    So, what do you all feel about the battery life of OP2? Given its a smart phone and dual sim how many hours do you think the battery should last on WiFi? i guess 15 hours is more than enough for me. But I realized something today once I reached office- that I have forgotten my charger at home. Shoot! battery at 10% at 8:30am what do I do? No spare charger/connector(dreadful USB Type C). So I switched the phone on no interruptions turned location and wi-fi off, just connected on 3G with both sim's active, and screen brightness dropped to the minimum. What do you get????
    6:30PM and the percentage of charge in battery 9%. Correct and I have received 2 calls and number of text messages. People should stop cribbing about the fact that battery life of OP2 sucks. If it does then carry an automotive battery with you, because battery life will always vary with the usage. Cheers 1+2...#Never Settle

    I've seen varying battery lives from users some o ly getting 3h SOT. This maybe because they were playing games or are using a lot of apps. For me I get arround 5.30h SOT on some days but as little as 4 on others. But I still manage to get through my day each time.

    I got around 7.30 hours of SOT on the OP2. no games. only WiFi/3G, whatsapp, Kindle reader, Quora, etc...so mostly it was just reading. i guess that's why...:p

    When I first got the OP2, the battery life got me through my typical 8-9 hour day. Around 10 emails, some social media, an hour of GPS use.

    I added Greenify and got 9-10 hours.

    Then I rooted and added Amplify with Greenify. I was getting a bit over 10 hours consistently. (Honestly, I thought this should have shown a bigger battery life improvement than it did)

    Over the weekend, I flashed the AK Kernel and now I'm getting around 23-24 hours of battery life.

    Summary: It was acceptable out-of-the-box. A few tweaks made it pretty good. Flashing a new kernel made it outstanding.

    This is after a semi-heavy day. facebook,instagram, twitter, taking videos/pics, periscope etc.
    With light usage I get 2 days. And I'm on the 2.0.2. OS
    And during the night it drops 4-5%, which is 8-9 hours sleep time

    Absolutely, some days you will have the battery last for good amount of time and some day it may run out, but it all depends on the usage, how bright the screen is, what apps are running in the background, etc. etc. i dont understand when people crib about battery...buy yourself a power bank :)
