    I've had this phone a few days now. Had X before. The battery is awful! Barely using the phone it's down to 40% after only being off charge for 6 hrs. I never had this problem with my Droid X.

    Yeah that is bad. My Atrix goes a whole day with normal to heavier use. But the Atrix has a 1900MAH battery. You might want to return it and wait for the Droid Bionic, which is very close to a Atrix.

    There are many factors that contribute to poor battery life that it's difficult to formulate and meaningful and supportive response to your rant. But I digress, how is your signal? Do you often travel to locations with very weak signal? Does your 3G connection go out a lot or is is fairly solid? Do you leave background data turned on? Are you syncing accounts? Did you charge your phone fully before even turning it on? Have you let the phone discharge to 20% and then fully charge it without unplugging it?

    ...You have something wrong with your phone, I hate when other people come in to a particular phone model subforum and say "your problem is bad you should bring your phone back"

    I have the X2 my phone still has 78% charge on it right now, Just got home from a 12 hour shift at work where I used it quite a bit all day without charging it once, and it was off the charger for almost 2 hours before I left for work. Oh yeah stock battery.


    We need to know ALOT more info then just your battery died fast... What software are you running, are you running a rom, what is your signal doing, wifi, bluetooth, all the transmitters/reicievers... what are you using and doing on the phone.

    I have and always had the battery setting to max saving. No background facebook or anything. Data disables after certain time. On a side note does anyone's phone rear speaker cause the phone to vibrate / buzz along with the speaker when a call is being made or music being played. Then when camera is used the camera clicks loudly and when not used shakes in the phone?

    My battery is pretty bad imo. I have everything set to battery saver like all my older phones yet just texting will drain this thing. The worst is when the phone won't send a text and you have to reboot the damn thing before it overheats.

    loving the battery life on my x2. Was playing some drag racing game today, made some phone calls, pandora at the gym for an hour, and still have 50%. So much better than my OG Droid.

    No one has any sound problems? With the speaker on the back or odd camera sounds?
