Anonymous, 13 Mar 2013Good day O4X owners. I need honest to goodness opinion here. :-)
After the latest update (v... moreit should easely last trough that if you dont have bad apps or other draining things installed :)
1 hour browsing is about 30 to 35% max
half an hour calling is less then 10%
30 text messages say you type slow is 15 minutes so about 8% max
i think you can even watch a full movie after that or just last 2 days on a battery charge hehe.
your first few charges will be bad tho as the battery needs to settle.
my first charge was barely 3 hours use time now my actualy use time is over 4 hours and it lasts 2 days with standby included time for me.
your a light user based of that stats so no phone should have batery issues for you.
how can i get my bootloader pino please help i rooted my device and i wana unlook that bootloader to install JB
Good day O4X owners. I need honest to goodness opinion here. :-)
After the latest update (version 10H, not sure), how's LG O4X battery life?
Typically, I spend around an hour using the internet via WiFi, an hour listening to music, 30 minutes of calls (2G network), and around 30 text messages. Will the phone last throughout the night? I usually charged my phone in the morning.
I might buy this one, come Monday.
CAZZLE, 12 Mar 2013Totally rubbish. The battery life no more than 3 hours it lasts please don't waste your money... morebla bla bla this type of crappish posts irritate me so much.
you buy a device without having a clue about what your buying and not havning researched the facts before you spwe your false information.
the battery life is fine and as good as any other high end smartphone.
if you fail to use it correctly thats not the phones fault its yours.
its not a computer its not a playstation or xbox its not a tv its a smartphone.
meaning you can call and it has smart features like a agenda you can look something up on the web quickly you can keep contact with people trough chatting and so on.
its not a mirracle device the DO NOT EXCIST.
you will not find a device with the features of this phone and a better battery life PERIOD they do not excist as your expectations of a mobile phone are unrealistic.
next time do some research. its a fine phone for a unbeatable price.
Totally rubbish. The battery life no more than 3 hours it lasts please don't waste your money in this
I have the the new LG and the battery last no more than 3 hours it's CRAP the actuall phone over heats. I'm going back to the iPhone

KoKo, 09 Mar 2013Thank you. I have been here long enough to realize you are the go-to guy in case of problems :... moreits not so strange that we dont have better battery's were sadly just reaching the limit of our current technology.
the main thing they need to do now is make them more energy efficient but for example producing the cpu's ar the new 22nm or even 14nm making leds even more powerfull with the use of less power and so on.
thats the only way we can improve battery time atm untill they finalt find a way to store more juist into a battery.
the current technology is ages old and noone ever bothered investinginto the future as they all thought iit was enough while infact storing energy is the most important thin in the next 2 decades and not just for phones tablets and cars.
humans use the least power on daytime and yet solar panels only work on daytime so we need to start storing that energy for the night but right ow we need like 15 car batterys a house to store enough for the night.
ahh wel im ranting way offtopic here hehe.
time to go to bed :P
pino, 08 Mar 2013first thing to do it putit on the charger and leave it there for atleast 4 hours!
otherwise ... moreThank you. I have been here long enough to realize you are the go-to guy in case of problems :) I once was same as you, in the Nokia N82 forum.
As far as battery goes, I am sure I won't be amazed by it, I still wonder why aren't people able to produce better batteries for all of the devices that run on batteries.
KoKo, 08 Mar 2013Ok so I tried to post a comment but I am waiting for the mods to approve it, whatever.
As ... morefirst thing to do it putit on the charger and leave it there for atleast 4 hours!
otherwise you start off with killing your battery on the first day.
some people disagree with me on this but ive never had a bad battery so i like to think they are wrong!
second thing you need to do is update the phone to the latest firmware.
then you need to do a factory reset. (wipes data)
then you can restart the phone an start doing your things like disabling apps you dont need or couse batery drain.
after that your gonna end up draining about 4 charges to 2% and plug it in the charger again (directly at 2% or the phone will shut down.
thise few full cycles seem to have a positive effect on the battery.
after then you can just do whataver you want with it as long as you dont complain about the battery or heat :P
Anon1, 08 Mar 2013In short, Better earphone volume, camera is much better with superior quality than 10h, better... morethats exactly what i posted already.
but my point is nothing inthere is actualy usefull.
headphone sound is more then loud enough if you find it to soft you have hearing damage or are surely creating it.
if your camera is slow you should downloade 3rd party camera apps.
as for battery improving ive got yet tos ee proof of this but noone on xda seems to understand that showing you can last 2 days with a battery does not show the actual use time the battery gives you.
for that they need to go and browse the same contend for 1 hour then watch the same movies for 1 hour and then chat for exactly 30 minutes and so on till the battery is dead and then take the average time the battery lasts under use.
i dont care much for people showing 18 hours battery time i can get 7 days with the battery still on more then 50% but that is not interesting.
so its hard to find people that actualy test the battery properly and not once but multiple times. and then take the average.
and yeah custom roms can be a good deal im watching that but they always seem to have a downside with some parts not working or not working optimally which just isnt acceptable to me.
Ok so I tried to post a comment but I am waiting for the mods to approve it, whatever.
As I said before, I am getting this phone in 10 days or so. I ask, what are the first things you want to share to a 4x newbie like me? how do I save battery life, should I root it, do I need to be extra careful with it etc
