    I just got a new Droid Bionic last week. My brother got one about a week before me as well. I feel like his battery last so much longer than mine. What can I do to extend my battery life. I feel like he uses his just as much as me, but I feel like his last much longer. My first Bionic was defective and wouldn't charge past 40% so I returned it, and I feel like this one doesn't last as long as I want. Any tips or help? Thanks.

    Well that's fairly subjective. How do you use your phone compared to his?

    There has been an unofficial study whether draining the battery is good and I looked into this because of my Inc. There was a thread on XDA forum and it was found that draining to fully charge you do get a small boost in battery life. The tester also found out that the android battery meter isn't as accurate as it seems. Draining and charging the battery is supposed to be good for the battery in the long run I believe.

    In doing what, draining your battery?

    Use it til your battery is in the red and then fully charge it.
