    Question for Professor FoxKat and other battery gurus.....

    I upgraded my Maxx from GB to ICS over the weekend. Battery life was absolutely awful, so I did a FDR, which appears to have made life normal again.

    But the question remains: should the battery meter be calibrated after a major software update and/or a FDR, even if it was done as recently as two weeks ago?

    I did an fdr(not a requirement) but it made both of my maxx's run smoother.. I also noticed a substantial drop in battery life, so I retrained NY battery meters, then I installed bad ass battery monitor too.

    So though its not required, I think its a good idea, it'll be interesting to see what FoxKat has to say... :)
