So Engadget released their Razor review and my major interest was battery life. Obviously 4G is going to be a battery hog but I was hoping for greater efficiency. Engadget wrote:
Motorola Droid RAZR review -- EngadgetMotorola promises that the non-removable 1,780mAh battery will deliver up to 8.5 days of standby time and 12.5 hours of talk, but it survived just five hours and one minute in our battery rundown test. In our less scientific testing we managed a full day of moderate use. After an afternoon of browsing the web, syncing our data and placing a few phone calls, the RAZR was still going relatively strong, only dipping below the 15 percent mark as we approached midnight. Under light usage you may be able to squeeze two days out of it, but most likely you'll need to plug it in every night before you go to bed. If you're the type who really pushes their phone to the limits, we suggest you pack the charger -- without a removable battery you'll be stuck when the integrated power pack gives up the ghost.
Ugh... 5 hours. I'm reaching a point where I want to say, screw 4g, what's the point of having apps like Netflix if when you're done watching a movie you're only able to make a few calls before your phone dies. Exacerbating this is the fact that I can't swap out batteries. I'm bummed and not sure what to do. My OG is dying, but I had hopes of better battery life. Anyone seen any other reviews that speak to the longevity of the battery?
