Worst battery life. I'm beyond livid about all the comments about how great the battery life is. My HTC M8 lasted all day without dying but I have to charge my V10 3 times a day. I moderately use my phone and I have auto brightness turned on so I can barely read my screen now. I don't even use Wifi and it drains the data.
I have a great problem with battery of this phone, it worked fine 10 days ago when i was using Lollipop version, as soon as I updated Marshmallow, battery is so bad as hell, 1 percent decrease every 2-3 minute, Battery finishes up in Half day. This is a great problem, this is actually a software problem, LG should come up with this. If you haven't updated this phone please do not. its disappointing from LG :(
Frenchi13, 02 May 2016Terrible battery.. Wish I had known this before I bought the phone. I have no problem at all, amazing battery
Terrible battery.. Wish I had known this before I bought the phone.

I have to agree this is the worst battery only good thing about it is if you don't use it phone the battery holds up but the minute you use it drains quick. I wake up in the morning I check the weather the news and emails all about 20 mins of use my battery drains to 75%...now the problem is I use my phone like I use my computer like many people do you would think by now the phone companies like lg would come up with a better battery come on now we have all this technology and you can't come up with a better battery. This is just a way for the phone companies to make more money

MannyLegacy, 09 Nov 2015I completely agree. I've had the phone for a week now and LOVE it. The battery isn't any worse... moreYou mention a battery and 20 GB micro SD card coming in the mail?? How did you capitalize on this?? I am a Verizon customer. Is this offer through Verizon??
This has to be one of the worst battiers that made, I wish I would have never up graded from the Motorola turbo droid, best battery they ever made, I'm taking the phone back tomorrow and going with the droid turbo ll

Try download apps which can easily direct close the running apps. I would prefer you download the GREENIFY. Goodluck.
I just spent half an hour on the phone with Verizon regarding this issue.
It turns out my problem waa the stock email app not cooperating with hotmail. It was chewing through my battery in about four hours.
Now I'm using the outlook app and an hour and a half in this morning, with Pandora usage, and some web browsing I'm still at 95%.
Now this phone is as awesome as I'd hoped!
Just got this phone and love the phone itself, but the battery life is atrocious. My battery dies in 3-4 hours even when I'm not using it. I have bluetooth off, GPS off, only WIFI on (because I'm at home). I have the display turned down a bit. No apps running. No widgets.
Some of the power-extending suggestions are a bit silly. If I have to turn the secondary display off, why did I get this phone? If I'm going to deactivate its unique features to preserve battery life, why didn't I just buy a different (cheaper) phone? I could have just gotten a Galaxy and had the better battery life without the secondary display.
LG currently offers a free extra battery promotion, but I don't know if I'm inclined to be swapping batteries multiple times a day. My previous phone (a Galaxy S3) did not need to do this. It also had extended batteries available for those who wanted multiple days of standby time. Currently there are no companies offering extended batteries for the LG V10. I'm debating returning the phone while I'm still in the returnable window.
But pulling the phone off the charger at 7 a.m. and having it nearly dead by 11 a.m. with very little (if any) use is not acceptable. This thing just sucks battery like nothing I've ever seen. My wife's Apple watch lasts longer.
jimp711, 09 Nov 2015I have the LG V10. I have been using it allot for 3 days and so far the battery life has been ... moreMy V10 started out with good battery life then 10 days ago (3wks After getting it) the battery life went down hill fast. Unplug at 6am dead by noon with light use. Is your battery life still good?
This is crazy. On Friday at work my V10 started at 100% at 7am. By 10 am it was at 50% and by 12:40pm it powered down at 0% and I hardly used it. I only got 5 hrs and 40 min. But at home on Veterans's Day and Saturday and Sunday I unplugged it at 7am and at 10 pm at night I still had around 40%. This morning at work, within 15 minutes it went from 100% to 94% without doing anything. What do you think is happening at work? Could it be my work wifi? I love this phone and I'm ok with the battery life except here at work.
Coming from the Note 3 to the V10, I've noticed only a slight decline in battery power. And yes I much rather have shorter battery life and a replaceable battery than a sealed phone. With spare batteries, I will definitely be away from chargers way longer than those without.
Well, I've had the phone a few more days now and I battery cycled it three times. I literally let it go until it turned off. I am now getting better battery life. Not great but certainly better. I think what I'll do is when I get my new battery and charging cradle, I'll just go home and swap it out. That means I can use it aggressively at work and then I'll get all new battery life at home when I swap it out. So I'll never have to be tied to a charging cord. I'm liking the V10 more and more.
Vaio Agent, 09 Nov 2015lollipop is the main reason for battery drain!True, it is one of the main reasons.
My Note 4 battery got so degraded, I had to go back to KK. Most phones with lollipop these days are having worst battery ratings than 1-2 years ago.
M had originally the same problem, but Google should be working on it, after many months and thousands of ppl complaining. Disappointing. Here is the thread: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=165558
