It would be interesting to know how long (hours/mins) the phone reports the screen was on. You can determine that by long pressing the "Screen" item in the battery display screen (like the one you posted) and it will tell you how long the screen was on.
    Kudos.

    Yes it is a phone, but it is also a portable computer.
    Unfortunately battery development has not kept up with the different market demands [cell phones, laptops, electric powered automobiles].
    Until there is a new, smaller, more potent battery, this is what we have to live with.
    So we have to adjust our usage to eek the best battery life with what we have.
    If the screen is on a lot, the battery will not last very long.

    I still believe the manufacturers should develop a standardized test and be required to disclose screen time. I.e. movie play back or something like that.
    Way too many people think because you can talk on a phone (their standard test) for 20 hours you can play angry birds for 20 plus hours or watch movies for 20 hours or surf the net for 20 hours.
    Yes, every advancement in technology requires more energy. Faster processors, larger/denser pixels all require more juice. I'm all for nuclear powered phones.

    I'm for a phone powered by a mouse in a wheel if it would give more than 2 hrs of life!

    With the new super mice they can run 10-12 hours nonstop, proves science excels faster than technology.
