    True! At least according to the folks who actually made the phone. I bet they took the plastic off :P

    Sent Turbo-fast from my bulletproof 64GB Droid Turbo
    You're getting a lot of mileage out of that. 😉

    So today I got my phone down to 25% (that's really low for one day's worth of use coming from the Maxx). I again charged for 15min and it again went up 1%/min to 40%. Maybe I need to get it all the way down to 1% to take true advantage of the turbo charger. Its still a lot faster than my Maxx charged at least

    I just drained my Galaxy S5 and charged it for 15 mins using the stock charger. I was able to get 18% battery life.

    Let's see if the S5 can match the Moto's advertised 8 hours with me just texting and checking my work emails. (I get a lot of work emails)

    I'll report back at the end of the work day.

    Can someone else run the same test on their Droid Turbo?

    As noted above I only got it down to 25 percent but it charged at 1% per minute. Certainly not going to get 8 hours of use out of 15%

    I know that. I just want to know how the two phones stack up against each other.

    Also, if I put my phone into ultra power saving mode, I'll get 2 days of standby time. 8 hours won't be a problem.

    results: 15 min charge from 0 equates to 18% battery life = five hours of light texting, craigslist, and email

    from 0%, it takes 1 hour and 44 mins to get a full charge.

    I would like to see a comparison against the Droid Turbo

    Actually, if their claim that the battery lasts for 2 days (48 hours) is true, then coming from a 100% charge that's 0.48 hours per 1% (28.8 minutes). By that logic, in order to last 8 hours, you'd need 16.67% battery. That's not that far off if you said it was charging at 1%/min...

    Now, real world test may prove or disprove this, but I've been finding that with *moderate* use and a decent signal strength, I am getting close to 48 hours per change. The problem is that in reality, we sometimes need to use our phones a lot more than "moderately" and in areas where the signal may be crap...in which case you're not going to get anywhere near that.
