    What is your screen on time? I dont see why everyone assumes that there are no factors going into the 48 hours? If your on your phone for 12 hours straight using an app like facebook you wont see the "promised 48 hours"
    If I leave it off the battery will last forever.. But what is normal use?

    Really that cant be answered unless you some how took an average of everyone in the worlds phone usage. That would be an average "normal" usage.

    For comparison my droid x and my Gnex could last only 16 hours (from the time I woke up till the time I went to bed) and I'd have to charge them every night. That was with about 3 hours of screen on time in that 16 hour period. I feel like everyone is complaining about not getting the "promised 48 hours". Read motorola's website. No here does it say any promises. It implies that with a typical use (as in not being glued to your phone every second) the phone can last up to 48 hours on a single charge. Personally I have found that to be a very good average usage. Some days I get way more and some way less depending on my usage for that charge-discharge period.

    So I resisted the urge to put it on the charger at 35% after dinner. It lasted several more hours. I never thought it would be possible.

    The phone was held awake by something for almost an hour longer on the second one. That's the difference
    Nope. This was one of the 'good' Turbo charges. My held awake time is similar amongst all the charges. Doesn't explain discharging differences between a Turbo and regular charge.

    Google settings -does turning off location reporting and location history under Google location reporting disable the ability to find if lost?

    The time all dependers on many factors, some days I only get 24 hours, some days I get 3 days. For example if day one when you only got 17 hours, maybe you talked on the phone for 8 hours that day. Then day two you only talked on the phone for 2 hours. That allows for an increase in other usage (either standby time, screen on time etc). Unless you are the exact same each day you will have varying on battery times

    All those apps always tend to do more harm than good. They may stop other things from draining the battery, but in turn they are draining battery to do so. Considering how easy it is to disable things on a Droid, no real need to have these 'killers' IMO, outside of using them as task schedulers (turn X off when..., turn Z on if..., etc.).

    Nothing other than disable vzw bloat.
    I'm sure I could get longer life if I didn't live in a consistent 2 bar area.

    I've disabled all bloatware, auto brightness, only sync Google services, etc. Do you turn mobile data off or something?

    Very similar to me.
    I also don't use a bunch of apps that will send me notifications. Only social media type app I use is instagram (I've heard Facebook app is murder on battery).
    Mobile data is always on, WiFi is always on.
    A little YouTube here and there, WWE app some, lots of chrome browser, Android Central app, Walmart app, play music, and Gmail.
    Using Nova Launcher, not sure if it makes any difference.
    I've disabled the Command Center widget as it is definitely a battery drain.


    Since we seem to have similar setups, out of curiosity, what is the "assembled on" date of your phone? Mines 12/12. Based on my readings, I honestly believe there is a quality difference in some of the batches.

    Amazingly, I just got a new 2 in 1 from Acer (the Switch 10) and it actually talks about conditioning the battery in my new convertible. They actually talk about letting it run down to 10% and then full charge and doing it for 3 iterations.

    I run a similar setup to yours and my battery life is no where near what you are getting. If i get 3-4 hours on screen without going below 25% I am lucky. My phone was assembled on 9/27. Which dates have you noticed having battery issues?
