    I've been very pleased with my battery life. Most recently I got 5 days with moderate usage (4-5 hours of phone calls, a few hours of listening to google play, and a few hours of texting). Have my brightness set fairly low and try to keep my apps from autorunning. I also disabled a bunch of the stock bloatware that came with the phone. Honestly, I feel like I could have gotten 6 days if I hadn't felt the need to plug it up during the night. I use the alarm clock app on my phone and though I knew there was a very slim chance the phone would die I still didn't want to take the risk. I generally see a 10-15% battery drain per day. Probably helps that I don't use Wi-fi. I just stick with 4G because I don't use Chrome that often.

    My battery life has progressively gotten worse since the update, especially WiFi usage. Unless it's all in my head. Will post screen shots later on.

    I'm at 2 hours 11 minutes of screen on time, 35% battery remaining, and 15 hours of phone on time. I'm really disappointed with my battery on this so far, compared to what other's are getting. Any suggestions, anyone?

    That sounds about on-par with my experiences. Mysteriously not what so many others get.

    How long have you had the phone? Mine took like 8 days to really settle in.

    If you do not use the moto voice always listening feature, turn it off.

    Try turning off location services to see if this helps.

    Also, for the Moto display feature, turn off the waive your hand setting. This uses sensors which seem to affect the battery.

    Even if these are features you really like, just for peace is mind, turn them off for a full day to see if it makes an improvement.

    If you see a drastic improvement like I did, then play around with turning back on which ever one of those features you can't live without.

    For me though, none of them are as important as the great battery life, which my phone gets when I keep them off.

    Right now I'm on 47% battery after 16 hours on with 3 hours, 20 min of screen time and 2 hours talk time.

    I've been keeping track of my battery stats, I'm running a long term test to track its battery use tgrough the life of the phone. I'll upload what I have so far later. I consistently get 40-48 hours of battery life with about 4-4.5 hours of screen in time. I don't charge my phone every night, I charge it when it needs it (about 30-25%). I'm doing this to keep the charge discharge cycles down. Over all I am very happy with the battery life. I don't have to worry anymore like I did with the gnex which battery sucked! I could watch it go down by the minute! This phone I'll be in WiFi on the internet and over a half hour see it go down by 1%!! Also I have disabled all the moto and Verizon bloatware, don't need the phone listening or waiting to turn on by itself. And seeing that I don't run to 0 every time I am confident I could easily get way over two days of battery life, I think also as others have said all of us are not average users.

    I'll upload the excel sheet of all my battery stats so far later

    Are disabling moto and bloatware the only things you've done to help your battery life? I can get to two days in one charge, but only with light use and about 2.5ish hours of screen time - brightness is pretty low, moto is on, and location is set to battery saver.

    Pretty much, I disabled any moto app, Verizon app etc. When my phones in pocket I turn off location, WiFi and data and sync. Turn it on when I turn the screen in to use it and then off when I'm done. At night I usually out it in airplaine mode and sync and all other stuff off so its my alarm clock. Usually at night I just turn off sync data and WiFi and I will reboot it to make sure no app is running that won't close.

    So my difference from you is I use no moto, location off unless I need it on and I use auto brightness. I also have NO apps that use battery usage. No games, no Facebook, etc. All my screen on time is stuff like email, texting, chrome, drive, calendar, keep etc. I have noticed by using the camera alot uses a lot of battery, over a couple days I took about 500 pictures and 12 videos and you'll see in my excel when I get around to uploading it I have comments with it

    Thanks! It's super helpful knowing exactly how people are getting this kind of battery life as far as personal usage habits. Last question then is - do you use an app like tasker to automate your data/wifi/airplane mode, or do you change them manually?

    your welcome, I dont use any program like that. I try to do it myself because that program would use some kind of battery. When I turn on my phone if im going to text and then turn it off i wont turn anything on (even mms download with out 3g or 4g). If i turn the screen on knowing im going to use chrome i will use the widget on my home screen (the one that came with the phone) or the pull down menus quick settings to turn on wifi and sync if im home or turn on data if im on the road. then when im done i turn off everything and shut off the screen. Really doesnt take much effort or thinking to do. not like...apple... where you would have to do into the settings menu everytime. the widget makes it easy

    My battery life isn't as amazing as everyone else's, but it's really good for me personally. I have around 90% of the bloatware disabled except for the moto apps and 2 of the Verizon ones.

    I would think snapchat uses a good battery chunk, as I have noticed using the camera alot uses aot of battery so add in the snap chat app syncing for new incoming pictures etc. Also I see you have 4g on and wifi on. When you arent using data do you disable that and sync? I know my turbo will both send and recieve pictre messages without any data on and I turn on data when I will be using it.

    I shut the setting off that connects to data when you have a weak connection yesterday evening, so I didn't get a chance to see how that helped my battery. On my iPhone 5, I used to use snapchat all day and my battery would drain extremely quickly. On my turbo, however, it doesn't drain that fast (it drains faster than normal use because of the syncing, camera, etc. as you mentioned).

    Now that I have a new smart watch, my bluetooth is on constantly. I'll see how that affects my battery as well and keep everyone posted. I'm still as amazed with this phone as I was on day one.

    To those who are trying to increase battery life. The clear cache, disable bloat, and use only moto apps that you need. I'm consistently getting 10% battery life for each hour of screen on time. Or 25% for two hours on time with heavier usage. But normal usage is even better. I never turn off data, but do turn off WiFi if away from home. That and my parents WiFi are the only ones I use. It took almost a month for my battery to really get good. And qi charging is not as good as turbo charging. The turbo charge gives better and longer times on usage levels. One week straight I qi charged and all stats were 15 to 30% less than turbo charging. I.e. the most sot I could do with qi 6 hours...turbo 7.5 to 8+. Hope that helps. And the comprehensive list of disabled apps...is spot on!!

    Day 3 and 4 of ownership. Not too bad considering it's still settling in.

    Could have gotten more time out of it, but it was time for bed and I needed full charge for today.

    Not sure this will help but power cycle and clear the cache. Also look at the mobile network type. Settings/more/mobile networks/preferred network type/set it to lte-cdma. If you were out of the country the network type should be set at global, but back home it should be lte-cdma.

    At long last, the numbers I've been trying to get for two months with this phone!


    Sunday night I plugged the phone in to charge up for Monday. I used the turbo charger for the full charge (single-digit percentage that I can't remember, right up to 100%). Monday morning I used the phone a little over breakfast and then plugged it back into the turbo charger to top it off to 100% for the day.


    I knew the day was going to go well when I saw that the change per hour value in GSAM was less than 2.0%. It's never that low, so that could only spell good things. At bedtime on Monday night I was still in the 60% range, so I decided to NOT charge and let the thing go all night and see what we can get out of it.


    I lasted until this afternoon, when I plugged back in when I got to 10% left. What's the difference between this day and any other? Only the turbo charger. I read elsewhere on this thread the theory that the using the turbo charger seems to make the charge last longer. I can't imagine why that'd be true, but hey, I'll try any reasonable theory, hence this experiment. Well I'm prepared to support the theory, because I've NEVER had the phone going strong, uncharged, beyond 24 hours. I'm a believer!
