The files are no longer there. Did you delete or move them? -_-

Sorry, I don't know how did that happen. Anyways, it was

1 day 14 hours with 1% remaining.

The display time was 5 hours 46 minutes :)

That's impressive. Were you home the whole day that day or were you also driving around and were on 4G? Just curious.

Not on 4G but being weekend I was out and about most of the day. Importantly, I was running Juice Defender (similar to battery doctor), if you're familiar with it.

Or you can get the LG G2 and not worry about battery life.

Battery is the last thing on my mind when travelling with my moto g, it charges faster and lasts really long.. I get at least 30% battery left when i plug it in to charger at night usually even under heavy usage, like using Spotify and YouTube while travelling... Its a breath of fresh air moving from my galaxy s2, which had terrible battery life, had to carry a spare battery everywhere

I can relate. My Galaxy S2 had horrible battery life. And after about a year it wouldn't last me a day. Had to buy an extended battery (@4100mah) to help me with the fone for another year till i upgraded. My Note 3 gets me through 2 days.
