    I would toggle BT "Off" when not needed as well as Location to "Battery Saving" down from "High Accuracy" when not needed.

    Doesn't moto connect give you instant connection to paired bt devices?? So you would be able to not have to be paired all the time?? I don't use it.. So idk..

    Here's the stats I had yesterday. Awesome battery life compared to my old iPhone. BT off, GPS off (I don't use either) and brightness all the way down unless I'm outside in sunlight, then its at about 1/4 up. And some Tasker profiles that turn WiFi off when I'm not at home or on campus, and mobile data gets turned off when I sleep. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Has anyone noticed that the battery seems to drop quicker after 30%? And this is after supposedly calibrating the device.. I think I'm going to do a couple of drain(15%) to full cycles.. See what that does my battery life is good.. But it makes me wonder...

    That is fairly normal though isn't it? I've read that to accurately calibrate your battery you should run it down until it powers off once every few months. Just getting it down into the low percentages doesn't entirely recallibrate. I don't recall the source for sure, but thought it was battery university or some other reputable source.

    Yes that's basically true but... Bad idea on a sealed battery device .. Because if the battery falls below a safe threshold.. It won't take a charge and you would have an issue, unless you have a factory programing cable. I don't want to take the chance of killing my device..

    Many people have met the white light of death with the razr devices from letting their battery drop too far. The turbo is just the next step in that family..

    Might as well chime in. I keep my brightness at about 30-35%. I have Location Services set to Battery Saver. Otherwise I leave WiFi and bluetooth on all the time. Did a lot of web surfing, listening to podcasts, several lengthy phone calls, etc.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but don't we buy expensive high powered phones so we can have BT, GPS, and all the bells and whistles? That's why I bought this phone… to get this extraordinary battery life. It pains me to read that it's necessary to shut off /disable features to get better battery life. In the meantime, can someone please tell me how too attach a screenshot to a post? Thanks!

    You don't have to disable those. You just can't expect to have everything running AND get the battery results of other folks who do not have them running. The fact you can get through an entire day with everything running and have battery life still left is fantastic. Try that with most other phones and you will need to plug in at some point during the day.

    I'm going too try turning off BT and see if moto connect turn it on when I get in the car (it is paired) to see if that helps.
    But I DO have to plug in most days. I've been on for 3 hours now and I'm down too 55%. Clearly that is not going to get me through the day without plugging in.
