    Well as far as the guy saying to only expect 8 hours out of it is kinda bs because I use my phone pretty moderately throughout the day in a pretty low signal area, and my battery is at 50% with 14 hrs 16 mins since I took it off the charger, and its pretty consistent every day.

    HAHA Please don't call the people here liars when you have a Verizon rep telling you they downsized the battery.

    Droid3 battery = 1540 mAh, Droid battery = 1420 mAh

    That guy is full of crap.

    The people at Verizon are such aholes..I've gone in there so many times telling them about my battery problem and wanting a new battery and all they ever say is "oh yeah the battery life sucks I have to charge my phone by noon everyday" and look at my phone and tell me to look at my apps. Its ridiculous how they can't just give you a new battery or actually help you. I just ordered an extended battery for my phone hopefully I can get through a day without it dying.

    Oddly enough, 50% today. I had one phone call all day--and you know how wives are about brevity. Still I don't think that accounts for the 50%. Will go back to Go Launcher and try it again tomorrow without the Calendar widget. It isn't that I think I'll save with Go, I just don't like the Blur icons and such.

    Haha, the girl at my VZW said the same exact thing! She didn't tell me the specific app, though.. just said I downloaded an app that was constantly running and uninstalled it. Didn't really help though. I had the extended battery, too. So the next day I went back, a different guy said it was a problem with my phone and it was discharging my battery at rapid rates or something and got me a new one. Well.. they were sold out, so they ordered one and I got it in the mail today. Now, same extended battery but different phone, I went from having 8hrs of battery life to now having been using my phone for about 16hrs with 40% left. This is awesome!

    So, ya, I guess some people having battery problems, it might be the phone.

    So now all is right? Are you sure that you didn't do something different? On the first phone did you factory reset and then not sync apps/wifi settings? Did you run the phone purely stock, dial*22899, turn off GSM, discharge then charge 100% the battery on that first Droid 3, do without live wallpapers and widgets?

    Yep, I did all of that. Took it off global, took out the sim card, run out my battery a couple times, updated roaming, restored my phone after all that didn't work, manually installed apps, repeated the other steps.. all that.

    My new phone.. haven't done half that stuff and it's a lot better.

    My wifes week old phone plagued with these problems. 3 hr battery life, gets excessively hot, random reboots and the blue camera. Got a new one on the way. Mine on the other hand has none of these issues.

    My wife and I each have one. When I went to plug her phone in last night, I noticed that she still had 70% left after 15 hours. Of course she wasn't on it at all for some reason or another. Display didn't even register on the list. Mine was at 30% after the same amount of time with typical use during the day, and a little heavier use in the evening. I'm happy with the battery life we're getting. One thing I don't like is that Cell Standby is always at the top of the list.

    Agreed, it seems there are a few of them out there.

    I'm convinced that verizon sent out a bunch of bad phones. My first droid 3 averaged about 9-12 hours like many people's do but i had to get a replacement because of all the stupid reboots I was getting. I got my new phone in the mail yesterday and so far today im 4 hours in with 100% battery and my green line hasn't dropped one bit. I'm using the same battery, apps, settings, and everything. Theres no doubt my other droid 3 would be down to 70%ish by now
