    Hey guys Im new on here and glad to be a part of the community. Well I got the Droid Razr Maxx two days ago, I charged my battery while off till 100% (I had accidently turned it on once) then turned it on and used it a bit and put it on charge while on. I believe this should have calibrated it. I used it awhile and notice the battery shows near full green but its percentage is like 80. So I end up getting 16-17 hours outta the phone with about 4.5 hours screen use. It seems low compared to some other peoples...Do I happen to have a bad battery? :/ Thanks guys.

    I have the non-Maxx Razr, so I won't compare my battery life to yours but if you want to know about batteries, search for posts by FoxKat. He's written extensively about battery performance and has saved many a poor Droid's life. :)

    Here's one of his posts about how to calibrate your battery and another on maximizing it's life and performance.

    Sounds about normal to me . I can get 4-6 or so hours of screen on time out of a charge depending on what I am doing with the screen on. If i am playing games it usually drains faster, but my battery life improved after the first few charges. I typically go my whole day(12 hours) with 60-70% left when I get home from work with about 2-2.5 hours of screen on time. Then depending on the night I may run it down to 40% or so. Now keep in mind I am in a good 4G area and use it, also I do nothing to conserve battery, no smart actions, 4g on all day, email and facebook syncing, screen about 50% brightness, 6- 10 phone calls a few texts and so on. To me every phone has flaws but the MAXX is the best Android phone I have had. I can use it without worry of plugging in.

    Thanks for the input, can anyone else verify if they notice better battery life after the first few charges? Also, am I the only one who notice when you turn the phone off, then on, it resets the counter for time on the battery?
