    Good thread.

    I'm now getting battery life similar to the passport. I would peg myself to fall in the heavy user category, was only getting 6-7 hours battery life at first. I did the following:

    Step 1: download all your apps and update everything, this will use a huge chunk of battery so be prepared to charge soon.

    Step 2: add all your email and social media accounts, I set mine to 5 minute sync and also I selected the forever option, I think this just decides how far to go back for your message history.

    Step 3: turn off all my vibrate notifications for every app.

    Step 4: turn off the feature that causes your screen to turn on every time you get a message.

    Step 5: change my background to something with lots of black and dark colors.

    Step 6: most important, give the phone 2-3 days to figure **** out!!!

    After 2 weeks of figuring this stuff out, I'm getting almost 19 hours of my normal usage, which is quite a bit, I use about 25gb on my data plan every month and even torrent and use screen mirror to watch shows and movies on my TV (these will kill the battery quicker).
