    Hello everyone) I installed a clean os on my passport with autoloader and never restored it,so it's absolutely clean. It takes only 5 hours to fully discharge when I'm watching youtube through WiFi with native browser,on minimal brightness! Is that kind of consumption is normal?
    Thanks for reading.

    I'm going to say that most people don't consume 5 hours of youtube continuously... as for how much it drains the battery, I guess it makes sense to me. I'm sure my laptop would take a pretty big hit after watching 5 hours of video over wifi and it's battery is way bigger than the Passport's.

    I don't think 5 hours of continuous playing youtube is normal at all. On my Z3, I use an android app to watch movie and it takes only 20% to watch a 1 and a half hour film...so that's roughly 7.5 hours of continuous use already.

    When the other posted asked for the screenshot of the device monitor, he meant to include the period during which the youtube streaming was done.
    Select "last 48hrs" and post the Device Monitor screen with the graph.


    And if you really want us to help out, consider switching the device language to English and then take a screenshot. I agree that it's still possible to understand using the icons, but it would be easier for us that way.

    The iPhone 4 is not really comparable at all. Much smaller screen, much smaller resolution to handle, a less powerful/hungry processor.
