    why did they make the battery smaller on the turbo 2?

    it went from 3900MAH with the turbo to 3760MAH with the new turbo 2.

    You'll have to ask Motorola that.

    A guess: the thickness required by the new display reduced the amount of size for battery. Or, Motorola decided that 3760 is more than big enough to give 48 hour battery life for a moderate user. Or, anything bigger meant that the phone was either too heavy or too thick to also include the qi and powermat charging. Or, the custom motomaker cases prevent anything larger.

    I'd say that 99% of people need only enough battery for heavy use to get from wake up to bedtime. And probably this phone does that.

    May it have anything to do with the 810 being more efficient than the 805 therefore similar run time?

    Engineering decisions and trade-offs are made often.

    As Doogald said, you'll need to ask Moto for the circumstances that created the decision to use a smaller battery. I'd agree that it probably had something to do with size.
     
  6. My guess is "everything to do with size" in particular thickness when you consider the new screen.
