The screen is the biggest battery drain on a phone. Try turning down the brightness. The Turbo 2 is a few years old. If it is a used phone, it likely has an older battery which makes the battery drain faster.

I can't say with the information provided. Since it is a used mobile it is hard to say what the previous owner did to it.

Re: Droid Turbo 2 battery drain fast

Based on all the other Droid Turbo 2 posts about battery drain issues it doesn't sound like much can be done if the phone was upgraded from 6.0 to 6.1 then to 7.0 then to 7.1.; nothing short of either a new battery or a replacement phone.  There are many "bad battery" posts on here for that phone after the last OS update.

 

 I bought my Turbo 2 the day they went on sale, used it for over a year and loved it.  I recieved 2 or 3 OS updates during that time, including 7.0.  After the last update my phone was not as snappy as before and the battery life was decreased.  Nothing as bad as you & others have stated, but it was noticeable.  When I bought a Z Force I gave my Turbo 2 to my daughter and she used it for another year or so.  By that point it was shot, so I bought her a new phone and put the Turbo 2 in a box.  A while back my Samsung work phone started failing I convinced them to let me activate my own phone and they just continue to pay the bill.  So I created an RMA with Motorola and paid them for a refurbished Turbo 2 and sent them my old beat-up phone.  It arrived looking as good as new with all the original Moto Maker options.  It has 7.0 Nougat, but is very snappy and is getting excellent battery life.  I don't use it heavily on most days and the battery lasts around 3 days.  When I travel for work and use it heavily the battery still lasts a whole work day, like when it was new.  There is a noticeable difference in how it runs & performs after being refurbished & shipped with 7.0 from Moto vs the way it ran & performed after using it for a year & a half and manually upgrading through several versions of Android.

You haven't provide any quanititative information other then to say battery runs down faster with screen on. That is normal as I said screen is biggest drain, followed by poor signal. 

 

Some things to try: 

 

1. Does battery drain the same in airplane mode? 

2 Does battery drain the same in safe mode? 

3. Try a reset and test before ANY  app is installed. 

 

If battery drain is high in all above situations then likely the battery. 

 

If you get a full day of use with normal usage then the battery doesn't sound that bad.
