Does this device consume too much of battery? I have checked for apps consuming battery when device is sleeping, but could not find any app keeping it awake.
Data 2G and wifi,when on, consumes too much battery, it seems to me.

Thanks

I use leandroid to toggle net connectivity. It turns wifi/data on every 10 minutes for 2 minutes. Connectivity stays on if screen unlocked (turns data off when screen locked again)
Even with this managed use and screen time of around 2 hours, battery gets down to almost 50% in around 7-8 hours.
I am coming from an MTK device, MTK was really power efficient.
However, I have read that play store services till ver 5 is buggy and battery hog on Kikkat.
How are we supposed to update Play Store Service to the latest version?

The device runs fur 16 hours with 3hr SOT for me on 3g. But if I keep it overnite it drains about 20-25%. Play service and Android system consumes maximum.

MEDIATEK was really battery efficient....This device consumes a lot of battery....Use greenify if u r rooted...and hibernate all google apps....

Now I am at 39% with 3.5 hrs of screen on and wifi always on, everything stock...this device has really good battery life, if you want to talk about a device that consumes a lot look at the LG 4X.

Just use Greenify and Unbounce. Initially when I had the phone, I too had a battery problem, which was much worse than yours. My phone would reach 20 percent in 7 hours with 2 hours of SOT.
Now after using Greenify + unbounce (xposed module), I have around 4-5 hours of SOT with 20-22 hours of Standby. Battery increased almost 3x. And this is with everything enabled - 3G, Sync, All location services, Google Now and no WiFi. With WiFi on, I probably get around 6 hours of SOT and around 24-26 hours of SOT.
P.S Make sure that you read in detail about unbounce. This is what made a huge increase in my battery.

Even I am using Greenify. Installed unbounce recently, it's a bit technical to decide which all entries to unbounce, so I may not be able to tune it to the best.
Any specific entries you think should be unbounced?
Also how to update to latest google play services? Why is the system not updating automatically to latest version? I think ver 4.9x is installed on Moto G.

Thanks

Hi, I've attached the screenshots. Your usage may vary.
For more help, you can look at the spreadsheet. The link is in the unbounce description
One thing I can tell you is that don't unbounce audiomix. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to play music in the background.

How does Unbounce work? I installed it but I can't understand what it does lol
I tried Greenify (couldn't freeze system apps and too lazy to search/pay to do that) DS Battery something (Xposed module, made my battery worse) and Intelli3G (italian translations are so bad that I can't understand what I'm toggling)
My life saver is LeanDroid atm, one of the few battery saving apps that actually works

Personally I really don't like any battery saving apps. They create more problems than actually solve them.

To greenify system apps you need to buy the donation app from the play store. Worth it IMO. Buying the donation package also automatically optimizes some apps (a feature I didn't know until today)

Now for unbounce:-
I'm guessing you know what wakelocks and alarms are right?
Basically unbounce just delays the wakelocks and alarms for a defined period of time, thereby saving tons of battery life. For instance the location wakelock by default is set to 60 seconds. I've defined the time to about 900 seconds. Think how much battery this saves eh.

Just read whatever is written in the unbounce description in its thread carefully and also a couple of pages to get a better idea. If you still have any questions, feel free to ask.

It may seem a too noobish question...but I had to ask this as I never needed these kind of apps on my last device...moto g2 is giving me a hard time.
CAN U PLEASE SHARE SCREENSHOTS OF ALL YOUR SETTINGS IN GREENIFY(DONATION) and UNBOUNCE PRO??? I understand that our usage will be different but still it will help me save some juice

Guys this is how my moto g 2nd gen battery is draining. It consumed almost 50% battery within less than 2hr. I constantly used 3g network, wifi scanning on, 1hr screen on plus browsing and 30 mins of music play.
It doesn't seems normal to me. Please suggest is it draining too much. If so I will replace it on flipkart.
Thanks in advance.

Tell me your exact screen on time. When I was unrooted, i used to lose around 10% battery per 30 minutes when browsing.

After days and days of tests I can say that Unbounce doesn't affect my battery life in any way lol.
