    Took my Droid 4 back to the Verizon store got a new one and put it on charger before turning on. Similar battery life compared to the last one, maybe a bit better. Is there any other way of deleting bloatware without rooting?

    Well, you didn't uninstall them, you just hid them. They're still taking up space on your phone. A really absurd amount of space, too. That gold game? 150 megabytes. The NFL game? A whopping 226 megabytes. Including all the other bloatware, we're looking at almost half a gigabyte of space being eaten by bloat. That's really not cool.

    Noo. Madden 12 and that golf game and blockbuster and most of the other stuff is actually uninstalled. The apps that are hid and mostly appslike the stock text message app, the music player, voicemail, and things like that that I don't really want to uninstall, but don't want to look at in that menu either... I'm not about to uninstall all my persinal apps to see how much stuff actually uninstalled vs just hid but I know a lot of the trial things and crap like that are no longer on my phone.

    You can definitely uninstall Blockbuster, Madden, and Let's Golf. That saves a HUGE amount of space.

    Those of you with battery life issues, can you check out the built in Task Manager app and see what's running? If anything is sitting there using CPU figure out why, you may have a runaway app.

    I just took mine back and got a new one. Do I need to keep the phone off while it charges, or can it be on?

    My sister's D4 was getting terrible battery life when she first got it, after taking a look around, I disabled "in pocket detection" and the battery life increased tremendously. On a personal experience with my maxx, i had the task manager killing all the moto apps that i dont care to use, (their gallery,social stuff, etc) and that caused poor performance due to the apps restarting on every wake, and this showed on my battery use screen. So i recommend turning off in pocket and avoiding putting moto apps in auto kill. just my $0.02

    This morning I was at 1day 3hours on battery before I plugged it in at work at 30%, and since then (almost 9 hours off charge) I'm at about 75%. Smart actions can really help with battery life.

    Sparkimus - How are you using your phone? Going one whole day without a charge for me would mean not even touching the thing. Do you have any suggestions on which smart actions to use to achieve these results?

    I took mine back and got a new one. I'm noticing a HUGE difference. That could play a big factor, just having a bad battery.

    In addition, I have turned off 4G/LTE and am just using 3G. This I think is also playing an enormous factor.

    Do you notice your phone switching from 4g to 3g a lot? I was, and I think this constant changing drained my battery. My house is near 3 towers and they are not all 4g, so it just kept changing. If your phone is doing that I'd really suggest switching on 3g for a whole day and see what happens for you. If it is still bad definitely go get a new one.

    Basically I have smart actions set to disable cellular data and background sync at certain times of the day when the screen is off. I also have the phone in CDMA only mode sice LTE isn't available in my area yet. I usually get about 3 hours of screen on time per charge, but standby time is insane.

    Smart Actions is really useful, just experiment with custom settings and see what works for you.
