Re: Moto z4 Bad battery life

2019-08-19, 13:13 PM

Battery life on this phone is a joke. I had the Z1 Play for 3 years and the battery would last me almost two days for the entire life of the phone. This phone will die before I get off work today. Motorola you need to fix this because I love these phones but this battery life is just atrocious for a 3600Mah.

That has not been my experience with my Z4, I am getting better battery life now than I did with my Z2 Force.  I charge every day, but I'm sure I could easily get 36 hours on each charge if I needed to.  If you tap the 3 dot menu on that screen and select Show Full Device Usage what does it look like?  What is gobbling the battery, network standby maybe?

Hi.

 

Agree, that doesn't look good - I'd like to take a look at your check-in data. Can you please update your profile with current phone, carrier and serial number -- this will help me investigate. Please make sure that the options under Settings > Motorola Privacy are on as well, and let me know (just reply here) if it's okay for me to look at your apps to see if they are a source of problems.

Need help updating your profile? See here. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Forum-Feedback/Complete-your-forums-profile/td-p/3339943

 

Thanks,

 

- Matt

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

I've updated and I believe my privacy settings are how they should be. Thanks

Android OS and cell standby don't even show up on my battery usage. Google services only uses 1% over 12 hours of phone usage. I'm on T-Mobile though.

What is your screen color setting set to?  Settings > Display > Advanced > Colors.  By default mine was set to Saturated.  I changed it to Natural and saw a big increase in battery life.  I like the vibrant look of Saturated better, but Natural is OK and gives me much better battery life.

 

 

Thanks for this suggestion.

My Z4 is lasting 36 hours easy. I don't stream or use the GPS function but I do have a lot of talk and email going on. I changed the color setting and look forward to getting a little more battery life.

I did that and it didn't make a bit of difference. My phone died in 11 hours today. Have had it less than a week. I used to run my Z1 play with 100% brightness and rarely on wifi while streaming Spotify for 5-7 hours + Google and games and my phone would be at 30% when I plugged it in before bed. I'm wondering if I have a faulty battery because it's so bad

Didn't you start a new post about battery life and Matt (the forum manager) said they would review your check in data?  Or maybe I'm confusing users?
