This phone has the strangest battery life I have ever seen!
The first few weeks it was average, lasting about 12-14 hours. A few weeks later and it was great, lasting 18-20 hours with 25-30% charge left. Then it went back to just average and has been lasting around 12-14 hours before needing a recharge (even after the Portico update).
Two days ago the strangest thing happened... I put my phone on the wireless charge pad. In the morning I picked up the phone and it was HOT with a full charge. About two hours after being taken off the charger, it was down to 55% with 0 use. So yesterday I shut the phone off, turned it back on and put it on the charger. This morning, I pulled it off the charger at 7:00am. I am now (nearly six hours later) sitting at 95%. I have sent a dozen or so texts, made a couple of calls, etc... (moderate use). So I opened up the Battery Level app to see how long the current charge would last and here is what I see:

Im starting to think the last update for the battery level update was buggy. I too was having some weird issues. My battery drain according to the battery level app was huge. In less than 2 hours of standby time and maybe 30mins of streaming music; the meter went from 100% to 25%. Stating the battery had 30mins left. Normally 25% says at least a couple of hours. Now at 84% I am showing 2 days and 6mins.
Not sure whats going on.

I was reading some other posts on the forums where users are speculating there might be a "bug" in the OS related to battery usage. I am not to sure what is causing it. Doesnt bother me too much, it would just be nice if it was a little closer to being accurate.
Thanks for the input.

I have totally noticed the same thing using the wireless charger and the phone being hot after taking it off, and
Just a few days ago my battery would go dead with in 8 hours with little use at all. This morning I took a screen shot just before work; 1 day 7 hours 68% remaining. This is with normal use also, Texting, some long like my feedback to AT&T. I browsed the net about 30 min, watched a couple vids on where to find terminals for Halo4. Made a few phone calls. I was just amazed last night when I was using the phone but the battery was't really going down I'm still having rebooting issues and have noticed a 1% - 2% drop every reboot, so in the dozen or more reboots from yesterday that may have taken up a good portion of the battery itself.
Unfortunatly this phone is in the process of getting replaced because of the reboot issue, but I thought it was strange because I have never gotten anywhere near that much battery life.
