Default [Q] Is this Good Battery Life.

Quick question..

I got rid of my DNA a while back because of battery life but I kinda want it back. I have a buddy trading me his DNA and he just sent me a screenshot of his usage.

Is this average? I am looking to at least get 3-4 hrs screen time on this phone.

Thanks in advance!

I get 5-6 hours of screen time on before it's dead.

Same. I usually get around 5 on screen time with 12-15 off charger.

Judging by the screenshot how many hours of screen time do you guys think he currently has? I might trade him his DNA is practically less than a month old.

I have absolutely no clue, nor would anyone else. If you really want to know his on screen time ask him to install gsam.

What does it matter what his current screen time is? Two people just told you they get 5 hours of constant screen time and 3 hours would be a bare min with hard hard gaming and tasks. For what this phone is, it does fantastic for its battery.

And if you are spending 5 hours staring at your phone you may just be an inrovert. Lets think about this, if you spend 5 hours glued to your phone, thats 20% of your day blocking off everything around you. Thats alot of things to miss out on.

Is that 5 hour mark achievable with just LTE and no WiFi?

I get a full day (17ish hours I am awake) with at least 3hrs screen on and will goto bed with at least 20% charge left.

edit: I also have 4g and wifi on throughout the day - never turning either of them off.

The battery life has a lot to do with your signal coverage.

Take this as an example. For the first few months with the phone I worked in an office with poor signal reception. I mean bad. It would be hunting for even a 1X connection on minute, then showing full bars of 4G the next, just to lose it all 10 minutes later. (It was the building, not the phone). Now I'm in a new office that has excellent 3G coverage (4G seems to come and go, I blame Verizon).

My routine is the same. Unplug at 6:30am, moderate use throughout the day. At the old office I'd be down to 30% or so by lunch (12) and if I didn't charge it I'd die around 5:30pm. At the new office I actually forget to charge it during the day sometimes. It'll last until 8pm. And that's using the phone a good amount during the day.
