ran battery down to 20% for the first time...phone crashed immediately.
I could not find the setting for when it shuts down at certain battery percentages, is there such a setting or is it just a scam that it makes you think you have 20% left, but actually cannot use it......or what? Is my phone screwed up, or is this a common problem?
Buried in information since getting this device 6 weeks ago (droid razr maxx hd).
any info appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

I would follow the directions above. Delete ANY battery management apps. Keep the phone off when charging if possible and run it until it dies. If that doesn't help have your carrier swap the unit if it's still under warranty.

It seems you are correct, sir!
After just one cycle of draining and recharging it has already increased my up time to 13 hours to reach 13%. I am trying it again and will let you know what effect it has. It also seemed to stop crashing as much, as the power gets low, but did crash once at about 17%.
Thanks to all who replied and make this community work!
Still crashes once in a while, like every computer I ever worked on, since 1974. Impossible to test every app with every other app which may be used together.
The more I learn about droid, the more I love it! The razt maxx hd is a work of art! An engineering feat that makes me proud that I actually worked for Motorola in the early 80's, when they acquired Four Phase Systems.
I put off buying a smart phone for years.......this phone made me get one immediately, and it is going to get even better, as the software evolves to meet the needs of the users!
Keeping it charged all of the time may be limiting battery life?
Since the phone was new, I never let the battery run down to less than 70 or 80 % , imagining that batteries have only so many charge/discharge cycles in them. It seems to have improved quite a bit since cycling it to 5% and back to 100% with the phone off, but I am still not getting the kind of up time some have been reporting to me. Either the unit is defective, or the instructions were/are incomplete.
Still love the phone though,....it makes the iphone look so sick!!!
