably get 48 hours if I were a light user.

    Now THAT is what I call OPTIMIZED!
    Nice!

    PS. Since you're mostly on Wifi, what is your avg 1x signal strength in dBm when you get a chance to check?

    This'll be a no help to anybody ;-), but since it's on-topic..

    I don't know if the original recorder of that video a few posts back is reading, but a HUGE thank you to him for putting that together. What a great help that was. I started snooping around and saw I has Zap turned on.. What the heck was I thinking? No use for it whatsoever as no one I know personally also has this phone. So I've now turned off Moto motion sensors, Zap, and disabled many apps. Looking forward to what this day brings.

    Looks like 1x is -84dBm. I don't have all the stuff turned off that everyone else does. I have location services on high accuracy but turned off Google location reporting and Android device manager tracking. Disabled all the bloatware, and turned off Moto action but left Moto display active. I'm going to do another run on 4G only and see how much that lessens my battery life.

    I also have driving mode in Moto assist off. I find that constantly checks your location so I only enable it when I need it.

    Getting great battery life today and don't understand what could be causing the difference. I've been monitoring my wake locks and see that they're almost half of what they've been everyday this week. What could cause this type of variation? The MSM one that's listed 2nd has been a particularly bad offender all week with almost 2 hours and over 5,000 wakes each day. Today it's at like 1,300 wakes. The only thing I've done differently is not clear my cache. I usually do that every night, but I've now gone 2 days without doing so.

    I dont think the msm wakelock is one that anything can be done about. If you highlight it and select it the next screen has a google me button. The second result is a pretty good explanation. Has to do with your device communicating with a tower basically. Maybe the stronger the signal strength the less there are but I honestly dont know.

    Here's my 4G results. I wasn't in a great coverage area. I would say my average 4G signal was about 103dBm.

    I don't think he need to photoshop it. If you turn off network data battery life is amazing. Just to test it out since I was home weekend long I had wifi on and network data turned off. I managed almost 8 hrs of SoT over 18 hrs(lots of youtube and clash of clans).

    So if he's turn off data and just spend his time on wifi reading a book or surfing the web then he can easily beat my 8 hrs.

    Draw back to not having network data on is you can't get MMS, you can still get SMS but can't reveive group text or images. Once you turn network data back on then those missed MMS get downloaded.
    I downloaded macrodroid app and have it set up to turn 4G on when screen is on and when screen is off turn 4G on at 1hr interval to sync and get MMS.
    We'll see how battery life is with this set up.

    Haha. I didn't see this one. Stop being a clown and mind your own business. I don't need to photoshop anything and don't need your jack off comments because I'm trying to show and help other maximize their battery while keeping most of their functions working.

    I don't turn off network data but do have Wifi always on selected. When you're connected to Wifi 4G isn't used with the exception of MMS and Visual Voicemail. I do turn off background Sync between midnight and 8AM as I'm usually sleeping.

    I know data doesn't flow through 4G if wifi is on, but I think you still lose some battery because the 4G radio is on? I do have a bunch of other tweaks going so I'm not entirely sure if having 4G radio turned of is the main result of the extra 2hrs of SoT for me. Next weekend I will leave 4G on and see. Glad to see that you left your on and still manage awesome battery life.

    I don't think it is but I could be wrong. Basing my opinion on the fact that if you're connected to Wifi and you go to about phone / status mine says mobile network state disconnected. That being said that's why I don't bother to turn it off at all.

    Cross-check GSam Stats with Process Stats in Developer Options, because they give different readings. The built-in regular battery stats differs from GSam as well. It comes down to the way things are categorized. I had a post up about the discrepancies in battery reporting showing this: http://forums.androidcentral.com/mot...y-vs-gsam.html.

    Facebook and Facebook messenger D - STROY your phone with kernel wake-locks. Open up the Facebook app in Applications and take a look at the running processes. GSam won't show that. It shows Facebook as being low, because it's showing the app usage. This goes for other apps as well. The kernel wake-locks in GSam are bundled together, so there is no way of telling which app is impacting the kernel.

    I recently went through every Facebook setting for their mobile app and have kept the drain down to a minimum. I took off location for both Facebook app and Messenger, I chose it to notify me only when people post on my wall, etc...

    Though I already know the FB app's rep for battery and resources hogging, I still wasn't able to wrangle it in to submission. No matter what I tried with settings it would keep waking itself back up. I installed Greenify to Hibernate it and it was still coming on pretty regularly. Ultimately, while I like the conveniences it provides within Android (for posting articles to your wall, for excample), it isn't worth it. I uninstalled and so far the difference in battery has been very notcable. It's only been a day, though.

    My main concern has been that I, too, had better battery life with my Droid Maxx. So, I have been comparing my use and apps phone to phone. I had FB installed on the Maxx, too.

    Something is definitely up with Cell Standby. Many have higher usage in their battery stats than they did previously (again for me this was with the Maxx). It's possible that they optimized other things so that CS is only higher by comparison, while using roughly the same amount of juice. Or, it may be it needs a tweak or two for optimization.

    I'm a huge fan of Better Battery Stats. I've been using it since first release on XDA and bought the paid version. The only issue with using it on my Turbo is it requires root to really get the most out of it. As you mentioned with cell standby on the Maxx vs Turbo, all phones categorize processes differently regarding battery drain. Whatever is making cell standby so high on the Turbo isn't an issue other than part of the classification was bundled with another category on the Maxx such as "Android OS" or "Android System".

    I have been debating removing Facebook from my phone. Currently, I took off notifications for all app requests, and friend requests/acceptances. With push notifications at a minimum, the battery drain was cut my a significant amount. However, Facebook and its Messenger drain so much battery, that even with the noteworthy savings, it still is at a high.

    Facebook is just one of the apps that have battery drain processes that aren't explicitly shown in battery stat apps. Depending on what is installed on the phone, there may be many others that will have drainage tacked on to another category, disguising themselves as a benign and regular performing app.

    I was disappointed at first with battery but I disabled all bloatware and turned off wifi notications. Yesterday, I was on pace for more than 6 hours screen time over course of 16hr "battery day". When I went to bed, phone was at 20% and I was 5+hrs screen time.

    That is significantly better than I ever saw on my Note 3 and slightly better than what I got on my rooted Note 2 running CLEAN rom.

    I decided to do an extreme battery length test over the weekend. I had signal completely shut off at night from 2200-0700 hrs. I also had it on 3g for about 24 hours of this. I don't plan to plug it in until tonight. I will never complain about this battery. I know someone will complain about me shutting the signal off or not using it to its potential. Everyone uses it differently and normal use for me is 40+ hrs. And some will complain the screen time isn't enough. I didnt use it that much over the weekend. I did watch about 1gb of video over the though. Last warmer weekend and had stuff to do. So enjoy.
