Hey,

I haven't noticed much difference in battery life since the software update. I still get a good 18 hours before getting below 10%, and that's using my Moto X texting, web surfing, Facebook, and a few calls. Curious to hear from others.

I have done the update, and yesterday I also switched runtime from Dalvik to ART.  I have not seen any problems with battery life--after charging to just above 90% this morning I'm now running down to 70% after 7 hours, including some surfing, texting, and downloads/emails etc.  Even did some fiddling with camera, but no voice calls. 

I do actively manage running apps and shutting down location finding, mobile data etc. when I don't need it.  My Settings/Battery analysis still says I can run 24 hrs on a full charge.

I don't use my Moto X much. I've been getting 48 hours between charges. As of a few days ago, I'm lucky if I get 10-15h. I found that my phone is being kept awake by the Android OS 97.8% of the time.

  • I'm showing 10h 44m on the most recent charge
  • The Android OS keep wake stat is 10h 30m

I just installed WakeLock Detector and hopefully I'll learn more. If you have any ideas please let me know. Otherwise, when I figure out the problem I'll post and update.

I did the update and have had horrible battery life since, immediately before the update I could go all day and only use 50% battery life at absolute most. I have most things turned off and only really use the Nook app and texting and would have no trouble. Now all settings the same I hit 20% battery life. Today I left the phone alone did not use it for anything, no calls, no Nook app just sitting around and I was down to 86%. According to the usage Android OS has used most of the power.
