    Question battery testimonies

    Hey everyone was just wanting to hear about your battery life stats, I feel as though my battery is not what it should be and am trying to check with others

    I went from 100% to 5% in 13 hours and this to me feels poor, 52% and 4 hours was on screen time, wifi has been running for the whole 13 hours, and about 2 hours of that time I was playing games, is this normal or is my battery defective?

    Hi Gazzy13,

    Your battery usage pattern doesn't sound suspicious. 4 hours of on screen with 2 hours of that playing games, and still getting 13 hours sounds about normal for the standard battery smart phones. WIFI on the full 13 hours is good if you are connected to a WIFI link, but if there is no link nearby, having WIFI off would help preserve battery life. Try downloading and installing WIFI Auto On (Verizon's application, not the third party one), and set up locations that have known internet access to which you can connect. Once configured properly, it will turn WIFI on and off as you arrive at and leave from those WIFI connected areas, and will also help to preserve battery life.

    Also, check your brightness level. Believe me, it's great to see a really bright screen with all those colors leaping off the screen, but that intensity comes at a great cost. Lowering your brightness can add hours to the battery's run time. Your screen is one of the largest power hogs and anything you can do to reduce time on will have a large impact on the battery run time.

    I say no way. Even with screen brightness to maximum, if you were on wifi the entire time, and not using 4g. You should definitely be getting at minimum 15 hours of battery.

    My question: did you disable global under the mobile network mode?

    I have my screen on smart brightness which says it's the best at saving battery, I also have the app juice defender on aggressive mode which saves battery. I just feel like it drains too quick... I will play a high quality game such as dead triggerfor ten min and lose 5 percent battery

    Get rid of Juice Defender. disable Global mode. Again, 15 hours minimum.

    what is the global mode? I see that mine is set to that.
    Nevertheless, I get a day and a half easily with heavy usage.

    By default the mobile data is set to global mode but that can interfere with your mobile data connection and your battery because rather than your phone only looking for a LTE/CDMA connection, it is looking for those and a bunch of non-existent, useless gsm connections, wasting battery in the process and not maintaining the best connection.

    Set it to LTE/CDMA mode for best results.
