    After not touching my phone for the past 6 hours, the phone has been on idle and yes it is connected to 4g with display at 20% everything other than that is turned off (no widgets are running) I'm also NOT using a battery saver app like juice defender, all the I have done on the phone is browse the internet for 10mins while I was on break and the phone is beeping at me saying that it has 10% battery already.:mad: I'm not touching the thing and its dead... If that's a normal day on the ReZound then sadly I will have to take it back. Just thought I would ask you guys if you think that is about right or if I just have a defective battery. Not to give anyone the wrong impression that I hate this phone it's just the opposite, I absolutely LOVE my hTC ReZound.
    Just an FYI the phone was unplugged at 6:40 this morning its now 12:10 and it just killed itself.

    Thanks for the information,
    New Guy

    Go to settings/about phone and check the battery usage. It should display what was using up resources.

    says 46% display - the screen has been used for a max of 30 minutes...
    18% cell standby
    16% idle
    14% voice call
    2% speed test
    2% internet
    2% android os
    6 hrs 22 minutes and 47 seconds on battery and its dead
    this is after I charged it and made a phone call earlier to Verizon that lasted about 6 minutes.

    Tap the cell standby and see how much time you have with no signal. If you are in a very weak reception area that'll east you're battery quickly.
    Also a battery will get better over the first 7-10 days of use

    I don't believe that its the cell standby since where I am located I constantly am getting 4-5 bars on 4g. Went in and talked with the guy at verizon, he was very helpful, told me that it sounds like a bad battery since I have had the battery for 8 days now and it hasn't changed. He ordered me a new I'm crossing my fingers that it will last longer than this one. Thanks again for all thew quick responses, just joined the community and everyone has been helpful so far.:biggrin:

    I too may have a defective battery. I bought an extended battery with the phone which should give about 1.5 times the life. The standard battery died in about 4 hours with very heavy use. I can get a good 10 with the extended with the same kind of use. The screen is a hog but I'm beginning to like this phone. I'll be taking the battery back if I decide not to swap for a RAZR Maxx.
