    RAZR MAXX

    Installed the xmas Jelly Bean update

    I picked up a tablet with jelly bean (Asus 300T, it's a great tablet for the price) and I really really liked the smoothness and look of Jelly Bean so I installed the xmas update. Only problem so far is Skype will not install. Otherwise, JB is a great fit for this phone! Very smooth transitions with a great look.

    That is awesome. Do you have a lot of apps on your home screens? I updated mine Razr Maxx and got HORRIBLE battery life even after an FDR and battery recalibration. I went to the Verzion store they ordered me another phone and I have it now without the JB update. I really like the smoothness of the JB update and the added features. I just switched my sim card over to the replacement phone and the battery life is at 80 % @ 3 hours off the charger. So I don't know what I am doing wrong but if I am still getting poor battery life I might as well go back to my original phone that has the leaked JB update.

WiFi is on most of the time but sometimes you just can't compare to 4G which eats up battery like crazy!

    4G and WiFi enabled, GPS and BT on as needed. Was using beautiful widgets flip clock with weather but am now using RAZR HD Circle Widget instead with better results.
    Screen on time averages about 4.5 hours but that seems a bit low to me. I have screen brightness set to auto with save battery checked.

    Some other things I do... I almost never "partially charge" meaning I'll let it drop down to about 30% before fully charging it - usually do this overnight. About once a week, I will let it drop down below 30% then turn it off before charging.

    I posted some screenshots in the battery section of the forums.

    One of the biggest battery drains I found early on was the gmail screen widget (NOT the gmail app). With it installed on my homescreen, I was lucky if I got a full day on a charge. I quit using the widget and my battery life went back to better than a day of use. Just for kicks I tried the widget again a few weeks later and had the same results... a drastic drop in battery life. I also had the same experience with my Xoom tablet.

    Another one is Facebook and I remembered David that you said you had disabled it.. Right? I uninstalled the app all together..I found it running all the time. Since then I am getting over 35 hrs..With 4.5 hrs screen time.

    I am not using widgets just the app. I just don't know what I am doing wrong to get such horrible battery life.

    THe brighter the screen is, the more power it consumes and according to the graphs, it is taking up quite a bit. I am at 26% screen today and average around the 30's.

    To save energy, set the screen brightness to "auto" and check the box for save battery. Overall, you should not notice a big difference in brightness but you will notice a big difference in battery.

    I'm lazy and just go into manage apps and kill it. It does however, return quite frequently. I'm going to uninstall it and just use the browser now as I don't do much on FB.

    If you have it on your home screen that apps is definitely a battery hog.. If anything limit how often it updates.. Also how often does email get updated? That is another hog..I manually update when I look at my phone.
