    Anyone coming from A Droid Maxx notice that the idle drain is worse on the turbo? When I used to wake up in the morning with my Maxx with everything running, even 5-6 hours off the charger, it would only lose 2-3%. First two days with the turbo, and no matter what it's losing like 1.5% per hour. Not that that's horrible, but definitely a noticeable difference.

    I'm not sure about the idle drain and granted I'm only a few days into the Turbo, but the Maxx's battery was lasting longer for me. I'll see how it is in a week or two.

    Here's this morning. I bet it would actually go 40 to 42 hrs at this rate.

    Yes, the non-use idle time draw seems to be a bit worse. I realize that the My Maxx was already a 3500 mAh battery, but I was surprised how little life improvement the Turbo has.

    Holy smokes, just checked mine and though I've been on battery for only 2:43, I'm down from 100 to 87. 4G the whole time, nothing else. Only 24 minutes of screen time but PayPal is the second worst offender behind the screen (14%) and it isn't even shown as running in app manager!
    I didn't install PayPal because on my S5 it was destroying my battery even when I wasn't using it.

    I've noticed this too between the OG X and '14 X. And to make even more strange, the '14 X lasts longer.

    The 2k screen seems to be a big contributor to batter loss. Should've gone with a 1080 for a 5.2" display

    I was just talking to my brother about this. This is almost no difference between his G2 and my Turbo. Although, I do love the screen, they could have achieved a similar indistinguishable display with 1080p and it would have provided better battery life. The phablet market is where there is a more noticeable difference. I get that it's a marketing tactic and bragging rights to have the best phone in the market in multiple categories, and when I take a step back I laugh that we're splitting hairs about having 4-6 hours of screen time instead of more. With everything we get with this phone, it's still more than enough to get us through the day, which is the ultimate in sufficiency.

    I think the screen resolution negates the extra 400mAh. Compared directly to the Maxx it would probably be like 3200mAh. No science, just a ball park estimate.

    Just think of how big upgrade the screen, GPU, and processor are though. Even with the 400mah extra I was expecting equal or possibly a little worse battery life because of how big the upgrades were. But hopefully when android L comes that will change.

    Granted we are talking about an infinitely more powerful processor in the Turbo, which may not be fully optimized yet. I bet that Verizon/Moto will get this thing tuned like a purring 1969 Dodge Charger after Android 5.0 is loaded.

    Screen resolution is the difference if I had to guess.

    Fire, I decided to charge after 38 hrs and 14% remaining. I would say it was moderate use for me during that time. Amazon video, GPS, radio, email, and general internet use. I also reset up a lot of accounts after downloading apps through the play store. I will not complain about the battery with these numbers. I would expect it to actually get better. Once again my setting are not for everyone, so take it with a grain of sand. However the screens continue to get bigger and brighter and I also expect more from a device than I did 5 years ago.

    I was actually just thinking that my Turbo gets better idle battery life than my Maxx. Screen on battery life seems to be similar.

    4 hours 24 minutes. I would like to see that up to 6+ but I'll take it.

    I'm averaging about 12% per hour of screen time on auto brightness. Very happy.

    So no one is getting the 48 hours use time between charges? Had Moto gone with a 1080p screen, then 48 hours would have been achievable.

    The actual battery life seems to be 50% of what they claim for both the X (12 hours vs. 24 hours) and the Turbo (24 hours vs. 48 hours). 24 hours is just what I needed.

    I think you misunderstood me, if the screen is on it only drains about 12% per hour. With 2-3hours of total screen on time I can get 2 days off battery. Also see mobrules post above.

    I was just typing in general. So far no one has posted a screenshot of 48 hours between charges as Moto advertised. I have seen 1 day and 14 hours with 14% left. That might not get you to two days.

    This obsession with QHD is simply putting a drain on battery life. 1080p would have been plenty. But I do understand the spec race that these companies get caught in.

    Just calculated mine and I'm getting about 13.5% drain per hour while the screen is on. Which is pretty damn good.
