    Extended battery really doesn't last very long..

    I was thinking about the battery life with this phone and past phones using extended batteries.

    I wonder if this phone just uses more power all the time in general or if it's sense or what.

    I've had phones in the past that would last exponentially longer once I put in an extended battery.

    But this rezound seems to last only a few hours more?

    What is your signal quality? My RZ at home with strong 4g has excellent battery life, including supporting a hotspot sometimes. At our RV lot with poor 3g the battery drains MUCH faster!

    -74 dBm

    Signal has never been a problem, battery is not terrible, I just expected more.

    Screen time makes a huge difference as well. The screen is the biggest user. I average -95dbm at my house and around town but my screen still is more than double the cell standby (most days at least 10% no signal) and phone idle combined.

    What do you mean by "external charging dock"?

    With this phone compromises have to be made. I do not like the larger battery!! So I have resorted in keeping 3g off all the time and just toggle it on when I need it. Also because I so spend most of my day in a bad signal area.

    But I do love the phone and live with it. And I actually like not being constantly interrupted by incoming emails and Facebook messages

    Like the other's have said it's the screen that kills the battery on this phone. Remember out of all the Verizon phones out there the Rezound and the iphone have the best screen display. I know the iphone beats the Rezound but not by much. I get great battery life with my Rezound. I have my screen turned up to 75% but have nothing synced at all. My signal at home is at - 85dbm. I guess it's how you have your Rezound setup. I am also rooted and running Cleanrom 4.5.
