    I have experienced a faster battery drain after the KitKat update. I have perform 2 Factory Resets: One from the settings menu, the other using the alternate method. I am using the same apps I have been using from almost beginning of time. I do not root. Same thing happened with my Samsung Fascinate after Gingerbread update. There may be subtle manufacturing differences with our phones, such as a different chipset used that may be from multiple vendors, something. It could not be explained.

    Well battery life is still pretty bad. The main thing that drives me crazy is many times at work I'm sitting 5 feet from someone with an iPhone 4 on Verizon like my G2 and not having enough reception to do anything data wise when the iphone is able to do anything except stream video.

    Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I had forgotten about that post. I think the signal difference that time was an outlier. Since then both phones have been much closer in signal strength.

    I have being saying around with some of the settings and I found that the sync setting helps with battery saving. If you turn the sync setting and your brightness off, your battery life will increase dramatically. I found that the LG G2 screen is pretty bright just naturally and most times your eyes just adjust to it. I go to work for 4 hours every morning and I turn those 2 settings off and it barely drops 1% until I get home and turn them back on.

    I think the lack of reception is what kills mine so bad. I think if I had LTE everywhere my phone would do so much better.

    Kit Kat has killed my battery life on the Note 3 and my son's Samsung Galaxy S5. We had to buy extended batteries to make it through the day. My wife and daughter have iPhones which have terrible batteries and they they laughed at us when our phones batteries died quickly after Kit Kat.

    I don't know guys and gals. My G2's battery is about the best thing about my phone. I'm on the latest 4.4.2.


    • At work in my cubicle I'm constantly bouncing from 1X to 3G to 4G.
    • I stream Netflix while working out each morning for at least 30 minutes
    • I stream Netflix every day during lunch, or I use it as a hotspot during lunch for my iPad to stream Netflix.
    • I stream music (or Marc Maron's WTF podcast app) to and from work each day for an hour each way.
    • I play games on it several times during the day.
    • I have all my email set to push.
    • I carry it around in my back pocket when I'm not in my cubicle, so it doesn't get the greatest signal. (I'll probably bet butt cancer.)
    • My screen is set to full bright when watching movies.

    I mean, looking at that list, I consider myself a heavy user; right?

    So at night before I put it on the charger, it's still got around 25% or more battery left. I mean, who can complain about that? I'd say if your battery life still sucks, call LG again and tell them they didn't fix it right.

    That's definitely better than mine.

    I had a hotspot issue with mine. I sent it back to LG so that they could fix it. While it was there, I had a few scratches in my screen that they noticed, so they replaced the screen for free. Now, like I said, I've never had battery issues, but I have a lot of luck with their repair place. I'd contact them again. Tell them that they didn't solve your problem.
