    Those of you with the Razr I was wondering what the battery life is like on 4g LTE. How long does it last with what type of use. Also is there any droppage of the 4g LTE to 3g and 1x like my Thunderbolt.

    I had mine charged 100% overnight last night. I spent quite a bit of time on it playing around this morning. I ran pandora for 15min, checked FB and email, browsed these forums, and then tried to get to know the phone itself. This is my first smartphone and I've severely overwhelmed with the amount of stuff. My battery read 20% around noon:frown: I'm hoping that when I get over the newness of the phone the battery will last longer.

    I don't know what the "droppage" thing you're asking about is. There were several times that I saw it say 4g or 3g today but I never had a drop call of sorts when I was using the browser.

    Congratulations on your first smart phone, mister d. I've had one for a couple years and I still can't put the thing down! These forums are a good place for answers!

    Give people a few days before you assess battery life though. Even after calibration, I have found it takes a few cycles and battery life usually improves from there.

    Two things about new phones and battery life:

    1) You use a new phone very differently for the first few (or more) days (i.e. your usage will normalize)

    2) There's something to the concept of the OS calibrating to the battery (i.e. the first few charges always suck)

    Don't make any judgments about battery life until you've had it for a week at least, that's all.

    That makes sense. I think I have a 14 day trial period with Verizon which should be plenty of time.

    Last night I went to bed at 11 after pulling the phone off the charger (100%). I got up this morning at 8 and checked the battery and it read 50%.

    The following Apps were "running" according to my app manager: (Facebook, Google Services, Sync Service, Date and Time, Weather, ZumoService, Gallery, and Multi-Touch Keyboard)

    One of the best tricks I've used with my Thunderbolt is to turn off the data radios when you aren't using the phone. Where I work, we can only use our phones during break times. When I'm on break, I switch the data on. Break time is over, off it goes. My phone used to be showing yellow for battery remaining when I first got it, now, it loses maybe 30% during the course of a work day. HTC has a widget to make switching the data radios off/on quick & easy. Some of you guys might want to check to see if Moto offers a widget for that.

    I used a widget (edit to add: Toggle Power Control) that has wifi, bluetooth, screen brightness, something that looks like a satellite (edit to add: figured out this is GPS), and what looks like a refresh symbol. Is the data radio one of those last 2?

    Omg. You are a smart phone virgin! Wow. I'm a sp whore. The wonderful thing is these sp's just get better and better.

    I have a moto bionic. I bought the ext battery (like 2750 mhA or so) and I'm using various battery saving features. I'm rooted and SqLite hacked.

    I am not in the office at all during the day. I tether constantly (unlimited grandfather).

    My life - account numbers, bill pay, work phone book, connection to my life - is all in here.

    I have to hit the changer every day about 2 pm. It takes nearly 2 hours and it's back.

    The 4g radios are crude right now. They will vastly improve as they evolve - kind of like the caveman just discovered pencil and paper.
