    Just woke up and took my phone off charge, 100% battery, 10 minutes later with no use of my phone I'm at 87%..... I give up, this has to be the worst Android phone I've ever had. I miss my incredible! Oh and don't bother telling me about turning apps off and dimming my screen and turning off my auto syncs, I've done it all, if I turn anything else off I might as well use two cups and a string and my tb can be a paper weight.

    There must be something wrong with it. I haven't had mine plugged in since 9 last night and it's still over 60% with moderate use. Are you stock or rooted? If rooted, what are you running?

    Stock, I've been waiting for Verizon to push the update before I root because outside of the battery issue my phones internet just goes in and out of service ever since the last software update. I won't even start about the reboots.

    I would tend to agree. I get 12-16 hours with moderate use.

    If your having problems connecting to either the cell network, data network or both that is most likely the cause of your battery issue. It is I huge drain on the battery when signal is unreliable. The weaker the signal the harder the radio works to obtain a signal thus causing a larger drain on the battery.

    It sounds like you might have a faulty radio especially since your stock. Has this been going on since you got the phone?

    If you have Wifi at your house keep it in that mode. Battery life lasts all day for me when I'm at home

    Yes but he is most likely having problems keeping a good connection to the wireless network. You can't receive calls over wifi unless yo use a voip app.

    Yes this has been an on going issue from day, as far as WiFi goes I do keep it on at home but I'm out most of the day so the majority of the usage is from the network.

    Like I said its probably a bad/faulty radio. It sounds like its time to take a trip to Verizon.

    One last question? Are you in a 4g network if so do you travel between 4g and 3g areas during the day? This can also be a big drain on the battery. Sa the radio keeps switching between 4g and 3g.

    I'm in a 4G area pretty much all day, home and work are always 4G. I spoke to 3 Verizon managers and they keep trying to push a refurbished unit but I don't want a used phone since I just bought this, unfortunately its been over 30 days so they won't give me a new phone.

    I was referring to having the phone in just wifi. That is, turn on airplane mode then turn on wifi. You will not have a cell signal then.

    Keeping the phone in airplane mode with wifi on will negate the issue of a bad radio but you can't send or receive calls while in airplane mode.
