My device isn't rooted and this is what I do to get the most out of the battery...

1. I try to never allow the battery to get hot in order to prolong its excellent performance. If you're charging your phone, don't run heavy draining apps as this will greatly increase the battery's temperature. When charging my phone, I usually set stamina mode to always on and if I'm not expecting important phone calls I sometimes activate airplane mode. If you want to make and receive calls just turn off Bluetooth, wife, data and GPS while the phone is plugged in to keep the battery temperature down.

2. I used to love the Juice Defender app which was able to automatically turn off Wife/Data whenever the screen is off but sadly it hasn't been updated in so many years. Now I just manually turn off WiFi and Data whenever the phone is not in use.

3. If you're watching an offline film or reading a book, turn off your WiFi and Data. Again, if you're not looking to make calls activate Airplane Mode as this tends to lessen the battery drain especially when watching 4k movies.

4. Delete any apps that you don't use. Especially the power hungry apps!

5. I only tend to set brightness to the lowest setting when I'm in a very dark room. There's no point in always having it so low in broad daylight like a disorientated cave-dweller.

6. When you go to bed, activate stamina mode (if you want to save more juice then also activate Airplane Mode) and just make sure that it won't affect your alarm in the morning.

That's pretty much it for me I guess. Rooting voids the warranty and that's not something I want to do so I'm happy with my current usage and performance.

Hope this helps!

You can also try to turn off the phone, this will bring excellent battery life
Just kidding

By the way, root seems to improve a lot the phone, but I have Amazon warranty and would be a shame to lose it for rooting the phone

Hahahahaahahhaha

Yes that's one of the reasons why I'm not too keen on rooting. Rooting the device will also cause some issues that currently have no fix available so I'm good for now.

I can capture excellent stills and beautiful 4k footage. I get around 9-10 hours of screen on time with moderate to heavy use. Everything works as it should so I'm very happy with that.

Well, by my own experience, going out to work at 7:00, getting home at about 18:30 (plus commuting, as I was doing it in the bus too), I was reading an EPUB the whole day (Moon Reader+), black background with white text, the app prevents the screen from turning off, and I hardly had any reason besides lunch break to turn it off, I noticed I had forgotten the cable at the end of lunch break and took out brightness to about 35%, enough to be readable for me, it was on auto until them, no stamina mode either.

I got home with about 40% of battery left. I was quite surprised with my results.

I get an average of 6 1/2 hours SOT with heavy gaming and brightness set to around 30%

Otherwise 2-3 days standby with medium to little use. I am impressed.

Ps. When gaming, is the screen running in 1080P or 4k?? How can we tell?

Thanks for clearing that. This means that we only get 4k when viewing 4k movies? However, by default we are getting 1080p which includes gaming.

It would be nice if we could run games in 4k. Why have a 4k screen which is only running 1080P?

Same as buying a 4k TV/Monitor and gaming at 1080P.

At least we should have an option to change resolution like a PC when gaming, would make sense.Even gaming at 1440P would look amazing. Some games have visible jagged edges which would be eliminated if running at resolutions higher than 1080P...

hey could you please us all how much you paid for the PC that lets enjoy 4k gaming? and how much room it takes.
I'm not trying to underestimate the power of Snapdragon 835, but you surely don't understand that even GTX 1080 doesn't play all the games flawlessly in 4K

Then you must not heard of GTX 1080 TI?? 30% better performance than the standard GTX 1080. I am able to play any game fully maxed, ultra settings at 4k with an average of 80-100 fps thank you very much...

With a heavy graphics intensive game you won't be able to achieve 80 to 100 fps running 4K. Please be more realistic
