    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.

    Installed the ICS last night or early morning and have not been back on the charger since. Been on WIFI for 18 hours with some light web surfing about 30 minutes of voice calls and about 50 Google talk messages and texts. Time on battery is 21 hours 51 minutes and the level is 40%. I have not turned off 4G. Tomorrow I will turn off the WIFI to see how much of a difference it makes.

    I feel like I am in the Twilight Zone with my Maxx. Came off the charger 4:00pm Friday = It is now 11:00am Sunday and I still have 25% charge !!! I have been using the crap out of it AND the entire ICS download was during this charge.
    I've been waiting to get to 15% so I can recharge. I've been doing extra stuff like freezing apps and internet to try and kill this thing. Even downloaded an app to video call with my son and his iPhone, that call lasted 20 minutes.
    Wow.

    That's a pretty good ride ... when mine got to 20% I had to watch 4 Youtube videos to get it to 15% so I could turn it off and recharge. LOL :biggrin:
