    Considering most phones come with 4.5+ screens with 2100mAh battery, F3 does the opposite. This should provide one of the best battery life out there in terms of screen-on time, on paper anyway.

    Can someone post their screen-on time for me? Excluding heavy 3D gaming/speedtesting/navigating/etc, just average usage like texting/browsing/light youtubing/etc.

    Yeah, I'm finding the battery life to be great so far, maybe even better than i expected. One annoying thing though is that, unless I am being dumb, the battery usage information is kinda strange. It has a graph which shows you the total battery usage and then a battery on number which I'm not really sure what it means.

    Regardless, here is a screenshot:

    My phone has been running on one charge for just over 30 hours and I am at 18%. I haven't been using it a ton, but I played pixel dungeon for about 15 minutes and listened to music on headphones for about 2 hours. Then normal/light texting and emailing and web browsing. Few short phone calls.

    I've only had to charge the phone 3 times since I got it, but my average seems to be 24-30 hours per charge.

    Sounds about right. About 1-2 days on a charge, with normal use. Its very good for an android phone. The wife got 2 days on the first charge.

    Here is the rest of what it shows on the battery stats page:

    Not sure if this is really indicative of actual usage since I've been sleeping, but it shows that it has very little battery drain while not in use.
