    Well it's certainly better than earlier. Instead of solid blue is at least fragmented now but there's still room for improvement. If I were to guess I'd say that instead of 100%, it's now about 30-35%.

    The good thing is that it's mostly only blue during screen on which is what you want.

    I'd say so. Seems quite reasonable but there's still room for improvement.

    Well I still have an issue I guess... Android system seems to be keeping the phone awake, what now? Screenshot_2014-12-10-13-44-51.png Screenshot_2014-12-10-13-44-58.png Screenshot_2014-12-10-13-45-06.png

    From what I see the Android OS is awake a lot, but it does not appear to be consuming that much of your battery. Much better awake battery usage overall. Maybe someone with more knowledge can provide insight into the OS showing awake so much. I see that a lot on my Samsung tablet, but not on my Droid Turbo phone.

    The questions I would have are, what (if any), applications are you running to sync data, such as social networking, file to cloud backups, email, text applications, anything essentially that does data transfer and especiallly if they're running in the background? I agree with @TDL1068 , it doesn't seem to be consuming a lot of battery power, but it is still remaining "awake" far more than it should IMHO.

    I don't even have the facebook app installed, I am not sure what it could be. As of now I am down to 54% with 10 hours on battery, which is worse than yesterday at this time. Android has kept it awake for 5 hours, 13 minutes, and I only have 47 minutes of screen time. I wish there was some way to see what exactly is doing it, but I guess I'll either have to start uninstalling stuff or FDR. My 14 day window is ending soon.

    Edited to add, if an app can cause all this awake time, which causes the battery drain, why wouldn't that app show in the list as using a high percentage of the battery? Or in gsam? Why is it showing up as the OS?

    Well, it has been a few days now, and I have uninstalled most everything I use except for my email app. But still,l I get to the end of the day with less than 40% of the battery and no more than 2 hours of screen time. I just don't get it. But, it doesn't matter anyway, I have to return the phone tomorrow. We got this phone thinking we needed the new line for work, but it turns out they are supplying a company phone, which we just found out. I just hope they will let us out of the contract on the new line, as we are still in the 14 day grace period. So I will go back to my Moto X, where I get the same performance out of the battery at half the size. I'm a little bummed but that's the breaks, at least I'm not having to give up a phone I was completely happy with.

    Well I don't know what to say at this point but for me the phone has stabilized to a point where it's getting through an entire day and 4-5 hours of screen time, an hour or more of calling and is left with about half of the power. Last night I steamed audio for several hours as well.

    In the example above I've only used 5% and with almost 20 minutes of screen time and 3.5 minutes of calling that's pretty good. I think that the OS just needs time to settle down. That said, an FDR is always an option.

    In you're case however if you don't need the phone then the point is moot. I wish we could have had better luck getting you fixed up but time is not on your side. Taking it back now will result in a full refund and no early termination fees but you may differ a restocking fee. If so, complain of the battery life humbly and ask for them to waive the fee.

    Mine has gotten steadily better as well. I'm off charger since 6am (its now 2 pm) and I'm at 90% battery. Not a lot of heavy useage about 45 mins screen time but mostly phone calls.

    I charged my turbo, overnight for the first time with the supplied turbo charger. And its battery life(especially standby) is doing much better and to think.. I already get 7 hours of on screen time. Bet I can get more out of it now..
