Must be something like 10-20 minutes, lol.

Regarding "always scanning", I dont think it's something that uses alot of battery. Probably even more battery friendly than other "location" services. Just because it labels WiFi as always on, doesnt mean it uses as much battery as actually being connected to a network. Personally, I don't care for all this location nonsense so it's obviously off. Regarding the location-based wifi, it's only smart if you don't know how to toggle WiFi when leaving your house, etc.

No probs Bloodsucker !... Screen on 13% of 34 hours = 4.5 hours..This is my everyday day phone.I would consider myself to be a light-medium user , I dont play games used for voice calls ( 5-10 calls), text messages, used as a time piece (checked every 1/2 hour or so), 2 weather apps constantly updating as I move around a lot, GPS always on , bluetooth always on, maybe 1-3 youtube vids a day..screen turns of after 1 mins inactivity...

Running existenz 1.5.5 dark edition on a locked bootloader.. using Next launcher 3D and a live wallpaper...

hope that helps ..

The phone maxes around 5-6, MAYBE 7 (I've never come near that though), hours of screen on time in total.

The 13% means that 13% of the battery used going from 100% to 72% was from the screen.

Tap "screen" in the list of battery usage and it will tell you how long it has been on.


This one's mine... ca. 70% brightness:
