    I agree. Current battery tech doesnt develope memory. Older NiCad did. But modern ones dont. You can charge mid way though use or at near depleted. I have heard its not good to let the battery go totally dead.

    This is strange. Had my Razr off the charge for only 30 mins and it's down to 95%. Not much running either.

    It's worse today. Been manually turning data off. At this rate it won't last half a day.

    You have a lot of awake time. I'm betting you have apps that aren't taking up much processor time, but are forcing the phone to stay awake so you never really go into standby. My guess would be Norton Security, from the list there, and maybe a few others. Why do you have Norton Security installed? Android doesn't need a virus checker, just a brain (e.g. if you're sideloading a wallpaper app from a random internet site and it asks for permission to make phone calls and have access to your contact list, DON'T!). That could be an issue right there. DaTuner is using a little bit, too (unless you're actually using it; if not, it could be polling your CPU in the background and making it so your processor never really sleeps).

    Also, how long are all of these off a charger for? If I recall correctly, the "time on battery" will be the time since it was last plugged in, not total time; so the above might be misleading.

    Another thing: do you live in a 4G coverage area? I see that your phone says 3G. If you have your phone set to LTE/CDMA (4G/3G), it will sap battery like a hippie going through weed, so you'll want to turn that off. Homescreen --> Menu --> Settings --> Wireless and Networks --> Mobile Networks --> Network Mode --> CDMA only. Or you can use this nifty app (free):
    https://market.android.com/details?i...Gdmb3JyYXpyIl0.

    Also, what are your exact Smart Actions? How are you manually turning data on and off? Realistically, if you have a Maxx in a strong 3G area with no Smart Actions set up, you ought to be able to get 1-2 days easy unless you have apps misbehaving in the background. What's your usage like? Number/duration of phone calls? Video? etc. This info might help us all diagnose the issue, because your battery drain definitely isn't normal.

    Could always check and see if you have the in pocket detection is on. That's the first thing I learned when I got my razr. That feature alone is a big battery drain.

    I've now installed Juice Defender. Got it set to disable data when the screen goes off. I created a white-list to allow apps like TuneIn and iHeartRadio to run with the display off but data stays. I'll see if that helps. Yep I've got LTE turned off. I have AnyCut so I was able to place a shortcut to the data screen of the phone. Same for CDMA/LTE options. When I get 4G (which should be just a few weeks). I don't plan to keep it enabled unless I need it. I do sideload apps (not wallpaper or p0rn stuff) I don't have a lot of money. We'll just leave it at that. Just to be safe, I have Norton. But nothing in the setting for that show it using background CPU. As for DaTuner its a guitar/music tuner. I do use it some. I use TuneIn and iHeartRadio 70%, 20% calls 10% texting.

    Did you check for pocket detection, like wyld mentioned? That's a useless feature that kills battery.

    The stock battery meter doesn't say what polls the CPU very well. It could be that you have apps polling the CPU, but not for much time. They would appear to have very little usage, but they would keep your CPU from going into standby. Unless you're streaming all the time, you ought to have more standby time. Try an app like WatchDog to see if you have anything going on in the background that the battery meter in Settings isn't really picking up.

    Oh yeah pocket detection is off. I agree total battery killer. Plus its a waste as it doesn't even work well. Got WatchDog. It doesnt show anything funny.
