    If your X dies in 8 to 10 hours, you must be using it (screen on) just about the entire time!

    With a properly set up and functioning MAXX you should be able to leave WiFi gps and Bluetooth on all the time and still have a big charge at the end of the day

    Mostly true, but it depends on how much use those features are used. My battery gets HEAVY use, as my Maxx is my 'everything' device in my truck, at my job. Plugged into power proves to be a VERY slow process of recharging.

    fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.

    You need to make sure your charger puts at 1A at the very least.

    Simple math. If your charger puts out 1 amp and your phone is fully discharged, it will take 3.5 hours to fully charge it as the battery is 3500ma = 3.5 amps. If your charger puts out 700mah it will take 5 hours to charge it.

    I've yet to fully discharge the phone. And I use it a lot(6+ hours of screen time throughout the day). Could probably do 8 hours of screen time on a charge, that's amazing on a smartphone.

    Edit: went down to 4% today, was out of country whole day roaming while on wifi when I could, taking lots of pics and videos.

    Solved my charging problem by plugging the adapter directly into the cigarette outlet. Bad extension y splitter

    Something you're all seeming to forget..your battery life is heavily dictated by your signal... I have terrible 4g by my house and I can almost kill this battery with normal use, in a day....but in a better signal area...it lasts and lasts...

    MAXXED OUT!!!
