    Hey guys and gals, I'm shocked that there isn't any talk about battery life from this lovely phone! I am so far very pleased regarding the battery life. Today is the first full day of owning the phone and it has been off the charger a little over 7 hours and I'm still at 84%. Granted I have been working and haven't used the phone a whole lot other than text messaging, but that battery life works for me!

    How about everyone else? Satisfied? Throw some numbers at me!

    According to Battery Sense, It's been 19 hours and 24 minutes since my last charge and I have 20% left. Very impressed so far.

    I've had it for two days and when sitting idle, not bad at all. But it seems to chew through battery quickly (14-15% hour) using non gaming apps. I've already tuned it for battery life and I'll give it a few charging cycles before I place my verdict.

    LTE murders it. On WiFi it's stellar.

    I'm mostly on WiFi but I loaded a lot of apps I had on my 8X. I'm guessing one of them is killing my battery. Time to play the delete, charge, and wait game.

    Interesting... On my current 8X battery live is awesome when on LTE and it's so, so on 3G...

    I've had the same experience as rdavenp3. Standby time is fantastic, it barely sips battery. Browsing the web and doing internet/data intensive activities drains the battery in a hurry. Overall, for my usage, it will serve me very well and I expect to get through maybe 30 hours between charges. Also, it may improve even more after a few cycles, so we'll see about that.

    30 hours! ha! Happy for you. 920 barely gets over 9 hours if you really use it.

    I'm a little worried.. I just got a new 928 a day ago.. first thing out of the box, I ran it til the battery was goners. Then I charged it to 100% for its very 1st charge.. took about 2hrs give or take, don't recall exactly.. Unplugged it, then I spent some time loading apps over WiFi. I put on about 8 apps and got lazy so I stopped. The battery claimed 92% full at that time so I went to sleep.

    I woke up the next morning and the phone was off. I thought, hmm.. crash maybe, lol? No way is the battery completely sapped?! Yep, sure enough the battery was zero. I couldn't even turn on the phone. I had slept at about 1130p (batt @92%), woke up around 630a.. battery 0%. Who knows what time last night it actually went dead.

    So see how I'm worried.. granted, I don't know what happened, but it worries me that the batt went kaput in about ~7 hours of standby..

    I'm hoping a few more charge cycles opens up the battery, and that last night was a fluke, but we shall see..

    Amazing standby time. A bit worrying about actual usage time.

    are there any settings to turn off LTE?
    (reason i ask, the HTC One does not have any settings to turn LTE off, so if it sees LTE signal, it will continually try to connect to it, even if its a low strength signal)

    Battery life is fine with me, but wireless charging takes much longer than my 8x did. I thought that was odd.

    I do agree standby time is amazing, usage is okay. Good enough to get me by!

    I installed an app from the windows store called Network Dashboard. It lets me add live-tiles to switch the wifi and/or the LTE on and off on the home screen. I've found it very useful in just the one day I have been using it.

    I'm having issues too, even when using WiFi. I have blocked Nokia Drive, which apparently uses a lot of battery, but I'm still not getting the performance I should. Infact, it's somewhat similar to what I used to get on my Trophy...dismaying. I used it moderately yesterday starting at 7am and it was dead by 4...9 hours isn't AWFUL, but it's hardly ideal, and definitely not what I know this phone is capable of. Suggestions?

    Got mine yesterday and got some really good battery life. Went to Disneyland for 3-4 hours and my phone was at 87% when I left. Considering I used it to take a few pics and to entertain myself while in lines, I think it's a great first sign.

    I wish I could say I was getting anything CLOSE to this. 3-4 hours of moderate use and it's down to like 70%. I'm seeing reports that the 920 had these issues but would improve over time. Hoping that's the case for mine. Else I'm going to have to take it back and hope for luck with a new one...

    That's definitely not normal. I left mine off the charger while I slept the other day and seven hours later, it had only dropped around 15%. If it doesn't improve you may want to consider replacing it.

    Played with mine the first day downloading apps and messing with the phone the whole day. It went from about 60% out of the box at 9am to 30% at 11pm. Very good battery life.

    Mine has been struggling with battery life, but it's been seeing heavy use. I charged it over night, and it was on battery save after about 6 hours. I did play a few games totaling about 90 minutes though. I'll have to hold off on a verdict until I've had it for about a week - when I'm back to "normal" usage.

    Amazing battery life here I can go a full day with heavy use with charging during the day.

    I just ran mine down until it shut off. The last 15% seemed to take quite a long time while streaming video, so I hope the battery calibrates correctly.
    What I have noticed is the first and last 15% drop in stated battery takes quite a while and the middle 70% seems to drop more rapidly within a consistent usage.

    Yesterday was my first full day with it, and it didn't run out of gas until about 5pm - this was with heavy usage, including more than a solid hour of my son playing with apps/games in Kid's Corner.

    Heavy usage on the web and listening to audio? 5 1/2 hours taking a few calls and a little video. That's the worst case scenario I've had. Battery Saver and 1 minute standby? Easy to get through a day with a couple hours of web use and audio. YMMV - 920
