    @OP- turning off mobile data, or even 4G will help.. and turning off mobile data means you will only recieve SMS and calls (no MMS-pic/vidmessages) and no web/data access
    All I'm trying to say is if you use smart actions or a similar app like juice defender to turn off mobile data when your phone is idle it saves a lot of power.

    I use juice defender to shut of data when my phone is idle, I still get all of my sms and mms messaging, email and phone calls.

    I live in a 4G fringe area and my phone drops to 3G, then back to 4G. It will eat your battery. I cut my data off except when I want to use it...
    I get about 20 hours of battery life on my Razr. I also put in a home WIFI to help solve the switching back and fourth. NO COMPLAINTS HERE.
    I don't have unlimited data, so the wifi is a big help.

    Re: 100 down to 90% charged in 20 minutes is this normal?

    The reason your phone drops to 90 percent so fast is because of the way lithium batteries are charged. When the battery charges to full, the charger will turn off until the battery reaches 90 percent. Then, the charger will charge it back to full, and repeat the process until you unplug the charger. The reason you may think it drops to 90 so quickly is because it wasn't necessarily at 100 percent when you unplugged the charger. The phone only reports in ten percent increments, so it will say 100 percent until the battery drops to 90. When you unplugged the charger, the battery may have been around 92 percent or so, making you think it dropped quickly. Hope that makes sense

    Actually the 10% increments are displayed based on the rounded percentage. 94% will show as 90 down to 85% at 84% it will show 70% etc. You can see 1% Increments with several apps
    Without root including Gsam battery widget. It also shows lots of other information about battery use and it's free.
