    Defective or just the reality of it?

    So I got my rezound last wk and loving it...but I've found my battery drains pretty fast ...I get about 4-5 hours of moderate use....I've tried turning off 4g for a day and testing and I got 6-7hrs out of it....one night I had 60% before sleeping and it died when I woke up 7 hrs later....is that normal?

    I'm still stock and was wondering if my battery was defective or the phone is defective....I've charged the battery initially for hours after the green light comes up and had the phone off to charge. I've done this twice consecutively to give the battery a good initial charge...

    Also my phone runs 40c on average just surfing or checking emails or on the phone....

    My next test is to use the sleep mode at night and see how that pans out...I'm wondering if rooting n desensing will help....are the Verizon apps eating at the battery too?

    I've got another week before my 14 days for full exchange....my og droid lasts 1+ day on standby....rezound not even the night

    That's normal for the Rezound. Your better off getting the extended battery and dealing with the bulkness of the phone. When I had the stock battery in there I was getting the same as you. So I optioned to get the extended battery and boy does it last long. I can go a whole day easy and that's with moderate use but I have my background data tuned off as well as gps and bluetooth. Plus its normal for it to get hot while surfing the web on 4g. Mine does but that's normal. But if it gets to the point where its extremely hot where you can't hold it that's differnent. I have also been reading that some of the roms out there do eat more battery and that there is a bug in some of those roms that some of the dev are trying to fix. Like I said, get the extended battery and you won't be disappointed.

    I'd check your sync schedules at night. If your media is backing up late at night that could be a reason. Also if 4G is newer in your area they may be tweaking the cells, killing your reception and upping the battery drain.
    40 sounds a little warm if your reception is great but about normal if reception isn't all that hot and/or you've got your screen on a brighter setting. The screen is a battery vampire

    Doesn't sound right. I've gotten 35hrs with the extended battery, and 4G on only when I browse the web or watch videos. With the extended battery and moderate to heavy use, the phone has no problem lasting from 7am to midnight.

    Usage is so very subjective so it's hard to compare apples to apples. I'd say you are pretty much in range though in sleep mode you should be able to get through the night very easily. Want to kill your battery in a little over 2 hours? Use GPS navigation, have it running 4G and talk on the phone using bluetooth. Oh yeah, the display is something to keep an eye on too. A one hour show will knock power down 20-25% (OEM battery).

    What? No it should not be dieing overnight from a 60% charge. Check to make sure there aren't any apps taking up more than their share of CPU time.
    This happened to my dads bionic and it turned out to be the social location app using all of his battery, which he had never even opened.

    That sounds excessive. I have no problem getting 10-12 hours out of mine. How's your signal strength? Have you tried turning 4g off?

    Iv tried turning off my 4g for a day n it gave me one to two more hour of use...I would consider myself a moderate user of surfing txting occasional words w friends n calls lasting less than 15 min.....

    I think the most baffling part is that it died on me overnight w 60% before I went to bed n died the next morning. I couldn't even see what app was eating away at the battery. I'm gonna try sleep mode tonight to test it out...also the temp hitting 40c is pretty consistant on the rezound.

    I do agree battery use is subjective but I wanna see if I was over expecting....thanks for the replies ppls

    I also think the bloatware are feeding off my precious battery lol

    Go into your settings and make sure that your syncs are off I keep all mine off except for background. I also keep my 3g/4g, wifi, gps all off all the time unless I need it. My screen brightness is set for auto but I also make sure that I turn the screen off whenever I'm not using it. My battery will last most of the day but I'm on wifi at home and at work. 4g doesn't exist around my house yet and at work it's weak and spotty.

    At night make sure the screen is off and put it in airplane mode. If the battery is still drained when you wake up then you might have an app causing the drain or you have a bad battery/phone.
