    I'm pleased too. Last night I was still at 59% after 15 hours.

    Is that with or without powersaving mode on?

    Without. After being off charge when I got off it was at 62% first time in a long time I did a 12 hour shift with No charging

    SAME! love this battery, today I was able to go from 72% at 9am to about 40% at 3pm, and that was using wifi/data heavily and texting. My s3 would have died in those 6 hours..

    sometimes random apps use up battery life over night, but its only randomly

    I have been loving the battery life. I have had multiple times where I went nearly 2 days without charging and the phone was still around 15-20% charge. Usually I can make it through an entire day and still have way more than half the phone left. When I check my battery settings...the screen is always the biggest drain, but it's usually only 25%.

    In the last 2 days...my battery has been not quite as good as the previous week. Again...I have gone 40 hours on a charge before. Right now I am at 11 hours and have just under 60% charge. My screen % is now sitting right around 40. That's way up from where it has been in the past. I am thinking some update must have changed a setting.

    Even so...I am still super happy. My old phone would barely last 8 hours with moderate use. I can use this thing much more and get nearly 24 hours out of it on a charge.
