    I'll try to explain it the way I read it. Let's say your phone has been on for an hour, and your display has been on for a half hour of that. Your display will show as 50%, since the display has been on for half of the time the phone has been on. The more you are using the phone, the higher the display percentage is going to be. If your phone is only on and being used for 15 minutes out of an hour, the percentage will be much lower. That's how I saw it explained. :)

    Well that's the magic of a RAZR Maxx ;-) I know for a fact that if I turn on WiFi instead of 4G/3G on my phone then I get at least 2 more hours of extra battery life. I know that this isn't any iPhone 4S but it's still worth it. Well thank you MattyP for your great tutorial - - hope it helps others as much as it helped me ;-)

    Have 3 Razrs (2 Maxxs) and one Samsung Galaxy and an iPhone 4s in my house. IMO, wouldn't trade my Maxx for BOTH the Samsung and the iPhone.
    My oldest was aching to get the iPhone and I won't rain on his parade BUT I can see it in his eyes now he has it - was a mistake.

    No problem at all. I think alot of people just take the phone out of the box and turn on all the bells and whistles and then they wonder why the heck is my battery dropping like a lead balloon? And besides, if you start an app that needs wifi or GPS, it will say "you need to turn on wifi or GPS". But if you leave it on, it only chews on the battery. :)

    I have only had ICS a few hours but so far battery life is going pretty good. Dropped fast from 100% to 95% but it settled in after that. Going on a big trip tomorrow so it will be fun to play with some more.

    Damn :) that's a lot of Droid action there lol. I had the 4S before too and I didn't like it too much. Maybe its a bit more smooth then the RAZR because it' iOS but I would take my RAZR over an iPhone just because I love how skinny the RAZR is, I love ICS, and I love that it has a 4.3 inch display with touch buttons. Then on the other hand the iPhone has a 3.5 inch display with a home button -_- that just disgusts me over anything lol ;)

    Always! Car charger ready to go. I have to say so far very impressed with battery life. I had full charge at 10:30am and right now it's at 75% and I have been using it moderately.
