    Umm, indeed, real drain!
    At this moment, I have a 'Discharge speed of 1%' in 26min44s, so , roughly 2% in 1 hour.
    Try installing System Monitor by Christian Gollner and check again (we'll be able to compare as well)

    Thanks for that - I got the 'lite' version initially and may upgrade later but this is what it's showing on the battery pages:

    My battery life also got noticeably better after 2-3 charge cycles (first charge only got me through 5-6 hours, now I easily get a day - both numbers with 2 sims connected).

    Your soft will be 'calibrated' after a couple of cycles tho...
    PS: the 'paid' version is worth. Dev can be reached on Google+ too, nice guy.https://plus.google.com/u/0/ ChristianGollner

    The app looks great so I may well upgrade it (I do the Google reward surveys and get free play credit so am always open to app recommendations!)

    In terms of calibrating the battery is it best to let it run down to say 5% and charge from there or should I try to aim for between 40-80% charge with regular 'top ups' (this is what a number of articles were saying when I googled this last night)?

    First, it's *not* about calibrating the battery: you need root and appropriate software to do that.
    I was talking about 'calibrating' the software, that is, letting it enough time and then data to make proper statistics :) anyway...
    About the % thing, don't worry much! Li-Ion batteries don't suffer from that any longer: you can charge when you need it (check an interesting thread in this forum).
    Then, if you start from 0% to 100%, you'll have an (almost) perfect stat :)
    But it doesn't really matter...

    Ah sorry I got totally the wrong end of the stick there. I'll let the software run for a few days and see what happens.

    Right now I'm at 56% battery so let's see how long it lasts!

    Cant complain so far, on both 2.0.2 and 2.1 we're getting 4-5 hours SOT and 36-48 hours total battery span.

    I actually just got the OTA update to 2.1... I'm really hoping this helps by optimising the OS a bit more. Guess I'll just have to see...

    first of all battery consumption in use can hardly be compared because there are too many variable in each use case but to give you an idea as to what is possible i can tell you that my OP2 in idle, after a few days of doing my homework and use my experience from the past and with currently 7 other devices in use from LG, Google, Samsung etc. i got the battery drain down to 2-3% in 14h of idle. idle drain is the only usage that can be compared while in airplane mode, else cell signal strength and the likes have too much of an impact and spoil the comparison. if you phone has a top idle drain regularly measured ( i do it each night ) the only thing that changes is display and use case which can be adapted to the expected need of battery life. my SOT on navigation and bluetooth music on 3G is around 7h average, depending a bit how the cell signals are "en route" and how hot the outside temperature is, the warmer the less battery life ( and the cooler in the very low temps around and below zero ) i will give you a few keywords:

    wakelock detector, greenify, amplify, xposed framework, tasker, app permissions in settings etc. that's how you can control your usage almost in full. FYI i have 8 email accounts syncing including 3 non-google imap accounts, dropbox, weather, calender and the full set all check for sync. location on high accuracy and my display on full brightness above 80% battery and on automatic below 80% battery. hope this give you ideas as to how you can get more life out of your battery without compromising performance or usability. ohh.. almost forgot, the OP2 but all my other devices are even overclocked and still provide such battery life. my nexus 6 for examples is overclocked to around 2900GHz and uses 1% per hour on full brigness while playing a game ( non-3D of course )

    Is this a typo or do you really get 100 hours of full brightness gaming out of 1 charge on your Nexus 6?

    So here are my stats... I think I did get just over 5 hours of screen on time yesterday before I charged the device but still feel that my battery is draining really quickly even though I am not on Oxygen 2.1.

    How do these stats look to you guys?
