    I only got 12 hours off charge on my MAXX yesterday. And I am happy about it....

    All 4G and the display was "on" for 6 hours of the 12 playing Words with Friends ans surfing (insert addicted evil laugh here... muahhahhahaha)

    All 4G.....Hmmm... thats really good! When I first read it, I thought Is that good? I than realized you said 4G. I've never tried using it on 4G all day. I must try it. I'm normally on 3G at work & every where else and Wifi at home. I need to take the 4G on a test run:).

    Im on 4G all day too. Its a 4G phone with a monster battery might as well take advantage of it.

    Yeah, I am impressed. I've certainly got much-much better life off charge, but I was hammering this phone.

    You are so right.!!! I am just so use to having cell phones with horrible battery life... my mindset is on saving the battery all the time. I am going to try using all 4G tomorrow and Sunday and see how it works for me. Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!dancedroid

    Yeah, I'm sure I could squeak out a couple days off charge if I used it modestly. However, (lol).... I am always doing something on this thing.

    Ok let me explain! When my head hits the pillow at night, my battery is usually at 60-70 % battery left. I like to charge my phone every night so I can have my battery at 100% to start the next day. I am a moderate to sometimes heavy user. Like Doc, one day I did try my best to drain it but I just coudnt do it. I watched so many video clips until the phone tired me out and it was still standing at 40%, Lol...

    I'm a heavy user also and after an 8 hour charge last night, my Maxx only lasted 12 hours. Currently battery is less than 5%, and I haven't used/seen 4G at all today. Web surfed, Words w/ Friends, normal texting/checking e-mail. It's definitely better than my D2 that would quit after 4 hours so I shouldn't complain, but I'm not celebrating a phone battery lasting the whole day. I thought that's what it was supposed to do.
