    I seem to be the only one who thinks battery life suffers. Maybe I'm remembering wrong, but I thought I used to routinely get 10 hours of screen on time and I'm down to about 7 now.

    Nope I agree. I used Tasker to shut down data when I didn't need it. If you look in the battery life thread I posted screen shots of 3 days use between charges. Now without that ability and a poor 4g signal area I get about 12-16 hours. So regret the update. And I could just imagine the increased data usage. I've been manually shutting it down. Huge pain.

    You're probably misremembering 10 hours of screen time. I've gotten 7 hours a couple of times and battery was at 12% and 14% remaining before recharge. My screen brightness is at about 30-35%.

    Battery question. I downloaded and installed Lollipop on Saturday afternoon. Charged my phone overnight on Saturday. Played around with it a moderate amount on Sunday. Went to bed last night around 11:00 o'clock and noticed phone charge was at 50%. When I looked at my phone around 8:00 this morning, charge was at 35%, meaning it lost 15% charge idling overnight.

    Is this normal? Because I don't remember the battery losing 15% overnight with Kit Kat.

    How many hours is overnight? After I updated I did a cache wipe afterwhich the phone keeps the display on waiting for your input to tell it to reboot, so by the time I came back to my phone it was down to 17%. I put it on the Turbo charger and got it up to 100% and then took it off the charger before I went to bed. I had it down to 98% before I actually turned in. After 5 hours of sleep, I got up and checked the battery, it had dropped to 91%. So it lost around 1.4% per hour.

    Not it's not normal. That's my whole point with being able to control data and background apps at night. I used to have battery use overnight of 2 to 3%. Now since the update and Tasker, automateit and apps like this not working I lose about 7%.

    I wonder if the bigger issue will be how much data is being used in the overnight hours and how that will drain data plans?

    My battery is draining over night about 14% now after lollipop never did this before. Is there anything to cut back on this.

    You don't charge your phone at night?

    Haven't needed to before the update. I would usually get 2-3 days between charges. Not anymore.

    I remember that sort of thing from my Blackberry days. Now I like the peace of mind of starting out the day with a full battery since I've not infrequently been down into the 30-40's by the end of the day. That and I'm somewhat of a battery nazi or else I might have some other phone. I'm sure there is some form of medication for the big battery addiction...

    In my example it was 9 hours.
    15% battery loss while idling for 9 hours.

    With about the same usages on KitKat and lollipop. KitKat the highest consumers were screen, cell standby and voice calls. Now in lollipop its Google app (Google now home screen), Google play services etc. The battery life is a little worse now. I feel lif the Google now is acting up once it gets fixed battery life will be much better

    You probably have a corrupted photo, video, or sound file in your storage. Try backing them up and maybe nuke them all and see if that helps.

    My battery life has been a lot better since the update. Previously, I was getting 6-7 hours of screen on time. Now, I'm getting 8-9 hours of screen on time. Before everyone jumps down my throat saying it's impossible, please understand that I keep my brightness at 25% unless I'm outside and I do absolutely no gaming.

    Since downloading lp, I've noticed a pretty drastic change in battery life. I know some are saying their battery has actually improved so wondering how the effects could very so greatly.

    Prior, I was getting through the day with heavy use and 5 hours screen on time. I'm currently only able to get about 10 hours out of it now, with less than 3 hours screen time

    Has it been a week for you? A whole new OS, new operating process, gotta take time to settle in.

    Your not the only one. Same here. There's already a thread about battery life but most feel it got better. I am not in that camp. I was pretty extreme with battery life and charged every 2 days and now every 12 hours.

    Same here. I used to be around 35% at the end of the day. I average 18 hour days between charges. Now I find myself having to grab a quick charge around 5pm if I'm doing anything other than staying home. I was part of the soak test so I've had the update for a while. I even cleared cache partition and that didn't help. I might try a FDR and see if that helps.

    FDR only slightly helped. I still find the drain to be terrible. I was really hoping this wouldn't be a Droid Maxx all over again. The move from 4.3 to 4.4 then lastly 4.4.4 for the Maxx saw battery life decline with each update.

    Still love the phone, but very disappointed in the battery life.

    Is it possible that those of you with worse battery life are just using the device more since the update? I know the first 4 or 5 days I had the Turbo on testing out apps and settings way more than before, so of course my battery went down quicker. The last few days being back at work and using it the same as before the update the battery life is much better.

    Last night it was 11% over 8 hours, so it is improving. Still seems high, though.

    Others have said to give it a week "to let it settle in." What exactly does a new OS do to require a battery to condition itself?

    I know I haven't. Can't say about anyone else. Maybe the first day yes because I had to figure things out. But not really since then. I pretty much live in a weak 4g signal area. I used to use Tasker to shut down my 4g signal when my screen timed out. That would actually use a lot of battery life. Now I can't do that and it's Verizon fault. I spoke with someone in tier 2 tech support and they admitted it was a Verizon feature request. It doesn't work that way on my Nexus lte tablet. They also set it up so you can't use Tasker to shut down background sync. I used to use 3-5 %battery overnight but now it's 12-15%. Which makes me wonder how much extra data I'm using. I think we are going to see a few posts about people going over data limits. But I think Verizon figured that in to these feature changes.

    Battery life seems to be the same or improved on my Turbo 64gb. Caveat, I had to perform a factory reset due to an issue after updating.

    As an example of the battery life, 7 hours after removing the phone from the turbo charger I have 80% battery remaining. Battery stats in Settings estimate 23 hours of juice remaining. Used Waze and Audible for 45 minutes driving into work, no wifi since removing from charger and limited 4G coverage.

    If this keeps up, I'll be plenty satisfied.

    UPDATE: Definitely spoke too soon! Battery has been averaging 16 hours from full charge which is half of what I was previously getting! Performing cache wipe as I type...
