    So far not great. I have tried to change as much as I can to save power but it still seems poor

    I am not 100% sure but I am currently at 57% and I already charged onced today, with moderate usage. So I would guesstimate about 6-7 hours max. I have power saving mode on. Since it's still new maybe I am missing something.

    I haven't put it down. So... not great. Lol.

    What does the power-saving mode do specifically, has anyone figured that out?

    Look in settings under power savings. It has line item on what it does.

    Day 4- after 6 hours of minimal use - battery is @ 50%
    That doesn't seem very good to me. Yesterday I had moderate use and battery seemed to last almost all day. Go figure

    battery life

    mine kinda sucks. im disappointed.

    im getting a little under 10% drain per hour with moderate use. i'm even skimping on some settings to try and save juice.... i can make it through my work day but the batterys around 30% by the drive home. i don't like being that close to the edge so i basically have to have a charger in my office and car.


    my droid x was significantly better, with liberty and extended batt i was able to go two days with light. 36 hours moderate.

    regardless of battery size, you have to compensate for the LTE. I unplugged mine today at 7:20 AM and it is at 12% at 10:18pm. I used power saver for the first few hours, and also forgot to put my display on auto. it was on full till about 7:30 pm.

    I honestly think the battery appears to run a little better than my Nexus with the same 2100 mah extended battery.
