    It's hard to say since it's not out yet, but I don't think it's that much power consuming, Phones that can go into VR mode are usually hefty with their batteries.

    Since its not officially released yet, we cant give exact real world tests but, if your SOT is around 4 hours.
    Expect you device to last Sub 3 even 2 hours with VR going full throttle.

    Totally agree.. I guess 2 hours is the best we're gonna get at the moment, depending on the app too. But time will tell.

    Just to pick this back up, I see about 30% per hour drop in battery. That's better than what I see with the Gear VR by quite a bit.

    I started with the phone at 100%, streamed Walking Dead for about 1h15m, then played Hunter's Gate for about 1h40m. Screen was set at 100%, speaker was at 100% for the streaming, then 50% for the gaming. I didn't check battery life after the initial streaming session, but after the full 2h55m, my battery had dropped to 35%. The phone had become very warm by the end of the gaming session, but never hot enough that the phone issued any notification or warning to that effect. I'd probably have kept going a little longer, but the controller's battery was starting to run a bit low (that game in particular maintains pretty much 100% uptime of communication to the phone, so is surely very taxing).

    Overall, very impressed with it.

    It has gotten better for me also after an initial period. First 2 days I used it REAL heavy, but yea it can handle a couple hours like a champ. But try a 6 hour session. (I don't recommend this!!!! lol)

    Well tested for more than 3 hours is better than what I expected actually, so good job Google.
