    Phone calls kill my battery

    If I dont make any phone calls on my X, the battery will last about 2 days. Thats with alot of e-mails, facebook and a few other things with the browser. If I make or receive a few calls, my battery wont last a day. I have great signal strength. Anyone else have this issue?

    I get about 18hrs out of mine and I'm a heavy user.

    How many hours/minutes of phone calls do you get from it per charge?

    Exactly how long is "wont last a day?" 5 hours, 8 hours, 12 hours or 24 hours?

    How long are you on the phone during these calls? The X should get no less than 8 hours of usage out of its battery when doing voice calls...

    Now, 8 hours is an estimation considering all that is going on "behind the scenes" in the phone...but still, 7-8 hours is believable...but when you add in "alot of e-mails, facebook and a few other things with the browser", then you can expect that battery time to decrease accordingly...and I would say a conservative estimate would be 35-40% depending on exactly what the length of times for these other "activities" were since that monstrous 4.3" screen has to be lit up to do anything...

    So, straight calling to depletion = 8 hour estimation
    No calls just "other stuff = 2 days (and thats a hell of a bunch of "not really touching the phone" IMHO)
    Lots of stuff and a few long phone calls = best guess estimation of probably 8-10 hours...12-15 at best...unless you have done some tweaking(which is recommended)

    The other day my battery was at 80%, made a call and was on the phone for 49 minutes and when I hung up the battery was at 50%. 5 minutes later received a call and was talking for 16 minutes and the battery went down to 30%. This just should not be. I have a great signal and I have everything set to save battery.

    Whats undervolting? I stopped at Verizon today and talked about this battery with phone calls and they say that it might be something with the last update. They wanted to flash the phone back to just 2.2
