    Casual weekend use after I got past the "I can't put it down" part. Normal weekday use will be more but this was also to point out the mediocre cell service I get at home and still going. Overnight lost maybe 2%.

    I disabled Moto things so it doesn't wake up when I walk past it. Also disabled location and Bluetooth for half the weekend just to see if I could get it to crack 48 hours which it easily will at this point.

    Sync is set to all the time whenever it wants. Brightness set to auto.

    Huge disappointment.. 8+ hours of my "normal" use (power user) now at 20 ‰
    Up till today I was getting great life of 18+ hours. Never did stream Netflix like I was planning to tonight.

    Maybe I should have gone with my first choice before the Turbo of the LG G3..

    Sorry for red screens using app called Twigs light which works like f.lux on a PC.

    Hey folks. I've been using the Turbo since launch day and I've just about got it tuned how I want it battery-wise. The last thing I'm fighting with is the Amazon app. This screenshot is from a near-full charge before I went to sleep last night. Is there anything I can do short of disabling it to prevent this kind of drain? Is anyone else seeing this kind of ridiculous percentage?

    I use Tasker to disable background data from 10pm-6am. I usually lose between .5 and .75% battery during that time. If I read that screen shot correctly you are losing about 5% per hour. I would look at something like Tasker or Greenify. I disabled alot of stuff but not the amazon apps. I use them. But i have not had any of them use that much battery especially at night. Hope this helps.

    Everyone talks about disabling all this stuff at night, but I don't get the point of that. Sure, I'm asleep at night, but thats also when the phone is charging. What's the point of disabling things to save battery while the phone is charging??

    Not everyone charges at night. I usually charge at my desk and sometime don't plug it in at all for a day.

    Well for me its simple. I dont charge everynight. I charge when it needs it. I dont think the phone should have to be charged everynight. Some phones yes but not this one. I usually only use about 3% to 7% at night with my settings. I think another reason would be for data control. I held onto my unlimited plan but some dont have that. But that would not matter to some using wifi. I just have an issue also with apps running in the background. It syncs everything in the morning as soon as I wake up.

    I too am having trouble with the Amazon app since last update which is a shame since I love that app. Seems to work hard in the background when not in use, assuming you just open the app once. Hopefully problem will be fixed.

    What is your screen brightness set at?

    What is your location services setting?

    Also, I would advise anyone getting less than expected battery life to run the battery down to about 20%, do a hard shutdown, then plug it in until it charges to 100% (preferably overnight). Sometimes the battery meter and actual charged state of the battery get out of sync giving inaccurate readings. A hard power off and a full charge should coordinate the battery with the battery meter.

    Phone is only four days old. I ran it down to 21% then charged it overnight. Then ran it down to what you see in the screen grabs. The only battery saving maneuver I made so far was to set location services on "battery saver". My screen brightness setting is at about 40%. I should have been able to get 48 hours out of it. Can't complain.

    I've got a question for everybody. I was watching this YouTube video in which the person said whatever it says that he's getting over a day of battery power from the battery stats but generally everything in the modal voice section of the phone... Meaning me sensors that give you the nice moto display he also the same boat. Has anyone else disabled that option in the Moto display at all? My feeling is that that's the core feature of this phone. I love that feature on the son of waving your hand to activate the Moto display, and doing the quick gesture for the camera etc cetera. What do you guys have thoughts about this? I suppose it comes down to awesome moto droid turbo features vs battery power although I'm not sure that these particular features are draining so much considerable battery power as other features are. I think I got a defective battery in my current phone & I am DOA ing , so I want to put this question the meantime.. Of course all my stupid apps are disabled what does everyone keep their brightness setting on ? I mean we have a proximity / light sensors so I just keep mine on automatic leave my wifi off unless I need simultaneous voice and data at the same time while I'm on a phone call until our phones are volte capable of course... I'm just looking to maximize the most amount of power possible of course thank you.

    PS, I should let you know that so far I've been averaging about 19 to 21 hours I'm single charge. However, I had been seeing other people like that YouTube video where they're getting over a days worth of battery I'm very moderate usage which gets me wondering.

    I also have unlimited data, but when I'm at home its connected to wifi anyway so I wouldn't worry about it anyway. I used to think that phones didn't need to be charged every night when I had a Blackberry, but with these 'modern' phones they seem to require charging every day and sometimes even more frequently. If I charged just when it needed it I am likely to not be near a charger or to have the time to let it sit and charge. I guess I'm just not a risk taker like that. To each his own on when you charge your phone, but I like starting out the day with a fresh battery, sort of like taking a shower in the morning, and I know at night it has plenty of time to sit there and get a full charge.

    I agree with you in the fact of starting your day with a fresh battery charge regardless of what phone it is.

    Why is your GSam taking up almost 9% after almost a full day of use?

    Good question.. Might be because I check it regularly. I just made it show in my notifications so will see over the next few days.

    After this debauchery.
    I shut down the phone did a partition wipe and rebooted the phone.
    Going from there.

    That's a good start. Disable some carrier apps if you don't use them as well. Is your brightness on Auto or higher? Having over 4 hours of screen time with 22% left isn't bad. That is on pace with your average screen time per charge of 5 & 1/2 hours. I'm sure with a bit of tweaking you can push that over 6 hours, but even with 5 hours of screen time you are getting more than almost every smartphone on the market. Do you have Facebook installed? What do you have syncing and how often? Do you have Google + photo uploads set on? If so, is it set to WiFi only or mobile network as well? These are just some of the many factors that affect battery life. I notice that you play puzzle quest. Games are also a big drain. Although it shows 3.5%, the time that you game on your phone is very intense. Not checking GSam compulsively will also give you more battery, as 9% is very high for that app alone.

    Have u not seen my battery stats and posts in the last few pages? I've been getting awesome battery life with always over 6 to 7hrs of screen time and I have Moto Display active. If you download the GSam battery app you will see that moto display is using very little battery. If you get a chance u should download it and check it out.

    The thing I see affecting battery life the most is cell standby. The idle time on this phone isn't that great. So the off screen battery drain is pretty poor. If it had good idle time I bet I could hit 10hrs of screen time with no issues. I'll repost my screenshots and you will see that in app sucker, moto display isn't even on the list cause it used very little and is further down on the list. Again the Moto Display is no where near a battery killer. 6hrs of screen time over almost a 40hr run, not many phones can do that especially running these specs.

    That one day plus of battery power do, is that average normal for you? Also, is that under moderate usage or light usage or heavy usage?

    I assume this can't be a good sign. I've had a few issues over the past few days. A few days ago it stuck at 100 percent for most of the day. Yesterday I went down to 28 percent and then just suddenly died and when I plug it back in was instantly at 100 percent. So last night I wiped the cache and charged to 100% and then just let it sit idle overnight to see what would happen . It was down to 70% in 2 hours and then 28% this morning. Does it seem worth calling a warranty replacement in on?

    I would say moderate usage. This is my first time actually taking a screenshot and monitoring the battery performance which is why I am asking if its pretty good. I see a ton of people on here getting 5-6 hours of screen time. My Brightness slider is at about 20%
