    My battery life on my droid x has gotten a little better since I got it, however I have recently realized (last 2 charges) that after a full charge, the first 10% of the batter goes down after an hour or less of use (no matter what) then after that, the next 10 takes a longer time even with heavy use. Any ideas to what this might be? Is this a defect in the battery? Maybe im just being paranoid, but it is an obvious occurance.
    Any help to ease my mind would be very much appreciated =)

    just cause the battery says 90% doesnt mean its at exactly 90% - it can be 99%.

    Oh..duh, I didn't even think of that.
    So if it even goes down 1% the meter will say 90%?
    thanks guys, and sorry for the ignorance haha

    Why does the droid x do it in increments of 10?

    This might be off topic, but is there an accurate battery app that tells the percentage exactly?
