    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.
    Yes I believe the wakelocks will do that. There has to be an app causing the wake lock. The time held awake is just way out of line. Post some shots later if possible.

    Soooooo..... This is interesting. Got the VOLTE update last night. No big deal on that but I wonder if they added some other things with it. I have Tasker set up to shut down 4g and background data from a 2200-0600. I usually lose about .5 to 1.0% battery per hour of those hours(at night). Charged up before bed last night, unplugged and watched about 10 minutes of HBO GO, then asleep. Got up today and battery is at 97% and lost average of. 03% overnight. That was at over 9 hrs up time. That's freaking awesome. Maybe it's an a fluke but I also wiped the cache after the update last night. I won't be able to really test it until this weekend. Anyone else noticing something like this?
    I've noticed improved battery life as well since the update.

    Droid Turbo: Battery Life-screenshot_2014-12-14-22-32-19.jpg

    So heres the latest. I noticed a pretty significant increase in idle battery drain after the last update. Decided to stretch it to see if it would make it this long and thats the results. I didnt use it much on friday or the weekend. I usually dont let it go this far down before I charge it. I dont know if this made a difference but under developer options at the very bottom is the option background process limit. I switched that to 4 instead of standard. It seems a little snappier. Im not what you would call a power user. I have disabled what I dont want to use and shut down the 4g signal and background sync when the screen times out at 2 minutes. I use tasker to accomplish this. I also dont use HD/VoLTE calling but thats due to the coverage area I am in.

    I see your screen eats more power than all other functions) If you want to save your battery life you should turn the brightness down.

    Not trying to save battery. 6 hours of screen time is fine.

    Well I came home at 46% tonight instead of 30%. Still not droid Maxx quality but slightly better day. Here is a wake lock screen. It consistently seems to be that combined one of the top.

    How is this bad? 50% in 19 hours with over 2.5 SOT. I would say that's excellent.

    46% on the Turbo is different that 46% on the Maxx. The Turbo will give you a lot more mileage out of that 46% than the Maxx. Once my Maxx would go below
    50%, it would always move down from there way more quickly than the first 50%. The Turbo seems to be consistent all the way through. That's my experience at least.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Combined one just a combination of the others...a total? It's always going to be on top if that's the case.

    I'm proud to say that I went the entire weekend without plugging in. I unplugged after work on Friday at 100%, went 2 days, 14 hours and 8 minutes before I plugged back in this morning at work with 4% left. My screen time was 3 hours 40 minutes. Best result yet in my opinion. I have pretty consistently gotten 2 days of battery use with around 4 to 5 hours of screen time over the past month. I have yet to do a heavy use day.

    On weekends I tend to use my tablet more at home, so I am mostly a lite user on the phone. This did include about 30 minutes of phone calls, a few minutes of video recording with the LED's on, about 15 minutes of GPS time to do some quick geocaching. The rest was mostly internet and facebook. I use 4G only instead of wifi, because I'm unlimited and don't care how much I use. I disable much of the main bloatware except Slacker, Verizon Messenger, Verizon widgets, and Command Center. I didn't get too crazy disabling apps, since most of them hardly touch the battery anyway and I don't notice them. I just removed ones I would never use or were a nuisance. I do use Moto Voice. I do have wave to silence alarm enabled, but I have yet to see it work (probably because it's dark when my alarm goes off). I did turn off Moto Approach, because it was just to sensitive for my liking. Motion alone will turn on my active display, and I'm fine with that, although a wobbly table or movement in a car will cause it to turn on constantly. Overall, I can't complain and based off of what I have seen with my Nexus 10, Lollipop will hopefully improve the battery life even more.

    Congrats. I'm pretty much the same on the weekends(see screen shot previous page). I use a nexus 7 or 10 on the weekends. I too disabled most recommended but not all. There's some features I like.

    I noticed your 3 days and 8.5 hours of screen time. Kinda made be question if I should bother posting my stats.
    But I saw that you mentioned the use of Tasker to shut down data and syncing. I have a profile set up on mine that I had experimented with a bit. I had it set up to shut off data when the screen turns off and then cycle every 5 minutes to check for anything new, such as email, facebook, etc. It worked fine, but I didn't notice any battery improvement. Maybe 15 or 30 minute cycles would have helped. I guess I'm pretty content with the usage time I'm getting so I stopped using those profiles. Right now I only use Tasker to make my phone silent when I get to work, based on the specific cell tower in that location. I need to find more uses for it. I'm a programmer by trade, but any "programming" outside of work doesn't interest me much anymore.

    Guess I havent really considered or at least set that up. I would guess I check it every 15 to 20 minutes for the same reasons. And yes you should post your stats/screenshots. I only post them for newer users to show what the battery life can be if they so desire. Guaranteed someone will post this week or next " why does my battery life suck". I try to encourage them to read back though the thread but lets be honest, most wont because its a long thread.
    Everyones battery life will vary. Different signal strength and screen settings are big factors. I was glad to see your post to know I am not the only one trying to get the most out of the battery.
    I also realize my setting are not for everyone. I tend to take it to the extreme for battery savings. I only offer examples and suggestions. Some are power users but im not.

    My point was more that my Maxx would never get that low during my days with the same use, apps and locations. Usually ended the day around 60%. My Turbo is routinely into the 40's and and much less consistent from day to day. Maybe Lollipop will solve all of my lifes problems...

    I noticed that after my first reply. Maybe it's still a total, but it is rounding some of the stats, or maybe there is a delay in adding up all the stats. That's my best guess, but I could be wrong.

    My point is that the battery meter displaying 40% left on your Turbo is probably the equivalent of about 60% on your Maxx, so there's no reason to be concerned. I would agree that the battery life on this phone from one day to the next, is probably a little less consistent than the Maxx, but overall I seem to get slightly better battery performance from the Turbo.

    It guess a little better but no where near others stats. This was all after the update. Are all batteries different and is there anything I might have running that's draining battery?
