    Mine seemed significantly better day 1 after the update. The last 2 days, it's seemed a little worse.

    I've been chatting on whatsapp a lot- more than usual - but it seems like it's been using the battery up quicker than it did before the update.

    This is one of the things that drives me so crazy about this phone. The battery life is just so darn inconsistent. I had my droid Maxx for a year and rarely went under in 50% an entire day. With this phone I have been using it in the same way in the same places and with the same apps and some days I stay above 50% and some days like today I am down in the 20s after just 10 hours from a full charge.

    These are my results today. This is after the recent OTA update and a cache wipe. Yesterday I was at our other hospital location where I generally have a worse signal and I came home after 10 hours with around 60% battery left.

    I never used to think twice about charging my Maxx extra during the day, but now I feel like I am a regular smartphone user with a mediocre battery and I have to worry about charging it all the time so it unexpectedly quickly die on me.

    Ideas? Does that belong wakelock results have something to do with it.

    I have been having issues trying to clear my cache.. Following the Web directions and forum instructions.

    Hold Volume Down + Power (on)
    Choose Recovery and click Power
    Hold Volume Up for 15 to 20 seconds....

    What am I missing. I sometimes get to the Android on its side with no words on screen but can't pull up clear cache from there and it auto reboots if you wait took long.

    After you see the little android guy, hold the volume up and tap the power key. That should bring you to a menu and clear cache is at the bottom.

    You have to log on to MyVerizon and add it to you account via the "change features" tab. Then you will be able to turn it on through your phone.
    Ah, thanks for that! Somehow that's all gotten by me this week.

    Now let me ask this of those whose battery has improved since the update: has activating the feature with Verizon made the difference? Or have you had only just received the update and seen the difference?

    Ok, there's a snag for me. It looks as if I would have to get rid of the new caller ID name feature in order to have HD calling. Naa. Rather have the caller ID I think.

    Verizon is going to start charging you extra after the first 30 days for that caller name ID that they try to shove down everyone's throats.

    Yeah, I've been through the trial period and AM paying for it. I like it and wanna keep it - it's already saved me from answering a few calls I preferred to avoid. ;-)

    There's a few - which do you mean? I was using Truecaller for a while but I believe that just does an Internet lookup - which may not be reliable for obvious reasons..

    My understanding is that if you want any functionality at all from it past the trial period then you have to pay.

    There is still a step missing in these instructions. The very first instruction should state to get your reading glasses first before starting.

    noob question what does droid turbo battery do?
    I'm not bashing, so don't take offense, but asking a question like this shows you clearly have made no effort to learn about this phone or "the turbo battery". In this case, you don't even have to painstakingly search through the forum to find your answer; just do a google search on "Motorola Droid Turbo Review", and read a review of the phone; 90% of your questions about the phone and why the battery is special will almost certainly be answered. If you are really interested in the phone as a possible purchase, I'd recommend reading 1, 2, or 3 reviews since some contain personal slants in either a positive or negative light; doing so will give you a pretty even overview of the phone and why the battery is "special" -- which it is.

    This is one of the things that drives me so crazy about this phone. The battery life is just so darn inconsistent. I had my droid Maxx for a year and rarely went under in 50% an entire day. With this phone I have been using it in the same way in the same places and with the same apps and some days I stay above 50% and some days like today I am down in the 20s after just 10 hours from a full charge.

    These are my results today. This is after the recent OTA update and a cache wipe. Yesterday I was at our other hospital location where I generally have a worse signal and I came home after 10 hours with around 60% battery left.

    I never used to think twice about charging my Maxx extra during the day, but now I feel like I am a regular smartphone user with a mediocre battery and I have to worry about charging it all the time so it unexpectedly quickly die on me.

    Ideas? Does that belong wakelock results have something to do with it.

    That's bad. Really bad.

    I do agree the battery is very inconsistent. I didn't get any pictures because I was so tired and forgot but Friday I got up to 7 hours of display time. Yesterday with basically the same usage I got about 6 hours of display time.

    Anybody feel like after rebooting the phone, that it will take a couple days, or at least one full charge cycle to get back to better battery performance? I always feel like, if I reboot my phone for whatever reason, that day, my battery life will sort of suffer. The following day/s it will improve significantly. I even notice weird things showing up in my wake locks on GSAM after a reboot that seem to stop within the next day or so. Not sure if there's any basis for this and whether there are certain processes that take place after a reboot which take a while to settle down, but I'm pretty sure I've noticed this regularly. I also find that from one day to the next, this battery is somewhat inconsistent, and I can't correlate it to me doing anything differently. I feel like this was somewhat the case with the Maxx as well, which was my previous phone, but to a lesser degree.

    Snare, I have never seen wake locks that high. There's definitely something out of wack. The third screen shot showing the apps using the battery also has a drop down arrow at the top. Select that and switch it to view kernel wakelocks. Can you grab that and post it? The same screen will also have an arrow next to each wakelock. If you select it the next screen has a Google me button. That will hopefully show you why each wakelock is active. I've just never seen wakelocks that high compared to the hours up. Hope this helps man.

    Do you think its likely the wakelocks that are doing it? I just charged to 100% and am heading into work. I'll see how it goes during my shift today and will check the wakelock screen tonight. Its just still odd that its so inconsistent from day to day with similar use.
