    I have a battery queation as well. I literally woke up a few minutes ago. I just took my phone off the charger and already my phone is at 90%. My phone was completely charged. I am using an extended battery which I bought from Verizon. In addition to that my phone will freeze and randomly reboot? Could I have a bad battery or could this be something else? Thanks in advance for your help.

    P.S. I just finished typing my question and I am at 80% :(

    You've got a runaway app or process that's eating your battery. Go into the battery manager and tell us what your top 5 battery users are. Are you using an antivirus or task manager? Uninstall it.

    I stopped using the automatic brightness setting and that seems to help. I will continue monitoring it. Thanks again!

    I heard 120+ is dangerous. My phone has went as high as 114 before, but that was months ago. Now it peaks at about 105 at most.

    I think automatic brightness was killing my battery. I took my phone of the charger early this morning and I've bee running a live wallpaper all day and I am at 70%!
