    First impressions on battery life . . .

    Got the phone this morning at 10-ish, it had about 75% charge leaving the store. Got it home, put it on the charger, ran the update for ICS (but otherwise did not power off for charging), took it off the charger at 100% indicated. Now at a little over 4 hours in, I'm at about 70%, with moderate usage (hey, new toy, gotta play!). Obviously this isn't tapping the phone's full potential, but even if it never got any better than this, it's still a lot better than I was experiencing with the Thunderbolt it replaced, as that phone would be in the yellow after about 5 hours, even with light usage.

    Another thought . . . I like the layout of the HTC a little bit better, but that may simply be because it's all I used for over a year. I do know, however, that the keyboard on the Razr is much nicer than the one on the HTC, and that was one of the things I definitely missed when I went from my OG Droid to the Thunderbolt!

    I'm assuming that your first charge to 100% was with the phone still powered on? If so, you should start over but this time, power the phone off before charging to 100%. You may find that you get even greater battery life. This only needs to be done once initially. You should also get into the habit of every 2-3 months charging with power off, using to 15%, then powering off and repeating the charge to 100% once more. This will assure your meter is displaying the most accurate battery levels, and will protect you from possible soft bricking the phone due to a depleted battery that won't take a charge.

    That's correct.

    That's what I plan on doing. Only thing is, I don't think I'm going to get it down to 10% by the time I get to bed, even though that'll be at maybe 2am - and nighttime is the only time I really want to power my phone completely off . . .
