What ROM/kernel/settings are you using? I've never gotten over 4.5 hours.

I don't know about screen time but I'm right over 12 hours off the charger today and have 53% left. Most days I have between 25% and 35% left when I put it on the charger at night after 16 hours. No wifi, LTE on and auto brightness. Only had to charge it twice before the end of the day.

I will install GSam though. I'm interested to see what my actual screen time is.

I get about 3-4 hours of on-screen time and about 12-15 hours on a full charge This is about on par with my S3. I'm quite happy with the battery life as I was expecting much worse.

That's a little higher than normal for me, for example, today I'm at 15 hours and have 14% left.

On days where I use my screen a lot I get less.

The other night I was working on some late night research and my phone was plugged in and I noticed the charging light turn green. Knowing I had at least 5 more hours to go before I was done, I un plugged it, put on Netflix over 4G, streaming some hd movie my kids watch, since Dr Seuss about trees. Anyway, i let it play at full brightness and recorded the time and percent. It died at right around 5.5 hours.

I ended up using the best fit line (linear approx) and wrote a model of battery life as a function of screen tine, brightness, and 4g vs wifi. I'll see if I am find it.

But over 5 hours is pretty respectable though. I was impressed.
