    Verizon is ripping people off on Droid razr. Battery lasts six hours with display off constantly. Ripped off is what I got. Wasted my upgrade on junk

    Have you tried a factory reset since you got it? Something is eating your battery in the background.

    Well, you have that 14 day worry free guarantee. If it took you more than 14 days to figure out the battery life was going to be an issue, you ripped yourself off.

    If it hasn't been like this the entire time you've owned it, it's an app. Do what taxinyc suggests before you get all bent out of shape. And don't forget, there have been network issues the past couple of days. The battery isn't going to last as long if the phone keeps searching for a connection.

    If it's anything like the Bionic (which the similar hardware suggests it should be) then I agree with you. And us Motorola owners with OMAP 44x0 powered devices are in a good spot, since that is also the GNex's platform. We will probably see the same level of (application) dev support that the GNex does, if an app is GNex compatible it should work on our phones.

    If an unlocked bootloader is low on the importance scale for you, then as far as I am concerned you cannot go wrong with the Razr or the Bionic.
