    Battery life should improve after a day or 2. Let the cache build up.

    Forgot to mention I was in 4G for about an hr of that time. Rest was in 3G or Wi-Fi.

    I like to fully charge my new phones before use. It's always good practice.

    Probably cuz his constant and your constant probably wasnt the same. Like my moderate and your moderate, my heavy and your heavy use might not be the same.

    I'm just playing with it plugged into the wall. I see how much use I can get out of it tomorrow.

    Let's get it straight. Battery reviews on the first charge are basically meaningless. Here's what is recommended when you get the phone:

    1) Charge that phone all the way up.
    2) Run the phone until the battery runs out of charge and the phone shuts down.
    3) Charge the phone all the way, nonstop. Nonstop!

    Do this with a new phone so the phone gets an understanding of the battery's range. After charging to 100%, unplug and use as normal.

    I do this with new phones, after an OTA update, after a factory reset, after a battery change, and at least once every 2 months. Keep in mind that Lithium-Ion batteries don't really like to be run down all the way so try not to do it too often.

    If you write a battery review, please mention:
    1) if you've run it down until it shuts off and then charged it nonstop to calibrate
    2) on time of display (on my D3 I go phone settings > Battery & data manager > Touch battery for stats > Display > Time on is there)
    3) total time running on battery

    Finished my battery tests on my Droid X. Now to run the identical tests on my new Razr. I'll make sure to first calibrate the battery just as described above.

    I let mine run down yesterday, plugged it in at 1130 last night and just woke up and its only at 50%. I'm assuming this isn't normal.
