Default Battery life. ALL tips!

So I am only averaging around 3 hrs of screen on time. I have lux and greenify always active. 4G and wifi on every 15 minutes and have Knock-on turned to off and I still see people getting 5hrs and even some more. What kind of tips do you have?

Faulty phone, or some weird app issue, i would factory reset and play around without installing anything. If you still get those numbers, get a new one.
This is the only phone I've ever owned that easily lasts all weekend.
Im at 15 hrs with 2hrs screen and 46 percent left. I drive all day and play music via Bluetooth and it was sunny today so screen was at 80 brighteness.
Get a wakelock app and see if something is draining your battery

For some really really weird reason, I get better battery life when everything is enabled. I'm stock not rooted with EVERYTHING enabled, and I mean all the at&t bloat + LG bloat. I even have knock on enabled lol

Right now I have 14h30m of usage and 4h of screen on time, and I still have 40% left. Also I've only been on WiFi for about 2 hours today, the rest is all 4G

Screen time is not absolute. Playing games for 3h or watching movies for 3h is comparable to reading a book for 10h, because of a thing called GRAM. Don't let those stats fool you.

Exactly! With RR3 i get 3hrs and a little more. Browsing 7hrs. It depends what are you doing.


Maybe Levi Strauss should sue Apple too. He came up with the single button concept on pants first. Apple copied him...........

HTC - was great
Moto - is good'ish
LG G2- the best phone i had (for now)

My Experience:
1. Greenify
2. Clear RAM (Widget LG)
3. Use Wifi, limiting open 4G data
4. Screen Brightness 50%
But these things only improve a small part. Encourage use a ROM MOD
