I am thinking of buying the G3, my only concern is the battery life.
Does the monster display's resolution affect the battery life much?
How much on average does it last and how much does the brightness affect the battery life.


Thank you!
PS. Sorry for my English :/

Search on Google, there are plenty of reviews covering battery life as well. Briefly, "surprisingly good" according to most of them.. not worse than competition (Z2, M8, S5) but not as good as its predecessor G2, means that it is good enough.

I have 100% auto brightness and am on 49% battery with 3 hours 1 minute screen on time. That's good.

All reviews are essentially saying that, despite the screen size, this phone basically outperforms everything else in the battery department.

For me, light usage - moderate usage.. the battery can last me about 10 hours. and the standby time when i leave overnight is just about 4 - 5 %

10 hours of light usage makes it as bad as the nexus 5! what is the screen on time?

So far I am getting between 11 and 26 hours with usually something in the middle 15-18 hours. This is on 85% brightness auto, wifi/bluetooth always on, location always on. 2+ hours of video playback and total of around 4.5 hours screen time in the battery stats

Truth. Really depends on the bootloader situation. Fortunately, it's nice that the root is available--at least debloating the phones of preloaded junk can be done.
