    Welcome to the forum! Try freezing the built in apps on your phone. That can save alot of battery . But only the ones you don't use

    How could you do that?
    Is there a way to customize the OS startup, like it's on PC Windows(unchecking apps or something) ??

    Ah, I know, but I think a disabled app will become enable after every phone reboot and you have to disable it every time you starup...

    Oh well Im sorry about that then. I rarely turn my phone off. So im good with that.

    Well some simple battery tips. Don't forget to calibrate your battery and also to not let it get really warm. You need to condition it. Also try to cut screen time as much as possible. Don't leave your homescreen on until it locks by itself, lock it your self. Multimedia also drains battery as does have a bright display. The more apps you have that use push notifications like email or facebook will also drain your battery. And having alot of widgets on your home screen will kill it as well!

    Ill look in more depth about freezing your apps and how to make it permanent and stuff..

    on ICS your disabled apps will not be enabled every time you start your phone so you should be okay with that. It is one of the better features of ICS... to finally make that stuff disappear (even if it's not 100%).

    Your welcome. Also follow some of devildogs suggestions. Calibrate your meter by Power your phone off and charge until it is 100%. You can check the state of charge by pressing volume down. Once charged to 100%, turn on and use it till you get the low battery warning (about 10%), then power off again and charge til 100% with the phone off again. Then you can use and charge your phone as you please. It is recommended to do this cycle every 2-3 months.

    Turn off notifications for emails, fb,twitter, etc that you don't need and change your emails to check for email as little as possible (every hour or every four hours or more is best).

    Turn off data, Wi-Fi and sync when your not using it. Easiest way to do this is use the Smart Actions battery defender.

    And make sure your phone is set to LTE / CDMA mode instead of global (it sets to global by default). Go to your phone settings --->more... (under data usage) ---> mobile networks ---> network mode ---> select LTE/CDMA.

    Upgrade Your Droid Razr to a Razr Maxx

    All of the suggestions in this thread are great but aren't all these functions a features that we are diabling, what make the phone so great. There is a much easier fix, extend your battery. You can get a Droid Razr Battery upgrade kit and get two and a half times the juice and keep all your feature and functions working as they are intended to. Checkout cellphone repair shop.com and you will find the kit.
