    Defective battery?

    I will charge my phone until it says "battery fully charged..unplug from charger". but shortly after its unplugged the battery level drops to 90%. I usually keep all data/ gps and wifi off unless I check email and I only have a couple apps (none are social; I dont use facebook or twitter or anything like it). Im starting to think its not practical to use this phone as a phone...

    Mine has been the same way since I got it last Sept. I do not think your battery is defective. I use Juice Defender and Battery Indicator, Screepl Pro trying to extend the battery life.
    Here is a link that might help you too.

    Just a thought...Why do these phones come with all kinds of bloatware that no one needs, that sucks up battery life? Instead of the bloatware there should be apps and things allready installed that help save battery life instead of having to spend large amounts of time searching the market for these things, using tedious trial and error, and constantly going into settings and turning things on and off. WtF.. its a freakin phone!

    This could be partially because when the battery level is at 95%-91% the battery indicator will report 90%. You can use Battmonx which will accurately report the real percentage of the battery in 1% increments rather then 10% increments.

    Its a smart phone, not a dumb phone. As for the bloatware, Verizon gets money by putting junk on there.

    Freeze all the bloat and your batter life will increase a bit.
    You could try flashing a custom rom like fission.

    The way these phones work is that they charge until the battery is full, then run on battery power, then go back to charging. Because the stock meter only reads in 10% increments, if the phone goes down to 95% battery, your meter will drop to 90%. Then when it gets closer to 90%, the phone starts charging again, and your meter goes back up to 100%. That's the way lithium ion batteries like to be treated. It's not good for them to be on a charge all the time.
