Many Motorola Droid Turbo owners are reportedly facing poor battery life problems. The issue exists despite the fact that the device houses a huge 3,900 mAh battery unit under the hood. But the battery life sustainability of any device depends on various criteria. Here is a list of steps for improving the battery life of the Motorola Droid Turbo:

Step 1: Disable all Verizon bloatwares.

Step 2: Wipe out the Cache Partition on the device, but first be aware of the warning on Verizon Wireless’ official website: “Performing a wipe cache partition removes any temporary files that may be causing an issue with the device. All personal files and settings aren't affected by this option.”

Steps For Wiping Out The Cache Partition:

  • Switch off the Droid Turbo.
  • Press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons for nearly three seconds, then release the buttons.
  • Choose Recovery mode from the “Boot Mode Selection Menu” screen. To scroll through the menu options, use the Volume Down button. Use the Power button to do the selection.
  • Navigate to the “Android system recovery” screen. Now, press and hold the Volume Up button for roughly five seconds. And then, press and release the Power button located on the right side of the handset to display the available menu options.
  • Select the “Wipe Cache Partition” option. The Motorola Droid Turbo will take 60 to 90 seconds to restart.

Step 3: Calibrate the battery. Phone Arena says Turbo users should run the battery cell down to 0 percent. Now, charge the Turbo back to 100 percent while the device is still turned off. Next, unplug and switch on the smartphone. This procedure will apparently substantially improve the Droid Turbo’s battery life.

Droid Turbo users have reportedly seen a significant improvement in battery life after performing these steps. The reported battery drain of over 10 percent per hour reduced to a little over 5 percent. No factory data reset was required to arrive at this dramatic improvement, Phone Arena reported.
