Default [Q] What is the typical battery life on a stock/unrooted One?

First off, I would like to say that I have searched several times for this answer to no avail.

I just came from a Maxx HD (XT926) which obviously had phenomenal battery life. So I'm not terribly surprised by the reduced battery life moving to the One. However, I'm currently only getting about 8 hours off of the charger with 2.5 hours screen time. Via GSam, there do not appear to be any terrible wake locks or rampant apps running in the background. I typically observe a wake time of +/- 10 minutes from my screen on time.

My typical usage right now is some heavy texting, light Facebook browsing, a GroupMe thread, and that's about it.
System settings are generally screen brightness on one bar (from the notification pull down, not sure what the actual percentage is), wifi/bluetooth/gps OFF, NFC and mobile data on all the time.

I have disabled the location via wifi options, so that's not currently a factor either.

What is the typical off charger and screen time for you folks? I love the phone, but a bit frustrated with the ~10% per hour battery drain at idle...

Thanks in advance for any input!

unrooted this seems to be the norm. there's a slew of VZW bloat apps that will check to see if you are using them once an a while, also blink feed refreshing often will have this impact.

right now on rooted Ecliptic rom i can get about 12 hours up time with 3.5 hours screen and still have 45% battery left. This is mainly on 4g some WiFi. this a 4.4 rom and has the options to turn things off the stock system cant like blinkfeed.

-wait till the offical comes out ( rummored to be at the end of this month) it should help-

Thanks, Synisterwolf.

That definitely helps put to bed some of the concerns I was having.

I'm definitely not opposed to rooting, but if I remember correctly, build 2.10.605.1 doesn't yet have an exploit, correct?

Again, thanks for the input.

That seems low to me, even for stock. Granted I debloated even when I was running stock, since I was rooted. I was getting closer to 3.75 hours of screen time for that amount of time off charger. But like I said, I was debloated.

Edit: I also don't use NFC, so that was off too. Not sure how much NFC affects the battery, as I've never really used it on any phone I've had.

there are a lot of things that can make the battery not last. i know the bloat the try to see ya is one of them

@ op no exploit as of yet. but on 4.4 you can go settngs > apps > all apps and click the ones you want to disable. its almost like uninstalling them for the non rooted devices.

I think there's a disable option option in 4.3 as well, so I'll give that a try.

Completely stock, bloatware disabled. 2.5 hours screen on 14 hours heavy use.

Ouch... I'm way off then.

Has anyone compiled a list of safely disabled bloatware for these? Or is it kind of trial and error?

Stock won't let you disable anything that can cause issues, as far as I know.

Awesome. Now hopefully there's less chance for me to bork my phone.
