    3) Charge the phone all the way, nonstop. Nonstop!

    Do this with a new phone so the phone gets an understanding of the battery's range. After charging to 100%, unplug and use as normal.

    I do this with new phones, after an OTA update, after a factory reset, after a battery change, and at least once every 2 months. Keep in mind that Lithium-Ion batteries don't really like to be run down all the way so try not to do it too often.

    If you write a battery review, please mention:
    1) if you've run it down until it shuts off and then charged it nonstop to calibrate
    2) on time of display (on my D3 I go phone settings > Battery & data manager > Touch battery for stats > Display > Time on is there)
    3) total time running on battery

    Spot on with your info.

    Finished my battery tests on my Droid X. Now to run the identical tests on my new Razr. I'll make sure to first calibrate the battery just as described above.

    I let mine run down yesterday, plugged it in at 1130 last night and just woke up and its only at 50%. I'm assuming this isn't normal.

    Mine ran for 6 hours with what I consider moderate use. I had to run my Sling player the last 10% so I could fully drain it and get some sleep.

    You hit it on the head my friend. A lot of people think with new batteries it is not important but it SO IS! A batteries, even the new ones - well old to us now - but you know what I mean, need to be conditioned. This practice will get you the most out of your battery and should be done with any new device or new battery.

    I charged it fully and then used it until the phone shut itself off (got about 8.5 hours out of mine) and then charged it fully. I will even go so far to say that repeating this process 2 or more times can't hurt. Battery tests and reviews are one of those things that just get all messed up all the time. Each battery will function different out of the box and even once it is conditioned. The other issue is the amount of "use" and type of "use"... constant video streaming over Wi-Fi is not the same as constant streaming over 3G or 4G... source of streaming is different too as to the servers like Netflix, YouTube, etc. This is why a battery test review is very hard to do and almost impossible to find the same guy testing different devices the same way.

    As a photographer another example of this is camera lenses. If we both bought a 100-300mm L series lens from Canon it DOES NOT MEAN the optics will provide the same results. Just like with glass - mass production does not equal identical results.

    Charger your phone fully... drain that puppy dry... charge it again... and give it at least a few days to really provide a solid result.
