    Apparently 30%? I have used it quite a bit, there were a couple small charges in there, but integrating that curve has a fair bit more area than even my Maxx did when new.

    I'm no expert, but if "there were a couple small charges in there", doesn't that negate any type of results? Don't get me wrong. I'm pleased that you're loving your Turbo. Most of us are as well.

    Does it matter? If he's doing everything he wants to do and getting 2 days of battery life, who cares how much is screen on time.
    It's pretty impressive and a great phone!

    If you touch "Screen" it will show you how much actual time the screen was on in hours and minutes.

    Coming from the Droid Razr Maxx with the 3300mAh battery to the Turbo with its 3900mAh battery was a bit less impressive experience for me. I really think the amount of battery required for the Turbo screens eats up that extra 600mAh and makes it a wash. In some cases, I feel I got better battery life from my Razr Maxx.

    They would, had they been full charges. Hence the explanation of integrating the curve.

    I have had a RAZR Maxx, a Droid Maxx and now a Turbo. The Turbo is the best battery life I have experienced to date. If Verizon doesn't give us over the air enemas, it will be a fine phone indeed.

    Lollipop will make the battery even better. Cannot wait to see what it has in store for us.

    I gotcha now. I'm still learning. I just recently installed GSam and I was instructed to let it run a few days, that start to analyze the data. I'm trying to learn about this app and how the battery works in general.

    I agree with this, as my DRM got 2 days of life, easily, with an 80% drain. But, these are two different phones. The DRM pales in comparison to the speed, sharp display, and power of the DT. Losing 9 hours or so of battery life for the improvements is a fair exchange, IMO.

    The point was though that he's misrepresenting the battery life due to the 'few small charges' (which also isn't good for the phone's battery memory). Great that he is happy with it, but the posted picture is slightly misleading to others.

    Don't count on it. Google also said that KitKat had battery improvements but the Droid Maxx has had worse battery life on kk than on the original jellybean.

    It could have better battery life but it's possible it will be a wash.

    OK. So, the calculus reference isn't working here.

    I'm guessing 85%+ of the general population wouldn't get a calculus reference. So, not sure why it would be used as an explanation as opposed to layman's terms.

    Because it fits. Its a highschool concept, thus I thought people would understand. Not like we're solving systems of differential equations on the imaginary plane...

    Exactly, us geeks wanna know how much time he is getting with the screen on.

    I can normally get like 18 hours off the charger, with 4.5 - 5 hours of use time and then charge with like 18 - 22 % left

    Meteorological science 'fits' explaining the weather, but weathermen don't use it. Why? Because the general population won't understand.

    Not everyone took calculus in high school, and even those of us that did probably haven't thought of it since the calculus final that year.

    Agreed. The function/feature/specs between the two can not be compared. The Turbo has it all over the other one.

    I would consider myself a power user, and this is the first phone where the battery is not an issue at all. It still throws me off how good the battery life is.

    As someone who has only had an Android phone (Hero, EVO, Nexus, HTC ONE), I'm still conditioned to plug in whenever I can and micro-manage my battery (including buying Mophie cases and external batteries)... but not with the Turbo.

    Granted, I have some other gripes with this phone, but the battery is by far the best thing about it and I can only hope my next phone has a monster battery.
