Battery drain - possibly related to wifi?
I have had the Droid Razr for about a year now and has generally been a pretty good phone. But lately something new has started to happen. The phone will start to get very hot and the battery will drain in a matter of minutes. After testing a few things it appears that it is probably related to the wifi somehow. If I turn the wifi on, it will cycle on/off continuously, the phone overheats, and the battery drains very quickly. Turning the wifi off does not stop the overheating issue. The only way to stop the on/off cycling is to reboot the phone. This issue has already affeected my overall battery performance. Even if I do not turn the wifi on, the battery life is just not what it used to be before the wifi problem started. Anyone know of possible solutions that would allow me to use my wifi again?
Battery draining and overheating
I just accepted a Fido/Rogers/Motorola offer of the RAZR HD 4G LTE and received it late Dec 2012. A few days ago the phone overheated to a dangerous level (117 degrees) when left on a cushion and the phone went into some kind of protection mode. I placed it near cool air to cool it down. The phone heats up regularly a lot. Everyday the battery drains down from 100% to 4%. I have not downloaded any apps or videos or music. I have browsed the internet a bit and used phone and text minimally. Yesterday charging the battery (using AC outlet) for over 6 hrs only made the charge increase from 17% to 86% and heat up. I unplugged it overnight and the charge went down to 4%. I have looked at the tips on battery saving and followed instructions. Is this battery defective?
