just ordered this today! looking forward to the battery life. hope it's as good as everyone says and that it'll improve even more after about a week.
Yesterday after first charge I took it off at 7am and when I put it back on at 1am it was at 40%. AWESOME! I was only on wifi for about 4 hours of the day and the rest was 4g. Had some Bluetooth audio streaming as well.
Seriously impressed with battery. Heavy data use for several hours today on 4G (wifi off and 25% display). I am at 14 hours and just rolled to 40% battery remaining. Definitely an ALL Day battery. Probably 2 days with modest use I presume. I traded the Razr in on Verizon's 14 day return policy. I was getting decent battery life with the Razr but couldn't pass up the Maxx considering it was the same price.. Very Happy
Just got the Maxx yesterday, came from the Razr which I had since 11/11/11. So far the battery life is phenomenal. I didn't have a big problem with the Razr battery life and loved the phone, but I had the chance to get the Maxx by handing the Razr down to an employee (a very happy employee now!).
I'm so impressed with the battery life that I felt the need to post here. I'm on 11 hours 50 minutes with 75% battery left with moderate use. The Razr would have been about half that left by this time. I'm very pleased! :-)

Ended up plugging in after 21 hours of pretty normal use and was at 30% battery remaining. Long day for me. Gaming and web on 4G data early and then wifi at home. Took pics and several short videos.

Third charge and I'm at 51% after 11 hours 4G podcast streaming, Netflix vid at breakfast, constant playing, CDMA/LTE, 3 email apps and 3 rss news feeds.
I've just started to use smart actions and I feel this is just the beginning. Woo Hoo!
Hey wait a minute, smart actions started on it's own and asked me how I wanted my ringtone volume at home, wow how did it know?
