Default Am I the only one who's got battery issues ?

After I unlocked the bootloader and rooted the phone it started draing quite a lot of battery, moving from 100% to 85% in less than an hour. Is that normal ?

Is that with the screen on? 15% per hour is normal playing games or watching movies.

Nuthin' but a 'Moto G' thang

Screen was not always on i used it normally didn't play games or anything. Maybe it's because I only xharged it twice does it need calibration or something ?

Unlocking and rooting wont have a direct impact on battery usage.

Have you checked for wakelocks. You could use CPU Spy to make sure your phone is entering deep sleep. 15% battery drain in one hour in standby is not normal.

Having the same issue. Phone's not entering into deep sleep for some reason. It's brand new with nothing installed on it except for cpu spy. so I dunno what's keeping it.

factory reset - always worth a try. Or wake lock detector to see what's keeping it awake. I had issues with battery when I switched from one WiFi network to another and no wake locks showing. Factory reset magically fixed it.

I know your device is brand new but I'm sure some junk sometimes gets in cache or something like that. Think I'd be inclined to always factory reset a brand new phone now.

I think to be fair, the phone was updating it's OS. It's not everyday normal usage.
