I can't compare the Moto to the Xiaomi, but we just had the G7 power given to us at work. I'm amazed at the battery life compared to my Samsung S7 (with a 6 month old genuine Samsung battery). Admittedly my Moto hasn't got Facebook, Twitter and personal leisure stuff running, but I use it all day as a hotspot, emails, connecting to work intranet, calls etc and I'm getting 2 or 3 days easy out of it switched on 24/7. I was doubtful of fingerprint recognition but that is spot on too. Only issue for me is I find the speaker a bit low and find it has to be right on my ear to get full volume in environments with background noise. So, seems good to me but I'm only using it for work stuff.
Just to add when that, in the same way your phone uses much less battery when in airplane mode because it's not having to use the radio to receive signals, your phone will use much less battery when the hotspot isn't enabled because it's not having to pump out a wifi signal. I can't imagine the number of devices will have that much of an effect on battery drain. Even with none connected your phone has to work to pump out a signal ready for any devices that want to connect to it. So yeah, basically enabling hotspot permanently will inevitably drain your battery life tremendously.
Noted. Thanks for your help. I’ll give it a go without it turned on. I got mine with the mi band 3 too for £209 I think it was, insane deal!
Me too :D
