    So I have my 3 month old N4 waiting to be activated until I can sell my Spirit.

    I've played with it a bit on WiFi, got everything set up like I like.

    Did a full charge, again, no service and only 29 minutes of screen time. It was only connected to the WiFi a couple times over the period.

    2 Days, 13 hrs. for a total of 61 hrs down to 15%.

    If Anyone tells you they're getting More battery time than that in any kind of real use situation...

    They're Lyin'!

    As a matter of practice you should not let your battery get below 15%. It stresses it, reducing lifespan.

    I have let a brand new phone get to 7-10% but just for the first few days while the charging system is calibrating.


    Most phones will actually turn themselves off around 5% because it's REALLY Not Good for our batteries to get all the way to 0.

    I use my phone for a few calls daily, and a few texts daily. I use data maybe 5 to 10 minutes daily, but I'm mostly at home or at work so I have tablets and computers on hand. I keep wifi, data, and BT off unless they're needed. I don't use a FB app, but I do use Instagram.

    Here is my average battery life and I'm not lyin'!

    Yup as a "text and talk" phone (no data and attempted background sync switched off) in a decent signal strength area I get around 0.5%/hr battery loss (over night), which would have it last 200hrs in principle if that state lasted all day too. So with little use your numbers are quite believable :)
