    I just got my leap. The os version is 10.3.1.2726
    I've noticed that the leap battery so far isn't what is advertised as 25 hours. Now, I don't doubt the leap. I'm just wondering if that software version brings it down. My classic had a different os version and the battery was awesome. Is anyone else running 10.3.1.2726 on any other devices?

    I have the Leap and Classic as well. I'm not experience the same issue but I've only had the leap for a few days... so far, it seems my Leap and Classic are on par.

    My battery should be doing better than this I would think? Are you running the same software as me?

    Isn't it up to hours.
    Don't quite understand what you're asking or saying

    It takes two or three days for your phone to settle in. It does a lot of indexing in the background when new.

    Ya I hope you're right. But I never had this issue with my classic or passport.

    I commented on your post in my thread, but here is a screen shot of my Leap's Device Monitor.

    After I pulled it off the charger last night, I did some web surfing for nearly three hours. I left it off of the charger all night and this morning used it as a mobile hotspot to stream Spotify on my MacBook and YouTube on my Xbox One for about two hours. I then used it to stream Spotify in my car via Bluetooth during my drive to work. Still have lots of life left and I'll be using Blend all day at work.

    "Up to 25 hours" means that you MIGHT get up to 25 hours of battery time depending on usage. It does not mean that you will get 25 hours of battery time. Think of it like gas mileage; your vehicle mat be rated at 35 mpg but if you drive really fast or stop/go quite often than you may only get 27 mpg's. It's an average, not an absolute.

    Great point to make. "Your mileage my vary" is the applicable cliche term here, I guess.

    I know it's not worth much, but it blows the battery life of my iPhone 6 and Nexus 6 out of the water. The battery life on my Lumia 1520 is much better than the Leap, but it's a 3400mAh battery and my experience with Windows phones is that the OS doesn't take too much of a toll on battery life.

    I under that concept. I'm just saying that my leap was draining like 10 % in like an hour which to me is odd considering it's suggested as 25 hours. I wasn't even using the phone heavily either.

    Just like Hybrids cars Toyota Prius/Honda Civic with MPG City 44 and Hwy 47 manufacture claim. You might not get up to the claim MPG it depend on your driving behavior. The faster you drive and the harder you accelerate, the less gas mileage you will get.

    Yeah that doesn't sound normal. Mine didn't drop that fast the first day I got it. Maybe adjusting the app permissions and breaking the battery in will fix the issue.

    Do batteries still "need" to be broken in?

    I don't know the science behind how batteries or made, nor am I versed with how an OS talks to a battery. I imagine there is some sort of calibration that has to occur in the beginning of a battery's life.

    Oh okay. My leap seems to be holding up okay. I just assumed the battery life would have been better. But it hasn't even been three days yet so I still have to wait and see
