Good articles @kris on saving batteries and understanding what phone features use up energy. I'm kinda surprised to see a lot of people still wearing their batteries down completely when there are heaps of articles explaining that today's lithium batteries need charging a little and often, but I guess that's because owners have no choice where so many of today's phones have such poor battery life.

With an app like MyPhoneExplorer (http://www.androidpit.com/search?st=myphoneexplorer&t=a), it's easy to be syncing the phone's contacts/calendar/photos to a computer, and that forces you to charge it periodically on USB without making a special effort :*, rather than wait until the battery's almost dead.:'(

This Moto G tends to last 1.5 to 2 days, according to the monthly rolling average measured by an app called Battery Drain Analyzer (http://www.androidpit.com/en/android/market/apps/app/com.msd.battery.indicator/Battery-drain-analyzer-monitor), which feels about right for actual usage. The only features/apps which bring it below a day are ones like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS all on together, and 3D games, but even then it will last a full day. It seems like manufacturers are getting back to balancing uptime with performance - hurray! because that's what customers are crying out for (http://www.androidpit.com/survey-reveals-that-longer-battery-life-important), so hopefully we'll return to the 1-2 week lifetimes that used to exist with feature phones. :)
