Screen is off. All apps are closed, etc... I don't even touch the phone while charging.
My battery life is incredible. I came from a g nexus and was lucky to get 2 hours of screen time. This baby I can get 6-7 hrs screen time. Or, if I'm out on work, and dont use the phone much I can get 3 days stand-by. That's barely touching the phone though... less than 1 hour screen time.
I did try changing out the usb cord with a motorola one (using the note ii white charger block) and it took 1 hour to go from 60% to 100%. So I'm definitely thinking something is wrong with the cord and charger.
