    Am I the only one with weak battery life

    Just got the Droid 4 and so far I'm a but skeptical about the battery life. While it's brand new, it doesn't last as long as my D1 does considering my D1 is 2+ years old. I know it's hard to compare but I'm not really doing anything different that I did on my previous phone; unless G4 takes that much more power. If the battery gets any worse (which does happen over time) It would be as good as a brick for me as you cannot even swap out the battery.

    Although I like the phone, I'm seriously thinking of swapping it out while I can.

    How is everyone else's experience regarding the battery?

    I just got my d4 Saturday but have been using it pretty hard gaming social networking youtube texting using it as a remote for my tv and surround sound. The last part is mainly for my entertainment pausing the tv and turning the volume down when my wife is watching tv and have her think that its going crazy . But I managed to get about 13 hours out of one full charge. Much much longer than my thunderbolt. I'm thinking if I set up the smart actions and root and get rid of some of the bloat I may get 15-16 hours.

    i rooted the phone and downloaded android overclock to make use of the profiles feature of the app. downclocking the cpu while the screen is off helped my droid x immensely as i had about 2-2.5 days of moderate use with it set up that way. i havent had the best battery life with the droid 4 yet, but i blame 3cx mobile device manager for that.

    How do you use it as a remote. I am very interested in this!

    I am totally on board with swapping this b***h out!!! The battery life is infuriating & disappointing. I've rooted, blocked bloatware, and made use of the power save features all to no avail. Even being in class all day (and NOT texting throughout) and only making a few phonecalls or listening to music during my commute, I'd say I'm getting less than 8hrs of actual USE. Unacceptable. Motorola better pull an improvement outta their ass or I'm jumping ship. I've been a Droid loyalist since March 2010. This was a betrayal on their front. And the camera performance SUCKS!!!

    No problems here, battery life has been great, can go a day and a half and still have like 30% left. But I don't use my phone at work for 8 hours a day so that helps. Also been using a lot of smart actions as well.

    While it's not as wonderful as my old basic phone, which could go a week + on one charge, haha, it's a smart phone so I expected it to be worse - I just didn't expect it to be THIS GOOD.

    Yeah, yesterday night, before I went to bed.. I looked at my phone. It said that the phone has gone 18 hours with one charge. Granted, I only talked on the phone for about 40 minutes yesterday. But I do play with the phone a ton. I still haven't been able to let my phone die.. thats how good the battery is! I have no problems. The I use many smart acions... if the battery is under 50% the screen is 50%, My live wall paper stops moving under 30%, under 25%, background tasks are stopped, screen is turned to 25%.... stuff like that. Plus, I NEVER EVER use WiFi and 4g is active all day long at work and home.

    So idk what I am doing right... but the battery is AWESOME for me.

    terrible battery life

    modest use is getting me 7-8 hours on a charge. i'm not impressed.
    granted, i've only had the phone a few days. but mostly all i'm doing is receiving email. wifi is off. far as i can tell nothing is running that would suck the juice.
