    Take it off 4G :)

    You are going to see increased battery drain while using 4G over CDMA only mode. You can try and pull back other things to help you with battery life if you want to keep using 4G. Do you have social media apps updating on a constant basis? If so reduce the time frame at which they update or turn that off altogether.

    You can turn the brightness down on your screen. Change to a darker wallpaper. Use WIFI when available. Turn off vibration notifications. Really there are quite a few options. With little information in your post I am kinda shooting in the dark here as to what might help you. But some things to check I suppose.

    All great suggestions. I'll add to what Sydman said, by saying if you're not either streaming video (or high bitrate audio), or are not downloading a time-sensitive large file, 4G is really an unnecessary luxury, and like all luxuries it comes at a higher cost for the wow...in your case, battery consumption.

    If you give us more to go on, such as how you use it, what apps you most frequently use, how many email accounts you run, whether you are heavy into social networking, if you stream video/audio often, etc., we may be able to drill down to the biggest battery sucks for you and help you to extend your daily battery performance.

    I am also going to move this thread to the Smartphone Battery Discussion forum where there are the heavy-hitters of the battery department waiting to help you get the most from your battery.

    Yes, Smart Actions Battery Extender will turn off radios, background sync, cell data, etc (whatever you choose) when the screen is off. When you wake your phone, everything comes back to life. No need to run most of that stuff while it's sitting in your pocket.

    Exactly, and you're better off running the moto supplied apps, others can cause connectivity issues.

    But these two apps will make a big big difference on your battery. Bit when ics comes, you will lose the app killer. To kill apps on ics. Go to your home screen, hold the home icon, and the apps that are running will pop up, swipe them to the left to clear them. .. sorry. Story for another time;)

    Well I can prove one thing about battery life. I gave my GF my X2 to save minutes, but found out that both batteries can't hold a charge. They were at zero for weeks. Guess it's time for a couple new batteries.

    Are you referring to an extended battery, as in an external battery pack? If so, the answer is yes.
