    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.
    We are heavy users... That's why.

    Give it a few days. I'm on day 3 and mine is still getting better.

    Yeah, if we're posting here we're definitely heavy users. Lots if i'nnernet, apps, genreral playing with it since its's new.

    As a side note, I use a G3 at work. It literally goes for 3 days. Probably use it for less than 10 minutes a day talking, receive about 15 texts per day, no internet. Idle time draw is insanely low.

    @jfoofoo Something was keeping your phone awake for hours while your screen was off. Compare the screen and awake reports.

    I really don't understand why peoples expectations are so distorted on the battery life. 48 hours was clearly for the strict purposes of marketing. They did the same for last years Droid Maxx. Under absolute ideal conditions you can reach that but most people will not be under ideal conditions or usage. I can get 20 hours with 7-8 hours of on-screen time which is amazing. I need a buffer to last me the entire day with heavy use which this phone clearly does. If you are expecting 48 hours with heavy use under 4G, that is just not going to happen in any modern smartphone yet.

    This phone is quite the battery performer especially considering the specs. It meets or exceeds last years Droid Maxx (which only had 720p resolution) which is exactly what I would want and expected. Highly recommended.

    As a side note, here is the excerpt from Motorola on the battery life:

    All battery life claims are approximate and based on an average user profile that includes both usage and standby. Actual battery performance will vary and depends on signal strength, network configuration, features selected, and voice, data, operating temperature and other application usage patterns.

    My screen shots from the GSam Battery monitor app show my progress since last full chat. Keep in mind that my Google Music app has also downloaded over 6 GB of mp3 files to my internal storage in the background most of this time. Not bad. Soon I will test the charging time with the Turbo charger when I get down to 10% battery.

    My 4g signal strength is -89 dBm

    I feel confident in this phones abilities. I'd be willing to go out for the night with my battery at 20% considering I know it will last.

    Something people need to get used to is this phone will last hours when it hits 10% or 15%. Usually with my s5 I'd be searching for a charger at 25%. With the turbo u need to realize that %10 is almost an hour of screen on time and probably 10 hours of standby.

    The idle drain on this phone, and by idle drain I mean the amount of battery loss that occurs while I'm not using it because I'm sleeping or my phone is literally down, and facing down so that the active display is not constantly running, is definitely not nearly as good as my Droid Maxx. That doesn't mean I don't have multiple things syncing with a fair amount of activity. To be clear, my email is set to auto push- gmail, yahoo, exchange - my WhatsApp is on and I had a lot of messages, my Line App was running and I had numerous messages, my bleacher Report app had numerous stories pushed through, in addition to a few yahoo news feeds, etc.

    All I can say is that my phone was unplugged while this activity transpired for approximately 6.5 hours and I woke up with my battery down to 90%. On my Maxx, it would have been closer to 96%-97%.

    This was all on Wifi by the way.

    On a semi separate topic, I will question though whether this is due to actual battery loss or whether the amount of battery loss is being interpreted more accurately. I question this because I've noticed now in my first 3 days with the phone, that once I hit 50%, and then 40%-30%-20%... so on, it seems to be more consistent than the Maxx. In other words, on my Maxx, once it hit 50%, I always questioned whether that figure was accurately interpreted because it always seemed to drain significantly faster than the first 50%. And at 20% on my Maxx, I would notice a precipitous decline, whereas as on this phone, it seems to continue climbing down at a consistent pace.

    This is just what I've noticed over the last few days, but it still seems to translate to inferior idle drain.

    PS - PayPal was responsible for 18% battery loss and was apparently awake for 28 minutes, so maybe that's partially the culprit. I deleted it now and will test again tomorrow to see if the idle drain has changed at all.

    I'm reading an article that is already bashing the Turbo's battery. I completely disagree.

    Droid Turbo Is Here, But About That Battery...
    All depends on use. What seems to hurt the Turbo is the display tech used. In spite of same chip, smaller display and bigger battery, the Turbo battery life per reviews is significantly less than the Note 4.

    And how much screen on time. Too subjective like all the infamous battery life threads

    I haven't seen any info or direct comparison where the Note 4 is proving to have better battery performance than the Turbo. Where is your source?

    I took mine off charger at 5am this morning 100% charged. Didn't touch it again until 10am and it was at 99%. That's special considering my house is a bad signal area, usually only -95db avg.

    Decent battery life. I didn't really pick up my phone until 6 hours into the cycle.

    We'll see if this 50% lasts as long as the first.
